Mr. Wish

So, I was drawn to the attention fo the cute little paw waffles...
Which brought me here to Mr. Wish.
These are the cute waffles that I saw.  They come in 3 flavors, each order has 4 pieces.  And yes, they come in the cute shape of an animal paw.
They are just too adorable!!!!!
As you guessed it, I cannot help myself.  So, I got the order of the red bean, and it is actually pretty well made.  Order took about 5 mins.  A wee tad longer than waiting for your drink order.  

If you do get a chance to go, try the red bean and the custard.  Both are pretty good.  I also got a fruit tea, which they used real fruit.  Highly recommended.  Given so many tea shop in the area, they really got a product to make themselves stand out.

Bodard Vietnamese

My mom introduced me to Bodard.
But first! Must have Vietnamese Iced Coffee.  Not very many places do the old fashion coffee drip in front of you anymore.  In the old days you get a small glass of condensed milk, little coffee filter with grounds and water inside.  You just have to watch it finish dripping.  Then, separately you get a glass of ice, and you pour your hot coffee over the ice, that's how you get the Iced Vietnamese Coffee (Cafe Su Da) but now they are pre-mixed.
The server didn't even ask us, and she already knew what we wanted to order like she has psychic power.  She put us down for their famous Bodard rolls and a bowl of pho.  The rolls are much like a summer roll, wrapped with thin rice wrap paper, grilled pork, lettuce, cucumber, carrots and crunchy roll in the middle.  That's what makes this dish popular.  Then you dip in this warm sauce, which I still haven't really made up my mind on that yet.  It's a good combo, but it's fine without the sauce as well.

Tommy's Seafood

When I am in the Clear Lake area, I like to go to Tommy's
They have great deals on oysters on the shell. 
My favorite dish here, Jamalaya Pasta.  They have andouille sausage, chicken, bell pepper, mushroom, pasta.  The sauce is so good, I just kept coming back for it.
It's rare that I pass by the Space Center, and it never ceases to amaze me that this vehicle that went into space is right here on land for us to view.

Mian Chinese

Kept walking pass Mian when I go to the Snowy Village.  Finally got a chance to stop in.
On their placemat they explain their famous mung bean soup.
Turns out it was super hot, guess this is a fresh batch.  But even though they said they have light sugar, it doesn't seem to have much taste to it.
Chili Oil dumpling, super spicy, no soup that comes with it.  Pork filling that is quite generous.  Too bad it's super spicy for me.
Here's the House Beef Noodle that can be made not spicy.  Which is very flavorful, the broth is well mixed.  Obviously with beef chunks, bok chop, Sun Noodles (aka egg noodles), and scallion.
Here's the Intestine Noodle dish.  It has pork intestines, bok chop, and noodles.  The soup is somewhat spicy even though we've asked the server to go easy on the spiciness of the dish, but came out to be quite spicy.  I barely had couple of bites and had to throw in the towel.

When we went, it was at the open.  They barely got stuff ready for us.  Food did come out very quickly, the mung bean soup was made fresh so took a bit.

Went to Roastery for breakfast and coffee, of course.
Roastery has pretty much gone all cashless.
Not sure if you could see it.  But she's making my donut.  I do appreciate that my food are made to order.
So glad that they have Apple Cider Donuts year round.  That's one of my favorite.  I've tried other flavors, such as Mocha, Powdered Sugar, and Classic.  The Classic is not bad.  One order comes in 3, 6, or 12.  These things are mini donuts.  The lady had a boo boo one, she just threw it in there, which is much appreciated.

Bernie's Burger Bus

Lots to choose from and all delicious.
Here's the Kindergarteners...
Which is, 2 sliders with blue cheese, tipsy onion, and bacon on top of the little patty between artisan buns.
This!  This is a heart attack for me.  No, actually, this is Honor Roll Fries.  It has BBQ Brisket, cheddar, onion, scallion.  Every bite is so good.  Cannot stop eating.

The Blind Goat

Finally made it to Blind Goat inside Bravery Food Hall.
It is located towards the back of the food hall.
Haven't seen one of these for a long time, even though I haven't been drinking soda, just have to grab one.
Peanut Tofu dish: vermicelli at the bottom, fried tofu, toasted coconut, pickled vegetable, and egg roll on top.  It's a good vegetarian alternative.
This is the G.O.A.T. Curry.  Rice at the bottom, that actually has goat, potato, lemongrass, mustard green and egg roll.  This is a good gluten free alternative.
After you're done, check out the 'Secret Garden' out back of the building.  You can also grab a cup of coffee at the greenhouse and take a few pics for the gram.  

Occasionally, you can run into Christine Ha, the winner of Masterchef and also owner for The Blind Goat.  She's there pretty regularly.  Don't be afraid to talk to her, she's pretty friendly.
