Saker går bättre med Coke!
According to FreeTranslation.com that is Swedish for “Things Go Better with Coke,” a Coca-Cola slogan from the distant past. I am not sure if it ever reached Sweden, in part because the Swedes have their own brown soft drink JulMust. It is not a straight cola, tasting like carbonated caramel, but it fulfills the same role. It must be therapeutic as the side label lists its ingredients as “Filtered carbonated water, sugar, caramel color, flavors produced by natural hops and malt (produced from barley), citric acid, natural and artificial flavors, sodium benzoate (preservative)”. I can assure you that it tastes as good as it sounds. Its $2.25 (with 10cents back on the bottle if you drive to Michigan). If you fancy trying this unusual beverage, and a host of other Scandinavian delicacies, put on your best Viking helmet, re-read chapter one of Pillaging for Dummies and head to The Wooden Spoon in East Plano.

Teresa Gubbins has something to say about everything. Today she has something to say about Bliss Raw Café and Elixir Bar in Dallas. I have not been to Bliss, well the restaurant anyway, but I hear that the regulars are, well, quite regular.1 Comment »
Last night, I attended the Fair Food and Wine event, sponsored by Texas Monthly. There were corn dogs on the invitation, so naturally, I had my heart set on eating a corn dog, and trying a few other fried things too. No such luck. There was food, but it was only food that is being sold in the General Store Food and Fiber Pavilion during the fair (all Texas made products, of course). We met a few nice people and got a free Western photo, which was probably better than fried butter, after all (aww).1 Comment »
I’m stuck at home in my little glass house. I see a few pebbles on the floor and I think I will toss them.
I just scanned through the Dallas Observer’s 2009 Best of Dallas® Food list. It reminds me of that Who song. What is it, Kirk? Something about the new boss and the old boss? YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Bomp, bomp, bomp. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
Dave Fairies, I have a quick question: Does the Observer repeat “Bests” if, when the next year rolls around, no one else fills the category as “Better®?” (That’s mine, dude.) This is a serious question and I ask it because I have to deal with the beast of ‘Bests” and understand the difficulty at uncovering them. So, Mr. Fairies, do you roll over “Bests” from year to year by moving them into different categories or because they are the “Best” of their original category? Let’s go through the list together and see. Jump with me. It’s not far. Continue reading "Dallas Observer 2009 Best of Dallas® Food List: What do You Think?"17 Comments »
