I am a sucker for an Indian restaurant, and love trying new ones that I spot along my merry way. Often times I have dinner remorse, or worse, dinner regret. Last night while zooming through Addison I spotted for the fifth time an Indian restaurant that has actually been in business since November, but it blended into the landscape a bit next to the Chili’s with its outlandish new makeover and glowingly bright paint job.
Barwachi Signature Indian Cuisine is part of a local family of restaurants that spread out as far as Denton, with an outpost in Plano and Carrollton. This also happens to be the very beautiful former Clay Pit location in Addison on Beltline. I was never a fan of the Indian fusion that was going on at Clay Pit, and avoided it other than a few sporadic family summits that were hosted at the now closed restaurant. I walked into Barwachi with much trepidation. Continue reading

See more of this great state with a full day road trip. One way to do it is to tour the “Way Out Wineries” (essentially the wineries south and southwest of Dallas, within approximately a 100 mile radius). Recommended in this gang:
Barking Rocks: Best Doggie Place. Seriously, the tasting room is open so the dog can come in and sniff around and meet the winery dog ‘cellar’. To see how hippies age, ask for Tiberia. People describe nearby county town Granbury as quaint too, with its square and courthouse. Babe’s chicken is just off the square. Continue reading

Okay, seeing as how this is my first craveDFW review we are heading west, young folks! And that means going to Lake Worth, and as any local will tell you that also means going to Ginger Browns. Or as the locals say, “Jinjuh Browns”.
The restaurant is nestled in a strip mall next to an Albertson off of Jacksboro Highway and you can’t miss the distinguishing sign. In addition parking is always a beast because Ginger Browns is that good. Continue reading

It was my very first Renaissance festival. I’m not entirely sure how that’s possible. But it’s true. I share that to explain why I wanted to go full out on my weekend visit to the Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie.
Step one, Renaissance costumes like these from HalloweenExpress.com. I know they are not required. But I always like an excuse to dress up and this seemed like an excellent one. I requested that my girlfriend and daughter do the same. The former was thrilled. The latter not-so-much. She’s nearly 14 so I should probably just be happy she agreed to go. She was just glad I gave her first pick at HalloweenExpress.com, where we got our period-appropriate garb.* Continue reading

Meet the Rib Whisperer Trace Arnold and witness the ultimate smoker he built that is 80-feet long and as big around as a tanker truck this weekend in Frisco at his newly opened 3 Stacks Smoke and Tap House. There will be free ‘que on hand as well as a peek at an official NASCARmobile.
Join the fun Saturday April 13, 2013 from 10am to 5pm at 4226 Preston Rd, Frisco. Call 469.287.9035 for more deets. It’s a party, folks. And for the record, I prefer not knowing what it takes to be called a Rib Whisperer.
