Friday’s Five Fabulous Food Finds of the Week

by Steven Doyle

We present five of our favorite dishes of the week that shouldn’t be missed in Dallas. The list doesn’t include anything we have featured elsewhere this week on craveDFW and shouldn’t be missed.

Check out a bit of food porn and taste what we have been up to this week.         

Located at 14724 Webbs Chapel in Carrollton, Monica’s Grill serves up a fine example of Salvadoran cuisine. Savor the pupusas and wash them down with a Salvadoran favorite, Kolashampan soda.

Known for their stone crabs and an all-you-can-eat stone crab night once a week, Trulucks also has some fine desserts — not that we usually partakein sweets after a fine meal of steak and crabs. The milk chocolate cake is pretty special, but the carrot cake is one of the finest examples of the pastry in Dallas.

Eddie’s Napoli is located at Firewheel in Garland and the owner (Eddie) is from Italy where he grew up cooking family meals and enjoying homemade pastas. We haven’t had a bad dish here, and truly enjoy the baked ziti.

We love our burgers in Dallas and one of our very favorites is Wingfield’s in Oak Cliff. This half pound patty is one of the biggest and best in the area and can be served with crinkle cut potatoes fried in bacon fat. How lovely.

We always get a rise out of Rise No. 1 located in the Inwood Village at Lovers and Inwood, and one menu item that beckons us with a song from the daughters of the river god Achelous is the Marshmallow Soup. The soup is actually made with goat cheese in a savory tomato soup, but it sounds more fun to order marshmallows.
