Fish Bowl Poké Swims Into Frisco




Unless you've been hiding under a seashell lately (hey, I wouldn't blame you, I love the ocean), you know that poké is all the rage in DFW right now.

While the raw fish dish is trendy locally, they've been eating it this way in Hawaii for decades. Pronounced POH-keh, if you're eating it for the first time, try and think of it as sort of a deconstructed sushi roll. Simply, poké is raw fish, cubed, and served in a bowl, either plain or over rice. The newest wave of poké craze has introduced a whole number of fixings that allow you to customize your bowl to fit your fancy. Sauce = Delia approved.

Thus far I've tried around 5 DFW poké concepts, but Frisco's new Fish Bowl Poké stands out to me for a few different reasons.

1. The space is gorgeous. What once was a nail salon is now an inviting, vibrant space that makes me feel good about eating here. I'm talking total transformation.  Enter and go to the right, where you'll see the stunning chalkboard menu along the wall. This will be your guide for how-to-build-the perfect-poké-bowl.




2. Next up: ease of ordering. The user-friendly kiosks allow you to take matters, literally, into your own hands. Choose your bowl size, fish preferences, base (rice, salad, or mix of both), toppings, and then sauce. They swipe to pay and voila - that's it. Introverts, rejoice! We can do this with minimal human interaction. But if you need guidance and a friendly face, the team at Fish Bowl Frisco excels in this as well. The owners are wonderful people that will be happy to help you with whatever you need.



3. The quality of the fish shows. At first bite, you can taste that Fish Bowl is using premium ingredients. They say they use high quality, sustainably sourced fish is high quality, and it is instantly evident when your chopsticks meet your mouth. I love to add spicy sauce and tempura flakes to finish my bowl, for a nice crunch.




Fish Bowl Poké Frisco is open Monday thru Saturday, from 11am - 9pm, and on Sunday from 12pm - 7pm.

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

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

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
