  NEW AND IMPROVED TO INCLUDE ALL THE FOODS I ATE IN THE YEAR 2017 A.D.: THE FOODBITCH 100, AKA I’LL TELL YOU WHAT TO EAT AND YOU’LL LIKE IT: THE ULTIMATE DALLAS LIST. What are The foodbitch 100? Well I’m glad you asked, m’lady. Or sir. They’re my favorite things to eat in Dallas, […]

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 […]

Date Me in Deep Ellum: Niwa Japanese BBQ

Date me in Deep Ellum! Take me to Niwa Japanese BBQ. Puh-lease! This is going to be a new series. Because it needs to happen. Here’s why. It’s not news that Deep Ellum is like, a THING now. It’s full of awesome stuff. Places to eat and drink and walls to take photos in front […]

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 […]

Super Chix has a New Menu and Here’s a #VIPeek

Super Chix is not just chicken, fries and custard anymore… A foodbitch favorite and permanent member in good standing on the kid-friendly, foodbitch-approved list, Super Chix keeps on improving and growing. A few months ago they expanded their already delicious and nearly perfect menu to include some great new chicken sandwiches, breakfast sandwiches, and even a unique […]

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 […]

Sneak #VIPeek: Toasted Coffee + Kitchen

Toasted Coffee + Kitchen is finally ready to open its doors on Lower Greenville, and it’s about to do just that on Monday. Coffee, wine on tap, beer, and of course toast on house-baked breads will be available to all who enter. The whole place is a custom job, design-wise, and it’s pretty cool. There […]

First Look: The Dream Café is OPEN in East Dallas

A while back, I came across some good news for people who hate shitty tacos. Fuzzy’s at the corner of Mockingbird and Abrams in East Dallas was closing and being replaced by Dream Café. Finally, this week, the newest addition to the family-friendly restaurant scene in East Dallas is (softly) open. Dream Café is planning […]

NOW SWIRLING: Cow Tipping Creamery in East Dallas #FirstLook #VIPeek

Welp, things are happening and they are sweet, delicious things that are very, very bad for my waistline. First, Hypnotic Emporium Ice Cream opened up next to Hypnotic Donuts. Emporium Pies is coming to Deep Ellum. And now this: Cow Tipping Creamery, a mecca of soft serve heaven, is open in East Dallas — right inside […]

Hypnotic Emporium #VIPeek

Opening Wednesday, March 2, Hypnotic Emporium is the little ice cream shop East Dallassites have always wanted. It’s a soda fountain wrapped in a candy store stuffed in an ice cream shop tied with a cute little bow of nostalgia – with a cherry on top, of course. As you know, if you live in […]

A First Look at Lakewood Smokehouse #Comped

I’m just going to start by saying it would take a lot to make me forget about Ali Baba. That’s the Mediterranean-flavored deliciousness that used to reside at the end of my street in Lakewood. But I have to admit the folks who also own Three Stacks BBQ in Frisco have done a pretty sweet redecorating […]

Lake Highlands Residents Rejoice: Resident Taqueria Opens Today

I live in East Dallas. Lakewood, specifically. And in Lakewood, we are lucky enough to have several delicious restaurants to choose from when we are hungry and our kitchens just seem like a lot of …work. But there is a nearby East Dallas neighborhood that is quite vast called Lake Highlands. These vast lands are […]

Unleavened is open and feeding Lakewood local, tasty, healthy things

Fun fact: I get excited when new restaurants open. Shocking, I know. Well, I get super extra excited when new restaurants open up in East Dallas like kind of almost on my street. Unleavened just did that. So I scurried over there, took some photos, wrote about it for the Dallas Observer, and then a […]

#highfashion: @askfoodbitch featured on the Mockingbird Styles blog

And now for something completely different. I got to act like a style blogger (well, one who eats a ton of snacks anyway) a couple of weeks ago when I hit the shops and restaurants around Mockingbird Station with a badass photographer in tow to be featured on the Mockingbird Styles blog. I’m so NOT a style blogger, […]

Decoding Rapscallion’s Bar Menu with Victualler Eddie Eakin: a @DallasObserver @CityOfAte #Repost

The idea for this Q&A came to me while I was standing with my two friends at Rapscallion, waiting to be seated. We were all staring at the cocktails portion of the bar menu, dumbfounded by the words printed there. We didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. We definitely laughed, because it is […]

Let’s Rap About Rapscallion, Shall We? #EATALLTHEDAMNTHINGS @RpscllnDallas

Ahhh yes. The soft open. They should really call it a hard open because, well, you know. Okay, I’ll say it. Soft opens get me excited. Yep. In that kind of way. I snagged a table (thank you, sweet baby jesus!), brought two friends along (Ooh! A threesome!) and headed to the much-anticipated Rapscallion on Friday night. A […]

I’ve got the sickness, and Remedy is the cure.

Remedy, the hot new spot from former Top Chef contestant Danyele McPherson (who worked with chefs Brian Luscher of The Grape and Stephan Pyles of Stephan Pyles, Stampede 66 and San Salvaje), tosses out plate after plate of southern-style greatness you wish your mama made, from hushpuppies with spicy butter to deliciously killer chicken liver […]

Peep the new menu at Goodfriend! #EatingEastDallas

Matt Tobin and Josh Yingling of Goodfriend (and Blind Butcher) have unleashed a new menu upon us. These guys are smart. Know how I know? Because they opened up an awesome bar/restaurant in East Dallas before anyone else was doing something that awesome. And they’ve been rewarded. Full house, waits, and great times every time […]

@CityofAte #CROSSPOST: Dallas’ Best Smoked Cocktails

Okay I don’t know that these are the best. So let me just put that out there. But I went on the hunt, for several hours one night, after scouring the internet beforehand looking for smoked drinks. We tasted some. Some were long gone off of restaurants’ and bars’ menus and wouldn’t be back until […]

The foodbitch 100 is LIVE!

Happy 2014! What’s that you say? I’m a little bit late? Well, yeah. I had twin food babies in October. WHAT DID YOU DO? Kidding. But all excuses aside, I’ve been working on this list for quite some time and now it’s finally ready for you to enjoy. Inspired by Oh Hey Dallas’ list, over […]

The Pizza in My Backyard: a Look at the New Cane Rosso

Hello, backlog! See, the good news is that since I waited so damn long to enjoy the greatness that is Cane Rosso White Rock, we can now conclude that the new location lacks no deliciousness in comparison to the original in Deep Ellum. It’s all good, you guys. The menu is larger, in fact, and […]

New Food News! Nothing Bundt Cakes (@nothingbundt) is coming to Casa Linda #eatingeastdallas

Oh thank the cake gods! My favorite cake (Yeah, that’s right, you heard me) is coming to East Dallas AKA my very nearby hood. Sorry, hips, this one’s gonna hurt. I got this information via press release on Friday, and immediately squealed with delight. There’s just something about Nothing Bundt Cakes. It’s the most moist […]

More Mot Hai Ba, Please. #eatingeastdallas

Inside the teeny space that housed Watel’s Bistro, which before that housed the famous York Street restaurant, is a new Vietnamese spot created by Jeana Johnson and Colleen O’Hare. It’s cool looking, the menu is small but mighty and there are cute little details like bamboo paper straws and little red monkey friends to hang […]
