Dallas Raw Oyster Primer

crave9by Joey Stewart

The taste of Oysters can start a lively debate, but if you are a serious bivalve eater you know that Dallas has dozens of spots serving some of the best in the world. With over three hundred varieties in the US it’s one of the most diverse foods you’ll ever eat. Do you prefer the briny taste of east coast oysters, or the sweeter ones from the west? How about oysters from the south?

That’s an old school train of thought that we don’t produce great oysters in Texas or the Southeast. Regardless, here’s a list, in no particular order, of some of the top spots in Big D to get your fix on. We won’t list any spots that “rinse” their oysters before they serve them. That’s blasphemy to oyster addicts. Every restaurant will have different varieties on different days, but we’ve listed some of their more popular and recent selections.   Continue reading

Ten Great Seafood Towers in Dallas

A 16747by Steven Doyle

Always on the hunt for something overwhelmingly delicious, a stop to study the local seafood tower scene in Dallas is a fantastic assignment that ferreted some pretty marvelous results.

A Plateau de Fruits de Mer, or the tower we are in search of is a seafood dish of raw and cooked shellfish served cold on a platter, usually on a bed of ice. The serving platter is generally held above table level with a stand and sometimes can contain multiple, elaborate tiers. This is both for visual effect, and because the shellfish are often served in the shell, or on the half shell, which causes them to take up a large area while containing only a bite or two of meat.   Continue reading

You Can Finally Get Poke in Dallas! (Don’t Read That Too Fast…)

Being a Texas gal with island roots, Poke runs in my veins (along with BBQ sauce and cream gravy, but that’s beside the point). Growing up spending summers in Maui, Poke was sold in the grocery stores and served as an appetizer at family gatherings. Now, as a food-loving adult, I enjoy how the custom poke bowl craze has given poke as personal a profile as burgers and pizza. However, the “Chipotle of raw fish” is not what Jon at TJ’s Seafood Market & Grill aimed to do with his take on the trendy dish. Jon traveled the Cali eaterways and determined that he wanted to provide a top-notch poke option to his “Best Seafood in Dallas” repertoire. And he nails it.   Continue reading
