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 decisions 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.   

The ever loving pho and banh mi combo at La Me is pretty incredible by anyone’s standards. The broth is a perfect mixture of beef and spices, accompanied by plenty of noodles, vegetation and meats. The banh mi is superb. The bread is crisp yet yielding with a slight lacerating affect to the bite. The pork pate makes this grilled pork sandwich one of the very best in our city. Located at 9780 Walnut St in Richardson.

Sevan G&G Café is located on lower Greenville Avenue in Dallas and features an odd mixture of Mediterranean and American food. You can get a meze plate while your partner snacks on a very good chicken fried steak. The salads are super fresh and crisp – and large. This day we sampled the Kafta wrap, which is a sly blend of spiced beef and lamb made into small disks, slathered with hummus and a generous supply of lettuce and tomato.

The crispy chicken sandwich at Union Bear is pretty damned good. All sloppy with pickled slwa and spicy house-made mayo, this homage to mom’s fried chicken makes the mark. With the added supply of house-cut fries, this is a meal that can only be topped by one of the many $5 beers. Well, ALL the beer is $5. Yea us!

A burger from the same people that bring you BBQ, Steaks, Mexican, Cajun and Seafood, Pappas Burgers are like most of the Houston-based chain’s food is wacky good. Well, except for their BBQ, that needs some work. The nearest Pappas Burger (for now) from Dallas is located in Fort Worth at 2700 West freeway. Otherwise you will need to hop a plane to Houston for the other two locations. Like the Rolling Stones, this burger is Meaty, Beaty, Big, and Bouncy. That’s a good thing.

Quatro Leches from la Duni. Not much else can be said, except “holy hell”. Its creamy and lush and worth a trip to one of the many locations around Dallas. This plate is as beautiful as Dunia herself.
