Ostioneria La Michoacana
7309 Bissonnet St, Houston, Texas 77074
MY REVIEW: This is a little place just 2 blocks from Sharpstown Hi. I was first attracted to it by the sign in the window proclaiming barbacoa de borrego with a picture of a goat. Iíve been eating goat a lot since I discovered it has fewer calories and cholesterol than beef and is quite common in Texas thanks to our Hispanic population (itís also common on Indian and Pakistani menus). They have a buffet for lunch which is only $5.99 and itís a very good deal.
Everything Iíve had from the buffet has been very good, especially the Caldo de Borrego, which was rich and savory and spicy, like a very good tortilla soup made with goat. The buffet usually includes one of the caldos, a pasta dish, such as ziti con mariscos (seafood) or spaghettini with shrimp, enchiladas made with a mild white Mexican cheese and dark ranchero sauce, arroz Mexicana con verduras, and a couple of other common selections such as pollo guisado or carne guisada. They do not put a huge amount of food out on the buffet at any time and it gets refreshed as needed and stays fresh. A la carte Iíve had the Jalapenos Rellenos, 3 large jalapenos, stuffed with a crab and shrimp paste, battered and fried, served with a very good home-made tartar sauce. This was just an appetizer but was enough for a meal one day for me.
I go to a buffet for the opposite reason many people do, not to pig out but to get a variety of tastes on the plate without a huge amount of food Ė restaurant portions are just way too huge these days and I usually wind up throwing out leftovers. This is a great place for a quick, inexpensive and very reasonable lunch.
