Almost everyone knows how much I love chocolate. So, naturally my favorite thing to eat here in Texas Forest Country has something to do with chocolate.
You'll find my favorite chocolate thing to eat at Mar Teres, a quaint tea room and restaurant, nestled among the pine trees with just the right blend of great atmosphere, food and hospitality.
Guys, don't let the name scare you off. The food is great, served in large portions. Plus, you may dine in or carry out.
My favorite thing on the menu is hands down, the Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake from Mar Teres Tea Room and Gifts on Highway 94 west of Lufkin.
