Enjoy A Plethora Of Our Favorite Sandwiches In Dallas

by Steven Doyle

There is little to make a sandwich wonderful other than  fantastic bread, well thought out seasonings and spreads, and a filling that should be unsurpassed. When deciding a list of our favorites, it seemed a more daunting task than originally thought. So many more came to mind as the list was settled.

With all the heartache of selecting which can stand alone as the very best, we humbly submit in no particular order sandwiches that we enjoy. Tell us your favorites and we will run out today and sample one. Continue reading

Getting Your Indian Fix At Chaat Cafe

by Steven Doyle

Chaat Café  is billed as a fresh and casual Indian fast food restaurant, but there is absolutely no resemblance to what you might consider fast food. The food is served in the same relative time as any other restaurant, and is hand-made to order with precision and care. The concept is a national chain, but each location has a local flair. Since Irving has a tremendous Indian population, it is very popular with the locals.

The menu at Chaat is fairly extensive with a full line of chaat, or Indian nibbles such as Pani Puri (crisp shells stuffed with potatoes and garbanzo beans) or a variety of Pakora and Samosas.

2013 Beer in Review

by Brian Wall

This past was an interesting one for the craft brew scene in Dallas-Ft. Worth and surrounding areas. A few breweries opened and graced us with an ever widening expanse of offerings, every brewery celebrated a birthday and continued to grace us with the beers we love, a few breweries took home some hardware from competitions and beer festivals seem to have increased in popularity. This alone would be impressive for an area but add the ongoing beer dinners, North Texas Beer Week and the incoming craft beers and a beer lover can safely enjoy a plethora of styles that commercial breweries lack from their tasteless and soulless swill.

Texas Big Beer- Czar of Texas Imperial Stout

by Brain Wall

Texas Big Beer is a relatively new brewery that most have not heard of in the DFW metroplex. It might be due to the limited amount of brews, seven on their website with one of those in planning and two awaiting label approval, or it may be due to the location being northwest of Houston in Buna, Texas. Their website reads like a home brewer that decided to start up a brewery, the wish of almost every home brewer out there. Nothing excites a home brewer more than the thought of starting a brewery and making beer that everyone loves to drink. I would imagine it would be similar to watching your child win the spelling bee or score the winning point. Continue reading

Lark on the Park Hosting Brooklyn Beer

garrett-oliverby Steven Doyle

Lark on the Park has quickly become one of our restaurant treasures. The food is always spot on, the cocktails are fantastic, and best of all it is one of the easiest restaurants to get in and out of despite the nearby construction. Always park in the garage just to the right of the front door for speedy valet in and out.

All that aside, Lark on the Park will host world-renowned Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster Garrett Oliver for a specially curated beer experience Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 6:30 p.m. at its location at 2015 Woodall Rodgers Freeway across from Klyde Warren Park. A special dinner will follow where you will enjoy six beers and menu selections prepared by the Lark chefs.    Continue reading
