On Sunday evenings, you can venture to Oak Forest for a feast that isn’t like many others. Every Sunday, ISKON of Houston opens their doors at 5:30 p.m. for an all vegetarian meal that is open to the public.
In more recent news, the temple has decided to open a new, vegetarian restaurant. An opening date or in-depth details have not be given at this time, but the temple has confirmed the restaurant to be a separate addition to the temple.
ISKON of Houston is located at 1320 W 34th St. in Oak Forest.

The Boil House now delivers
If you’ve driven down 11th Street in the Heights on the weekend, you’ve probably noticed the crowd that stands for The Boil House. Widely known for their weekend crawfish boil and king cakes, the Boil House has now signed up with Favor Delivery, an application that will deliver just about anything in certain area codes.
So if you’re dreading the crowd or long lines, download Favor to your phone and see if the mud bugs can be delivered to your door.
Editor’s note: An error was made in this week’s print addition of Nibbles. The new restaurant for ISKON Houston was written as a confirmed addition in their current construction. However, the restaurant will be a separate entity. More updates coming soon.
