I’ve been on a Tei-An kick lately. As the weather keeps getting colder/crazier, it makes sense to pop in and drink a hot, steaming bowl of soup layered with handmade soba. Just thinking about it makes my stomach feel all warm and fuzzy. I can feel my sinuses clearing.
Tei-An’s fine dining, Zen-of-an-atmosphere can give off a I’m-too-expensive-for-you attitude. Matt Shelley never walked into Tei-An until three weeks ago, thinking it was out of his price range. He’s been working in the Arts District for the last five years, too. After he discovered the $10 bowl of tonkotsu ramen, he’s been hooked ever since. That man has had Tei-An three times already.
Teiichi “Teach” Sakurai’s noodle heaven is amazingly affordable, contrary to popular belief. It’s easy to go in, order a dish for less than $10, and leave wallet-happy. It’s true. I’ve scrutizined the menu, backwards and forwards. Here are four dishes to prove it.Full Story
Friends and neighbors—especially those with XY chromosomes—it’s time to get off your bean bag chair and start dialing the tellyphone.Full Story
Alright. It’s that time of the year again—when flowers, hearts, chocolates, and all that other ooey-gooey stuff that grinches like me try to pretend don’t exist. But it does.
So, without further ado, I’m presenting you the list of places to book your V-Day dinner. More menus will flood my inbox soon, so fret not. You’ll have plenty of options within the next two weeks. Start booking those places now, though. I hear The Mansion is already almost full. Dang. Better get on it. Lock it down, boys. Lock it down.Full Story
Now that you’re fat and full of Christmas happiness, it’s time to make those New Year’s reservations. And resolutions.
But, first and foremost, pick up the phone and dial those tellynumbers. Because New Year’s Eve means celebrating, which means eating out. And having a good time. And all that good stuff.
Everyone who knows me (especially D Magazine people who observe my snacking habits like a zoo animal. Ahem.) know that I’m not a fine-dining person. I love fine-dining, sure. But in my element, I am a cheap eater. I was born on a budget, I live on a budget, and I like to save money like it’s nobody’s business. Some may even describe it as a fault.
A good meal under $10 can make me the happiest person alive.Full Story

Napa Valley is, surprisingly, not all about Michelin star restaurants. There are cheap eats, too. Good ones. It’s possible to visit Napa Valley even if you aren’t the richest cat in the litter.Full Story
To say I love stuffing is to be polite in front of strangers. My infatuation with stuffing (or “dressing” if you’re fancy) runs deeper than allegiances to blood or country. I know what you’re probably thinking: “Yeah right, Jake. A side that consists of bread crumbs, onion, celery, salt, pepper, and other spices is so […]Full Story
Thanksgiving is 10 days away. That’s scary. After Thanksgiving, there’s only Christmas to look forward to, then New Year’s, and then it’s all over. The holiday season is done. No more candy canes, no more cookies with red and green icing. Time to hyperventilate a little. Or, if you’re like me, pretend life is wonderful […]Full Story

Ever since I was a small child with an extra-large head, I’ve always loved muffins. In the chilly months of fall and winter, a fluffy muffin is a comforting accompaniment to a cup of coffee, hot tea, or a fresh, tall glass of orange juice. It’s filling, delicious, and makes the perfect sidekick to almost […]Full Story
Here on SideDish, we talk about the best and the worst State Fair of Texas foods, but we never talk about those weird in-betweens. You’ve got to admit there’s a lot of junk at the fair every year. You only have so many coupons, a little amount of stomach space, and so much time. You […]Full Story
Even when you thought the endless awards and endless praise for John Tesar and Stephan Pyles would never stop this year—you were right. It doesn’t. Out of Esquire‘s list of 18 Best New Restaurants in 2013 that was released today, two of them are Dallas restaurants. Now, whether or not you’re a fan of […]Full Story
Good day to all you friedaholics. Ready to binge? Tomorrow, my little friends and enemies, is the first day of the State Fair of Texas. If you didn’t know this already, you need to get your arteries checked. Make sure they’re squeaky clean before you fill them with grease, grease, and more grease! If you […]Full Story
It’s the first week of school, and every parent out there is clogging up my Facebook feed with cute photos of their adorable offsprings wearing their adorable backpacks. Thanks, moms and dads. My productivity level has gone way down. Thanks. Bento boxes, which have been trending for quite some time, are a pretty good way […]Full Story
Not a lot of people share my last name. Dablo is technically Filipino, but I am half-Hispanic (dad) and half-white (mom). I grew up in Dallas, but I’ve made many family trips down to Galveston in the past, where my dad grew up and spoke Spanish in his house. Unfortunately, I never learned to speak […]Full Story
Here’s the deal. You’re moving to a private island with Kathy Ireland, Zac Efron, a couple miniature horses and a chef who can only cook one thing. What’s it going to be? Well, obviously, as you probably know from the title of this post, it’s pizza. It’s an ubiquitous people pleaser. For centuries it has […]Full Story
Ramen originated in China, then traveled to Japan in the early 1900s, where shotgun shops sprang up to serve businessmen and women on their lunch breaks. Whether in summer or winter, the Japanese stood at counters with their mouths hovering over bowls of piping hot soup. North Texas, then, is about 100 years behind the […]Full Story
