Battle of the Fast Food Fish Sandwich

For those that follow along on social media, I have been spending my off hours hitting up fast food haunts swimming for the best in fish sandwiches. This goes along with our 40-day theme of seafood during the Lent season, but also gives us an excuse to over-enjoy our favorite type of food. Anything the swims or crawls across the ocean floor is fair game.

With all this in mind we present a myriad of fast food fish sandwiches. Continue reading

The Best Fish and Chips in Dallas

Fish and chip shops were originally small family businesses, often run from the ‘front room’ of the house and were commonplace by the late 19th century Britain.

Through the latter part of the 19th century and well into the 20th century, the fish and chip trade expanded greatly to satisfy the needs of the growing industrial population of Great Britain. In fact you might say that the Industrial Revolution was fuelled partly by fish and chips. Continue reading

A life without Mexican food is no life at all. This is one of the many mottos that Lala’s Mexican Café holds dear. Owner Michelle Mireles has put a unique spin on this category de cuisine and is sharing with her customers how to live la vida verde.

Revisiting Tortas Insurgentes For Alambras and Breakfast

torta cabby Steven Doyle

We have discussed Tortas Insurgentes before, it is a little Mexican restaurant with the Mexican green VW cab as its mascot located on Northwest Highway and Webbs Chapel in the shopping center anchored by WalMart. They bill themselves as a Mexico City taqueria and I find myself enamoured with this place, dining here at least once a week for breakfast.

The breakfast is cheap and hearty. I usually do not eat until much later in the evening after an early morning repast. Think scrambled egg loaded with chorizo and potatoes served with house-made corn tortillas. These corn tortillas seem to be served only with breakfast as I have been here numerous times for lunch and never see these. But have ordered breakfast for lunch and boom! there they are.
