The 10 Best Places to Eat in Westchase

Relatively new to the Westchase scene and occupying the former space of Wolfgang Puck's ill-fated fast-casual concept, Sabine River Cafe seems destined to succeed in a spot where others have failed. Robb Walsh loved the paneed rabbit at this inexpensive yet tasty Texas-Cajun fusion restaurant, while others praise their breakfasts like the "Toledo Bend" Benedict (pictured above) and the Crème Brule Lost Bread.
5. Manena's, 11018 Westheimer
One of the few Argentinean restaurants in town and arguably one of the more authentic, Manena's serves breakfast, lunch and early dinner to Houston's small Argentinean ex-pat community and those lucky enough to stumble upon the little cafe. We recommend the extraordinary empanadas, which make a filling meal any time of day, or the milanesa sandwich. And don't forget to grab a few delicacies from the wonderous pastry case before you go.

4. Pho One, 11148 Westheimer
This year's Best of Houston® winner for Best Pho, this unassuming little Vietnamese restaurant (which shares the same red awning-ed strip center as Bistro Le Cep) is long on both service and great food. The pho here is made from the same recipe as the famous soup at Pho Tau Bay back in Saigon. Why? Because the owners are the grandchildren of famous pho restauranteur Y Van Vu. Not that pho is the restaurant's only selling point -- it offers delicious bun and com dia as well.
