  • Not Jus Donuts Bakery
    On Sundays after church, Myrtle Zachary-Jackson’s family of cooks and bakers gathered to make meals for one another. Her elders rarely used recipes, so Myrtle had to study every step until she could replicate their dishes herself. Just as her grandparents and aunts imbued her with a passion for baking, she inspired her daughters, Andrea and Rosharon, to start cooking at a young age. When Myrtle decided to open Not Jus Donuts Bakery in 2000, she turned to her daughters and grandchildren for help in re-creating their family recipes, by then some five or six generations old. Sticking to tradition, every dessert at Not Jus Donuts is made from scratch. The ladies crack every farm-fresh egg by hand before whipping up cheesecakes with Philadelphia cream cheese, cookies baked fresh daily, hand-decorated cupcakes, and exquisitely designed cake balls and cake pops. Made without preservatives, their cakes range from standard sheet cakes to 3-D creations designed to resemble bowling balls and turntables and 8-D cakes shaped like time itself.

  • Natachee's Supper 'n Punch
    From the sandbox in the yard, to an interior that boarders upon the hyper-rustic, Natachee’s Supper ‘n’ Punch is a perfect blend of casual and quirky. Voted Best Comfort Food in 2012 by the Houston Press, the chefs sling old timey plates such as home-style meatloaf––topped with red gravy and a fried egg––, classic chicken fried steak, and a mammoth burger dubbed the "astrodome". Sides of cut corn, onion rings, and sliced avocado cozy up to entrees, as do cold bottles of beer, and Natachee’s signature punches, such as the Nat King fizz (gin, slow gin, and lemon) or milk bone punch (blackberry-infused whiskey, tres leches liquer, and milk).
