Eat Me: Perry’s Massive Chop

perrysby Steven Doyle

It is a massive haunch of pork, cooked with perfection and carved elegantly table-side. Table-side service seems to be a lost art form, and I would personally like to see this more of a trend in coming years. Consider a flaming crepe with its delightful bit of pageantry that should be experienced at least once in a life time and not merely relegated to film of a forgotten past. That said, the Perry’s Steakhouse chop is that bit of a throwback. We provide a video below for your consideration.    Continue reading

Local WingBucket Planning Expansion

DSC04093by Steven Doyle

There is nothing quite as delicious as that perennial bar snack, the chicken wing. The tiny blasts of tender flavor can be jooked up in all sorts of seasoning and impart whatever imaginative smack the cook wishes to present. However, the sad state of affairs with this particular chicken part is that in recent years the wing has been relegated to frozen pre-cooked and pre-flavored masses of disappointment. There are, however, several terrific places in Dallas to find the chicken wing in its natural glory, made fresh and from scratch and coated with as much imagination as the bird can stand. Enter WingBucket.

Owned by Nhat Ngo who is a second generation restaurant owner, and is personally on his fourth attempt at creating something successful. As the saying should go (at least in Ngo’s case) fourth time a charm. Ngo comes from a family who specialized in pho, and has restaurants across DFW. What his family did for noodles Ngo wishes to do for chicken.    Continue reading
