In a few months, D Magazine is moving downtown. While this is very exciting news, we’ve all been a little sad about leaving our favorite lunch (and happy hour) spots behind, like Al Biernat’s, La Duni, and Mint.
This is all to say that when I was looking for my $5 lunch, I decided on Kuai Dumplings & Soups partly because of their downtown location. The restaurant is just a short walk from our new building, so I thought I would scope out a future lunch spot. I’ve also been craving dumplings lately and had heard pretty good things about theirs.
The dumplings were good. Here is a picture of the 8 pack of pork dumplings my friend ordered. They were hot, soft, and the pork filling had a nice bite of ginger. They cost $5.50. This is what I should have ordered. Jump for what I had (insert ominous sound here).16 Comments »
We’ve cut back on posting people’s pleas for help because they never report back. We all give our best and they don’t even bother to send a thank you. These two folks promised they would send us details if we helped them. Here they go:
I’m throwing a party for around 90-100 on a Friday night but trying to keep the budget around $6k. Want no further south than nw hwy and will go north to 121 off of the tollway. Most of the guests are staying at the Marriot Legacy. Don’t mind park and preston in plano either. This is for a Friday night dinner of a Bar Mitzvah weekend.
And this gal:
Hey, I need a place with a patio, not Fearing’s maybe Dragonfly, that isn’t too upscale or prissy.
Help at will.13 Comments »
