Off The Cuff, a new neighborhood bar coming to Deep Ellum is scheduled to open its doors in March. Dallas restaurant veterans Alex Hines and Tan Mai have a simple goal for their new bar concept – an upbeat environment where everyone feels comfortable and welcome.

The phrase “off the cuff” originated in the United States during the Great Depression Era, meaning spontaneous or without prior preparation – and that’s exactly what you’ll find here- a neighborhood bar as eclectic as the neighborhood it’s joining. “Our goal is to create a comfortable and energetic environment for everyone and really emphasize the word “service” in customer service,” said Off The Cuff co-owner Tan Mai.

Nothing new has been invented in the past hundred years that might exceed the perfection of a slab of tasty beef pounded thick and hand breaded and deep fried. The craggy crisp layers are an exciting place for unctuous creamed gravy to lay rest in anticipation of your first bite. Continue reading

There are so many shops selling the pupusa in San Salvador, “the competition is great so the prices are very low,” explains, Eduardo Ventura, the manager of Pupusas Mama Tia in East Dallas on Buckingham, which is owned by his family. “You can find pupusas for 25 cents a piece.”   Continue reading
