    There's something gloriously, uproariously queer about Houston's dining scene. It gives us our edge, it's hard to define, and it's undeniably present. It's transgressive, ebullient, explosive, unpredictable, and captivating-but because we're surrounded by it and it's part of our DNA, the rest of the world celebrates the gastronomic gift of "Mutt City" cuisine more than we do.
