Cris and John

Vietnamese Street Food with a Texas Twist Cris and John is in the sliver of Dallas that meets Addison before Belt Line. It’s tucked away in an unassuming shopping strip. Inside is clean and muralled with inviting art. The space is small so becomes crowded at lunch. Though you can order a traditional Bahn Mi […]

Celebrate the Not-So-Humble Doughnut

Today is National Doughnut Day, so naturally, we’re going to talk doughnuts. There has been a surge of specialty doughnuts throughout Dallas and the other major cities in the US. I’m still a fan of the traditional donut stores that simply say “donuts” and might give you a dozen donut holes just for buying enough […]

Edith’s French Bistro

We’re going to keep this short today. Why? Because Edith’s French Bistro in Mockingbird Station has me torn and more than a little disappointed. I’m torn because the Chicken & Croissant was absolutely delicious but the servers were rude and the red velvet cake was inedible. It was a shame that the cake was terrible […]

Chelsea Corner

I want to take a moment to talk about something dear to my heart: brunch. You don’t have to go to north on McKinney Ave for good brunch but then you’d be missing out on Chelsea Corner. Chelsea Corner has a great patio, lots of space, and excellent food. You can get my favorite brunch […]

Blatt Beer & Table

Walnut Hill and 75 has been expanding. New restaurants are continuously coming in (even Houndstooth’s newest Dallas location.) Blatt Beer & Table has joined giving the area a casual bar and eating space much like Gordon Biersch did in Shops of Legacy. Here’s hoping it has more success though. Blatt has a large inside and […]

Street’s Fine Chicken

Ever think to yourself, you know what would make fried chicken better, a French flair? Yeah, me either. And that’s why we need Street’s Fine Chicken. Street’s Fine Chicken is a quality Southern food restaurant with its specialty being (you guessed it) chicken. I’m southern and love my fried food. I can happily say that […]

The Diner of Dallas

Since it’s National Pie Day, I thought it would be the perfect day to tell you about the Diner. The Diner has been in Dallas for 18 years. It might not be from the 50’s but they have tried their best to maintain that style and esthetic. The menu is true to a diner, simple, […]

Hash House a Go Go

The San Diego native Hash House a Go Go is now in North Texas. Bringing farm fresh staples like giant chicken and waffles. If there’s one thing people know to be true about the south is that we love fried chicken. Being from Texas, it’s normal to be skeptical of a place not from the […]

Sweet Daze: A Photo Worth a Thousand Calories?

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 […]

Sunday Sounds: Dome Dwellers

Denton natives, Dome Dwellers make today’s post of must listen to local artists. The Indie trio put on a great show and produce an upbeat sound similar to Saint Motel. Dome Dwellers recently played during the Dallas Observer Music Awards showcase in Deep Ellum. They were nominated for Best Rock Act and Best Guitarist, Michael […]
