Fresh, Healthy, Fast: Roti Modern Mediterranean

Roti Modern Mediterranean's motto is "Food that loves you back". With build-your-own rice plates, salads, Laffa wraps, and pita sandwiches, you can add your choice of proteins, sides, toppings, and sauces. I can vouch that this food absolutely did love me back, as I felt good and energized all day after dining there for lunch. No midday slumps here!

Roti Modern Mediterranean, a Chicago based fast casual restaurant, opened its first Texas location this earlier this summer at McKinney & Olive in Uptown. A build-your-own bowl, sandwich, salad, or wrap concept, you add your proteins, sides, toppings, and sauces, loading up your healthy meal to your liking.

Add a side of Spicy or Regular Hummus, with house-baked pita bread, and you've got a well-balanced, very filling meal. (Not used to healthy stuff? I just tell my stomach it's Mediterranean chips and queso - does the trick!)

Check out the menu below to decide what you'd create at this new health-conscious spot.

Entree-wise,  I really enjoyed the spicy lamb meatballs (spicy lamb, red quinoa, fresh herbs, and Parmesan) shown here in salad form. If you like spicy - try the Green S'hug sauce on your creation.

The signature Chicken Roti is also very flavorful - chargrilled antibiotic-free chicken with their special blend of spices. I'll be back to try the falafel for one of my meatless days, as Roti is an ideal spot for food-conscious diners looking to make the healthiest of choices.

Roti's CEO Carl Segal says, “The Mediterranean diet has sustained people for centuries. Rich in vegetables, wholesome grains, and lean protein, this is a delicious and healthful way to eat. At Roti, we source only the finest ingredients, prepare them simply and with pride, then serve them exactly how you want them.”

Segal continues, "We want you to craft an eating experience that’s uniquely yours. Whatever you’re in the mood for, whether it’s char-grilled steak, crispy falafel, or something spicy, we’ll help you curate your perfect meal — ensuring that whichever path you choose, they all lead to delicious. We want you to feel great about your choices, knowing that we’ll make sure everything we serve is wholesome and full of flavor.”

Roti Dallas is open M-F from 11am-9pm, and Saturday from 11am-7pm. Be sure and get your parking validated if you park in the garage at McKinney & Olive.

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
