All I want for Christmas is...soup.

After having several chilly, dreary days, all I really want to think about eating is SOUP. I've compiled a quick list of some of my favorite soups in DFW: Check 'em out and please comment with more suggestions!

1. Roasted jalapeno cream soup at Rockfish(seen below in photo). This creamy, spicy soup serves up a perfect mix of heat and flavor.

 2. An old favorite of mine that you can find all over the country is Panera's Broccoli Cheddar soup: Chopped broccoli, shredded carrot and select seasonings simmered in a velvety cheese sauce.

3. Sip & Savor: Butternut Squash Soup: fresh, crisp butternut squash flavor blended with a touch of ginger.

4. the Smiling Moose: Spicy Chicken Enchilada - this stuff isn't for the weak of palate, it is Spicy for real. Nasal dripping, eye watering spicy. But worth it, for the flavor.

5. Pho que huong:Vietnamese beef noodle soup (huge serving for only 6 bucks) is flavorful, comfort-inspiring, and warming from head to toe. I love this stuff even though I make a huge mess of myself eating it.

6. Reata:Jalapeno and Cilantro Soup. Think chicken tortilla soup, but fancier and with authentic, creative flair.  And vegetarian friendly, I believe. 

7. Turtle Soup at Perry's Steakhouse & Grille: creamy, delicious, and made from Louisiana snapping turtle.  Pretty cool, huh?

8. Mushroom Soup at the Grape: It's legendary and rightfully so.  Perfect blend of butter, white wine, mushrooms, onions, and cream. 

9. French Onion soup at Kenny's wood fired grill: the best part is the cheese.  Mmmmmm.

10. The Old warsaw Brie Soup: It's awesome. I really don't know what else to say about it. Brie cheese speaks for itself. :)

11. Wonton Noodle soup at First Chinese BBQ: Add chili oil for a spicy treat.

12. Tomato Bisque at Hattie's:  with a mini grilled cheese garnish! Perfection in a bowl!

13. Andiamo Lobster bisque: with chunks of lobster and crab! The only better one I've had is coming up next in #14:

14. Pappas bros' Lobster bisque: They don't skimp on lobster, you get a huge serving of it, and the overall flavor just exudes seafood greatness.  My favorite lobster bisque thus far in life.

15. Clam Chowder at Oceanaire: I'm not normally a huge clam chowder fan, but it's pretty much world-famous at the Oceanaire, so I had to indulge.  That little cup of soup won me over. It was chock-full of clams that were fresh and not too fish-y like the type I've had at other "seafood" restaurants.  Good, creamy chowder. 

16. Tom yum at Best Thai: Authentic, spicy, healthy. Happiness in a bowl, prettymuch. 

18. Seafood soup at Mesa: Rich with clams, mussels, shrimp and crab.  Pretty amazing stuff. 

Welp, friends, now that I'm sufficiently hungry again, it's time to venture out and find some more great Dalllas soups to brag about for next time. 

Peace, Love, and Queso.

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to
