Eat Me: Kadu at Nora

kaduby Steven Doyle

This is the time of year when everything is infused with pumpkin. From lattes to beer, nothing escapes the gourd’s perfumed treatment. Personally, I prefer my pumpkin in pie form, or one of several delicious savory versions in Dallas such as the kadu at Nora on Greenville Avenue.

Kadu is one of Nora’s signature dishes that is made from sauteed pumpkin, garlic yogurt and an optional meat sauce. I always opt.  Continue reading

Kalachandji’s Offers A Cuisine Unlike Any In Dallas

kalachandjisby Steven Doyle

One of my first visits to Kalachandji’s was as a college student, and it was Thanksgiving. The meal included a visit to the Krishna temple escorted by one of the many devotees who live in the neighboring homes. With the meal we enjoyed a tofu turkey, which was actually much more delicious than it sounds. Although the spice level is very minimal, the repast was elegant and flavorful. We dined in the open air patio which is centered inside the restaurant.

During subsequent visits I was shown more of the cuisine, and always have a great sampling at the luncheon buffet which is excellently curated by the cooks, setting out just enough for the guests as necessary as not to compromise the quality of the food.   Continue reading

Harvest the Benefits of an Urban Flock

by Leslie Finical Halleck

Knowing exactly where your food comes from is comforting, to say the least. Knowing how your food is treated while it’s alive is even better. Because eggs are my primary source of animal protein, it’s important for me to know the chickens that produce them have a happy and healthy life. Keeping and caring for my own backyard chickens is the best way for me to ensure they do.

There is a big difference between a store-bought egg and a farm fresh egg. Factory farmed chickens are confined to small spaces with no access to the outdoors. Precious sunlight and foraging are not a part of their lives. Our options at the grocery store are better now that stores carry more organic and free-range eggs. However, even chickens raised in large scale “organic” or “free-range” operations may be confined with limited outdoor access for a majority of their life. As a result, a typical grocery store egg tends to be somewhat runny with a pale yellow yolk.       Continue reading

Top Knot Opening Above Dallas Uchi

Austin, TXby Steven Doyle

We were told when Uchi first opened that there would be a new concept above the restaurant later this year. True to that statement, Uchi announced todaythe name of their sixth restaurant, Top Knot. Chef and team announcements will be made in the next few weeks.

The menu at Top Knot consists of shared small plates that give a playful nod to the restaurant’s downstairs sibling Uchi. The food will bring together flavors from across Asia and farther afield. Top Knot will open initially for dinner and a full bar offering, including beer, wine, and sake on tap and distinctive cocktails. Brunch and lunch will launch in subsequent months. Specific menus will be shared in the next few weeks. Continue reading

Heim Barbecue in FW Opening Brick and Mortar

Heim Barbecue will open its first brick-and-mortar location at 1109 W. Magnolia Ave. in Fort Worth’s bustling Near Southside district.

After shadowing some of the top names in barbecue, including the owners of Franklin Barbecue and La Barbecue and hosting MEATClub pop-up dinners in their home, Travis and Emma Heim took a leap of faith by quitting their jobs, leasing a trailer, and opening Heim Craft Barbecue in February. The couple quickly developed a devoted following, receiving high acclaim for their signature Texas-style barbecue.

Heim’s new location will be open for lunch and dinner and will allow for expanded offerings to an already enthusiastic audience of barbecue lovers. Continue reading
