We at Memorial Plastic Surgery value our patient’s comfort first and foremost – especially those coming from nearby cities and states. We want your experience with us to be as relaxing as possible – from your consultation and surgery to your recovery and travel back home. We recommend the following hotels, diners, and attractions for you and your family to get the best experience in Houston.
What to Do
- Houston Zoo
The Houston Zoo is an affordable treat for an extravaganza of flowers, plants, and animals for your family. Home to hundreds of wildlife species, the zoo offers guests a unique opportunity to interact with some animals (Natural Encounter) such as monkeys, otters, meerkats, sloths, giraffes, turtles, seals, among others.
- Memorial Park Golf Course and Driving Range
A 12-minute drive from our Houston office, Memorial Park Golf Course and Driving Range is a must-try for visiting families – especially for dads who enjoy a bit of golf to relax. The 9-hole course is visited by over 60,000 patrons a year, earning the title “the greatest golf course ever” from famous golf architect John Bredemus.
- The Galleria
Dubbed as Houston’s premier shopping place, The Galleria is home to more than 400 varieties of stores and restaurants. With its 2.4 million square feet space, a whole day won’t probably be enough to sweep every corner of the mall to window shop. Located in the heart of Uptown Houston, this “city within a city” is a must-try for you and your family.
- Johnson Space Center
Visiting Houston automatically means exploring NASA’s Johnson Space Center – a place for the institution’s astronaut training, space research, flight control, and more. A must-see is the Rocket Park within the facility where two impressive rockets pointing skyward can be viewed to your heart’s content.
- Dolce Vita Spa
Tired after your trip to Houston? Relax with soothing massages and body therapies at Dolce Vita Day Spa Houston to energize. Using only top-of-the-line equipment, the spa house offers facial, body, and massage therapies for both men and women to enjoy. A must-try is their Swedish Massage which targets body tension for a total relaxation after effect.
Where to Eat
- Goode Co. Texas Bar-B-Q
Having been in the restaurant scene for over 35 years, Goode Co takes pride in serving the tastiest dishes embodying the Texas culture. Family-owned and operated, the taste of Texas is deeply embedded in their steaks and barbecues. Their Great BBQ Brisket Sandwich is easily a crowd favorite, but their must-try dish is their succulent BBQ Ribs and pecan pie.
- Oxheart Houston
Oxheart Houston is perfect for adventurous veggie-lovers who are up for creative ways of cooking vegetable-centric dishes. Situated in an intimate location, the industrial atmosphere of the restaurant completes a dining experience like no other. You and your family should try the jewel dumplings served in light citrus and tea broth, one of their many bestsellers.
- Kenny and Ziggy’s New York Deli
Known as an old-school New York deli, Kenny and Ziggy’s captured the hearts of Houstonians with its huge portions of everything – from pastrami sandwiches to fluffy pancakes. Fresh and flavorful, their menu is a long list of pastrami, corned beef, and matzo balls. A must-try is their turkey pastrami and their Fiddler on the Roof of Your Mouth, a triple-decker corned beef and pastrami with Russian dressing and coleslaw.
- B&B Butchers & Restaurant
While relatively new, B&B Butchers quickly grew to the taste of many Houstonians because of the unique twists the steakhouse brings to the classic steak menu. They only serve superior meats, all cut fresh daily at The Butcher Shop. You should not miss their classic Châteaubriand for two and their 28-ounce Double Sirloin.
- Peli Peli
One of the multi-awarded restaurants in Houston, Peli Peli is a classic choice of many Houstonians when it comes to dining. Aside from the cozy atmosphere and the good service, customers keep coming back to the resto for their special Peli Peli Bacon Wrapped Chicken, a guava basted chicken wrapped in layers of bacon with sweet chili sauce.
