I was a judge at Houston's 3rd annual Big Taste fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters. In addition to supporting a great cause, the Big Taste was a fantastic way to sample dishes from many of Houston's notable restaurants in one place.
Note the pork belly bite from Dish Society which stole the show winning in every category.

The more I eat at Estela, the more I want to return. Chef Ignacios Mattos has an uncanny ability to take familiar ingredients and present them in unfamiliar ways. His cooking is simple and straight-forward yet rich with flavor, precise and innovative.
