The Woodlands TX Restaurants – Lama Mediterranean Cuisine

lama mediterranean cuisine

The Woodlands TX. If you are looking for healthy mediterranean cuisine in a casual atmosphere, head on over to Lama Mediterranean cuisine on Research Forest. This order-at-the-counter casual restaurant supplies the healthy goods with servings so large that to go containers are always at the counter. It is great for a large group where everyone likes something a little different. No one will leave disappointed. My favorite is the lamb shank. I love a good lamb shank and good ones are difficult to find in the US. Lama’s is cooked and spiced perfectly with no gamey taste at all. It is fall off the bone tender and melts in your mouth. It is served with carrots, potatoes, rice, salad, and pita bread. My husband is a fan of the Lama Meat Platter and the name says it all – chicken, beef and gyros piled high and served with rice, salad, and bread. Vegetarians are always happy here with the many vegetarian dishes. The vegetarian combination plate has falafel, grape leaves, hummus, baba ganouge, tabouli salad and a greek salad. The mediterranean pizza with halloumi cheese is a great starter to share. For dessert, the baklava is fresh and tasty and exceeds my expectations every time.

Master Bathroom Remodels Are Going High-Tech

By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR® Magazine

Home owners are increasingly investing to create luxurious, modernized master baths, according to the 2016 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Survey of more than 2,100 home owners who are planning or recently completed a bathroom renovation project.

Of those surveyed, 20 percent say they are updating the toilet; 12 percent are updating a tub; and 9 percent are updating a shower with high-tech features.

High-tech toilet features home owners say they’re incorporating include self-cleaning functions, motion-activated seats, or built-in nightlights. Popular high-tech bathtub features are built-in lighting, heated backrests, and scented mist dispensers. The survey also showed the most popular high-tech shower updates are mood lighting, digital controls, and built-in sound.

Other popular luxury features that home owners say they’re spending on are rainfall showerheads (among 54 percent of those updating showers); bathtubs with room for two (20 percent of those upgrading tubs); adding chandeliers (17 percent of upgraded light fixtures); and bidet-equipped commodes (6percent of upgraded toilets).

Of the remodeling home owners surveyed, two in five say they spent between $10,000 to $25,000 on master bathroom renovations. Another one-third surveyed said they spent more than $25,000.
