Big brother Houston may steal the limelight as far as the dining stakes go – but Katy Texas has some attractions that those in love with both international and homegrown flavors may find enticing.

If you’re looking for a high end dining experience or simply want to find a place that will offer a wholesome family dining experience Katy has something to offer.

Take for example J-Dub’s Burger Barn. Everyone likes a great burger – but sometimes going to the local burger chain is not what you’re after. You want a burger that is cooked to perfection and made with care using the freshest of ingredients. J-Dub’s Burger Barn offers all of that and fantastic service as well. An unforgettable experience is the Homerun Burger. It’s made for a a big appetite. Three exquisite patties and bacon. With the usual (but crispy fresh) lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles. Add mayo, mustard, ketchup and three types of cheese – American, cheddar and Pepper Jack and you have meal that will satisfy even the most demanding of diners.

If you want that extra special night out and enjoy French cuisine then the go to destination in Katy is La Balance. Chef Oscar Hernandez produces all the classics with more than a little flair. Escargot, steak tartare (unforgettable), foie gras and filet mignon (great beef and made even greater with the care that has been lavished on it – do not order well done!). The duck is a great choice as well.

For a touch of Asia there is the ‘ Little V Vietnamese Bistro’. Authentic Vietnamese cuisine with more than a little of the fusion style thrown in. The Pho is something that is to be savored and enjoyed slowly. The Curry Prawns beg for a second helping. The decor and service are simply brilliant – style and attention to detail with a smile characterize both.

If you want to feel like part of a South American family then head to Alegria Brazilian Grill. This is a place where a great appetite brings great rewards. Try the mesquite fired grilled steak – complete with a chicken drumstick and sausage. Brazil on a plate. The coffee is also highly recommended.

Katy has a lot to offer the adventurous diner – or those who want the comfort of knowing that there is a dining experience that is well worth exploring. It is a destination that opens it’s arms to those who want to enjoy fabulous food and the fabulous people who make it.
