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.

Mexican / Latin American

Esto es delicioso! In any language… this stuff is delicious!

Fill up with rice, beans, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, avocado and a variety of spices.

…and you know we could taco-bout tacos all day!

 

We are late lunching at @tblancos_addison today. Lovely presentation.

I just overheard someone say “meat heaven”. I think we’d have to agree. #Fogodechao just unveiled an all-new offering – Brazilian Brunch. Now offered on Sundays from 11:30 AM – 2 PM, the Brazilian Brunch menu includes traditional favorites as well as such new items as: · Pão de Queijo Egg Bake: Fogo’s traditional gluten-free cheese bread baked with eggs, asparagus, broccoli, sweet peppadew peppers, and Swiss cheese · Braised Beef Rib Hash: shredded beef ribs seared with hashed potatoes, peppers, and onions · Bolo de Fubá: house-made sweet cornmeal cake (also gluten-free) served with whipped caramelized banana crème · Brunch Beverage Bar: featuring made-to-order Caipirinhas, the national drink of Brazil, Passion Fruit Mimosas, and Fogo’s own Brazilian-spiced Bloody Mary *mediacomp #dallasfoodnerd #dallaseats #instadfw

Filed under things new parents LOVE: food that we didn’t cook AND was delivered to us! And, guess what?! We have a secret. Starting tomorrow you can have @chilis delivered to you if you’re in the Dallas area! Chilis is partnering with @postmates to test delivery. We were very pleased with the process. The #postmates app is very easy to use, just click on any of the Chili’s menu items you want, and a driver will go pick them up and bring them to you. We opted for Southwest + Carribian Salads, a variety of enchiladas, Southwest Egg Rolls (of course), and Triple Berry Crumble. Starting June 4, anyone who signs up for Postmates and uses the code “chilis” in test markets will receive $10 off their first order of Chili’s. That covers… – $3.99 for delivery charge – $6 towards your Chili’s favorites Thanks to Chili’s & Postmates for making sure these new parents actually got to eat a warm meal… and not have to do dishes! #dallasfoodnerd #dallasfood *mediacomp #instadfw #chilis #omnom
