Super Chix

Cluck! Cluck! There's a new top chook in town and Super Chix has us clucking for more! Dallas has an insatiable appetite for fried chicken. Every time a new fried chicken place opens, it's packed. When we're at the mall, the lines at Chick-Fil-A snake around at all hours while the adjoining businesses trickle with customers. And I have to admit, fried chicken is also my fast food weakness so I couldn't help myself when the new Super Chix opened in Addison. We just had to go.

CiboDivino MarketPlace and Caffé

In a previous post, Napa Valley with Kids, we raved about a wonderful marketplace called Oakville Grocery store and just as we get back to Dallas, we discovered the newly opened CiboDivino Marketplace and Caffé! Owners Daniele Puleo (of Daniele Osteria on Oaklawn and Inzo Italian Kitchen) and his wife, Christina, have recreated a similar gourmet experience paying special tribute to Daniele's Italian Sicilian background. But in true Texas style where everything is bigger, the Italian eatery, marketplace and bar designed by Ron Guest is a spacious 4,400 square foot including an additional 2,200 square foot patio and a wonderful green lawn space for outdoor picnicking at Sylvan Thirty in Oak Cliff.

Underground Indian Cuisine in Irving

Beefcake and I love Indian food especially when we lived in Singapore. We'd go to hawker stalls and gorge on roti and hot curries served on a banana leaf instead of plates. But since moving to Dallas, we'd not ventured too much into the cuisine especially after having the kids. But slowly we've found some authentic places and they seem to be clustered around the Irving/Las Colinas areas. Underground Indian Cuisine is one of them. They serve Pershawri Indian cuisine from the Northern region which tends to be less spicy. It's a great way to introduce the children to Indian cuisine
