ARE YOU DATE-LESS THIS V-DAY? You need not stay home. Pull up a barstool and treat yourself to a night on the town at one of these solo- diner-friendly Houston area establishments.
Ramen is one of the world’s perfect solo-dining foods, offering therapy in the form of a soothing, steaming, aromatic bowl of goodness. Grab a seat facing the open kitchen and get lost in the broth, whether you go for the spicy unami miso, a moderately rich pork broth filled with pork soboro, noodles, and chile oil—add more if you dare—or the flying vegan harvest, made with soy meat in a salty miso broth.
