An observant Disher reports that Chow Thai Pacific Rim at Parker and the Tollway has been “gutted and will be turned in to a new restaurant called “Chow,” according to the sign in the window.” It will serve Asian street food.1 Comment »
This just in from the Ask and You Shall Receive Department. Remember the other day when we were wished someone would get their foodie act together and literally take it on the road? You know, food trucks with more than prepared sandwiches and bananas. Good funky food delivered to a corner near you. I just got a quick note from Michael Siegel who says:
I just saw your blog posting about food trucks – your timing is impeccable. I am launching a truck at the end of this month called Green House. The truck is ready to roll out, and we are just finishing up with all regulations with the city. The truck features high quality ingredients and cooking from chef Ben Hutchison (formerly of Food Company).The first truck will be serving the downtown area.
Ben Johnson Hutchison is going to be coming to St. Paul and Ross? That is the best news I’ve heard since this! He’ll be a wizard on wheels! Wait, did Siegel say “first” truck? This is good news. He promises to send more details and pictures later today.17 Comments »
Our February issue hits the newsstands tomorrow but the web team is busy getting the cover story, “The Best Barbecue in Dallas”, uploaded to our website. Hopefully later today. The feature is written by Daniel Vaughn, the self-described BBQ Snob, and a fanatic who charts his barbecue discoveries on his Full Custom Gospel BBQ. So far he has reviewed 249 joints and has 17 more in the works. He also tells me: “As of last evening, I have officially visited every joint in DFW that I am aware of, excluding multiple chain locations. I need a salad.”
We asked Mr. BBQ Snob to narrow his favorites down to 16. The proposal was tortuous for him. Today, we will reveal his top spot and announce the winner of our Guess the Top Spot contest. Daniel will be joining us here and we look forward to many SideDish discussions on barbecue. Salads are for sissies.10 Comments »
