We’ve lost a couple of food trucks in Dallas. As Nancy wrote, Chef Adam west is parking his Unforsacon Bacon food truck to become Executive Chef at The Porch. The folks from the Spanish Lunch Box sent around email offering to sell the truck. I assume this means that they are closing. This week, we [...]
Adam West’s food truck, Unforsacon Bacon, is on hiatus. He might consider doing special events but he’s taken a new job. He’s the new executive chef at The Porch.
Don’t worry, guys. Daniel Vaughn, the BBQ Snob and new Texas Monthly barbecue editor, will never get too big for his brisket. Even though he did hold his most recent book signing for The Prophets of Smoked Meat at a place called Stodghill Manor last Friday, everyone wore “barbecue attire,” drank beer, and dug in to [...]
This email from Jay Jerrier cracks me up. Ladies and gentlemen. Can I please have your attention. I’ve just been handed an urgent and horrifying news story. I need all of you to stop what you’re doing and listen…

Yesterday might have been the end to American Craft Beer Week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t keep drinking your favorite suds. On Saturday, June 15 from 2 to 8 p.m., BeerFeast is Flying Saucer on the Lake’s way of saying, “We love you. Here’s an event with 25 breweries and 50 different craft beers [...]

Randy Hu, one of the guys behind this new boba truck business, emailed me an hour ago to tell me about Bobaddiction. He wondered if I’d be interested in a story about bubble tea, a Taiwanese tea-based drink that started in Taichung. Recipes for it consist of fruit, milk, tea, and tapioca balls that can [...]
Every week or so, I get another email about Dishcrawl. I think this means it’s doing quite well. Another Dishcrawl thingy is happening on Tuesday, May 28, at 7 p.m. If you buy a ticket for $75, you’ll get to eat from three great restaurants under the span of 3 hours: Mesa, Bolsa, and Boulevardier. Only [...]

Word comes that Justin Holt isn’t done with his ramen pop-up shops. He’s doing another one this Saturday at Ten Bells Tavern. Just a little over a week ago, Teresa Gubbins posted on CultureMap that the Lucia-turned-Driftwood chef decided he would take a break from mass-producing his noodles in disposable bowls. But the ambitious man [...]
Happy Friday, SideDishers! What tasty foods did you eat and where did you dine this week? Tell us the good, bad, and the ugly.Here’s what you wrote last week.
Who could do such a thing. Hear the folks at Hypnotic Donuts cry: REWARD!!! Our beloved Baby Donut Pillow has gone missing…since Sunday, May 12th. BDP has been a part of our Hyppie family long before we opened our White Rock location. As seen in this picture with a young Hyppie, BDP is about 14” [...]
I don’t understand the appeal of celebrity wine but I’m, once again, in the minority. A couple of days ago Jasper Russo of Sigel’s sent word that the store had a limited supply of Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose 2012 bottled by Jolie-Pitt & Perrin. He writes: Do you love rosé wine? Do you love [...]
