Lazaranda Means Incredible Fish In Crave Language

I recently had some beautiful dishes at Lazaranda in Addison, including a Sea Bass Ajillo, which is a seared Sea Bass with garlic and gaujillo peppers along with a dash of orange juice and tomato sauce. A true stand out. You may have heard about the small  group of restaurants from Mexico, with its single location in the States in the food capital of Addison, Texas Continue reading

Lolita’s New Menu Happily More Refined, But Not Expensive

Interestingly enough, I had never stopped into the Lemmon Avenue Mexican restaurant Lolita’s in the past. It is the restaurant in the location that has changed names many times in the past, and it becomes more of a night club later in the evenings, drawing a predominately Hispanic crowd. There have been mixed reviews in the past, but was recently tipped off that Lolita’s is doing a more refined plate with new ownership, and would be well worth my time to stop in for a visit. So I did.

Gone are the promised enchiladas, now replaced with a beautiful chile relleno (14). But not of the fried variety, instead this is poblano is roasted and stuffed zucchini, chorizo and Oaxacan cheese, and served with a side of cilantro-lime rice. And a perfectly grilled skin-on chicken breast, tender and juicy to the core.   Continue reading
