What Pie Did I Enjoy On National Pie Day? Amberjax Key Lime!

pieby Steven Doyle

To celebrate National Pie Day I published a list of some of our favorite pies in the Dallas area. However, after compiling the list it left me hankering for a slice of my very own today. After perusing my list I thought of even more recent pie sightings, and it occurred to me that I left off a very important slice. So I loaded up and headed towards Trinity Groves where Amberjax owner Larry Williams prepares pie all day to keep up with demand.

There are several sweet pies listed on the chalkboard with a few surprises on occasion, but nothing satisfies like a slice of Key Lime when dining on seafood. Perhaps this tradition started in Key West where seafood and limes are abundant, as is this delicious pie.      Continue reading

Scenes From My Cell Phone: Casa Rubia

rubiaby Steven Doyle

I am pretty much out every night checking on the wining and dining scene in DFW, but do not always have my souped up Sony cam with me. Those are the nights I snap away using my cell phone and often share those pics with the good folks on Facebook. I have over 5,000 photos on my cell, and thought I should be sharing some of those with you. Look for future editions of Scenes From My Cell Phone.

This photo was taken at Casa Rubia in Trinity Groves last week when they were running a special called Polenta con Trufe y Iberco. Basically it is a bowl of polenta with an egg, a smattering of Jamon Iberco, freshly shaved black truffles, and an Iberco jus poured table-side. I pronounced that it was the best thing to hit my mouth in ages and was totally elated. I implored my Facebook buddies to drop in the next evening for an order of their very own, but alas they ran out of the Iberco jus.  There was only so much to go around.

Last night I ran into Cody Sharp, the sous at Casa Rubia, and he informed me that I should stop by tonight where he would be serving the special once again. Seems a bone was freed and he was able to make another round of the Iberco jus.     Continue reading
