When a popular steakhouse chef breaks out and opens a taco joint in the burbs you know it will be something special. First, an honest-to-goodness classically trained chef doesn’t know how to leave well enough alone. They think, they create. They also have a passion to feed people, and this is what has become of chef Mo Assi who is owner of Crush Taco. Crush is located off the Dallas Tollway in Frisco near El Dorado.

Crush Taco Makes A Limited Soft Shell Crab Taco You Won’t Want To Miss

crushby Steven Doyle

Chef Mo Assi is now a taco man up north in far Frisco. The days of fine dining in a traditional sense are behind the good chef, and today it is all about the taco. Crush Taco, that is.

The Neapolitan pizza craze continues to burn through the DFW area. The pizza is different, to be sure, but we have embraced this style which began with the first VPN certified pizzeria in Texas, Cavalli, which began its pie making in Irving.

Today DFW has a smattering of pretty fantastic Neapolitan pizzerias including the freshly opened Pizzeria Testa Napoletana Restaurant in Frisco which is owned by Rod Schaefer. Schaefer’s mother comes from a long line of Italian pizza makers. In fact the Testa family was once considered the royal pizza makers for the King of Naples.   Continue reading
