thai6by Steven Doyle

When asked where the most authentic Thai food in Dallas can be found I am taken back. There are so many fantastic Thai restaurants in Dallas and Fort Worth, and many have super authentic dishes available if you are in the know, or simply ask. However, for a taste of Thailand, and an experience that is truly unforgettable, reach out to the local Buddhist Temple located at 8484 Stults which is off Forest Lane near Central Expressway.    Continue reading

The Joy of Ballpark Food: From Hot Dogs to Haute Cuisine

texasby Steven Doyle

Baseball is a game that is identified with food. We even sing about it at every ballpark during the seventh inning stretch: “….buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack…” The famous song was written by Jack Norworth in 1908.

From the early part of the twentieth century until the 1980s, classic baseball fare consisted mostly of hot dogs, ice cream, peanuts, and Cracker Jack. Then ballparks slowly began to sell new items.

Lunch at Theodore

img_8782by Rhonda Dutton

I have seen six of Wes Anderson’s eight films, so I would say that I’m a fan (and now need to go back and see the remaining two). Therefore, I was so very open to The Theodore’s magic little world in NorthPark Center. Gifted to us by the same cast of characters who brought us Smoke, Bolsa and Bolsa Mercado, Chicken Scratch, The Foundry, and Bar Belmont, The Theodore transports you from modern luxury shopping to a charming world in Wes Anderson’s mind that is also inhabited by Teddy Roosevelt.

This theme is consistently delivered everywhere, even on the menu which feels like it could have been torn from TR’s personal diary.   Continue reading
