Food Trucks! All About Food Trucks! Because Food Tastes Better With a Side of Exhaust.

Categories: Lettuce Wrap Up

Breast-milk ice cream. Seriously, what is wrong with people?
If you're not charmed by the food truck fad, then this week may have been slightly dull. If a food truck sighting is tantamount to spying a unicorn or an In-N-Out, then the blogosphere has some good news for you.

It has something for you non-believers too. You like pictures of hamburgers, right?

City of Ate
Kristy Yang discovered that first impressions aren't always correct. Upon subsequent visits to Asador, the restaurant has its act together and delicious food served by capable wait staff.

Alice Laussade calls Spiral Diner "shockingly unshitty," which is actually high praise.

Sadly, we've reached the end of the Taco Trail. Vaya con taco, Jose.

Up for some food porn?

Not enough? Here, we'll hit you with food porn twice.

Spice and fried chicken should be two Southern specialties, but Kristy found that Korean joint 1 Plus Chicken has everybody beat.

Elizabeth Bair has had it with Kenny's balls and the marketing team for Kenny's Italian Kitchen. I've had it with all that Papyrus typeface.

Food truck sighting! In ... Arkansas. But here's another around Dallas!

You used to like breast milk, so why are you making that face?

Side Dish
Andrew Chalk reported that Raul and Olga Reyes have reopened their restaurant, La Palapa Veracruzana, as Mesa. Even with a new name and a new atmosphere, they're still serving up richly authentic Veracruz-style Mexican cuisine.

If you didn't make it out to Taste of Addison this year, Elizabeth Lavin has a handful of photos, though looking at food isn't really a close second to tasting it.

You know blogs usually like to tell you what to eat? This time, Nancy Nichols has a roll call of all the foods that annoy Dallas diners, starting with cute foods. Personally, I enjoy a good wad of cake of a stick. But I agree that lamb lollies border on gimmicky.

I cannot believe there were three food truck sightings in one week. This is the last time I'm mentioning it. Food truck, this time in Dallas. Knock yourselves out.

Pegasus News
Steve Fields Steak and Lobster Lounge has its act together as far as the food goes. Their hostess just needs an attitude adjustment.

A basketball star and a real estate agent go into the cupcake business together. Sounds like the set up for a joke, but it appears to be real life.

Escape Hatch Dallas
Celebrating the rapture with a $120 steak sounded like a good idea. After all, you can't take that money with you.

Crave DFW
If you eat a lot and think you should be famous for it, Crave DFW has a list especially for you.

I guess my brain is getting old and tired, or I'm not part of the 'cool' that seems to permeate DO articles because I do not understand more than three sentences in this article.

The style of writing here at DO just plain stinks...


you're right, you sound old.


Agreed Parker.  Only someone who is college educated can write this lazily, this consistently.  And it's not just this blog; it permeates the entire site/weekly.  The only exception is Wilonsky. He appears to have some sense of pride in maintaining basic technical skills. But even he will lapse into shoddy writing from time to time. Besides, there seems to be one overriding opinion throughout the writers and commenters, no matter the subject. Quite frankly, it's boring and it stinks. In short, I'm no longer going to visit this site or read its published version. The sad thing is, most everyone, including the sites contributors, who happens to read this reply will either say "who cares" or "good riddance you %&#@ tard."


It's Brooke. She writes like she's tweeting
