Wabi House

Ordered: veggie ramen Comments: Good veggie option. Didn’t feel deprived at all from ordering the veggie ramen. You get a vegetable based broth, noodles and plenty of vegetables. The broth was flavorful. Noodles had a good chew. And the vegetables varied in textures and flavors.

Hopdoddy

Ordered: La Bandita burger made vegan, Impossible burger made vegan Comments: After watching “What the Health” (documentary), I’ve been trying more vegetarian/vegan options. We’d been to hopdoddy before, but hadn’t tried the veggie burgers yet. La bandita at hopdoddy is a black bean based burger. It was okay. The patty didn’t really hold together well….

Jarams Donuts

Ordered: creme brulee donut, strawberries & cream donut Comments: Fancy donuts offered here. They have plain ones as well. The creme brulee had a crispy shell, and tasted like burnt sugar, as expected. The strawberries & cream is strawberries with cream cheese. The cream cheese was a good option for balancing the sweetness of the…

Matcha Love

Ordered: black sesame frozen yogurt Comments: The frozen yogurt had a firmer consistency than other froyos, almost as solid as custard, that made it more enjoyable. The black sesame flavor was nutty, similar to a diluted peanut butter flavor. Servings here are small. (Cup only partially filled.)

Arepa TX

Ordered: chipotle chicken arepa, brisket & chimichurri arepa, yuca fries Comments: Good arepas. Texture of the corn cake was crispy. The meat fillings were flavorful.

King’s Noodle

Ordered: steamed dumplings, beef noodle soup Comments: The food is good here, but I prefer the food at Taipei Station. The food concept is similar, but King’s Noodle is not as flavorful.  

Trompo

Ordered: trompo, bistec tacos Comments: Basically a food truck atmosphere from a brick and mortar taco restaurant. No nonsense street tacos with limited seating. The trompo taco was better. The meat had a good amount of fat and flavor. It was really crowded when we came. (Bon Appetit had recently named this place “the best…

SusieCakes

Ordered: mini cupcakes Comments: Cake was dry except for the chocolate flavor. Might have been because we waited a day to eat the rest of the cupcakes. The icing had a good amount of sweetness. The overall flavor was good, but it seems like the cupcakes need to be consumed the day of. I would…

Off Site Kitchen

Ordered: Do it Murph-Style burger, cheese fries Comments: We came here to try the burgers, thinking they would be comparable to other well-known burger restaurants in Dallas (Shake Shack, Smashburger, etc.). Off site kitchen is better. They pay attention to small details, like toasting the inside as well as the outside of the bun. Also,…
