This Week in Food Blogs: Your Water's Lemon Wedge Might Be Contaminated
Urban Swank: The ladies of Urban Swank checked out Nara's Korean Grill Room and have the 411 on the restaurant, especially what their favorite menu items are. During their visit they enjoyed a variety of Korean barbecue items such as the rib eye (bulgogi) and pork belly (kurobata samgyup sal). Each meat at Nara is wrapped with a sauce and rice inside a red and white lettuce leaf; they were told to let the meat be the star of the wrap and to not fill the leaf with too much rice.

H-Town Chow Down: This week, guest blogger Kim visited the new Black Walnut Cafe inside Lone Star Executive Airport in Conroe. While some people thought the chain soup, salad and sandwich restaurant would not be as good as other locations due to a limited menu at the airport, Kim explains that this location is just as good as (and slightly better than) other Black Walnut Cafes around town. She enjoyed her eggs Benedict and appreciated the thin pancakes.
