Walk in and get in line (unless you are me and my friends who are the first ones there) and get ready to order. My traditional order– a chicken salad sandwich on french bread and french onion soup. The chicken salad has a hint of what I have always guess to be vinegar and is so finely purreed, you don’t have to worry about the strange chunks that you normally find in chicken salad. The french onion soup with the perfect amount of cheese, onions and the little crouton in the middle is the perfect starter to eliminate the anticipation of your sandwich arrival.
Feeling a little adventurous? Try a half and half (made this one up myself). What is a half and half you wonder? Let me tell you, its a half California- a smoked turkey breast sandwich with tomato, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, melted Swiss cheese and “special sauce” (thousand island) on the side and half a chicken salad sandwich. You better be feeling hungry for this one because its a big order, but definitely do-able. If you haven’t been to French House and live in Houston, you have not lived my friend. It is home to many fond food memories for me that I will never forget and always cherish.
Chicken Salad – This place is infamous for its chicken salad. The sandwich is on a crusty french baguette that is a lovely, crunchy shattery vessel. The chicken salad is mushed into a spread-like consistency. Instead have a scooped ball of it surrounded by lettuce and vegetables. The cold cucumber soup is the stuff of my dreams. Green, cool, yogurty and garlicky.

The Ruben was open faced!!!! I don't know whats that all a bout?

Galleria-area breakfast and lunch spot for French fast food and boulangerie items. – In Short
This longtime favorite promises fast food made fresh. Order at the counter at this charming, casual café from a breakfast menu that includes omelets, French toast and pastries. Expect a busier scene at lunch when diners opt for fresh-made French onion or lentil soup, quiches, croissant and French bread sandwiches like chicken salad, brie and corned beef. Classic Niçoise salad is large enough for a light entrée and leaves room for a bread pudding or fruit tart for dessert.
