Houston Restaurant Weeks Review: Union Kitchen Memorial

Another week, another restaurant! Houston Restaurant Weeks is probably one of the most exciting times in a Houston foodie’s life. We’re no exception. It’s the perfect time to go to a new restaurant you’ve been itching to try or select different menu items from some of your favorite restaurants.

This past weekend 2 Girls Who Travel shot over to Union Kitchen in Memorial to sample their Houston Restaurant Weeks lunch menu. It was three courses (appetizer, entrée and dessert) for $20.

How was the food? Glad you asked …

This oven roasted ceviche as an appetizer was interesting. Other than being almost bite-sized, it was covered with a cilantro citrus butter. Usually, our ceviche is preferred fresher with no sauce, but it was pretty good.

If you’re opting for a lighter appetizer, this grilled apple salad is sweet and refreshing. It comes with apple cider dressing, shaved gouda, oven-roasted tomatoes and candied hazelnuts. And there’s a delicious grilled apple slice on the side!

Now this was THE pick for entrees. It’s a poblano pepper stuffed with a three-cheese blend and plenty of delicious crab meat. As if that isn’t enough, it sits atop a bed of dirty rice. Yum!

Had to get this baby to-go! Dessert was the white chocolate ice cream sandwich: two huge soft and chewy chocolate chip and hazelnut cookies with ice cream and a delicious cream cheese frosting. Can’t go wrong with any of that!

The Union Kitchen Memorial is located at 12538 Memorial Dr., Houston, TX 77024. It’s definitely worth a trip during Houston Restaurant Weeks. The lunch was a great value!
