August is coming to an end and with Houston Restaurant Week being an entire month this year, I tried to take advantage as much as I could. Being that I was gone most of the beginning of the month due to vacations and work, I unfortunately only had time to go to 2 restaurants. No more money in my pocket to be eating fancy.

So, my last restaurant I attended was for brunch at Haven. Eh, food was ok. Didn't really fulfill my tastebuds. Not sure if it was because I was in a ugly mood about eating or that it just really wasn't that tasteful to me. For brunch, they offer a 2 course meal. I ordered the Shrimp Corn Dogs which was probably the best thing I tried at the restaurant. They served it with a delicious shot of lemonade. The BEST lemonade I've ever had in my life. My main course was the Fried Green Tomato with poached egg on top mixed with Canadian Bacon, Marchand Du'vin, Hollandaise. The presentation of the dish wasn't very eye appealing and the first bite wasn't good enough for my taste buds. I probably wouldn't come back for brunch anytime soon. The decor of the restaurant however was very nice and earthy. I give them points for that!

virgin bloody mary :P

It was at least 105 degrees over the weekend. Being that the weather was so hot, I decided to wear a loose tank top from h&m and paired it with a turqiouse shorts I recently purchased from Jcrew. I have like 4 pairs of shorts in different colors at that place. It's so comfortable and it comes in so many playful colors. I just recently bought a salmon color that I cannot wait to bring out and wear.

I hope everyone had a magnificent Monday!

  1. You were in a bad mood that day? :( And I feel we have very different taste in food haha. The places you don't like (Relish & Haven) are places I enjoy.

  2. ooo i've been wanting to go there. i've heard good things but not about their brunch. so that's disappointing. anyway, have a lovely labor day weekend!


  3. the bloody mary looks delish! i'm actually from Houston too and need to go back and visit for the food!


  4. Despite not tasting that great, the food certainly looks delicious :)
