Want To Own A Food Truck? We Tell You How

by Steven Doyle

This week we spent an afternoon mulling over food trucks in the Arts District of Dallas.  The many trucks lined up to sell their tacos, sliders and baked potatoes, and with the unseasonably beautiful weather hoards of people crept from the towers of downtown to enjoy a leisurely stroll and a fond repast.

We were joined by Natalie Roffino of US Food Trucks who has played a great role in the Dallas culinary scene for some time now. She has been the junior director for the Texas Chef’s Association for the past three years.     Continue reading

Taste Dallas by Chocolate Tours

by Jerry Stewart

Something pretty fascinating is going on each weekend in Dallas. A busload of food enthusiasts load up and discover Dallas by Chocolate, a fun recreational peek into all things culinary.  The main thrust of the tours has been chocolate but there will be a concerted focus in coming months to branch out into other food related arenas and going into unusual local markets, farms, cheese makers, restaurants and shops.   Continue reading

A Visit To Polk-A-Dot Bakery

by Jerry Stewart

I had a chance to stop into the Polk-A-Dot Bakery this weekend and found some pretty marvelous goods being offered at this one year old business. The very quaint bakery is located in Addison Circle served breakfast and lunch, but is open most nights until 9pm, offering their guests spectacular coffees and free wifi on into the night.

Owner Narcy Gonzalez can be found bussing about tending to details and a certain happiness quotient as her patrons snapped up all the fresh cookies, brownies and cupcakes she has to offer.     Continue reading

Hey Grandpa, What’s For Supper?

by Steven Doyle

It was a pretty decent culinary weekend for me. Most every Saturday and Sunday I am working the Dallas by Chocolate tours where I am acting tour guide. This is a pretty good way to glide through four or five food destinations in just a few hours, grabbing samples and ideas along the way. For the most part this has been just chocolate and pastry destinations, but look for more savory destinations soon. I will be assembling some mystery tours and hitting some of my favorite hidden gems through out the city. How fun is that?

With this in mind, I wanted to share a few of my favorite bites from the past few days.    Continue reading

For every box of cookies Liberty Burger uses, Bicycles Plus is donating $1.00 to troop 2504.

Going Local at Bolsa Mercado

by Steven Doyle

This weekend we took a stroll into the fairly new Bolsa Mercado top check out some of the local products they are moving at break-neck speeds. We ran into on of the owners, Chris Zielke and he showed us around a bit. You will recognize the name from his other Bolsa, the restaurant, just a few doors down the street.

“This is so much different than running the restaurant. I come in on a Monday morning and the shelves are bare, and I have to start all over again,” said Zielke.                Continue reading
