10 Best Things We Ate This Month – Houston Press
It’s the end of the month, and with that comes time for deep reflection. Well, maybe not deep reflection, but at least a look back on the dishes we regarded as the best we ate during the month of March. From dense, rich desserts to wacky brunch items, these Houston dishes cover quite a bit of ground and are all worth a try.

“It was the salads that stood out,” writes Erika Kwee during a first look at this newly opened downtown trattoria. “Served in a deep bowl in order to conceal the generous mound of soft ricotta under a mountain of purple kale, even the mini version [of the Kristalla salad] has quickly risen to be one of my favorite salads in Houston. The kale is lively but not scratchy, tossed in a preserved lemon dressing that balances salt, sweet and tang. With or without salty pancetta as an accent, thin slices of apple and generous scatterings of toasted pine nuts make for an undeniably tasty and satisfying salad.”
