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, […]

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, […]

Fast Furious Japanese Grill

August 8, 2017

July 3, 2017

Neighborhood Services has interesting dynamics and good food. The interior is as if there were two owners: one who wanted the bar to look like Cheers and the other one who wanted an upscale restaurant. Somehow they got both and honestly, it works. The menu even matches the style of the restaurant with New American […]

June 30, 2017

I originally posted about Hopdoddy back in 2014 when they opened a new store in Uptown.  Since then, I have been back on more than one occasions and in different areas and cities. I stand by my initial review (that it’s better than Village Burger Bar) but the newness and hype has worn off. I’m […]

A good pun with even better cupcakes at Mad Batter Baker. Located in Addison Circle, Mad Batter Baker is right off of the roundabout. The punny name is matched with whimsical interior and “Eat Me” menu signs. There are options from breakfast to customized cakes. But if you want to hop in for a chocolate […]

Health-conscious restaurants with “hippy” vibes aren’t new but they are on trend. Dream Cafe has been open for more than 20 years.

An expansion of family-owed Best Thai on Belt Line, Boba Tea & Treats serves up teas, coffees, smoothies, and other delectable treats. If you’ve never had Boba or Bubble Tea, I will try my best at a quick explanation. It is a Taiwanese tea-based drink made with milk. The boba or bubble part of the […]

They have a large covered patio perfect for the sunny weather. You are served seasoned chips and three different salsas; my favorite being the tomatillo salsa. The drink menu is almost […]
