Food and drink roundup (02-15-06 edition)

It's time for another food and drink roundup, kids. There are quite a few links to offer up today. Let's get started, shall we?

Alison Cook and Robb Walsh both seemed to have had a thing for raw food for a time. Cook took readers on a trip to Galveston and tried out the oysters at Gilhooley's.

Robb Walsh tried the oysters in town at both Willie G's and Magnolia Bar & Grill, which seemed to win his contest of gluttony. He also did some raw dining down NASA way at Masa Sushi.

Dai Huynh made chocolate even more unappetizing to this bH contributor in her pre-Valentine's day examination of chocolate as all-purpose ingredient. As much as I dislike the stuff, it's still fascinating reading.

Peggy Grodinsky covers local Kosher pretty well in her offering this week. No word though whether my search for the best bowl of chicken soup has ended.

Ken Hoffman calls Denny's Zesty Creole Scrambled Sensation Denny's newest sensation. I've never been much of a Denny's fan, but maybe it really has changed for the better. (Speaking of breakfast, 59 Diner in Montrose has just recently begun serving breakfast all day every day. And...they now have wi-fi too. Take that, Denny's.)

There's also a new Greek offering in town in the Galleria area that goes by the name of Stelios Deli. It shares space, strangely enough, with a gas station, but don't let that dissuade you. A first visit to the place didn't disappoint.

And finally, Lance Scott Walker quaffs some at downtown hot spot Slainte.

World Class, all of it. Enjoy!!
