"Pinemont: representing the North Side"

For several years I was a recording engineer for Rap-A-Lot records and their recording studio is located on Pinemont. I got to know the area very well.
It isn't exactly the nicest area in Houston, but it isn't as bad as it initially seems either. Once you get past the roads that need obvious work and the shanty houses located right off Pinemont, you'll find that the area actually has some charm.
Even though I spent most of my time in the studio, I did venture to the corner of Pinemont and Antoine from time to time. Here you will find anything you need including local shops, fast food and one of my favorite dive restaurants in Houston, Timmy Chans Chicken and Rice. This is Chinese food with a soul food flare. Not your typical dish of either, but a nice combined new style of cooking. It was always packed regardless of the time I would go.
If you follow Pinemont to 290 you will see the local metro bus park and ride. Very convenient for those getting around town with public transportation.
The Pinemont area doesn't pretend to be anything it is not. But for a middle to lower middle class north side hang out, I don't have a problem with telling people to check it out. And eat some Timmy Chans. That's worth the drive down Pinemont by itself.
