Chris Shepherd, Underbelly

Houston, Texas

“Underbelly was built to share the story of Houston food with our guests. It is our hope that those who visit Underbelly will feel inspired to further engage our community and better understand what a special place Houston is.”

Chris Shepherd’s New American Creole cuisine adopts the idea of blending diverse cultures with local ingredients and applies it to another port city– Houston. Influences from the burgeoning immigrant populations of Vietnam, Korea, India, and Latin America enrich his farm-to-table ethos and whole-animal butchery. With respect and appreciation for those that inspire him, he is a vocal supporter the local food scene, encouraging guests to seek out what the underrated city has to offer.

Cha Ca Style Snapper  (2015)

“Underbelly is a restaurant inspired by the diverse cultures of Houston, a city that has one of the largest Vietnamese populations in the country. Chef Chris Shepherd traveled to Vietnam in early 2015 to better understand these flavors that exist in Houston and to taste Vietnamese food in its place of origin. One dish, Cha Ca, which he tried at Hanoi's famous, hundred-year-old restaurant Cha Ca La Vong, inspired this dish. The ingredients are plentiful in Houston, and it's quickly become one of Underbelly's most popular dishes.”
