Five Dallas Dishes to Keep You Warm During This Week's Terrible Cold Snap
What the? Unless you were sequestered your apartment with blankets over the windows, you had to notice it was 80 degrees at one point this weekend. Birds were singing, tree blossoms exploded, and baby deer were frolicking with rabbits along Turtle Creek, trying to remember where they parked their car the night before.
Yet last night sleet turned Stemmons Freeway into a bobsled track for cars, and now low temperatures are expected to remain close to freezing the rest of the week, squashing your plans to box up your sweaters for the season. But don't be glum: Spring can't be that far off, and when it does come you'll lose your excuse to hunker down with these cold weather faves.

Dan Dan noodles, soup dumplings and beef noodle soup -- any of these could crush your sad wintery feelings, but order all three and you'll be warm until spring finally arrives. Monkey King combines big, bold flavors with hand-crafted techniques to deliver some of the best Chinese street food to be had in Dallas.
A super bowl of pho at Pho Pasteur delivers an epic quantity of soup. The broth is already steaming hot when it arrives, but you can make it hotter with a measure of sriracha sauce and a few slices of fresh jalapeño. With just one sip your mouth will be aglow, and the rest of you won't be too far behind.
