Legacy Food Hall Heaven Opens in Plano, TX

Article by Kimberly Stephens & Nelli Tokleh // Photos by Kimberly Stephens

2017 is ending on a high note in Plano, Texas!

The highly-anticipated Legacy Food Hall located at Legacy West has opened its door and is eagerly waiting to not only greet you with open arms, but to give you a full head-on experience of the DFW food scene. I’ve personally been so thrilled about Legacy Food Hall since conception, and to walk in the doors for opening week to see all the food stalls in their beauty was truly a food lovers’ dream come true.

As of last Wednesday (December 6, 2017) this beautiful hall holds 22 food stalls (with more to come in 2018), several bars and a beer brewery (Unlawful Assembly) on the third floor. The Food Hall has greeted thousands of guests already in under a week, and it’s not going to stop anytime soon. Legacy Food Hall is where Texas-sized food wishes can easily be granted.

The concept of Legacy Food Hall is simple: it’s your very own food playground. Explore everything! Discover your new favorite food or bar and dive in. The Food Hall opens daily at 7 a.m., and breakfast starts at the entrance with Glazed Donut Works, Press Waffle Co. and Whisk & Eggs on level 1. It’s followed by lunch, dinner and late night bites options such as Enter the Bao, Tacos Patron and Knife Burger. Being that the Food Hall is open during the week until 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday (yes, that’s no typo), the spot has something for everyone.

Can we just take one minute to talk about one place at the hall that I instantly fell in love with at first bite at Root's Chicken Shak? Roots is a down-home cooking concept created by Top Chef competitor, Tiffany Derry, is serving up duck fat fried chicken. I opted to try the duck fat chicken wings, and I honestly felt like I was in my great-grandmother’s kitchen again. The duck fat added not only a great flavor to the wings, but it made the meat superbly tender and the skin extra crispy. I’m still dreaming about it, and actually headed back to grab a couple more tomorrow! Not to mention the home-made sauces, of course I tried all three, but my favorite was the sweet ‘n’ spicy BBQ.

The new space will undoubtedly keep you coming back for more with positive vibes, premium food options and drinks flowing - with choices abounding for all who enter.

I could go on and on about this hall, but I want to share the experience with you and show you some drool-worthy pictures. I hope that once you see these pictures, you will grab your wallet (and a friend) and head to the hall to explore and discover your own favorite item.

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
