DSC03908by Steven Doyle

Since we are on a trompo taco kick we set sights for one of our favorite spots across from Bachman Lake to Bachman Tacos and Grill set inside the gas station at 3311 Northwest Highway. There you walk to the gas station’s counter to prepay for however many tacos or burritos you might want, then present your ticket to the cooks at the taco grill.

What you will taste is one of the better trompo tacos sliced straight from the spinning grilled meat. These are piping hot and spicy with insanely juicy slivers of pork. Add the tasty salsa verde, and a squirt of fresh lime for the perfect bite of taco goodness that scream “eat me”.  We happen to know this is chef Kent and Tracy Rathbun favorite taco n Dallas, and can be spotted noshing on a few from time to time.   Continue reading

kingsby Steven Doyle

We have made plenty of lists in the past, and certainly soup has been a big draw for the cold, wintery months such as we are experiencing. One of our favorite soups comes from King’s Noodles (read about that place here). There are plenty of mainstays in Dallas such as Fearing’s tortilla soup, a recipe that will not, and should not ever leave that menu. Other perennials include the marshmallow soup at Rise No. 1 which is actually a rich tomato soup with pillows of roasted goat cheese.

Make a better soup and the world will beat down your door, especially when it is 25 degrees in Dallas.

Today we offer a list of some recent favorites. You will want to check these out in your travels about town this week.    Continue reading
