Local restaurants have taken a hard hit during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because dining out is all about sharing a community table with family, friends, or even strangers, it is ill-advised by medical professionals and disease experts alike to eat out during this time. For this reason, many of us have resorted to pick-up and delivery orders to fill in the gap for the takeout we so often crave. So, the good news is that you can still support your favorite local restaurants through this unprecedented and trying time.
Although there are plenty of restaurants that have closed their doors for good since March of this year, plenty of new, exciting culinary endeavors are popping up across Houston, Texas. Check out our list of top 3 recently opened restaurants in H-Town that you need to check out ASAP.
Street to Kitchen — 6501 Harrisburg Boulevard, Houston, TX 77011
Street to Kitchen is an all-new, “unapologetically authentic” Thai restaurant experience that offers both online ordering and drive-thru window pick-up. Load up on their traditional Thai dishes, like Drunken Noodles, Chicken Massaman Curry, and Pad Thai. Or, you can also indulge in their Thai spin on Fried Chicken, which comes in orders of 2 or 3-pieces, is sprinkled with crispy shallots, and is served with flagrant yellow rice and your choice of Spicy Thai Chili Cilantro or Sweet Chili Sauce. Whether you’re a fan of Asian food or not, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at Street to Kitchen.
The Original Hot Dog Factory — 920 Studemont Street, Suite 300, Houston, TX 77007

Now, the hot dog hotspot makes its way to Bayou City, dropping a menu like anything else we’ve seen before. Order your hot dog a number of ways!
