History of the Soup Dumpling and Where to Nab Them in Dallas

xlb1by Steven Doyle

Few things rock my world as much as xiao long bao. The mighty dumpling power-packed with a meatball, (beef, pork, crab, the usual round up) supplied with a generous amount of broth and pleated into a package of steamed love.

Most agree that the xiao long bao’s story begins in the Shanghai suburb of Nanxiang over nearly 150 years ago. It is believed that Huang Mingxian wanted to create a dumpling that would surprise and delight the guests of his restaurant, Ri Hua Xuan. The elegant pleated dumpling was made by adding aspic – or a jellified meat stock – to pork mince, so that once steamed the aspic would melt, thereby filling the inside of the dumpling with a flavorsome broth.

Tell us your favorites and we will run out today and sample one.  The big day is November 3rd, but we wanted you to try a few for lunch starting today. Continue reading

Fantastic Fish Tacos in Dallas

pinktaco_bajafish.jpgby Steven Doyle

Baja seems to be the best place to tag the origins of the fish taco. All my research points there, at least as far as North Americans are concerned. The true fact is somewhat murkier and no doubt flies back to the times of the original tortilla. You place between the fold with whatever you my have on hand. If that is a shard of beef, then it is a beef taco. For our early fishermen, it was the fish taco. Simple enough.

These special tacos are served at beach shacks as well as posh dining establishments, and the recipe continues to evolve. With choices ranging from grilled mahi mahi with tomatillo salsa to boiled lobster with chipotle lime butter, there really is something for everyone. The one thing that we all might agree on is that the best fish tacos are the ones eaten hot as you drip dry in the sun waiting for the next swell. Continue reading
