Get ready for some good eating on Sunday, Feb. 17, because it’s National Cabbage Day.
Don’t wrinkle your nose.
Cabbage is one of the key ingredients in some of my favorite Houston dishes. Here are five cabbage dishes that are celebration-worthy.
The Reubang at Beaver's Icehouse. This is one serious sandwich. A stack of house-cured pastrami, Swiss cheese, coleslaw and Russian dressing on a Kraftsmen marble-rye pretzel roll definitely makes it a manly meal.

Golabki (cabbage rolls) at Polonia. The welcome at this cozy restaurant is as warm as the tomato gravy served with these cabbage rolls. It’s Polish comfort fare.

Berryhill's fish taco.: Syd Kearney : 29-95
Red cabbage gives color and crunch to one of my favorite finger foods: the original battered and fried fish tacos at Berryhill Baja Grill. And here’s a deal, every Friday (through March 29) fish tacos are $1.99 each at participating restaurants.

The sweet-and-sour red cabbage at Rudi Lechner's. This iconic westside restaurant serves a heaping helping of its red cabbage with nearly every dish that leaves the kitchen. We always order some to take home after we clean our plates.

The Cabbage Slaw at Local Foods. This unique Asian-influenced slaw — made with edamame, bean sprouts and a lemon-grass vinaigrette — deserves a plate of its own, not just a cup alongside a sandwich. It has a slightly sweet bite and great crunch.
