Making Dallas Even Better

Dallas is Officially Bizarre: Recap of Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre Foods America: Dallas Episode

Austin may be weird, but thanks to Bizarre Foods America host Andrew Zimmern Dallas is now officially bizarre. Last night, the show featured a Dallas-Fort Worth edition and Zimmern explored  a lot of funky places. I think Zimmern’s top five favorite moments countdown will surprise you.  What does he pick as the most emblematic bizarre food  experience in our area? See it for yourself.

    he is outside Russian Banya in Carrollton….and he talks about Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington. How about some respect and a shout-out to the big C?


    That’s cool!

    At the beginning of the show, Andrew acknowledged that because so many cities encompass DFW, any references to particular cities in the entire DFW metroplex would simply be addressed as, Dallas.

    This is a perfect tie-in for my “Make Dallas Funky” campaign.

    Been to the Russian Banya and it is hilarious. It is like you walked into Russia. They have a pastry there called a “syrniki” that I think is one of the best dessert items around, even though I think they call it an entree which makes it even better.

    What’s so bizarre about tacos and barbecue?

    Russian Banya. Perfect Choice! It’s so not typical Dallas. Whenever we get tired of the same cookie cutter bar of the month, high end spas or restaurants, we always try to find something “different”. Tried this a few years ago and it has been on the rotation now. Not an every week place for us by any means, but a fun change of pace place. You really feel like you are in Russia. Don’t take any of your uppity friends. They won’t get it or be able to handle it and would probably ruin the experience for you as well.

    Missed this show, but have set up to tape it. We love Bizarre Foods. Wish I had known when he was in town. Would have been exciting to meet him.
