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

Texas Burrito Company Hits The Streets Of Dallas

I want to like food trucks. We have a small handful of very good trucks, but for the most part Dallas is bereft of the really good stuff. I would love to see some incredible ethnic trucks like the ones found across the country. I enjoyed East Side King in Austin run by Paul Qui that jams out fried potato noodles with pork and kimchi stew, mapo tofu chili, a pork melt and a pork chop sandwich. Dallas does have good trucks but would love to see more ethnicity to help stand out in a sea of burgers and pizza.     Continue reading

We Love The Truck Yard For So Many Reasons

DSC00820by Steven Doyle

The Truck Yard is an overwhelming smash success you go by mere body count each night, including those precarious evenings when most stay huddled at home watching television, or manicuring their cats. Last evening we checked out the food truck park located on the sizzling hot Lowest Greenville Avenue area directly south of Trader Joes on Sears Street. The recent flack that Dallas Morning News critic shoveled at the venue made us even more excited to sit and sip, since we seem to have polar opposite ideas on what is fun to do and chew in Dallas.

The ice cream vendor Carnival Barker was easily found directly at the front facing Trader Joes just under the giant neon ice cream cone. Plenty of guests were able to locate and devour the house-made ice cream as when we visited about 7pm last night the owner was fresh out of product. Aaron Barker stated that he has been upping the amount of ice cream he makes each day and is now looking for more equipment to keep up with demand. He did have a handful of frozen bananas for sale, and we all know that there is always money in the banana stand.  We have tasted the Barker ice cream on numerous occasions and love the stuff. Plenty of fun, inventive flavors when they are in stock. Continue reading

Cajun Tailgators, the Louisiana-inspired food truck is going brick and mortar on us and will open at their  location in downtown Plano at 1112 E 15th Street sometime in November. Owned and operated by Jason Key and Ann Keady,  their menu is revolving, but mainstays include items such as gumbo, jambalaya, and crawfish etouffee.

Specialty items that they are most famous for include favorites such as their crawfish pistolette which is a French roll that is fried and filled with cheese, spices and crawfish,  deep fried boudin balls, and their freshly made Natchitoches meat pies.    Continue reading

Isaac Rousso To Open Fast Casual Cuban Restaurant In Dallas

fairby Steven Doyle

I didn’t want to bury the story that Isaac Rousso gave us on yesterday’s craveRADIO show. While discussing his many ventures, including the State Fair, his food truck, and now the Draught House during Addison’s Oktoberfest, he leaked out the fact that he will actually be opening a fast casual Cuban restaurant and is currently looking for a space somewhere in Dallas.

Soon you will have those amazing Cuban sandwiches every day.

God bless you, Isaac.
