Q Tacos at Machos Cantina Why limit your taco nights to Taco Tuesday? Around here, every day can be a taco kind of day, with the wealth of taco spots that grace our city streets. This one’s a good one (as well as a mouthful): Q Tacos at Machos Cantina. The restaurant formerly known as […]

Eat, Drink and Lounge Here

Real talk: I’m kind of freaking out about Lounge Here. Lounge Here in East Dallas is my new favorite. Like, it’s so good. So, so good. It’s like foreplay. It’s my love language. Take me someplace really pretty, get me kinda tipsy, feed me a chicken fried ribeye (hey, this is my fantasy, remember.) and […]

Lekka Means Good: a #VIPeek at the New Henderson Location

Lekka Means Good Last week my Food Bastard and I got to do drinks and dinner together thanks to a couple of really nice grandparents who were willing to take care of our crazy Food Babies while we hit the town. But where to go for dinner? It might be a humblebrag, but it’s also […]

SNOWBABY. Shaved Ice + Awesome is Coming to Lakewood

Image via Snowbaby’s Instagram page SNOWBABY IS NEITHER SNOW NOR A BABY, BUT IT’S AMAZING. And it’s coming soon to Lakewood. Perhaps you’ve had shaved ice, water ice, or even a sno cone with a house-made, organic flavors poured on top. But you probably haven’t had anything like Snowbaby. Let’s start with the inspiration behind […]

Out-of-this-world donuts, soft serve and more at Sweet Daze in Richardson 

Hey, at least it’s not a unicorn. (They have those too) Sweet Daze has Instagram culture on lock. I felt a little basic instagramming my donut up against the neon sign that says “sweet daze ahead” until I remembered that’s what every other person there was doing too. The actual donuts are just glazed and they […]

All the delicious Mediterranean food at Roti Modern Mediterranean 

Falafel balls, steak, chicken, salmon and spicy lamb meatballs! Rice, flatbread pizzas, hummus, veggies, salads, wraps, pita, sauces and more. It’s all good at @rotimodernmed.

Event Alert: On Wednesdays We Watch “Mean Girls”

WHATEVER I’M GETTING CHEESE FRIES. So, Sundown at Granada has started doing these summer rooftop movies, during which they offer half priced whiskey. That alone should seal the deal for you, because the movies are all cult classics like The Goonies and Austin Powers. But they approached me about partnering with them for their showing of […]

My lightweight, colorful, quality Mom-Work-Life, #Sponsored by @BuiltNY

Hey thanks, BUILT! I have been honestly surprised at how much use I’m getting out of the awesome stuff that BUILT sent me. The City Carryall has all but replaced my heavy leather laptop bag (summer, here I come), and speaking of needing to hydrate, the water bottles are inexpensive, yet high quality alternatives to that […]

// #SPONSORED: // What to eat at Fort Worth’s @FortressFest this weekend 

Going to Fortress Festival? Raise your hand if you plan most of your weekend around the meals you’ll be eating. Yep, me too.

POKÉ ALL DAY: A #VIPeek at Pokébop in Oaklawn

Poke All Day: A #VIPeek at Pokébop in Oaklawn ​​ As I type this, another poké spot has likely opened its doors. I’m not mad at it; I love the fresh, light, healthy, Asian flavors of a poké bowl. On any given day I am likely craving such a thing, in fact. So I’m happy […]

Going GREEN: Dallas’ 11 Best Salads Right Now

You pinch, I punch. That’s my motto on St. Patty’s Day, anyway. Even though green is my favorite color, I’m not so much into the holiday itself. We Jewish folk have plenty of our own drinking holidays; there’s no need to piggyback off others’. One of our biggest, Purim, was just a couple of days […]

Lovers Seafood is for Lovers (of Seafood) #VIPeek

Do you love fish? I do. Last week, the team at Lovers Seafood & Market invited a group of media and influencers (including Yours Truly) to a #VIPeek at the newly renovated spot before it opened to the public. Reborn from a former seafood market (Rex’s), and with the feel of another seafood market (TJ’s), it’s not […]

Like A Shake Shack Cowboy

Just wanted to drop a quick post to say that Shake Shack’s BBQ menu is damn tasty. And their seasonal shakes, including the Mint Cookies & Cream one pictured below, are definitely devilish. I’m not sure I can say I prefer the BBQ Chick’n Shack to the original, but it’s a tasty item to try if you’re […]

Hey There Nikkei

Hey There Nikkei… The newest hot spot in Uptown had only been open a few nights when I snuck in for a peek and a few choice sips. Nikkei, which is named for the fusion of Peruvian and Japanese cuisine (yes, it’s a thing, lucky us), is a sexy little spot that will leave you […]

Pie Tap + #NationalPizzaDay

It’s National Pizza Day. As if you needed an excuse. Pie Tap has some of the most crave-worthy pizza in town, not to mention excellent salads, desserts powered by Dude, Sweet chocolate’s Katherine Clapner and craft cocktails designed by Gabe Sanchez of Black Swan Saloon. With two locations (so far), in the Design District and […]

Super Late Super Bowl List

Sources tell me there’s a “Big Game” coming up this Sunday. I don’t know, I’m not really into sports. It’s just so gosh darned American: exercising our right to watch America’s game on a big screen TV while drinking American beers and eating American food. In fact, of the teams playing is the Patriots, for goodness’ […]

A #VIPeek at Water Grill, Now Open on McKinney Avenue 

WATER GRILL DALLAS, I see you wavin’ Here in Dallas, we have a lot of restaurants. Like, too many. Far too many. That’s why so many good ones fail, in fact. But despite the plethora of choices, the number of quality seafood restaurants is actually quite small. I can count on one hand the seafood […]

Foodbitch Travel Playbook: How to Cruise Featuring Royal Caribbean

I’ll be honest. Cruising isn’t my favorite way to vacation. Cruising with family and kids probably doesn’t help either. But, there are ways to do it, things to know, stuff to bring and expectations to set that will help you have a successful, and even delightful, cruise experience. Even if you’re not the cruising type, like […]
