We are celebrating 4 years since the launch of DallasFoodNerd! DFN is a community project of a few (30+ now!) DFW-based nerds who happen to like food, probably a little too much! Do you have a restaurant that you would like to have featured? Reach out to the DFN founders @Elysa or @RoryEllis or email Foodie@dallasfoodnerd.com.

European / Mediterranean

Want to dine in a French parlor?

Hoping to catch a breeze off the shores of Greece?

We can’t necessarily get you there… but these restaurants might do the trick!

 

DFN contributor @nellidfw16 is talking about Afrah Mediterranean Cuisine’s Sampler platter #ontheblog. They have locations in Richardson and Irving. . . . I ordered the Afrah Sampler to taste a bit of a few popular appetizers from the menu. I highly suggest grabbing the sampler since it’s perfect for sharing with your dining companions – there’s a lot of items to go around! From left to right we had: Falafel (a fried and breaded ball of chickpeas and vegetables), Grape Leaves (rice, onions, tomatoes and parsley tossed in lemon juice and wrapped in a delicate leaf that you can certainly eat), and bowls of Hummus and Baba Ghannouj (with eggplant). The homemade Pita bread is puffy and perfect for pairing with the dips. You can also order the dips separately. Another dip I suggest ordering is the one with yogurt and cucumber; it’s light and makes a tasty filling for your Pita bread.
