There has been this terrific trend in past years of adding an egg to most anything to make a more supple and delicious. The burger is a prime target for this unabashed egging, and always a welcome garnish on any style of tartare. The egg, if prepared correctly, provides a silky self-saucing thrill that ups the ante to sandwiches, pasta and salads. Eggs are not just for breakfast. Today we explore a handful of primo examples of how the egg has enhanced many dishes in the Dallas area.    Continue reading

Where To Find A Great Banh Mi In Dallas

bahn_miby Steven Doyle

The banh mi has become more popular in the past few years in Dallas. You see them on menus fused, and sometimes dazed and confused. The sandwich is a by-product of the French occupation of Vietnam, and starts with a wonderful baguette that displays an ever so crisp exterior, and a more inviting soft center. As for fillings, we often think grilled pork, and what a wondefful selection that can be. However, in Vietnam you might find a more interesting and broader choice of meats including Vietnamese sausage, roasted pork, spreadable pork liver pâté, grilled chicken, chicken floss, sardines in tomato sauce, soft pork meatballs in tomato sauce, head cheese, fried eggs, and tofu.

To top your sandwich, you might select fresh or pickled vegetables such as cucumber slices, cilantro, pickled carrots and daikon in shredded form. Common condiments include sriracha, sliced chilies, mayonnaise, and even cheese.

Miss Chi Is Cute And She Can Cook

There appears to be a new restaurant power couple developing restaurants at break neck speeds in Dallas. Opening their first restaurant, Wicked Po Boy, back in June of 2012, Lan Chi and Joey Le have since opened Tanoshii Ramen + Bar successfully in Deep Ellum this past September.  Less than a month ago Miss Chi was introduced in Preston Center, and based on the crowds we witnessed on several occasions, the latest restaurant is a huge success. We have loved and enjoyed each concept, and Miss Chi certainly falls into those ranks.

Miss Chi is all about the Vietnamese food, which Dallas has embraced openly. The Pho phenomenon has escalated to the point where a bowl of the savory broth is simply part of the weekly rotation for many. The pho at Miss Chi will warm your cockles with its complex flavors, and tender bits of beast including rare slices of steak, tender meatballs and sultry tendon. The soup is garnished with chopped onions and herbs, and served with the usual basil, bean sprouts and wedges of lime. This is truly a delicious bowl of pho.    Continue reading
