Best Of Houston® 2021: Best Bar - Heights

Since pouring its first drink over four years ago, Better Luck Tomorrow has absolutely blossomed into the perfect Heights neighborhood hangout spot that drink master Bobby Heugel and chef Justin Yu envisioned. It’s hard to decide whether the food or cocktails are Better Luck Tomorrow’s biggest draw, a testament to how spectacular both ends of the establishment’s menu are. Riffs on classics like the Cold-Fashioned (the bar’s take on the famed bourbon cocktail that adds rum and brandy to the mix to great effect) sit alongside a periodically shifting selection of original drinks full of clever ingredients like dill, sumac, aloe and kiwi to form a libations list with something to excite even the most jaded of palates.

Best Of Houston® 2021: Best Gluten-Free Pizza

While not from Houston originally, MOD (Made On Demand) Pizza is an excellent choice for gluten-free diners.

Best Of Houston® 2021: Best Soup Dumplings

A regional specialty from Shanghai, soup dumplings, or xiaolongbao, are a difficult delicacy to master. First, the dumping skin needs to be prepared fresh and rolled by hand until paper thin. Then, the dumpling itself must be made quickly — the filling placed on the just-rolled skin and then closed by a series of pleats that results in a perfectly shaped round dumpling. Prepared and steamed to order, the soup dumplings must be served at the table steaming hot with all the juice trapped inside.

Best Of Houston® 2021: Best Sandwich

There is something about a fried chicken sandwich. Popeye's figured that out with its fried sensation that caused traffic jams at drive-thru windows and countless imitations. But if you aren't ready for something that heavy, Local Foods has an option that is not just as good, it's better. The Crunchy Chicken is an absolutely incredible sandwich that substitutes the crunch of friend skin for a delicious nut crumble and a smattering of their in-house-made potato chips.
