Placid and austere, shady and cloistered, Bunker Hill Village is ideal for starting a family. From the top-notch schools available both private and public down to the atmosphere, it’s not hard to imagine a brood that looks like you riding tricycles up and down the streets.

Yes, I Make Frequent Trips to Eurasia Fusion Sushi!
Eurasia Fusion Sushi opened where Zen 5 used to dwell, and it has a lot of recent history in the area, especially in my personal life. It’s where I celebrated my birthday for 3 years and running, it’s where I went to celebrate my high school graduation (when it was Zen 5). I’ve had long […]

The Charming Neighborhood of Memorial

Radical Eats markets itself as a vegan and vegetarian eatery in Houston. Conveniently located in the Montrose area, this is a draw for many local residents, but don’t be deceived by your own carnivorous desires: Radical Eats has some pretty radically excellent food. Possibly for the same reason you may not have heard of it […]
