The Veranda Restaurant Review: The Veranda is a welcome retreat for North Houston denizens craving upscale Texas cuisine crafted with Gulf Coast seafood and Texas beef. Amid the elegant décor of this charming old home nestled in the forest of Kingwood, start your meal with the whiskey-and-molasses-glazed drunken quail before deciding between the Southwest chicken stuffed with cotija cheese and the bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin with a bourbon glaze. There are a few seafood dishes on the menu, the favorite of which is the blackened tilapia topped with a mango salsa. Sunday brunches bring the likes of crab cakes and Texas-style eggs Benedict served on buttermilk biscuits instead of English muffins.
