Nosh: Le Colonial

Located in the new and trendy shopping hot spot, River Oaks District, Le Colonial bridges classic French cuisine with tasty ethnic Vietnamese cuisine. Originally from New York City, this highly buzzed restaurant grace’s the diverse Houston food scene.

I believe all Asian food are best shared, so we gathered some friends and ordered some dishes recommended by our waitress. A few slips of cocktail later – our food arrived.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Le Colonial, it was perfect for the hot muggy Houston day. If we absolutely had to choose, our favorite was the eggplant dish (Ca Tim Nuong) and the delicious salad!

Whether you are a shopper resting your feet or just looking for a restaurant with a nice ambiance to hang our with friends. Le Colonial is the perfect spot! We hear their happy hour is equally amazing. Either way, we will definitely be back.

Until the next time,
