Galleria-Uptown just added a new eatery called H.S. Green. This new restaurant offers quality-sourced food, made fresh in house. It’s located in the Plaza on Richmond Avenue, in the Galleria area. Their dine-in menu, includes vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, and you have the opportunity to dine-in or take out, during breakfast, lunch and dinner. The environment is laid back chic, with an open kitchen so you can see your food being made in front of you.
In a booming city like Houston, with food temptations left and right, it can get tough to remain loyal to that new “diet.” But lucky for us, more and more conscious restaurants are opening lately. I had a chance to visit H.S. Green for a tasting, with my sister, and we were treated to wonderful food that I’m excited to share with you. We started the evening tasting some of their fresh pressed juices;
- 5 Berry: Perfect for mornings
- Watermelon lime mint: Very juicy
- Pineapple coconut mint: Refreshing and thirst quenching, favorite.
We accompanied the drinks with their Guacamame with corn chips, which is a delicious combination of their house made guacamole and edamame. You’ll have a tough time putting it down, which is perfectly okay.
We followed up with the Buffalo Chicken wrap, with jalapeño ranch dressing and buffalo sauce. The vinaigrette in this wrap cuts the taste of the buffalo sauce without changing flavor. And their house made tortillas are perfectly thing to where you don’t feel overwhelmingly full afterwards. Oh sorry, can you tell I LOOOOOVE this wrap?
A loyal diner recommended we try their Crispy Duck Fontina pizza, and what better recommendation than one from someone who dines there very often? The Pizza is made with home braised duck, with caramelized onions and a nice white creamy garlic sauce. The crust is made in-house, and again the thin crust makes it lighter and easier to eat and digest.
In addition to cold pressed juices, you’ll also have the chance to choose from a diverse selection of smoothies, wine, beer and gourmet coffee.
