Landry’s Seafood

Image Source: http://www.landrysseafood.com/location-the-woodlands.asp

While Landry’s is a chain, our local one in The Woodlands is exceptionally good. I’m always surprised by how great it is.  The service and food have both improved in the last few years and is now on my regular rotation. One of my pet peeves is when fish is over cooked.  At Landry’s, they get it right every time.  It is always moist and perfectly cooked.  There are many many kinds of fish to choose from. On a recent visit, there were nine different kinds of fish to choose from. And there are many different ways to prepare them, from fried, broiled, blackened, pan-seared, or grilled.  Once you decide what kind of fish and how prepared, you can select from many delicious sauces.  My favorite is the crawfish etoufee. It is rich and decadent and pairs well with a moist broiled fish.  I also love the firecracker shrimp with its spicy sweet bite. The Melissa topping has shrimp, scallops, crab, and mushrooms.  Entrees are served with a generous helping of salad that is fresh and plentiful. There are many other items besides fish to order.  They have cold water and gulf oysters. Their gumbo is excellent.  They have shrimp and grits, po-boys, all manner of shellfish, salads, and pastas.  The crawfish bread appetizer is totally addictive and a must order.  Landry’s also has an excellent bar and Happy Hour.  I love the happy hour drink and food specials.  The firecracker shrimp and the fried zucchini are always my favorite.  The fish tacos are a close second.  For any seafood you desire, Landry’s is a great place to get your fix.

The Woodlands Creekside Park Village

The Woodlands Village of Creekside Park is planned to be home to 7,100 new families. A mix of home styles, price ranges and homebuilders is found in the Village of Creekside Park, similar to the other villages in The Woodlands. Many of the same popular homebuilders who build in other areas of The Woodlands are building new homes in Creekside Park. New homes are currently priced from the $180’s to more than $3 million.

New homebuilding is underway in several neighborhoods located off the main entrance to the village on Gosling Road and in the neighborhood of Timarron off Kuykendahl Road. Sale of new homes and homesites is also underway in the gated community of Carlton Woods Creekside, home of a Tom Fazio Championship Golf Course.

Lakes & Parklands to Discover

Vast areas of parklands, totaling 1,850 acres, along with plentiful lakes and ponds, are the highlight of the new Village of Creekside Park. Here, you and your family can enjoy hiking, swimming, fishing, kayaking and canoeing, mountain biking, birding and other creative ways to commune with nature. It’s a true adventureland!

Many of the neighborhoods in Creekside Park are centered around parks or water features. A 72-acre lake and linear park, called Lake Paloma (Spanish for “dove”), extends east to west in the center of the village, acting as a scenic connector between neighborhoods. A 12-foot wide walking and biking trail will run along the banks of Lake Paloma. Major parklands include the 1,700-acre George Mitchell Nature Preserve, named in honor of The Woodlands’ founder, George Mitchell, and 20-acre Rob Fleming Park, named in honor of Rob Fleming, Texas Parks and Wildlife naturalist and artist.

A Vision Named for a Visionary

Trailheads will lead from several of the neighborhood parks into the 1,700-acre George Mitchell Nature Preserve at the northern border of the village. Two trailheads leading into The Preserve – one in the Village of Creekside Park and one in the Village of Indian Springs – are now open. Miles of soft surface trails are also open for hiking and birding. The George Mitchell Nature Preserve includes seven miles of frontage along Spring Creek, and is part of the Spring Creek Greenway Project, a joint effort of Harris and Montgomery Counties to amass 33 miles of Spring Creek frontage for a bi-county nature trail system extending from US 59 to Spring.

Rob Fleming Park features a Craftsman-style Pavilion; a playground; tree-lined promenades and groves of specimen trees; a naturally landscaped one-acre lake with lakeside conservation trail; a bluebonnet meadow; a field for community festivals; a butterfly garden; and a picnic area. A wildlife sculpture trail that will be a tribute to the artistry of Rob Fleming will be completed soon.

The Chipper

Image Source: Facebook

Several months ago, the lady who works at the British Depot store near the Tamina Farmers Market just west of the Woodlands, told me about a new fish and chips shop opening in the area. I have been anticipating this opening ever since. And boy, The Chipper lives up to all my waiting and wondering and anticipating. I had high expectations. This is authentic, outstanding fish and chips. They sell haddock and cod and the haddock is crazy good. The chips (or fries to us Yanks) are the best I’ve ever had. They are historic, and I can’t stop eating them. My favorite thing they sell is the mushy peas. I love mushy peas. If you’ve never had them, you have to try them. They have a nutty flavor that goes perfectly with the fish and chips. They also sell a dill flavored tartar sauce and a curry sauce. Their traditional English pies (different meat pies) are excellent too. If you are adventurous, they sell haggis. This is a small shop with about four tables, typical of fish and chip shops in England. Because of the small size, I usually get mine to go. Currently, they are open Wednesday through Saturday noon to 8pm. Go enjoy our little spot of England in Texas.
