Damn Good Tacos

The Hubby works at TI, and his new group goes out for lunch together on Wednesdays.  They will often visit a taco joint called Torchy’s Tacos.

Surprise Valentine’s Dinner

Ok, I know this is late and that it’s almost March already.  What can I say?  I’ve been busy.  LOL.

So, for Valentine’s Day, the Hubby decided to surprise me with a romantic dinner out.  He wouldn’t tell me where, so it was kind of fun.  He booked a reservation at Lavendou’s Bistro in Dallas.  They had a special Valentine’s set menu.

Urban Eatz

Recently discovered a new place to grab lunch.  Urban Eatz in Richardson is amazingly, and unexpectedly, delicious!  They have artisan sandwiches without some of the pretentiousness that you’d get at some other bistro-like restaurants.  It’s like if Panera served french fries.

(Pictured above) I got a Southwest Chicken sandwich, which is probably my favorite thing I’ve had there.  Sliced grilled chicken breast with avocado, roasted tomatoes, Swiss cheese, chipotle mayonnaise, and mixed greens on toasted ciabatta bread.  It’s comfort food with a touch of class.  The fries are so delicious.

I’ve also tried their Tuna Salad, which is pretty tasty.  And the Hubby has gotten their Pulled Pork sandwich (above middle), which he said has a bbq sauce that tastes just like the bbq sauce they use on the McDonald’s McRib.  So, if you’re looking for something with actual meat and that’s probably tons healthier for you (plus, without the fake grill marks), then you’re better off ordering one of these at Urban Eatz.  He’s also had their Club, which he said was also yummy.

Even though there’s a Panera in the same shopping center, we’ve been drawn more and more to Urban Eatz for lunch on weekends.  Can’t wait to go back!

Chipotle has Brown Rice?!

Chipotle has brown rice now?! When did that happen?!  And where was I?

I love Chipotle, and now I love it even more since I can get brown rice.  And no, it doesn’t taste that much different, but it makes me feel just a tiny bit healthier when I have it with brown rice instead of white.  The nutritional difference is probably miniscule, but hey, whatever.

Dinner and a little club salsa

Last night we decided to be a little adventurous and try out Gloria’s in Addison (they’ve also got a location in Dallas, but Addison was closer to us.)  We’ve heard the food there is really good and on the weekends it turns into a salsa club at 11pm.  Continue reading

Sunday Dim Sum

Sunday, the Hubby and I had a craving for dim sum, so we went to our favorite dim sum place in Richardson–Kirin Court.  This place is really good.  Yes, we’ve had better in New York/Flushing/San Francisco, but for Dallas I think this place is the best.

Don’t forget Whole Foods for lunch

Sliced beef brisket sandwich

I always forget about the option of Whole Foods for lunch until I am actually there.  They’ve got a pretty awesome to-go section that includes sushi, pizza, BBQ, sandwiches, and more.  Since yesterday was a half day because of Good Friday, the Hubby and I decided to try and catch the free cupcake at Sprinkles (which was Green Tree Vanilla cupcake that looks amazing).
