Doesn’t bowls of steaming noodles in hot soup sound perfect for our cold weather? Opened in July 2014 on the ever popular Beltline strip in Addison, Ramen Hakata has fast become one of our favorite ramen houses. It’s a big stand out not only because it’s not a chain restaurant but because of the long lines that snake out the door.
NorthPark Center is really stepping up it’s mall food options. First with Green House Market which has become so many of my friends’ new favorite cafe and now with the newly opened Pho Kitchen that is sandwiched between Which Wich and Snappy Salads. If the guys behind the counter look a little familiar, that’s because this is not their first rodeo or pho joint. They are the same crew behind East Wind in Deep Ellum.... Read More
Happy birthday, Googie! How is it possible that you are two so soon? You had such a rough start in life but thanks to the awesome doctors at Presbyterian Hospital and good old fashioned prayers, we managed to take you home at 3 weeks old.

It’s more than a coffee shop, it’s a cafe. Unlike most coffee places, the food isn’t prepackaged in a counter for you... Read More
Believe it or not, our new favorite healthy eating spot is at the mall. Green House Market at Northpark Center with it’s chef driven, farm-to-table menu is a game changer to mall food. The little spot tucked behind AMC theaters (directly above Breadwinners) is opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner and features handmade pastries, pressed juices, locally sourced ingredients, desserts, Blue Bottle coffee, organic wines and craft beer.
The IttyBittyFoodies love escaping their reality to hang out in hipster haven at the Monkey King Noodle Company in Deep Ellum. Ok the hipster part is really more for us parents who want to feel we still have a life after having kids, but who doesn’t love noodles and dumplings, especially handmade ones. Bear in mind, Monkey King Noodle Company is a food stand not a restaurant so for those with little ones in tow... Read More
I tell Pikelet & Lollo to share all the time but I must confess, there’s one thing I’ve been keeping all to myself. It’s my secret favorite Chinese restaurant for Peking duck that I’ve not been able to part with until now… Mr Wok Asian Bistro! The unassuming Chinese/American Chinese restaurant up in Plano is where I go for special occasions like Chinese New Year or big family get togethers. First I’d like to get a few... Read More
