I”m in Houston for a conference and I’m glad that it’s held outside of the downtown area because it’s given me the opportunity to dine at Goode Company Texas Seafood.  It was nce to get away from the Tex-Mex that I’ve been eating on previous trips.  I loved that the facade was made up of an old Amtrack coach, it reminded me of the Silver Palm Diner in Chicago.  The walls are adorned with black and white photographs of fisherman showing off their prized catches and the taxidermied Yellowfin Tuna was impressive to look at.    My coworkers and I started on super fresh shucked Gulf Coast Oysters and finished off with a slice of decadent Red Hot Red Velvet cake (laced with cayenne pepper and cinnamon).  It had been a while since I’ve had oysters on the half-shell, and since they did come from the Gulf, I was expecting them taste like BP petrol, just kidding, they were delicious.
