A little gem in a strip tucked beside a busy road. A cute shop that sells bites from Korea. They have foods that are authentic and tasty. It is called Korean Street Eats. The menu is full of iconic sandwiches, rice bowls like kimchi fried rice, kimbap, fried street bites, and so much more.
Kurobuta: Bite from Korea
I love supporting local businesses as they help the economy. I recently came across this cute restaurant in my area owned by a local family that served up amazing ramen and comfort Asian food. This treasure was called Kurobuta and located in Carrollton, Texas. You can tell that you have arrived at the restaurant by the Japanese style awning if you have never been here before.
Snooze A.M. Eatery: Breakfast Winner!
Breakfast is one of the key meals of the day. However, to only serve breakfast foods as a restaurant then you better have amazing breakfast dishes. Snooze A.M. Eatery in Dallas is just that kind of restaurant.
Sweet Firefly Gourmet Ice Cream: A Sweet Treat To Beat The Heat
With the heat wave still prominent in Texas, ice cream is the best treat to beat the heat. I recently discovered a new sweet haven for ice cream thanks to a friend that introduced me to Sweet Firefly Gourmet Ice Cream.
La Casita Bakeshop: Masters of the Puff
Tucked away in a strip mall in Richardson, there is a bakery that has delicious creations. Creations come in different forms of pastry dough such as puff and normal dough. The treats are flavored with both savory and sweet tasting that can satisfy any palate. This magical shop is called La Casita Bakeshop, and you can only get treats on certain days and times.
Earnest Donuts: Not Your Standard Donut
I am not the biggest lover of donuts. I love the classic cinnamon, sprinkles, or chocolate. I am picky. The best is when they come from a local place like the corner shop that is still run by the same family for generations. However, I decided to venture a little further from my local corner shop on my most recent donut hunt.
Ista Indian: Butter Chicken Dreams
I am a huge fan of Butter Chicken. I could eat a whole pot by myself if no one was looking. I got hooked on the stuff in high school when my friend’s mom made it. However, I have no talent when it comes to trying to cook Indian food (tips would be appreciated). That is why I love finding good Indian food within the local community of Dallas. Here is a restaurant you need to add to your night-out list.
Andy’s Frozen Custard: Cold Sweet Treat
I love a good ice cream. Andy’s Frozen Custard was a staple that my family had to visit when I was living in Arkansas. I was so happy to find this brand coming to Dallas and opening shops all over the city. They have powerful flavor combinations created from their two signature flavor Vanilla and Chocolate along with their thousand and one toppings.
Bisous Bisous Pâtisserie: Piece of Paris in Dallas, Texas
I recently found a little piece of France in Downtown Dallas. The cute little wicker tables on the sidewalk are an iconic reference to the little tables in Paris. But the flash back to Paris is not the only reason I traveled to Downtown, I actually was here for the sweet delicious treats.
Bisous Bisous Pâtesserie has an arrangement of French baked goods. That means delicious macaroons, tarts, cakes, and croissants. They also serve delicious cafe drinks to go with your sweet treat. An unique feature of the shop is that they also offer cooking classes so you can learn how to make their delicious treats. The photos on Instagram looked so amazing. So me and a friend got a round of coffee and a tray of delicious treats to dine on.
Learning About A Death-Row Detective
I have lived in Texas for most of life. Texas has prided itself on a strict conservative values. When it comes to justice system that can mean harsh punishments. In the state of Texas, a guilty man can be sentenced to death. Texas is not the only state in the United States, but it is important to the the setting of this story. In a recent episode on the Economist, they did a special feature on a private detective responsible for helping overturn death penalty cases in Texas. With the title of Lifesaver, you know it was going to be an interesting story.
