Back by popular demand is North Texas’s largest event dedicated to all things food — and this time, it’s even cooler. Taste of Dallas is back this summer, now June 12-14th,  to satisfy the thousands of hungry tasters who love to stroll Dallas’s Fair Park and taste from restaurants all over North Texas.

“The foodies demanded it, and we delivered,” said Billy McEntee, owner of Taste of Dallas. “This year, the tastings will be hotter than the weather, and sure to spice up an already fun-filled weekend at Taste of Dallas.”

Taste of Dallas is home to some of the best brisket, ribs, and chicken BBQ in the region. In true Taste of Dallas style, the event’s participating BBQ pitmasters will battle it out over three days in the $25,000 BBQ Battle Royale to see who is the king of the BBQ ring. You won’t want to miss this.   Continue reading

Eat Me: Quail “Wings” at Bowl and Barrel

quailby Steven Doyle

Chicken wings will always be all the rage in bars because they are so easy to make as they are to eat. Flavor delivered on its own natural stick, if you will. Somewhere there are a ton of quail scurrying about without the use of their legs, and we are all the better for it. These are very meaty and spicy specimens found at Bowl and BarrelContinue reading

Dim Sum Of This At Kirin Court

by Steven Doyle

What might possibly be the Chinese version of tapas, dim sum is more than just a meal. It is a gathering and a ritual. Dim sum is as casual as it is formal.

For the uninitiated, dim sum is an assortment of steamed vegetables and dumplings, roasted meats, soups, noodle rolls, baked goods and tarts. Actually so much more hopefully. All the food items are presented in groups of threes in tiny steamer baskets made of bamboo or steel and hand selected based on the groups desires and shared communally with plenty of hot tea and lively conversation.               Continue reading

Eat Me: Kelly’s Reuben At Plano’s Kelly’s Eastside

reubenby Steven Doyle

There are some pretty tasty dining options in downtown Plano as I found out last night, beboppin’ in an out of more than a few last night. One such choice landed us at a spot called Kelly’s Eastside for one of the tastiest sandwiches we have sample in a some time. Perusing the menu, and after sampling the extremely rich crab artichoke dip, we left the selection to our bartender. We were up in the air about a burger or a sandwich. We are always on the hunt for the next best burger, so there is always that bent. And when ordering a burger we generally get it as close to plain as possible for two reasons. First, it just looks better in a photo. And second, you are able to actually taste the burger with out the addition of giant shards of avocado, or spilling in chili.

Our bartender was more hell-bent on us trying out a few of the sandwiches. Normally we would just order all of the above, but we had already swept through a few places in the downtown area, including Lockhart and DaLat. Then there was that super rich crab dip thing we just polished off.    Continue reading

We popped into So&So’s last night for a cold beer and found the pizza to be terrifically thin and crispy, just the way we prefer in case you are keeping tabs at home.  Be we also tasted the deconstructed pastor, which is a fancy way of saying pork belly nachos.    Continue reading

The Ivy Tavern soft opened a week ago, with the grand opening this past Saturday. Owned and operated by Lisa and Tom Georgalis, former owners of Inwood Tavern, can usually be found waling the tavern and the bodacious patio area which is decorated with a firepit, picnic tables and a variety of entertaining games such as man-sized Jingo blocks and darts. Visiting the tavern several times last week we were able to soak up what has already become an institution with what appears to be a large set of regulars.   Continue reading
