What Is It? The food scene in Houston might make you think of barbecue in giant-sized portions, but crawfish are another local specialty worth trying while you’re here.
Why Do It? Crawfish season runs from February to May in Houston, and its location close to the Gulf Coast makes it a wonderful place to get your crawfish fix. Popular crawfish restaurants to try include Crawfish & Noodles and LA Crawfish.
Good to Know: Crawfish pairs quite well with local craft beer, and there are many breweries in Houston to cool off your tongue after all that spicy seafood. For example, there’s Buffalo Bayou Brewing, Karbach Brewing, Southern Star Brewing, Saint Arnold Brewing, and 8th Wonder Brewing, just to name a few.
