PhDs – A Bishop Arts Brunch

  Let me start by saying this place has $2 MIMOSAS!!!!! Holy crepes, right? PhDs is a quaint little pub in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas. 1300 West Davis Street, Dallas, TX 75208 There are some amazing eateries around here, and I think I found a new fave! The service was pretty great, except when they brought our check. We waited on it for about 20 minutes. No big…

She Took Me to the Bahn [Mi] Shop

There’s this specialty restaurant on SMU Blvd, this teensy place where Mel’s been dying to get her snack on. Tonight, we decided to order out, and we’re pretty glad we did! 5629 SMU Blvd., Dallas. 214-890-9776. banhshop.com You may be wondering why there are no pictures (Never Fret – I included some mouth-watering ones from their site)….well, let me tell you – we ate way too damn fast! There was no…

Grub – Winningest Shakes & Burgers

There’s this burger spot in what feels like the most awkward spot to park a restaurant along Greenville avenue. When there are so many places to choose from along Dallas’ much-loved, mostly drunk-upon, street – why choose Grub? Let me shed some light on why you’re eating at the wrong burger place. You see, Grub’s located across the way from Desperado’s, Kosta’s Cafe, Rusty Taco, Start, and the soon to be nighttime Starbucks…

Coffee & Donuts

We recently took a road trip to Austin. On our way down from Dallas, we sadly waved as we passed Baylor around 11pm, much too late to stop at Common Grounds. CG was closed, leaving me heart-broken. Any chance I have to stop on campus is a welcome experience. It’s like coming home; not stopping for a quick-sip was a bummer. [We made the time to stop on our way back…

BBQ Bliss

Summer vacation is almost up, which means I have realized just how out of shape I’ve gotten. Volleyball practice started this week, which also coincides with my foray into coaching a high school sport. Let’s just say, it’s been a challenging week! I’ve worked out every single day and come home to work on class curriculum, volleyball workout routines, and map out my upcoming schedule. Part of this organization means…

Strip Mall Sensation – Olive Burger

Technically, this teensy kitchen packs a big punch –> IN RICHARDSON! Ok, so it’s not in Dallas, proper. So what? About 15 minutes North of Highway 12, exit on Arapaho and charge forward to: OLIVE BURGER! 451 W Arapaho Rd, Richardson, TX 75080 (972) 231-5842 Olive Burger is in a quaint, kind of run-down, strip mall on the corner of Arapaho Rd. If you blink, you’ll drive right past it. This…

Fusion Yum at Kampong

Kampong, or kampung, is Indonesian and Malaysian for “village.” This modern spin on quaint, traditional dishes is just the ticket for your taste buds. A definite smiley-faced win for all! You’ll sit down, get tended to immediately – possibly by the owner herself! She was wonderful, sweet, and had the best recommendations from the menu. She even made me something off menu! You’ll find Kampong in a mid-sized strip mall…

Jin’s – A Korean Fave…in PLANO!

I keep seeing pinspirational messages. Subliminal hints from my subconscious to write more, run more, laugh more, cook more. It’s almost as if someone is purposefully making me run across these peppy suggestions. Then this came along… It’s genius, don’t you agree? (not to mention, super cute & nerdy! – Find it at domandhyo.com) As it so happens, one of the beau’s besties (broskis, if you will) invited us to…

Dallasites Penguin Walk

DALLAS is gorgeous under snow and ice. But snow is better. The slick death on roads scares the Oreos out of me. Skidding on black ice is terrible. Ugh. Early this morning, the weather was in the 70s. Then BAM! 22 degrees, feeling like 8. Freezing temperatures were pushed aside as we bundled up and drifted to brunch. [Thankfully, I’m pretty pro at the penguin walk and did not have…

La Ventana

The beau’s parents came to visit!Per usual, we went out to enjoy some amazing food (mostly). Today, we tried a new pop-stand. La Ventana 1611 McKinney Ave. 214-484-6555 I got duped into thinking we were heading to Meso Maya, but we landed at the window here – right behind Meso Maya. Now, I judge a Mexican food establishment on several factors, but my main three are: 1. Chips & Salsa…
