Fantastic Fish Tacos in Dallas

pinktaco_bajafish.jpgby Steven Doyle

Baja seems to be the best place to tag the origins of the fish taco. All my research points there, at least as far as North Americans are concerned. The true fact is somewhat murkier and no doubt flies back to the times of the original tortilla. You place between the fold with whatever you my have on hand. If that is a shard of beef, then it is a beef taco. For our early fishermen, it was the fish taco. Simple enough.

These special tacos are served at beach shacks as well as posh dining establishments, and the recipe continues to evolve. With choices ranging from grilled mahi mahi with tomatillo salsa to boiled lobster with chipotle lime butter, there really is something for everyone. The one thing that we all might agree on is that the best fish tacos are the ones eaten hot as you drip dry in the sun waiting for the next swell. Continue reading

Where To Find A Great Philly Cheesesteak In The DFW Area

kofp_cheesesteakby Steven Doyle

A cheesesteak is a crusty roll filled with thin slices of sautéed ribeye and melted cheese. The cheese of choice is Cheez Whiz, but provolone is an acceptable substitution. For the perfect cheesesteak there needs to be a balance of flavors, textures and what is often referred to as the “drip” factor. Other toppings may include fried onions, sautéed mushrooms, and jalapenos. Cheesesteaks are fast, portable and make for the perfect meal.

In Philly there are two camps on who makes the best sandwich. Pat’s King of Steaks is the actual decedent of the originator of the cheesesteak.   Pat Olivieri invented the steak sandwich in 1930. Since then, Pat’s has grown from a little stand at the southern end of South Philly’s Italian Market to one of the most famous cheesesteak shops in the world, albeit still in the same location (and still the only location). Another Philly favorite, in Philly, is Geno’s. Geno’s has been making its version from the same location for more than forty years and is a super popular choice. Like Pat’s, Geno’s is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.   Continue reading

fw burgerby Steven Doyle

May is National Burger Month and Del Frisco’s Grille celebrates with a burger of the month at each of their restaurants in the DFW area. All three locations in Uptown Dallas, Southlake Town Square and Fort Worth’s Sundance Square are participating with a unique burger specially created by their respective chefs.

First stop on the Del Frisco burger tour is the “Bass Fort Worth Chili Burger” which is featured at Del Frisco’s Grille Fort Worth in Sundance Square. This burger has a base of chili, bacon, beef, onions, and cheese. This burger is dedicated to the memory of Executive Chef Russ Huey and incorporates bread from Empire Bakery. Executive Chef Carter Reyenga said, “It is two American classics in one. Chili and a burger. Two prime beef patties topped with house ground prime chili that is slow braised with Bass beer. It is topped with shredded cheddar, diced onions and sloppy sauce. All fitting between a local brioche bun.”    Continue reading

Saturday Brunch Starts at Del Frisco’s Grille in Uptown

It is 11:01 on Saturday morning. As I stare out of the window at Del Frisco’s Grille in Uptown, I feel sorry for the crowd opposite outside Bread Winners. Not only do they have a 30-minute wait to look forward to but, at the end, they will be paying similar prices for similar things in dowdier surroundings as I am here – but without the wait. Crab Benedict is $15.50 vs. $15.99 at Bread Winners. The pork burrito is $14.00 vs $12.99 for a chorizo one (with potatoes). The red velvet waffle is $12.50 vs. $11.98 for a strawberry and cream waffle with 2 strips of bacon. The fresh orange screwdriver, made with Tito’s vodka, is $5 vs. (apparently) N/A at Bread Winners.   Continue reading

Earlier in the week Community Beer Company announced the release of their first two bottled beers at Del Frisco Grille. Both are hand bottled in the 750ml. We enjoyed both the heady Inspiration Ale and the Trinity Tripel which are award winning  Belgian-style beers.

“It has been an exciting 8 months of keg-only offerings since our opening in January 2013,” said Kevin Carr, founder of Community Beer Company. “And in that time, we’ve released a total of 9 beers, won 6 awards, and had a lot of fun being a part of the craft beer movement in North Texas. We are excited to release two of our Belgian-style beers for the first time in bottle format. By bottle-conditioning Inspiration and Trinity Tripel, we are able to bring out the complexities of these incredible beers otherwise not possible in keg format.”   Continue reading
