The Moreno family, who owns several locations of La Popular Tamale House, have decided to open a Mexican restaurant in East Dallas in the growing artsy district at Peak and Elm. In fact, the new restaurant will be called Peak and Elm Cocina and Bar.
The new restaurant has been under construction with great attention for detail to the existing space. The restaurant sits on what was formerly the street car line, and just across the street once housed the street cars at the end of their run through East Dallas. For this reason Jesse Moreno says he plans on bringing one of the original cars to the back patio area for private dining. Continue reading

Can tacos be Artisan? This question has been rattling around my taco-ladened brain since the Tacobots invaded
Good2Go a few weekends ago. What is above gourmet in the Taco World? How does one classify a taco that goes so far beyond what many consider “specialty” or “restaurant” tacos? Cause whatever that would be is what Good2Go is. Next level stuff. Tacos made by the hands of God a delivered down to mere mortals upon baskets of plastic and aluminum foil. Continue reading
