Each year I typically spend months working up to a few million Scoville units’ worth of packing heat. Then the big survival test comes at ZestFest, the largest gathering of spicy foods and spicy foods aficionados of the year. Aisle after aisle of hotness purveyors offered samples at the 10th annual expo, held this past weekend at the expansive Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas.

That ventures well past the Scotch Bonnet and Habanero territory, and can be quite maddening on the palate. Continue reading
A few weeks back we mentioned that the Snookies Bar and Grill in Carrollton would soon be replaced with a Liberty Burger. However the Oak Lawn location in Dallas is bustling along at break-neck speeds, and the mere mention of the restaurant-bar made us lose control recently and we had to pay our respects.
The chicken fried steak has always been a mainstay at Snookies, and we heard legend of the chicken wings, so that is what we ordered. Continue reading
