Big Fat Elvis Alive And Well At Twisted Root

Big Fat Elvisby Jennifer Thomas

Today Twisted Root announced its new shake, a decadent treat that channels the King himself, Elvis Presley. The shake blends 12 ounces of Twisted Root’s creamy homemade vanilla custard with Dude, Sweet Chocolate’s Tub of Love spread; a combination of peanut butter, dark chocolate and banana; for a rich and delicious combination of Elvis’s favorite things. And for a little something extra, it has even more fresh sliced banana and two heaping scoops of Twisted Root’s roasted peanut and bacon mixture mixed in.

In creating the shake, Twisted Root owner Jason Boso called upon Dallas’s premiere chocolatier, Katherine Clapner of Dude, Sweet Chocolate fame, and he hinted that this is the first of many future collaborations for the dynamic duo.   Continue reading

A Sneak Peek At Truck Park On Greenville Ave

If you have been around the construction of the new Trader Joes on Greenville Avenue you may have noticed across Sears Street to the south there is a little shack undergoing some renovations. That would be Jason Boso’s Truck Park, a unique blend of food trucks, a Philly Cheesesteak stand, a bar, and a tree house. Boso likens the new venture to a super cool clubhouse not too unlike the Little Rascals might have had if they could drink booze. Also sans that whole He-Man Woman Hater’s Club thing, too. We are pretty sure there will be plenty of women carousing around the Boso club.  Continue reading

Cowboy Chow To Close In Roanoke, Replaced With Tacos & Avocados

by Steven Doyle

Chef Jason Boso, best known for his thriving Twisted Root Burger Company, has announced plans to open a new concept called Tacos & Avocados. The fast, casual taco restaurant will feature quality ingredients in a down scale setting, with a focus on traditional and some not so traditional Mexican flavors. The space will also include a full bar with eight tequila-infused frozen margaritas, such as ginger-peach and watermelon-mint. The concept will also feature a self-serve and honor system paleta cart in the middle of the restaurant. Just slide a dollar into the coffee can and take any flavor you like.
