Gah. Sorry about the quiet few days here, but I’ve been in Texas ya’ll! I flew down last weekend for my gorgeous friend Mariam’s wedding (I mean, STUNNING), and haven’t had much time at the comp. It was my very first time down in Texas and besides the wedding festivities, I was excited about the FOOD. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a whole lot of time to explore Dallas by way of calories, but a group of us did manage to get away one day for brunch. My friend Masuma who lives down there recommended a few places, and we ended up going to La Duni Latin Kitchen at the Northpark mall location which was near our hotel.

Taco from El Taquito
There’s this taco joint across the street from my apartment called El Taquito. The reviews on Yelp were pretty good so I ran over there just now to get a couple of tacos.
Iguana is one of those restaurants I would always pass by but never thought it was more than a bar. It’s actually way bigger than I had thought (THREE floors to dine and dance) and when my friend had her birthday dinner there recently, I found that the Tex-Mex food they serve there is actually pretty tasty.
They make fresh guacamole and spicy to taste.
I loved the veggie/goat-cheese open-faced quesadilla I had:
I didn’t get to try the other plates, but for your viewing pleasure:
My frands were in the mood for some southern grub and basically any place that served fried chicken and mashed potatoes would do, so we went to the honky tonk Rodeo Bar and Grill. It’s a loud bi-level restaurant in Murray Hill that plays live music everyday (though can’t say we were there late enough to hear if the band was any good!).
I love the straight out of Texas woody decor. They served us nachos and watery salsa when we sat down. I was just hoping the subpar salsa wouldn’t be a precursor to the food, but the Chicken Chimichanga plate I ordered was actually REALLY good.
(OK and please Don’t kill me, but I’m delivering phone pics again — this time they’re iPhone pictures my friend helped me out with so they should be a tad better!)
