New York City: September 6

on September 9, 2010

Hillstone @ 153 E 53rd St (between Lexington Ave & 3rd Ave)

Since the national chain, Houston’s was taken over by the Hillstone Restaurant Group, prices have gone up a little bit along with new food.

Houstons - Dip Duo

Houstons - Dip Duo

Fresh guacamole and chunky queso dips served with warm crispy tortillas chips. $12!!! For the amount it cost, there should have been more chips and dips. The guacamole was a little bland, lacked salt and pepper. There wasn’t even a kick to it. Maybe they forgot the jalepeno. The queso dip, on the other hand was amazing. Salty from the queso cheese itself. Made with mayo and there was a spicy kick to it. Loved every bit of it. The chips was ok but I expected them to be seasoned.

Houstons - California Burger

Fresh ground chuck steak burgers are house ground every morning. Served with with Jack cheese, avocado, arugula and red onion on a homemade bun. Sandwiches also came with a side of crispy extra thin shoestring fries. The avocado slices was a great addition to the burger. It added a layer of creamy texture to the burger. The homemade bun was soft and not soggy, even with their special sauce.

Houstons - Famous French Dip

Shaved prime rib on a griddled French roll served with au jus and horseradish sauce on side. This sandwich was amazingly heaven in my mouth!! I can eat this sandwich everyday if I can. The French roll was buttery, flaky, and tasted almost like a croissant. The shaved prime rib was slowly roasted to the perfection. I didn’t have a preference to using the horseradish sauce. However, the au jus sauce was soooo good! Savory beef drippings used as a dipping sauce added the best touch to this dish. A definite re-order.
