Mint Spice Bistro's made-to-order dishes are lovingly blended with fresh ingredients and spices for fusion-filled flavorful entrees. Start by appointing one of Mint's dinner appetizers—such as flaky samosas ($5–$7) and ginger- and garlic-seasoned lamb kebabs ($8)—as ambassador to your mouth, granting it diplomatic immunity to assassinate hunger pains and double agents at will. Afterwards, treat tongue buds to succulent broiled-salmon tandoori ($14), fiery curry vindaloo ($12–$15), and the decadent korma, a three-part harmony of almond, cashew, and pistachio cream sauce with garlic, lemon, and naan ($10 for vegetables, $12 for chicken, $14 for lamb). Pair dishes with sides such as jalapeño and goat-cheese naan ($3.50) and the daal makhani, a combo of gently simmered black lentils cooked with tomatoes, cilantro, and a touch of cream ($6).
Aristotle Grill packs its menu with savory Mediterranean cuisine that deals a delicious blow to hunger pangs. Begin the edible Mediterranean journey with a starter of hummus ($3.99), feta cheese with pita and walnuts ($3.99), or baba gannouj (roasted eggplant with olive oil, $3.99). Eaters can also enjoy a five-piece dish of buffalo wings ($5.99), which were invented by the Greeks after their cooks ran out of minotaur wings, before satisfying empty bellies with a traditional gyro ($5.99), a pita burger ($6.99), or the herbivore-friendly falafel ($7.99). Beef, steak, lamb, and chicken kabob dinners ($8.99+) also grace plates with their meaty presence and are served with rice and salad to preempt orders for rice and salad.
The original Ragin' Cajun joint opened in 1974, treating visitors to hearty po' boys, red beans and rice, and authentic Louisiana boiled crawfish. Today, visitors make the pilgrimage to one of five area locations, including the Woodlands location, newly-opened in 2014, plopping down at tables to sup on meals of Gulf Coast shrimp and crab, gumbos, rib eye, and homemade bread pudding. The intense flavors and cuisine of southwestern Louisiana unfold in a dining room decked with vintage signage, college-sports memorabilia, and buzzing neon. Ragin' Cajun also keeps customers in the know with a Craw Club and can customize catering packages for off-site Acadian feasts, filling banquet halls with food, DJs, and live zydeco bands.
G3 Great Greek Grill's three owners, who came together over their love of Greek food, opened the first of their five Houston–area eateries to bring traditional Greek dishes to fast, casual diners. Unlike most Greek restaurants, where the eats come out of the kitchen in a set way, G3 offers patrons a choice between building their own gyros, gliders, or pita sandwiches and devouring classic Mediterranean morsels. G3's chefs also make each generously portioned dish quickly to get patrons in and out the door and on with their lives. In addition to slinging custom falafel to dining-in customers, the grill delivers vittles to houses and caters parties and Greek gods' rap battles.
