Updated to include 2017: The Foodbitch 100

 

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, narrowed down, of course, to only a hundred. This venture was very much inspired by my girl Oh Hey Dallas’ list of her Top 100 Things to Consume in Dallas. I’ve felt compelled for quite some time now to give everyone my top 100, too. Some of these second her list; that only means they’re doubly recommended.

There are so very many delicious things to eat in Dallas. But if I had just 100 days to live, here’s what I’d eat, assuming of course that I could only eat one thing per day. Perhaps I have a rare disease that only allows me one meal per day until I die in exactly a hundred days. Or maybe the backstory doesn’t matter. Consider this a checklist of awesome Dallas eats. And consider it a challenge, folks.

Bonus: I’ve ‘grammed a hell of a lot of food in this town. Scary lots. So there are links below to some of my instagram photos of these bites. Enjoy the food porn with my compliments.

Another bonus: I’ve included some links to my friends at OpenTable.com, so you can make a reservation right from this here page. The OpenTable iPhone app in particular is really, really great for making reservations. I’m a bit addicted to it, actually. I’ve also included some Zomato links for you if the spot isn’t a reservation-type place.
