Sloppy Seconds: Taking the Easy Way
The Week in Review(s):
- Your own Dallas Observer: Masaryk leaves Dave with the impression of a place that's gotten good at a "mod-Mex" move, and is doing it over and over.
- Dallas Morning News: Leslie Brenner's visit to Cadot peaks early, with raves over their Dover sole and the soufflé on her first visit. (Here's our take on Cadot from a few weeks back.) Brenner also tackles Sushi on McKinney this week, by her estimation a serviceable neghiborhood joint you want around for an easy fix for your sushi jones.
Highlights from City of Ate:
- Handle the Proof: Breaking the Mojito Rules
Stick with being a mojito purist, swear off fruity frozen drinks, and you'll have plenty of moral high ground -- but sometimes, if you loosen those rules a little, you'll discover a great drink you've been missing.
- Just Who Is This Matt McCallister Guy?
Working your way up through the restaurant business is nothing like easy, but folks still wonder how McCallister, without a formal culinary education, got to be Stephan Pyles' executive chef at 28.
- Girl Drink Drunk: Family Karaoke
Standing alone at the mic before a roomful of people and a confusing karaoke video may seem intimidating at first. But then the apple soju kicks in, and suddenly you're channeling Axl Rose.
- Dude Food: Taqueria El Si Hay
Sometimes the best place for tacos (even better than "The Best Taco in Texas") is just down the street. Sometimes, it's super cheap, too.
