Going Totally Texan and Tacos at By the Horns Brewing

  The greatest tacos ever to grace a greasy shell in DFW are almost always found inside an unsuspecting gas station. This is Texan knowledge 101. It goes in the same handbook that requires Texans to love anything dealing with longhorns, brews, queso, margaritas and recently, Topo Chico. By the Horns Brewing has not only read this handbook, they’ve turned it into doctrine. Located in Mansfield, By the Horns Brewing is the latest brainchild of Chef Jason Boso. He’s the man behind the comfort food classic concepts, Twisted Root Burger, (there’s also one next door) and the forever bustling Truck Yard. Some who’ve spent a little time chasing cheesesteaks and…

CFF Main Event Recap 2018

Patiently waiting in line to meet up with my devouring destiny, I struck up a conversation with a couple. “We look forward to this event every year,” she happily exclaimed. Though they’d been tempted to attend other grubby galas around town, The Main Event for Chefs for Farmers ALWAYS got their coins. Once again, it was money well spent. Held at the historic Dallas Heritage Village for the first time, this year appetites were allured by a variety of delicious bites but wagyu beef took center stage. Some took a traditional approach to the tender meat, but others went a cut above, like the Wagyu Beef Gyro Airbread or the…

Mix 2 parts hip hop hipster, 1 part swank then round it out with the neighborhood bar, shake it up and you’ll pour out Tiny Victories. Just a few skips from the Bishop Arts District, Tiny Victories is part of the changing face of Oak Cliff. It cannot be denied that gentrification has taken up residency in the Cliff, yet with a slight eye roll and clenched teeth, dare I say a few jewels have erected throughout the process. Tiny Victories is one of them.…

The Greek Food Festival of Dallas is a Hit Rain or Shine

Come rain or shine, people are going to get their gyros. The 62nd Greek Food Festival of Dallas was hit with a little bit of the wet stuff, but, the annual 3 day festival carried on. With their biggest turnout on Sunday, guests lined up for mouthwatering gyros, surrendered to the honeyed sweetness of loukoumades and gleefully chomped down on scrumptious souvlaki. And, don’t even talk about the spanakopita, dolmades or fried feta bites. Those are just the classics. New to this year’s festival was Galaktoboureko, a creamy custard held inside a flaky crispy phyllo pastry shell. It was a weekend of gracious grub, traditional Greek dancing and an all…
