Mambo Seafood opened on Northwest Highway just a few years back, and is located across the street from Pappas BBQ. For those unfamiliar with the Texas based casual dining chain, they are originally located in the Houston area and have since spread to other areas across Texas. You will typically find the restaurant nestled into primarily Hispanic neighborhoods as this seems to be their target market. As any Texan who is grocery savvy knows, this does not preclude anyone from joining in the fiesta. Continue reading

I recently had some beautiful dishes at Lazaranda in Addison, including a Sea Bass Ajillo, which is a seared Sea Bass with garlic and gaujillo peppers along with a dash of orange juice and tomato sauce. A true stand out. You may have heard about the small group of restaurants from Mexico, with its single location in the States in the food capital of Addison, Texas Continue reading
While researching new restaurant listings in the Dallas-Fort Worth area I noticed that another chapter of the Texas buffet Zorro’s was opening in Hurst. This might not be typical fodder for the average craveDFW reader, but since George Hamilton is in Dallas through April 22 while on tour with La Cage Aux Folles, I thought it might be befitting that the star of the riotous film Zorro the Gay Blade check out the small restaurant chain known for daily buffet sirloin steaks.

Last evening we were invited to check out the exciting new dinner series at CampO Modern Country Bistro in Oak Cliff prepared by chef Matt McCallister. The dinner was an inspiration of Louisiana Foods Total Catch which has been introduced to the area by Dallas fishmonger Jon Alexis at TJ’s Seafood Market.
The Total Catch owners PJ Stoops and Bill Tellez were at the dinner and introduced each fish McCallister cooked for the capacity crowd. The Total Catch program is a straight forward idea that culls all the by-catch fish that boat captains yield while casting for more common breeds. Continue reading
Lazaranda Mexican Seafood Grill quietly opened nearly two weeks ago in Addison. The new Mexican restaurant is part of a very small chain located in Monterrey that includes five of their restaurants, and is the first of its brand to open in the United States. The casual restaurant serves primarily grilled seafood dishes made with a lazaranda, a small basket that holds the fish while roasted on the grill.
We checked out the new restaurant this week to get a feel for its surroundings and menu and were quite pleased with the findings. We chose not to attend the media blitz that occured before the opening and paid for our meal this past weekend. Continue reading

We get our share of interesting mail at craveDFW but today a reader shared an website that we found irresistible. When the site popped up we were introduced to the world of cannibalism. You heard correctly, there are seemingly normal citizens of Los Angeles that are eating other seemingly normal citizens for the ultimate in Soylent Green.
Maneuvering through the website we found a few interesting points. Foremost on our minds was how do they procure their meat. The site explains that they acquire their cadavers through legal and discrete means saying “On the individual level, bodies are often bequeathed to us. For some, this is a way to supplement life insurance and offset funerary expenses,” leading us to believe this is not fresh meat, but rather corpses that they are able to harvest to meet their needs.
