where is the best pakistani restaurant in houston?
I suggest trying out Himalaya Restaurant & Catering which offers diners authentic Pakistani and Indian cuisine for lunch, dinner and special events. You should also try Curry Bistro. On the menu, fans will find classic Indian and Pakistani dishes including tandoori specialties, seafood offerings and vegetarian plates.
For more ideas on restaurants in Houston, you can search by category or area of town.
shopping in huntsville ?
I'm not too familiar with shopping in Huntsville. I'd suggest you check in with the Huntsville Convention and Visitors Bureau on where they recommend.
If you're ever interested in Houston shopping, be sure to check back!
Hi Veronica, We are planning a BIG Healthfair,here at our site, in the historical Third Ward Area. Are there any events, similar to this already scheduled in the houston Area.., we are considering November 8th or 15th.
I'm afraid health events are not my area of expertise. Organizations really focus more on submitting festivals and other events geared toward leisure travel to us. I haven't seen anything of this nature but you may want to check with community health organizations like Legacy Community Health to ensure there isn't anything that directly competes.

Hi Veronica I am planning a wedding anniversary trip. I am thinking of Houston and would like spending time in China town, Bellaire Blvd area, and the Gallery. Because of an anniversary, I am looking for a nice hotel, Hilton or equivelent, also I am not sure which airpot would be closer. I would like asking for your help. Thank so much.
If you're flying domestically, I recommend coming through Hobby Airport which is about 11 miles south of Downtown Houston.
As far as the area's of town you mentioned, Chinatown is a very cool area of Houston to explore. It's different than most Chinatowns because it was built out instead of up--so there is a lot of ground to cover! And, Houston's Chinatown showcases much more than Chinese culture. Chinese shops, restaurants, and cultural centers share blocks with Indian, Pakistani, Korean, Vietnamese and Middle Eastern markets.
The food is extremely authentic. Some of my favorite restaurants: Banana Leaf (Malaysian); Crawfish and Noodles (Vietnamese); HK Dim Sum (Chinese); San Dong Noodle House (Thai). There are so many others, and I think you should try as many as you can!
You definitely need to explore the Hong Kong City Mall. The food market inside the mall is enormous. Jade Buddha Temple is also very cool.
Also, here is information about the Galleria. I recommend checking out some of the attractions found on CityPASS as well.
There are plenty of area hotels that would be great for a wedding anniversary. Check out this list hotel in the museum district. With easy access to the MetroRail and all of the museums, Hotel ZaZa is a great option. Here are some downtown options as well. If you choose downtown, here is some information about the Historic District and ideas for things to do.
I hope that helps and that you both have a great visit!

Is the Holocaust Museum free on September 20 & 21, 2014, My husband seems to think so.
The Holocaust Museum is free that weekend to EMS workers and fire fighters. Otherwise, you would pay the general admission pricing.
Hi there- I am arriving in Houston via Emerald Princess early on 11th Nov, have booked to see NASA on 12th and leave afternoon of 13th Nov from G B Intercontinental. Where would be a good location to stay within cooee of these places and what is the best way of getting from one location to another? Thanks, Lynne
The places that you are visiting are very spread out. Therefore, I recommend you stay in a central location to all of them in Downtown. I recommend Hotel Icon, Sam Houston Hotel or the Magnolia Hotel.
Regarding transportation between each location, I suggest calling The Wave, Taxi, Uber or Lyft to get you down to Space Center Houston. To get from the cruise terminal and hotel, then hotel to the airport, look into Super Shuttle or The Wave.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
I have an antique bed and chest I want to place on consignment in the Heights. What are the time of business for the store on 19th and when can I bring things into the store?
The shops on 19th that I'm aware of do not allow for consignment from the public. Those antique shops are dealer only. However, one place you might consider is the Guild Shop on Dunlavy in Montrose. The Guild Shop does take consignment pieces. Furniture consignment can be brought in by appointment only. Click here to see the process and how it works.
Hope this helps!
