A Short Trip To Spain With Si Tapas

by Steven Doyle

We love our tapas, and probably a bit disappointed that the term is becoming a bit diluted with the use for anything small. Small plates does not equal tapas. Tapas are these marvelous plated dishes from Spain and basically snacks and appetizers. Since dinner can be served as late as midnight in this country, you might find yourself bar hopping and sampling a few items from probably a dozen different tapas the bar has on hand that evening.

Most likely you will be served several styles of olives, breads, a bit of slow cooked beef, battered squid, sausages or a tortilla de patatas . Actually the more you drink the better the tapas become.    Continue reading

The Texas Rangers Have Their Own Food Truck!

DSC06777by Steven Doyle

One of my very favorite holidays is close at hand. No, not Easter. Opening Day of baseball is one of the last vestiges of Americana and well worth taking a day off with the family to take in tradition. In preparation for the big day the good folks at the Ballpark at Arlington, home to the Texas Rangers, spent the off season sprucing up to make your experience even greater. This is code-speak for ‘more food’. Continue reading

Dosas And Toys This Weekend In Deep Ellum

DSC04249by Steven Doyle

Last night the Dosa food truck made its debut at the Sprouts on Henderson. I tried the Paper Masala that was filled with potato,  and it was the best thing I put in my mouth in a very long time. The very large portioned crepe is crispy and wafer thin, much thinner than the other dosas found on the menu.

The plate comes with a cup of dal soup, or sambar, and also two chutneys. One of the chutneys is a bit spicy, the other is cooler with a hint of coconut. This dosa and its sides are 100% vegan and 100% tasty.   Continue reading

Food and Fundraising on Wheels: Thanking DFW Food Trucks

by Lily Watson

Food trucks have been popping up across the U.S. for the past few years, and Dallas and Fort Worth have been lucky enough to be a major part of that movement. I love going over to the Dallas Arts District for food truck lunch on Friday for some street tacos, a sweet snack and an extra side of Vitman D as I soak up the sun at my picnic table.

My first day at the Red Cross I toured our facilities and was introduced to our Emergency Response Vehicles (ERVs for short). These trucks go out to major home fires or communities affected by disaster distributing beverages, snacks and even hot meals to victims and relief workers. I remember the eyebrows raising on my tour guide as I delightfully exclaimed, “Wow! Who knew the Red Cross had our very own line of food trucks?!” Read more at Red Alert
