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 →
We love our fried chicken, and have been seeking out the very best Dallas has to offer. We scoured the streets and found some with an ethnic twist, others are straight forward crispy fried and juicy.
We had to eliminate a few that didn’t qualify as traditional, such as Bon Mua’s fried Cornish hen, which is still worth making the drive to Carrollton. In making our list we were shocked at how many plates of fried chicken we had sampled over the past months. Col Sanders would have said he was too drunk to taste that chicken after just a few of these places.
The exact origin of macaroni and cheese is unknown, though it most likely hails from Northern Europe, with the earliest known recorded recipe being scribbled down in 1769. A staple of American cuisine, the creamy combo made its way to the United States courtesy of Thomas Jefferson, who, while visiting France, became enamored of fashionable pasta dishes served there. He brought back noodle recipes and a pasta machine, since this foodstuff was unavailable in the Colonies. As president, he served macaroni and cheese at an 1802 state dinner. Continue reading →
The dining room is the first to make an impact on a guest the first time they visit Hattie’s located in Bishop Arts. Hattie’sis the anchor that consistently draws guests in both day and night for fantastic low-country cuisine, dishes that not only are found in Louisiana but circumnavigate the map eastward and up through the Carolinas. These are rich hearty dishes that are familiar but lend themselves to an upscale atmosphere. Continue reading →
The Chicken and Waffle phenomenon dates back to 1930’s Harlem to Wells Supper Club billed as “Home of Chicken and Waffles Since 1938.” They claim to be the first to sell the dish during the Jazz Age, when late-night diners would order breakfast or dinner to soak up the evening’s alcohol, and get them safely on their way home.

Whitney Filloon, the editor of Eater Dallas, eagle-eyed the help wanted sign on Craigslist announcing the opening for the execu-chef at Hatties in the Bishop Arts District. It is true that Esteban Galindo is leaving the ten year old restaurant. Chef Galindo has been with the restaurant for eight of those ten years.
We made a call to Galindo who was busy prepping for a party and he said he was indeed leaving Hatties and has tendered his resignation, but gave a two week notice. Look for the chef to start work at Dallas Chop House in coming weeks.
