Last year, we reported on the invasion of the New York City cheese shop, Murray’s Cheese, to the great state of Texas. Perhaps some brushed it aside, after all, Murray’s decided to set up shop in the inconspicuous deli sections of Krogers across Dallas. Indeed, many people have likely passed by their cheese stands many times while shopping, assuming they were no more important than the stale donuts and Boar’s Head deli meat in their near vicinity. However, take it from me, this is one kiosk you do not want to miss. Quality cheeses flood the few tables and displays they maintain, alongside cured meats, crackers, dips, olives, jams, antipasto, dried fruit and nuts.
I am a complete sucker for the little old ladies dishing out their free samples, but never before has a woman in a hair net rocked my world as much as the day I was first taunted to try Murray’s Smoked Gouda Dip. It has found a permanent place in our grocery basket for the last few months, indeed there has probably not been a trip to the store in which it didn’t return home with us.7 Comments »
There’s a new baby in the Central Market Family.
Renovators gutted in the inside of an old Borders to make room for the newest Central Market on Preston and Royal. Mayor Mike Rawlings, reps from the Dallas Public Library, North Dallas execs, loyal neighborhood friends, and random Central Market crazies were all invited to watch the ribbon-cutting ceremony yesterday on February 14.
Today the store officially opened to the public at 8 a.m.
This month our Kid Kritic, 10-year old Elizabeth Chandler, tells you what she thinks of the new Fuzzy’s Taco Shop near Love Field. Previously, she has expressed her views on grilled cheese sandwiches and cupcakes. We’re sensing a pattern: Restaurants should note her gripes about skimping on the kid’s menu portion.
I don’t usually like Mexican food but this is great. From burritos to enchiladas to tacos. It’s a great place for a get-together or a family dinner. It’s not a fast-food place but it’s not a fancy schmancy kind of place. The menu has a wide variety, which is good for large families (4 plus). I don’t know about your family but in mine everybody likes way different things to eat. Since I usually eat from the kids plate, I’m happy to say that the food portion actually fits a child’s needs. I mean, sometimes other restaurants always give the adults the larger portions. There’s a reason everybody says: “She’s a growing child!” I’ve never heard: “She’s a growing adult!”
So the reason I’m reviewing Fuzzy’s is not because they’re new, but because there is a new location at 4740 W. Mockingbird Lane near Love Field and they take care of kids. I really like Fuzzy’s and I know you will too! Ta-Ta!!!
