Dishers, where did you dine and what did you eat this week? Here is what you reported last week.
Got our return and decided to splurge on an old family favorite, Kobe Steaks in Addison. Easily our favorite hibachi joint, with fried rice to shame all others (I always get two orders). My wife and I have been going for almost 10 years now, since long before we were married, and no matter how long the gap between visits, the hosts always remember our name.
Sadly the rest of the return is going toward debt – but only 3 more months and we’re free!
I think the best thing all week has been my trip down the street to the Ssham Korean bbq truck.
Went to try The Commissary now that Tesar has left. The Farmer Burger and the Popular Demand (chicken sandwich) were great! Really liked the new somm. The tap wine was a great deal for the price. Service was good and the food wait time quick. Going back on Sunday to check out their new brunch menu i just saw announced. David is doing some good things with the place.
I also went to Commissary and it was amazingl. I know you can’t say much about a chicken sandwich… but it was pretty much the best chicken sandwich I have ever eaten. Everything was topnotch. My wife loved her burger as well. We will definitely be back.
Went to Jonathan’s about a week back. Probably the worst restaurant experience I have had in Dallas since moving here 6 years ago. And if food is left waiting to be run for 20 minutes after waiting 40 minutes for it.. don’t bring me the cold food… just explain the situation, say you will remedy it, and bring hot plates. When you screw up… just be honest. Don’t feed your patron lies. You never know what your customer has seen or heard. Spent two hours to leave 100% hungry.
Also Olive Garden. Two warm breadsticks. They were good.
CampO on Saturday – Got Beet Salad with (tangy) Horseradish Sauce (of all things) upon the recommendation of the barkeep, amazing. Absolutely, lick your plate delicious. Beet are a more recently acquired taste but all of the suddenly I totally understand the point of Borscht. It’s not nostalgic peasant food, it can be actually delicious! Also get the Chorizo braised in Red Wine and try their Buffalo (Trace) in the Woods cocktail. Memorable plates every time my wife and I go!
Nosh on Thursday – Get Nosh’s “Stacked Kobe Burger” and ignore the $14 price tag. One bite and church bells rung. Angels sang. I gave my wife a bite and and she started crying. I’ve had great “chef-elevated” burgers at NST, R+D and Commissary but this one was transforming.
Gingerbread Ice Cream at The Mansion on Turtle Creek

@Christopher – seconded on that Nosh Burger. It’s revelatory. The only burger in town I like better is the Stodg burger at The Porch … and it’s a close race.
J.B., I love you.
Had dinner at CampO. Every bite of every duck fat brushed bread, charcuterie and cheese platter, and dish was perfect. perfect! How do we get that man on the James Beard radar? No seriously, how?
Was extremely happy with Sissy’s as well. I’ll admit I wasn’t over the top about the concept as I’m all for healthy and proportion control but even the fried chicken didn’t make me feel (too) guilty. The fried items were somehow light and almost fluffy! Deviled eggs were the best I’ve ever had.
Did not know about the half priced apps at Nosh for happy hour! Pleasantly surprised about that as we were meeting a vendor there and ordered damn near everything on the top half of the menu. Me likey.
Finally made it to Oak. Worth checking out. The decor is stylish without being stuffy. The noise level is energetic without being overbearing. All of the food we tried was quite good. I had the monkfish…not a morsel left on the plate. The service was friendly without being too personal. A nice experience.
How could I forget… also dined at Abacus… it was the best it’s ever been. Had more vendors to entertain… and they were blown away. Love when a favorite restaurant can WOW your out of town (country) guests!
Best Thai Signature on Frankford. Their Pad Kee Mow is to die for. And, half price bottles of wine on Tuesday.
Private Social last Friday night was one of the best experiences I’ve had in a long time. I tasted the cauliflower soup which was so simple – but it was punctuated by salty caviar, roasted potatoes and fried beet chips. The Thai lettuce wraps have like, 14 different things to add to the lettuce and chicken, My fave was these crazy hot pickled thai chilis that I deeply regretted the next day, but they were delish! The duck fat fried chicken was crazy good. It must have been marinated in some indianish spices before it was fried because the flavor was so dang good. Can’t put my finger on the taste. Anyway, the monk fish was great and the desserts were too, though I can’t recall what they were. I cannot wait to go back.
DISH, dinner. A happening spot that rocks with vibe, noise, fashion of the moment, and youthful energy. Large menu with some carryover from Amuse. Food was very well prepared, with generous portions and artistic plating. Timely service; check backs by the waiter and Manager. Not on the top of the “go back soon” list, but definitely not off the list.
Bolsa Mercado for lunch and provisions. Delicious, Prosciutto cheese and salad panini. Excellent double espresso macchiato.
Pepe & Mito’s Cafe on Elm Street in Deep Ellum for “Mex-Tex”. Right ~ Mex-Tex. Not, Tex-Mex. Couldn’t resist going there after seeing them on “Triple D”. Guy Fieri really got this one right.
Wonderful Albondigas soup, cheese enchiladas with guacamole and extra onions and cilantro and, a terrific pork tamale with the MOST INCREDIBLE green sauce!
Pecan Lodge in Shed 2 for amazing fatty Wagyu brisket. Melted in my mouth! And, they finally have cole slaw, now.
Shushiism on Hebron Parkway in Carrollton for genuine, authentic Japanese (handmade on site) ramen noodle soup with tonkotsu. Excellent, authentic Japanese food served with very warm and welcoming service.
All the Japanese specialties are served here. From sushi to tempura and everything in between. I only wish they were closer to me.
The Dames d’Escoffiers Raiser Grazer on Sunday where the wine and alcoholic beverages were free-flowing and the food top notch. Incredible! Loved every minute.
Made the trip to the milk and honey Co. it was fantastic. We had eaten at sissy’s the week before and it was very good as well. The milk and honey Co. had the best fried chicken I Have ever eaten in my life. My husband had a 7 course tasting and was food you would find in any of the top restaurants in the Texas Manet even the country but AWESOME FRIED CHICKEN!!
We also drive out tI milk and honey on Thursday and I agree, it truly is a some of the best fried chicken/food I have had in a while. We also went to smoke last weekend and it was fantastic as well. I love the vibe in there
Yes, milk and honey is delicious and it’s a cool story. The wood shed was pretty outstanding, we went with a bunch of us and it was a lot of fun. Killer food
Dinner at NHS Tavern. Other than the smoked salmon deviled eggs appetizer and side of fries (both of which were great), food as average at best. Corvina, while flavorful, was very dry. Ribs seemed to be cooked improperly (texture was more akin to a honey-baked ham). I think Nosh or Hillstone are much better for the price.
Sissy’s – way over priced and fried chicken was too salty. Great deviled eggs!
Trulucks – everything was delicious. Esp. miso sea bass and crab mac and cheese
Pho is for Lovers – absolutely enjoyed Korean BBq Banh Mi and Grilled Pork Banh Mi Sandwich, crispy fried egg rolls with fish sauce.
Taco Bell – Viva Dorito Tacos!
Kaze Japanese on Greenville – Love the teriyaki salmon and bibimbap stone bowl.
