ARCO SEAFOOD RESTAURANT
9896 Bellaire Blvd. • Houston 77036 • 713.774.2888 • arcoseafood.com
Let’s start off January with a “Chinese New Year”! Although ‘seafood’ is in its name, Arco has a wide variety of dishes on its menu…VERY wide, like so many Chinese restaurants, and we can only give you a sampling here due to space restrictions. This is a matter-of-fact restaurant, remarkable by its food and not its décor. It was recommended to me by a Chinese employee here in the Vacations To Go Building, and I have been several times.
