Man Dallas was a really nice time for me and my mom . I find that every time I go away I find little more chunks of myself . Things I never noticed about myself ,things I need to change . Just more growth . Anyway I went to Dallas for my best friend wedding . It was the most precious and sweetest wedding I’ve ever been to . Everything was a personal touch . Simple yet detailed . She did such a good job and I’m so very happy for them both . We’ve come a long way as friends and as women and I’m just proud . And I feel special to have even been able to share one of the most important days in her life . Meant a lot to me .
With going to Dallas you know there is the most delicious food and I have to share some of the places me and my mom went .
Our first stop was Oddfellows . It’s a popular brunch spot out in bishop arts district . I will tell you that the food was so good that I had to go twice lol . The first time around though I had the breakfast scramble of the day which was a mozerella pesto and chive and tomato scramble. I had that with veggie sausage, tortilla on the side and a order of beignets . My mom got sausage biscuits and gravy and eggs .
Everything was amazingly good . The beignets were fried to perfection and not oily and the amount of powder sugar was perfect . Everything was flavorful and just delicious .
The second time around we got the P.O.D which stands for Pancake of the Day . It was blueberry so we got two to share . I got the Migas omelette which was Monterey Jack cheese , sour cream,Pico and inside the omelette was the crunchy tortilla chips . At first I was concern but when I ate it the texture of the soft omelette and crunch from the chips it was perfection . My mom had the scramble of the day which had chorizo amongst other things lol . The food was so good we literally ate everything . We love odd fellows .
Best brunch food everrrrrr. We went to a couple places I forgot to take pictures of like this dope Chinese restaurant Rocio took us to that was delicious . Very authentic too .
Most days we ate in at out Airbnb or ordered from this Chinese place . Sunday we decided to get out the house and go to this bookstore /bar called The Wild Detectives . This place was super cool although I couldn’t find books I liked . The whole concept of being able to drink and read is just quite amusing to me . Or just to chill and have a latte or tea . I got a peppermint tea from there but that was about it .
Straight after this we went to Emporium Pies because I started to feel melancholy and needed something sweet . The place is a cute little spot . I didn’t like the price of paying 6 bucks per slice but my best friend told me so many times to come here so I said I trust her word for it and my god . We tried the Lord of the pies which is a apple pie with streusel the best I’ve had and beautiful delicious Carmel apples . We had another pie I forgot the name of it but it was this nutty deliciousness . And it had this peanut butter mousse it seem like it and this crunchy toffee bottom . These pies were so good and worth every bit of 6 bucks .
Our final destination was Dallas Grilled Cheese Co. This place was so cute and charming inside and a very chill spot where you can just wear casual clothes. The menu had different grilled cheese, soup and salads and appetizers . I had the rustic grilled cheese and tomato basil soup . My mom had the chicken wings and sweet potato fries . We ate all of this for 25 bucks . It was just amazing the price difference from there to New York . The food though was delicious and the grilled cheese was just how I like mines buttery and crunchy and soft and gooey lol .
Dallas was amazing and the food was even better lol . I really enjoyed my stay here and sharing moments with friends and family was just great . Can’t wait to visit again . Until next time Dallas !
