  1. Green Papaya for lunch; not impressed with their pho (horrible beef) and the peanut sauce was too peanut buttery. Pork spring rolls were very good though. Central Market soup bar for dinner. Is it just me or have they gone way down on the quality? The poblano corn chowder is no longer silky and thick like a good chowder should be; now it’s a flavorless, watery mess; same for all of the other soups that used to be so good. As always, trade quality for profit.

  2. Zen Chow in Allen. I hope this place makes it. It’s a new mom & pop shop, so not a lot of traffic, yet. The egg rolls were just OK, but the Hunan chicken and sesame chicken more than made up for it.

  3. Had dinner with a friend Wednesday at Mesa Veracruz in Oak Cliff. Charming interior, which is surprising given the exterior. Had one of their mojitos, which was okay. Light and refreshing. For appetizers, we had the Picadas de Veracruz, with chicken added, and the Enmoladas. The masa tartlets with chicken were good, and the three different sauces on them were delicious. The Enmoladas were plain, handmade torillas smothered in the delicious mole sauce. The best way to enjoy the complex mole. For entrees, my friend had the Mole de Mama Cata, a duck leg covered in the delicious mole sauce. I had the Rabo de Res al Acuyo, braised oxtail in a hoja santa sauce. The oxtail was so tender and moist, and the sauce was delicious! Did not sample their desserts as we were full from all the delicious food. Service was very good. Will definitely go back to try the rest of the menu!

  4. Dinner at the new Capital Grille in Plano was superb. We stuck to the basics (shrimp cocktail, filet mignon, au gratin potatoes, scallops) and it was all executed perfectly. The service was excellent as well. We wanted to go back the next night but it is near impossible to get a table before 9:30 unless you make your reservation a week or so ahead of time. Our server told us that they are keeping their reservations tight for awhile until the staff is completely up to Capital Grille standards. Well, I think they are ready so open up some more reservations so we can do the pop in!!

  5. Aw Shucks Greenville, sat outside with oysters on the half shell and combo basket with fried shrimp & oysters. Washed with down with cold beer! Awesome.

  6. Woodlands on Forest, just east of Preston is always very good with great service. Have had almost everything on the menu (except steaks) and it is all very good – always. It is a real hidden jewel. Lunch today fabulous as always. I can’t recommend it enough. Not 4 star, not supposed to be, but so consistently really good.

  7. Went to Screen Door for pre-theatre dining. Really enjoyed the boiled peanut hummus and the cheese grit fritters with Mayhaw jelly as appetizers. My friend enjoyed the Shrimp & grits and I had the Oklahoma ribeye special. It was cooked to a perfect medium and the Mac n Cheese side dish made it worth the entire trip.

    Service was definitely lacking…but we made it to the Winspear on time.

  8. Mesa in Oak Cliff. Unbelievably tender, melt in your mouth, falling off the bone duck leg with addictive 20 ingredient mole sauce. The best anywhere. Wonderful ceviche and snapper saute.

  10. Princi Italia in North Dallas. Had the tagliatelle Bolognese.
    I didn’t like Kevin’s riff on the Bolognese, with the tomato chunks. The portion was very small, and the Tagliatelle overcooked and tangled. I had Kevin’s Bolognese at Salve and Ferre, and this wasn’t up to his standards. Doubt I’ll be back.

  11. Eddie’s Deli, a.k.a. know as Chicago Hot Dog, at the intersection of Abrams and Northwest Hwy. Spent $4.50 for an all-the-way dog. Worth it. Try it the next time you realize that you’ve forgotten what a great hot dog tastes like.
