Palmieri Cafe – Dallas, TX

Hey foodies! Last Saturday I attended the grand opening of Palmieri Cafe at The Market at the Dallas Farmers Market. The cafe’s owner, Corrado Palmieri, has been selling his pastries and pour-over coffees in front of the cafe while it is under construction. This place is special. Not just because of the great pastries and espresso,…

Jarams Donuts – Dallas, TX

Word on the street is Jarams Donuts has redefined donuts. So camera in hand, I headed over to the the shop. The place is small, bright and clean. They offer a variety of donuts. What I wanted to try was one their famous croissant donuts. Yep, you read that right! A croissant AND a donut…

Pecan Lodge – Dallas, TX

I was craving some BBQ, so on a whim I phoned my mother and asked her to join me for a late lunch at Pecan Lodge. Being a foodie herself, my mother jumped on the web to read about PL. As soon as she got in the car she told me that I needed a back-up…

Velvet Taco – Dallas, TX

The taco trek continues. A couple of Saturdays ago my friends and I decided to eat tacos for every meal. Yep, every meal. We started with breakfast tacos at La Popular Tamale House (see post here.) Then, we headed to Velvet Taco on N. Henderson Avenue. The line was out the door but moved along…

La Popular Tamale House – Dallas, TX

Three girls, one goal: eat tacos for every meal. Goal met. We started our taco trek at The Market at Dallas Farmers Market. If you haven’t been to The Market you need to give it a try. It is a ginormous indoor food hall including restaurants, food vendors and shopping. We bellied up to La Popular…

Omni Dallas Hotel – Dallas, TX

The Omni Dallas has been on my bucket list for awhile. So to say I was excited for my weekend staycation was an understatement. I was in room 1733 on the 17 floor. The views from the floor-to-ceilings windows of downtown were quite impressive, especially as the sun went down. The room was modern and comfortable….

Texas Spice – Dallas, TX

I love a staycation. L-O-V-E. I recently staycayed at The Omni Dallas Hotel. Check out the hotel review here. For breakfast I went downstairs to Texas Spice. The decor is really refreshing. I would call it repurposed Texana. Upscale rustic. I felt very welcomed and comfy. There is a great patio with plenty of seating…

BGR The Burger Joint – Dallas, TX

  Recently, I was invited to try BGR The Burger Joint.  If a great burger is what you are after this is the place.  It is not a one-burger-fits-all joint. There is a burger for every taste. The Burger is prime, dry-aged beef grilled over a flame.  It is served on a fresh-baked brioche bun made locally…

Coolhaus Gourmet Ice Cream – Dallas, TX

This is my first review of Coolhaus but not my first visit.  I visit Coolhaus EVERY time I go to Klyde Warren Park.  Coolhaus’ cookie and ice cream choices are CRAZY.  It is like they have a pair of dice with their favorite foods on them.  They roll the dice and BOOM! there is the next ice…

HG SPLY Co. – Dallas, TX

A couple of weeks ago I reviewed Remedy.  Later, I found out the owners of Remedy also owned HG SPLY Co.  Well, if HG SPLY Co. was half as good as Remedy, I had to try it.  It did not disappoint.  A friend and I ventured out on a drizzly Halloween afternoon for lunch.  We had a short…

Val’s Cheesecakes – Dallas, TX (Part Two)

I fell in love tonight.  His name is Val.  Yes, Val of Val’s Cheesecakes.  Here’s the story.  I was checking Instagram and saw that Val’s was featuring Ginger Man cheesecake slices tonight.  I messaged to see if there were any slices left.  Val responded that there were.  I headed down the DNT to claim my…
