“Don’t mess with Texas,” the saying goes. At least as far as Houston is concerned, that slogan aptly applies to the local food scene, too. Houston’s Latin restaurant selection can go head to head with other major cities both in breadth and in quality. Whether you’ve got a hankering for Peruvian or a craving for Brazilian, Houston’s got you covered. Here’s where to go:

Brasil Cafe

Stepping into Brasil Cafe feels immediately like taking a break from the daily grind. Inside the restaurant’s canopy of trees, you can choose from a number of brunch options — both sweet and savory — thanks to ingredients like coconut or chorizo. Not out and about in the morning? No problem. Brasil Cafe is open for lunch and dinner, too, with plenty of casual fare. You might even catch a live music performance.

To get your fix of fresh, coastal Mexican favorites, try Caracol, where fresh ingredients and a comprehensive wine list are sure to impress. Order gulf oysters on the half shell with lime and salsa bruja, or the fish tacos topped with roasted pineapple and cilantro.

Latin Bites

If you’re looking for some of the best ceviche in town, look no further. Latin Bites serves Peruvian favorites in a laidback cafe environment. A drink from the pisco bar will complement whatever dish you order, so be sure to let the bartenders work their magic.
