Thai Star

Ordered: papaya salad, tofu pad thai without egg Comments: We came here on a Friday night and it was really busy. (This Thai restaurant has the most yelp reviews in the DFW area.) The food was good and everything came out quickly, even with the crowded restaurant. I ordered vegetarian items, since I’m still trying…

Yenat Guada Ethiopian Cuisine

Ordered: vegetarian platter for two (dish comes with injera) Comments: The platter was way too much food for just two people. We could have ordered for one. The favorite was the dark one in the middle. The waitress said it was red lentils. The combination of the spices and the texture of the lentils made…


Ordered: the long walk to Nashville (spicy fried chicken with braised greens and biscuit) Comments: Was not a fan of the fried chicken. It was crispy on the outside, but overdone on the inside. Sides were okay, nothing great.

North Town Chinese Kitchen

Ordered: noodles in sichuan style sauce, cucumbers in sauce, house special spicy beef noodle soup Comments: Great new find. All the noodles here are hand made. The sichuan noodles were basically sesame noodles, but still tasty. The cucumbers in sauce were spiralized to maximize the flavor, but it made the cucumber more soggy than it…

Little Greek Fresh Grill

Ordered: hummus, gyro plate Comments:  Quick, casual place for delicious Greek food. I liked that you could sub the rice for more veggies.

Dong Hai

Ordered: thit bo luc lac, banh bot chien, rau muong Comments: This is the only place I know of that has banh bot chien in Dallas. Food was fine. Would probably only come back if we were craving banh bot chien.

Taipei Station

Ordered: leek dumplings, spicy beef noodle soup Comments: Best beef noodle soup either of us have ever had. Broth was flavorful and thick, it had the consistency of a soup that’s been simmering low and slow. Broth was a cross between bun bo hue and bo kho; it also had a slight flavoring of tomato….


Ordered: meat plate with four sides (lamb shank, hummus, tabbouleh, fattoush, cauliflower) Comments: Cafeteria-style Mediterranean food. Lamb shank was kind of tender with subtle flavor. Pita bread was fresh and soft, but a little raw on the inside. Sides were fresh and plentiful.

Sichuanese Cuisine

Ordered: dumplings, green beans, water boiled fish Comments: Dumplings were not good at all. They tasted like the frozen kind you get at the grocery store. The green beans were excellent. Good texture, good flavor, and good level of saltiness. Fish was only okay. The texture was too flaky.
