Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of global bistro fare at Babaloo International Café & Bar in Katy.

The elegantly laid-back eatery introduces a cosmopolitan twist to the palates of its patrons, boasting fresh ingredients and an ever-changing menu infused with global flavors. Bring friends for a meal of tapas, or shared small plates, alighting upon Cuban crab cakes ($7) or the empanadas Argentina, which burst onto the savory scene with seasoned ground beef and veggies nestled inside cocoons of crispy dough ($5).

The chicken lettuce wraps ($8) and the gnocchi di patate ($6) lend themselves to passing and instant regret for passing, and the ciabatta burger ($9) aims its succulent self to appease all 10,000 or so of your signed-in taste buddies. Sup the sopa de ajo castella, or roasted-garlic soup ($5), or bask in the garden-based ambience of the fresh caprese salad, which stacks ripe tomatoes with fresh basil and tongue-melting bufala mozzarella ($5).

Babaloo International Café & Bar encourages heady hungers to cruise down the full-plate highway with the carne asada ($11.95) or pollo asada ($11.95) dinners, which come with two sides and a smiling, sated belly. The sweet meal conclusions of the Babaloo chocolate mess cake ($5) and the very berry tart ($5) will bring back childhood memories of school birthdays and give you something to do with the flask of almost expired milk sitting in your pocket.


Katy Cuisine magazine and the Houston Chronicle featured Babaloo International Café & Bar. Eighty-four percent of Urbanspooners recommend it.

  • I love that the tapas are "international" and not restricted to one region. It's a nice quaint place... and let's not forget about the weekend entertainment. – Chiwawah, Urbanspoon
  • When there's not sports on the TV, there's a wonderful slide show of the owners' world travels. It's a sweet, if not entertaining, touch. – Syd Kearney, Houston Chronicle

Babaloo International Cafe & Bar

Though the chefs at Babaloo International Cafe & Bar were inspired by the sharable small plates of Spain, they didn't limit themselves to just Spanish dishes. Instead, they craft appetizers and down-sized entrees of cuisines from around the world. This creates a varied menu, with prosciutto-wrapped asparagus appearing beside miniature beef wellingtons and Cuban crab cakes made with plantains. These dishes pair well with wines selected from the vineyards of Spain, Portugal, Argentina, and Australia, to create meals that are both light and filling, much like four courses of flavored heliums. When evening turns to night, the restaurant becomes a hotspot for dancing, with theme parties, hip-hop nights, and salsa dancing.
