With 'Vitamin House' in the title, one might think that I am coming here to purchase vitamins or supplements. Not at all. Dan's has been a landmark for delicious smoothies since I was in grade school. And, I'm pretty sure the decor has not changed since either. Happy hour at that time happened around 3:30 p.m. and included a discount on my favorite smoothie: chocolate banana. Now, when I say smoothie I don't think I mean smoothie in the sense of Smoothie King or anything remotely healthy. I'm pretty sure when I order the chocolate banana that it is also filled in with some vanilla ice cream. I'm ok with that - I'm not coming here to count calories. They do have other flavors that could lean towards the healthier spectrum of what we call a smoothie these days. Pro tip: say 'no' to a top for your smoothie so you can get as much smoothie as possible. Make sure to slurp it up fast so it doesn't runneth over.

I am thankful for this place. For an area that seems starving for good restaurants (am I wrong? Would happily be proven incorrect!), this is one that I hope stays for a while. Situated in a strip center, don't let the surrounding area keep you from going on this food adventure - you will thank yourself. I honestly never want to eat a street taco or taco, in general, from anywhere else. Go for the cilantro and onions like a champ and smother it in the sauces that sit atop the tables. If there was any place I would definitely take people for a Houston experience, this would be on that list. And, it is a bit of a dive but clean - so go in, order at the counter, and enjoy! Tips: $5 min. on credit cards - that will get you 3 tacos.

If eating healthy is this good, anyone can do it. This family owned, San Antonio-based Kosher-Vegetarian (also has Macrobiotic, Gluten Free and Vegan) restaurant sits right on the outskirts of Bellaire. And, yes, I said Kosher. It is certified Kosher Dairy and closed on Saturday - so make note. You'll walk in and be seated in a bright, airy room that also makes note of some of history's more famous vegetarians. For newbies, start off with the Mediterranean bowl or Protein Salad. I've also enjoyed the Macrobiotic Bowl and one of their delicious cupcakes. Join their online mailing list and sometimes be treated to a special offer. Take away available, too!

In a land devoid of Vietnamese restaurants (that I know of!) and within a decent radius to Bellaire area residents and employees, this is a gem! I've visited here 5-10 times...either for tofu spring rolls, vermicelli, and bahn mi. I live in an area where I have 3 delicious Vietnamese restaurants within a stone's throw from my door so I was skeptical at first. Prices are decent and I hear their Pho is really good - I haven't tried that yet. I was impressed with their bahn mi. One would think this is an easy sandwich but just like Tex-Mex, it too, can be messed up. This was delicious and on par with Les Givral's in Midtown. The marinated tofu (always ask for extra) really made the bahn mi. And, so did the price. I'm so pleased I don't have to run home for Vietnamese food during the day and this is a nice place to get a good deal for lunch.

What a great lunch deal - two bao, salad (or fries), and a drink for $9.25 as of 9/11/2014. I chose the bulgogi and soft shelled crab and felt quite full afterwards. The ginger miso dressing atop fresh spinach leaves was a nice way to start. The interior is nothing fancy nor too big but it's perfect for lunch or a casual dinner. Community tables lend themselves to groups larger than 4. Good music plays and it's a refreshing, diverse group of diners that are wanting bao and more. So glad to see this place inside the loop - looking forward to trying their ramen on Monday or Tuesday soon!

What a nice surprise in this booming city of what seems to be filled with so much hype about places, you want to let it die down for several months before you go. If you do. Situated in the Upper Kirby/Richmond area, this counter-service, clean and modernly decorated pizzeria is a wonderful Houston addition and perfect for any sort of dining excursion. A Wednesday night had what looked like a first date, a mom and son, a four top of college students playing cards and a few other couples scattered throughout. The pizzas are covered in toppings so you feel absolutely certain that you're getting above value product. We went for the spicy andouille and were able to feed two with leftovers. $12 for a pizza...you can barely get a frozen pizza for that price. Make sure to stop in!

With well-appointed, contemporary rooms, this updated hotel is sometimes referred to as the Hinckley Hilton. It finished a $150 million renovation in 2010 and is also home to the annual White House Correspondents Dinner. And, smack dab in Dupont Circle making it easy hop from Reagan Airport (coincidence?) on the Metro with a quick hike up Connecticut Avenue. Restaurants, Washington Sports Club, a CVS and other various and sundry places line your walk - so you're not far from anything at all. The exterior looks like it is from 1965 but don't let that dissuade you. Rooms are small and try to get on the 10th floor so you can enjoy the fruits of the Lounge and escape small rooms. But, you're not in D.C. to stay in your hotel room, so you'll be just fine.
