We are headed home from another fun week in the DFW area.
The trip started off well with fried shrimp po boys and fries @ Old Tyme Grocery in Lafayette, LA (I know that's off topic, but it was too good not to mention).
Our fare in the DFW area included (in no particular order):
Very good lunch at Mi Taza in Denton. We all had sampler plates with different choices and it was all very good. The portions were huge. We should've split two plates, but were glad we ordered four because we were the only.people.there (at noon on Tuesday). They gave us a complimentary bowl of queso and it was some of the best I've ever had. Different.
Lunch at Tillman's Roadhouse in Bishop Arts. Fun place. Good food and my DH particularly enjoyed the beer selections. I would've been happy with just a loaf of their bread.
Dinner at Lonesome Dove. All I asked for Christmas was for DH to treat the four of us to a great dinner. I sent several choices to my sister (Pyles, Fearings, Craft, LD and Keiichi). We couldn't get a reservation at Keiichi (my nephew's first choice), and LD was his second choice. It was a good one! We had a great time. Atmosphere and service were spot on and there wasn't a disappointing bite of food on the table (we all shared everything around). Standouts were the rabbit loin, the fish in papillote and the ancho chocolate cake with amaretto ice cream. We nearly passed on dessert and were SO glad we didn't. The four of us split that cake/ice cream and it was plenty, but I could've eaten a whole one myself! Oh, and the rabbit/snake sausage app.
Until next time... I hope to be back in March, so I'll be starting my food foreplay for that soon. :-)
Dinner at Frilly's in Denton (good, as always).
Kolaches from Kolache Haven.
(Those two are on my must-do-every-time list.)
I also wanted thai at Andaman, but we ran out of time.
