It’s Friday The 13th And We Have Some Lucky Dishes For You To Sample

by Steven Doyle

It’s Friday the 13th and for some superstitious types might considered this day unlucky.  But we have sampled a few dishes this week that with even the smallest shred of luck you might want to sample and turn all that Bad Joss around.   

Bún thịt nuớng at Saigon Block in Richardson is made of grilled pork and vermicelli. By far the luckiest thing we devoured all week.

The Roasted Red and Yellow Beet Salad at Nosh Euro Bistro as prepared by chef Jon Stevens is a lucky find, to be sure. Made with baby arugula, goat cheese, pecans and a  raspberry vinaigrette, it is by far one of our favorites in a growing list of restaurants that do such a salad.

Not officially open until April 17, 2012, the Oven Roasted Bone Marrow, Peekytoe crab garlic confit, greeen garbanzo beans, Cara Cara orange from Driftwood is haunting us. Luck be damned.

Need a lucky excuse to drive to Rockwall?  None other than Boots Burger which is only open midday for lunches and sells this gem of a burger out of a house located in a residential neighborhood where you will find children playing and sweaty men tending to their yards. Grandfathered in 1968 as a restaurant in this unusual setting, you will have no better luck as the day you sample your first Boots Burger. No website, but it is located at 701 Austin Street in Rockwall.

You want real luck? Check out the only firkin cask of the Zythos hopped Deep Ellum IPA that is being tapped at 4pm at the Fort Worth Flying Saucer today at 4pm.
