Kabuki Japanese

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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?

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, […]

The Eberhard: Brunch Edition

A newer addition to the Knox/Henderson area, The Eberhard takes time off nightlife to provide brunch. I have to start by mentioning the interior. The Eberhard is in a great location but they also have a thoughtful layout. It’s obvious that it’s a nightclub first but the open format and large windows give the perfect […]

Fast Furious Japanese Grill

Themed from the Fast & Furious movies, Fast Furious is a fast casual Pan-Asian restaurant worth the hype. When thinking about Asian fast food, you might picture Panda Express. Fast Furious has come in to change that. Though Fast Furious isn’t technically classified as fast food, it is served Chipotle style. You can choose from […]
