Don't Just Explore Your Neighborhood...Taste It.

Events like Taste Addison are a treat to the community because not only are you getting a chance to have fun and feasts on some top quality eats from around the area, but you’re also playing an active role in keeping the community thriving. So I really implore you all to go this upcoming weekend.

If you do, you’re in for the following delicacies, among others:

You know that one scene in the movie Black Panther where they dive into the forest and an entire hidden and
the advanced city of Wakanda is revealed to the audience? That was like finding the delicious Thai chicken curry
under all these yummy vegetable and noodle garnishes. From: Thai Orchid

The red chile crusted salmon taco with the creamy, crunchy chimayo market elotes is a match made in heaven
whose magic was able to experience as an Earth dweller. From: Blue Mesa Grill

Look at that texture! From: Blue Mesa Grill

Keeping to the taco theme, these chicken and beef street tacos really know how to pose.

 If brisket is more your thing, I would try the brisket tacos from Ron's Place

Good old BBQ is always a winner. This here is the brisket slider with a piece of their scrumptious sausage.
From: Dickey's

 The spread from Dickey's in all it's glory

The beautiful specimen of sausage from Dickey's with their must-try iced tea peeking out from the background.

This bite of meatballs al forno from Public School 972 could be the most perfect bite ever bitten.

 The Greek food spread at the Table 13 table was a sight to see.

I'm a bak-lover, not a fighter

Absolutely do not miss out on these bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with bleu cheese from Table 13.

 My personal favorite bite was the "Dope Toast" from Zoli's NY Pizza

Me, trying to make the bite last.

The brownie bites from Mad Batter Baker were insanely good and very quick in disappearing.

 With libations a plenty...
and bites innumerable there's no way you could go wrong!

And what you see here isn't even all of it! Taste Addison will be featuring several other Addison restaurants in addition to the ones featured above on May 18-20th at Addison Circle Park. The event will have various family-friendly activities (many included with admission). Guests are encouraged to attend cooking demos, enjoy the carnival and games, indulge in sips from the Craft Beer Hall and Wine Garden, and of course, catch live entertainment from some of the hottest country artists like Casey Donahew (view the full line-up here). The good folks at Visit Addison and their sponsors (Budweiser, Albertsons Tom Thumb, 107.5 Fierro-HD2, Ava Grace Vineyards, 99.5 The Wolf, New Country 96.3 KSCS, Coca-Cola, Dallas Morning News and Guide Live) have quite the weekend plan, so be sure to come out with your friends and family to have fun and show your support of the community!

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
