Whats your favorite ethnic restaurant in dfw?

ChefJM | Jul 5, 2012 02:11 PM

I love trying different cuisines from around the world and I noticed that DFW has A LOT to offer. I notice that I find the "mom and pop" places to be the best for taste and home style meals.

A few of my favorite that I know about are:

1.) My Lan- (Haltom city, Vietnamese food), Really good pho, egg rolls, grilled pork vermicelli bowls at a very reasonable price. Oh and the srping rolls are really good with the sauce they serve them with.

2.) San Luis taqueria- (Fort Worth, Mexican tacos, tortas, and gorditas) Go there for their tacos al pastor. They cook the meat the traditional way on the vertical roaster with a pineapple slices on top. They also have REALLY good charro beans and homemade chips and salsa. Auga frescas and gorditas are good also.

3.) Sana Indian Restaurant- (NRH, Indian food/grocery) Ok so I've tried indian food ALL over the metroplex (especially in irving and north of dallas) and I have never tried better chicken curry, yellow daal, naan and briyana. It's seriously the best I've had. Its a little hole in the wall (and very hard to see) indian grocery/restaurant, with everything you need to make a indian meal yourself. They also sell fresh hala meats (fish, beef, lamb, goat and chicken). Get the "sana special": chicken curry, yellow daal and naan or rice. It's a must.

4.) Cuco's Sandwich Shop- ( NRH cuban food/sandwiches) This small Pink building is a must for a good pressed cuban sandwich. They roast the pork in house and it is delicious. Order a side of the fried sweet plantains (the best I ever had) and your in heaven! They have other pressed sandwiches, full breakfast menu, "build your plate" daily specials. Give it a try.


Now I'm pretty new to the DFW area so I don't know too many places, but the ones I listed are all good eats.

This is where I need your suggestions please. I love all kinds of food and love to try new mom and pop / hole in the wall restaurants. I'm always all over DFW so please feel free to list any places you know of.

So whats your favorite?
