dsc00372by Steven Doyle

Troy Gardner is a clever man. You may remember chef Troy from his hotdoggin’ days when he owned Samson’s Gourmet Hot Dogs on Oak Lawn. Then he was putting out a terrific product, both for the omnivores as well as the vegans alike. Today he is running the helm at V-Eats Modern Vegan in Trinity Groves, a cozy little hot spot that is thriving selling only vegan dishes to pretty much anyone who loves food.   Continue reading

Serious Bowls Of Soup To Keep You Warm Tonight

by Steven Doyle

The weather forecast calls for the possibility of freezing rain in North Texas. Time to hunker down to a fine bowl of soup, either at home, or out and about for the brave. Either way, we’ve got you covered.

Tortilla Soup simply screams Dallas, and the king of the Tortilla Soup is none other than Dean Fearing who picked up the task while serving as Mess Sergeant at The Mansion on Turtle Creek.  We have witnessed the making of this soup, and let’s just say it is far easier to mosey into the Ritz-Carlton than actually produce the soup yourself. However, if you wish to attempt the recipe, we list it at the bottom of this article.

A Trompo Taco with Benefits

fox1by Steven Doyle

There are times when I feel this national taco obsession might be a bit out of control. It is just then that happenstance smacks me in the grill with a killer version of the street meat. This was the case yesterday as I meandered down Harry Hines.

There is actually no excuse to be on Harry Hines unless you are looking for a good price on a dozen cheap sunglasses, a used tire on the DL, or trying to make your way from north to south very quickly. Or if you are in need of a taco. The latter was the case yesterday and I found a nice one at this bizarre gas station that is really just a front for a lavenderia.   Continue reading

Burger of the Day: Half Pound Burger at Lee Harvey’s

leeharvey2by Steven Doyle

There is a place, a hidden place, where you can find cold beer, great burgers and incredible live music. This is the place many know as Lee Harvey’s. In its own compound surrounded by barbed wire and a double gate to prevent happy pets from either getting in, or escaping, you will find nothing but great camaraderie and smiles at this hot spot in the Cedars area of Dallas.

The food at Lee Harvey’s is nothing short of splendid, and is made out of a kitchen  much smaller than your own at home. The food comes out quickly and perfect every time for a place with such adversity as this small workspace. But that is the only thing small about the bar. The burgers are enormous, clocking in at a half pound and topped with as many ingredients as you might care to savor. The meat is juicy and hand formed, and even though the bun is sturdy the juices make fast play with your ability to manage this monster.   Continue reading
