Arturo Boada Cuisine
Houston, TX 77057
Houston Press' Description
In a sleepy side street in the Memorial Villages, Arturo Boada Cuisine is alive with the energy of a European bistro. Chef and owner Arturo Boada is a constant presence there, turning out his signature dishes like a creamy, tangy camarones henesy y hamaca - shrimp over plantains in a tangy sauce - and Italian pizzas with Spanish ingredients on top, like a carnitas pizza topped with asadero cheese and cilantro. The wine list is pricey but worth it; you'll want to split a bottle just to stay all night in the cozy space.

SNAPPER TAQUITOS! Just stop it right now. Three semi mini taquitos gently covered in a Serrano garlic pepper sauce. Perfectly petite in the best of the very best way. Enough already!
Try the snapper and Meomie Pinot Noir. ... Together or separate they're amazing!!
Get the white truffles when he has them
Their ceviche is some of the best you'll ever have. Wait staff so attentive and not intrusive. I do not go here often enough. The pizza carnita is phenomenal as well. Creme brûlée gratis this time
