Who doesn’t love a list? Today, our exclusive series returns with more Big D insider finds and favorites!
Though her identity remains somewhat anonymous, the spicy blogger behind foodbitch is remarkably transparent about what drives her dishy reviews. “I want to make people smile in their stomach places,” she quipped. “I’m not a professional chef or food critic, but I am an expert orderer, a lover of the culinary experience, and a home cook and entertainer!”
The undercover author is also a self-described cuisine “snob,” but foodbitch fanatics flock to the site for her unpretentious perspective on Dallas dining. Serving up tasty perspectives on the city’s established restaurants, emerging hot spots, and noteworthy chefs — foodbitch’s candor reflects her expertise as both a copywriter and freelance food journalist, as well as the everyday conundrums she faces as the mom of twin #foodbabies. Now, she’s unveiling her top Big D list of local must-see venues, to satiate a wide diversity of palates. Read on for the latest dish.
Foodie Favorite: “As a food writer, selecting one restaurant would be like choosing a favorite child – impossible! However, given my well-known affinity for Japanese cuisine, I’ll admit that Tei An is my top-stop for classics including the white seaweed salad, perfect salmon nigiri, and soba sampler,” the blogger dishes.
Go-To Boutique: Revealing a penchant for shiny finds, foodbitch confessed, “I’m a fan of Nicole Kwon’s West Village concept store; her jewelry collection is especially great, even if it inevitably leaves me wishing I’d hidden my credit cards from myself.”
Artistic Addiction: The Etsy enthusiast offered her picks among the site’s innumerable artisans sharing, “Incorporating the #foodbabies’ nursery into our Lakewood home was a challenge, but bold, whimsical pieces from local upcycler Llave Designs and Canadian artist Helen Dardik helped solve my design conundrum.”
Best Buys: “Most of my deal hunting now happens online,” the new mom explained. “But I’m also a regular at Milk & Honey because the boutique is dedicated to cool, well-priced goods – and it’s close to home!”
I Heart Dallas: Citing the destination’s eclectic appeal, foodbitch touted Klyde Warren Park as a must-see in Big D, adding, “My go-to perch is the patio at Savor. You can see all of the kids, dogs, dancers, yogis, daydreamers, lovers, and fellow foodies on the greenbelt while enjoying wine on tap, the city’s most addictive deviled eggs, and incredible smoked-roasted salmon!”
