It has been just over a month since Khanh Nguyen opened his new pizza haunt ZaLat next door to his famous late night pho restaurant DaLat on Fitzhugh in Dallas. Since then he has had a growing number of fans take advantage of the delivery service which roughly covers a five mile radius of the new shop. Since we broke the story most of the Dallas media picked up on the fact that Khanh is actually making one of the best pizzas around – and for good reason. Continue reading

News from the undisputed King of Late Night Pho, Khanh Nguyen owner of DaLat, says that he will open a late night pizza parlor next to his pho-riffic restaurant on Fitzhugh in Dallas. Nguyen will be taking over the former Pastazio’s location which closed in November of 2014 and situated next door to DaLat at 2519 North Fitzhugh Avenue. The restaurateur plans to name the pizza joint ZaLat, to open late nights and with delivery. Projected to open sometime in February.
ZaLat will be open from 5pm to midnight to start, with the ultimate goal of staying open until 4am. Nguyen said in an interview today that neighboring El Come Taco is looking at staying open late into the night as well, making that section of Fitzhugh a dining Mecca for service industry workers and the apres-bar crowd. He is also working with El Come to develop a pizza with a south-of-the-border flair, a street taco pizza made with al pastor. Other pies with an ethnic flair include a Reuben that he says is to die for, and might be better than its sandwich counterpart. We are particularly looking forward to a Thai pizza based on the meatball shooters served at DaLat.

Each week we ask the question, “What’s Eating Your Phone”? This is where we all can join in on the foodie fun and send in your latest dining photo that has you all jazzed.

For years when asked where to dine in Plano and even further north of Dallas there were few choices. Certainly there are plenty of national chains to choose from, and plenty of Indian restaurants, some decent, some not so much. The choice for many suburbanites was to make a trek into the inner city of Dallas and its surrounding neighborhoods. However, in recent weeks there have been some moves to change that and actually bring some of the better restaurants to the burbs.
The first to come to mind is the Bishop Arts District BBQ haven, Lockhart Smokehouse that is operational and located in downtown Plano at 1026 E 15th. There you may already sample some of the best ‘que North Texas ha to offer. Now in Plano. Continue reading
I was in DaLat a few weeks ago to see what Khahn Nguyen was serving up on his new menu. The food was amazing, and my group was entertained by Khahn’s karaoke crooning. He spoke of the new sign which was just installed, and said he was waiting until the sign paid for itself. I do love Khahn, and love even more to scream Khaaaaaahn every time he is sighted.
More on the new menu soon, but just had to share this really cool photo of the very retro looking sign snapped by craveDFW friend, Erin Garner. Happy Friday. Continue reading
