Sweet Daze: A Photo Worth a Thousand Calories?

December 12, 2017

Sweet Daze has become an Instagram superstar. You’ve seen their colorful teas topped with a huge slice of rainbow cake or their galaxy donuts. These are no doubt impressive and beautiful to look at but what about taste? From the outside, Sweet Daze just looks like another spot in the shopping mall. Its signage is […]

Kabuki Japanese

November 21, 2017

Kabuki Japanese opened its only Dallas location attached to the Galleria. Upon its opening, Zagat rated it one of the top 19 most anticipated openings. Kabuki restaurants are primarily in southern California with just 4 others in Arizona, Nevada, and Dallas. Though they could have chosen a better location, Kabuki Dallas is quality food and […]

Hidden Star

November 14, 2017

I stand by the opinion that “hole-in-the-wall” places are usually some of the best eateries. Thai Star is no exception. Thai Star is located in a nearly empty shopping strip off Midway. It’s a small restaurant that has 5 booths and possibly 11 tables. Lunch hour rush is no joke. If you want a table, […]

Can the Chains Be Saved?

November 7, 2017

In the recent years, Chili’s, Applebees, TGIFridays (or just Fridays in some areas) have gone through rebranding, menu changes, restructuring, and financial hardships. But can they be saved? And should they be? In large areas such as Dallas, there is no shortage of restaurants, good, bad, and everything in between. As we continue to grow […]

Out-of-Towner: Annies Cafe

October 24, 2017

For #TravelTuesday, I wanted to share Annies Cafe. Luckily, you don’t need a plane ticket to visit. Annies is off of Congress Ave in Austin. Only open for breakfast and lunch, Annies focuses on quality food and wonderful coffee drinks. Breakfast ends and lunch starts at 11. If you come in during that magical hour, […]

Out-of-Towner: Earls Kitchen + Bar

October 10, 2017

This is a rare exception. Earls Kitchen + Bar is in the DFW area. But this review is based on the Earl’s in Canada. I’ve never been to the Earl’s in the Dallas area so I cannot speak to those. Though based on the clientele I’ve seen enter and make reservations for Earls’ Plano location, […]

Out-of-Towner: Document Coffee

September 26, 2017

Honest Dallas is back from Los Angeles with new reviews. I have to thank LA for the hospitality and good times. Staying near Koreatown was great. Lots of wonderful food, culture, leisurely walks. Being the coffee fiend that I am, I had to try one of the coffee shops in the area. Document was said […]

Mercy Wine Bar

September 12, 2017

An upscale wine bar with a large selection, live music, and customers who wear flip-flops, Mercy stays busy. Monday-Thursday: 10:57 AM- 11:57 PM the door of Mercy reads. Google isn’t wrong when you looked it up. The weekend hours are just as odd. Though I have yet to see people there before 6 PM, Mercy […]

Closest Thing to Street Tacos in Addison?

September 5, 2017

It might be that the best “street style tacos” I’ve had in Addison actually come from a family owned chain from Austin. ZuZu Handmade Mexican Food might have started in Austin but has since expanded throughout the Dallas metroplex. And I’m so glad they did. Addison is filled with Mexican chain restaurants: Gloria’s, Taco Diner, […]
