Must Crave: Eats & Drinks

A Perfect Match

Like Seduction sang back in 1989, it takes two to make a thing go right. And with Far East Pizza Co., that goes for the partnership between chef Nidhi Mittal (above right) and chef Troy Gardner (above left), as well as the surprisingly harmonious blend of Indian and Italian flavors. And the story of how it came to be makes […]

All The Juicy Details

We broke our first resolution of 2021 at about 12:03 a.m. New Year’s Day. Perhaps you have better willpower. But even if you don’t, it’s OK to hit reset and make a vow right this moment to start the year off in a healthy way. Or make a commitment to begin any time this month. Pressed Juicery will give you all […]

It’s Brrrrr-ito Delivery Season

When the temperature drops, the last thing we want to do is leave the house to grab food. And that’s without even taking the pandemic into consideration. We simply hate being cold. Luckily, we’re in the Golden Age of food delivery—and virtual kitchens. The newest one in town, Savage Burrito, comes from the people behind Uncle Julio’s, using the restaurants’ […]

Cob On The Rocks, Anyone?

If you’re looking to add a little flair to the egg nog you leave for Santa this year, you need only look 1,100 miles to your south. That’s where, in Jiloepec, Mexico, Abasalo Ancestral Corn Whisky (aka El Whisky de Mexico) comes to life after a 4,000-year-old traditional process transforms corn into something magical. The process of nixtamalization brings out […]

This Place Has Balls

MANGIA! Now there’s a word we’d embroider on a red baseball cap in a heartbeat. Everything’s coming up Italian for us this week after a preview visit to the much-anticipated Eataly Dallas at NorthPark Center. We’re pretty confident you’ve heard the news, so we had no plans of actually writing a story on the place. But once we stepped inside […]

Agave Maria

Well, tequila lovers, the holidays are upon us and we’re hoping to keep our spirits bright by staying buzzed pretty much from right this minute until New Year’s Day. As anyone who reads our liquor reviews regularly, you know our first test of any spirit we try is to sip it chilled and neat or on the rocks so we […]

Take A Trip To Tulum

Don’t worry, your passport can stay right where it’s been since March. But you can treat your taste buds to an exotic culinary vacation nonetheless. Closed since the initial Dallas County lockdown eight months ago, Tulum at the Shops at Highland Park reopened for business in early November. We went to a preview dinner the night before the public was […]

Drink Your Pie, Shelby

Let’s be honest. The two things we love most about Thanksgiving are the desserts and drinking booze to deal with all the family drama. Well, this year, we probably won’t be seeing any family so we’ll be drinking purely for pleasure. And there’s a new bourbon out of Fort Worth that will give you a nice buzz and satisfy your […]

Cluckin’ Amazing

If you’re offending by chicken-themed replacements for the F word, stop reading right now. Because the recently opened Palmer’s Hot Chicken loves to throw around the word cluck like there’s no tomorrow. That’s how we knew we’d love the experience before we even set foot in the door. Not only do they have messages, such as “Wake the cluck up, […]

Ask Santa For Santo

One of the biggest benefits of staying at home the past eight months has been our booze budget. Sure, we’re probably drinking a little more than usual, but because we’re not going out to drink, we can make $50 stretch over the course of days rather than a single round of drinks for us and a couple friends. With that […]
