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…

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….

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.

Rapscallion

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.

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. The size of each arepa is comparable to a small sandwich. The chimichurri sauce was a welcome addition of acid to the beef. Yuca fries were similar to regular potato…

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.
