JJ Watt just can’t let go.
NEW TEAM, SAME NUMBER: Marshall Goldberg’s family gives JJ Watt permission to wear the number 99 in Arizona
On Sunday, Watt accidentally tweeted a list of local Houston restaurants that he seems to love and miss since moving to Arizona. You may know some of the names.
B&B butcher shop
Turkey thigh hat
Kenny & Ziggys

Fans responded with other local spots.
I will add the following:
Chachos (The one on Westheimer)
Taste of Texas
So many good ones, but these are the main ones that haven’t been listed yet.

Of course, it was about arguing over barbecue joints, as is common in the Houston food debate.
Killen’s is overrated, Central Texas BBQ is way better.

The grill in Central TX is good, but who has time to spend all day grilling when you’re at H.

Killens ?, apparently you haven’t tried the “Truth Barbecue” yet. It’s over on High Boulevard and Washington.

Barbecue arguments aside, I’d like to praise JJ for its good taste. Kata Robata, his first listed restaurant, is hands down the best sushi I’ve ever had and my favorite place in Houston.
The man clearly likes his fat toro, a wide selection of sake and fresh fish from Japan every day. It’s really next-level stuff.
I’m going to propose to you now, JJ, the humble establishment of Shun. The sushi spot in Montrose is a bit like Kata Robata, but with less sticker shock and more relaxed vibes. I highly recommend it as a change from your typical Japanese suburban joint in town.
In any case, I have a lot to do with Watts coming home and having a list of where to eat everything before he leaves. Such precious things need planning, and getting it down on paper (or Twitter) is a great way to focus on the real purpose of any “home” trip, which is to eat your face off between fulfilling family and work commitments .
Stay hungry, JJ
