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…


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,…

Val’s Cheesecakes

Ordered: Lemmon Avenue (lemon cheesecake) Comments: Cute little stand that sells cheesecake, in slices or little jars. There were more flavors available in jars the day I went. The cheesecake here is good – moist and creamy. It’s a little difficult to eat if you want to get all the layers into one bite. Also…

Sucre Cafe

Ordered: paradise island fruit tea, pandan waffle Comments: Not a fan of the fruit tea, it was too sweet. Waffle was great. It was freshly made and had a good amount of sweetness. This place is good for hanging out or studying.

Aloha Hawaiian Barbeque

Ordered: spam loco moco, bbq chicken Comments: Blake’s loco moco came with spam and a burger patty. This is what I would consider solid comfort food. The chicken was tender with good flavor. The cabbage was not so good; it was basically overcooked. Would come back, but only for the loco moco.


Ordered: beef bulgolgi, seafood tofu stew Comments: Solid meal for a reasonable price. Both items came as a combo, and fed two people. Hmart food court tends to have good options for Korean food.

Mango Mango

Ordered: crepe with strawberries & nutella with green tea ice cream Comments: Good place for a snack/dessert if you like desserts that are less sweet. The crepe I had was enjoyable, nothing was overly sweet, and there were plenty of strawberries inside the crepe. If you’re into Asian desserts, this place is worth a visit.

Steel City Pops

Ordered: raspberry lemon popsicle Comments: This shop on Greenville Avenue only sells popsicles: fruity and creamy ones. I’ve been here several times before, but had not yet jumped on the bandwagon until recently. At first, I thought this place was overrated. Thinking ‘how is this any different from popsicles you can get at the grocery…
