A Veggie’s Hundred

This post is in continuation to this post, where I marked off which items on a Foodie’s 100 Things to Eat Before One Dies list, but is focused on those living in the Houston area. As for part two, I’m going to concentrate on a Vegetarian Foodie’s Top Hundred Foods to Eat. Why? Because it applies to me more.

food name = I’ve eaten before.
food name = I haven’t eaten before.
