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.

And for that, my friend, look no further than Deli News for the perfect pastrami sandwich and a side of matzo ball soup.

Malibu Poke Opens on McKinney Ave

Restaurateur Jon Alexis is opening his second Dallas location of the award-winning elevated, quick-serve poke restaurant, Malibu Poke this week at 2355 Olive Street, Suite 145 in the popular new mixed-use development McKinney & Olive.
Officially open as of yesterday, Malibu is a natural fit for Uptown and Downtown Dallas’ heavy business lunch scene. The restaurant has built a loyal following since opening in 2017 by offering the fresh seafood diners have to come expect from Jon Alexis (TJ’s Seafood Market & Grill) in a Matt McCallister (of nationally-acclaimed FT33 fame, with the highly anticipated Homewood opening next week)-created poke menu.
This is not your typical quick serve poke – fresh fish is butchered daily, sauces are made from scratch, kale is hand-massaged, and orders are placed on a high resolution self serve kiosk.
