The Biscuit Bar Bedazzles with Buttery Biscuits

The Biscuit Bar – 5 Stars Few things in this edible existence are worse than biting into a dry biscuit. You will require no less than a gallon of water to wash down the unpleasantness. But, when a biscuit is buttery and soft with just the right amount of crispness, then you have found a beautiful, beautiful biscuit and chances are, you’re eating it at The Biscuit Bar. A place that serves biscuits, tots, and alcohol on tap sounds too deliciously carby and boozy to be true. But, alas it is. Located inside The Boardwalk at Granite Park in Plano, owners Jake and Janie Burkett are serving up comfort one…

7 Reason’s Eating at Edith’s French Cafe is Essential

Whiskey Cake Comes to Irving

    There’s whiskey and there’s cake. The name of this restaurant alone brings joy to my taste buds. Now, Whiskey Cake is spreading that whiskey soaked joy to Irving. The eatery recently opened their sixth location, finally providing the folks of Las Colinas with a little taste. With their latest location, you can still expect to be whisked away by their ever growing whiskey selection. For the grubbers that know, their deviled eggs are still a staple, with the ingredients changing often. One day their filled with smoked salmon, another topped off with fried chicken skin. It’s rather remarkable to know that a deviled egg can be so damn…

Whisked Away at Whisk Crepes Cafe

Whisk Crepes Cafe – 4.5 Stars My first experience with crepes came by way of the 24 hour Dallas eatery, Buzzbrews and their Flying Chicken Crepe. Ideal for a first time “creper”, it is a mixture of fresh spinach, tomato, onion and portabella mushrooms pan sautéed with marinated grilled chicken, rolled into a homemade crepe with mozzarella cheese, then topped off with poblano cream sauce. Eventually my infatuation with this crepe ran its course. In search of another crepe experience, I was none too thrilled about the eggy or sugar filled small thin pancakes that so often appeared on breakfast and brunch menus. And so, the search ended. Then a…

Take a roll in sugar with the Bananas Foster French Toast, which is made with…

Brunch at Uptown Dallas’ Eastwoods.

Where to find them– 3407 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75204 Phone– ​(469) 802-6664 That whole parking thing– They do provide free valet, so that’s nice. You’ll probably want to use that because street parking is pretty tight round these parts.
