Friday’s Five Fabulous Food Finds

by Steven Doyle

Each week we scour the city in search of the very best Dallas has to offer. We check into restaurants both old and new looking for interesting food to discuss with you so you can make handy decision when dining out.

We do not necessarily write up each item we enjoy, and often have photos that we will save for another week. However, we will share some of the most awe-inspiring dishes on Friday in what we like to call Friday’s Five Fabulous Food Finds.      

Walk with us as we share this week’s five.

Ten Bells Tavern located on the cusp of the Bishop Arts District has it going on. We have already extolled the virtue of their fish and chip, as well as the unusual take on chicken wings. Today we sampled the fish cakes which are loaded with all sorts of seafood, including giant shards of shrimp. These light-as-a-feather cakes are perfect for sharing, or as a meal for one.

One of our favorite burgers isn’t as fresh as it could be, in fact it is just over 55 years old. This only makes the burger at Dairy-Ette taste even better. Something to be said about a well seasoned grill that makes a burger that much better.


Chef Omar Flores at Driftwood kicks it in his tiny kitchen on Davis in Oak Cliff. This charred octopus is packed with tender flavor, and served with dollops of smoked tomato vinaigrette. This is one of the city’s best dishes.

Forget the cheesy fries, the loaded kettle chips at Primebar in Uptown Dallas are a more adult version. These house-mase chips are filled with bacon and blue cheese crumbles, then tempered with a spicy pickled giardiniera.

We cannot ever forget the fresh flavor of the many burrata selections at Dough Pizzeria. Made in house, the burrata screams fresh and can take the bite off the final days of 90 degree Dallas weather.

    I went to Driftwood last night because of this suggestion. THANK YOU! The octopus was really, really good.

    It’s about time the public discovered the Dairy-ette. Love their cheeseburgers and malts!
