DFW restaurants worth a taste

Ever spent a week salivating over the latest word in Dallas/Fort Worth restaurants just to discover that the taste didn’t add up to the hype? Here are a few delicious options that have proven true to the word on the street in both taste and character.

Kalachandji’s
5430 Gurley Ave
Dallas, TX 75223
(214) 821-1048
www.kalachandjis.com
Kalachandji’s is like no other place in the metroplex. Not only is the food healthy but the menu is as colorful as the place itself. The naturally-made, from scratch vegetarian menu is ripe with spices and tastes from India and beyond, all of which are filling and satisfying. The lush garden area is an outdoor escape like no other that adds a deeper level of enjoyment to dining. Cooking classes and spiritual journeys are also begun here.

FT33 Dallas

Dallas, TX 75207

Featured in Foodways Texas and other media, FT33 focuses their energy on freshness and finding new ways of allowing ingredients to speak for themselves in flavor and zest. They use ingredients that are seasonal and straight from farms to the table, blended and twisted together in a modern and buzz-worthy way.

Fireside Pies
2949 Crockett Street
Fort Worth, TX 76107
(817) 769-3590

Not every pizza is perfection. However, at Fireside Pies, it would be hard to tell. Each pizza is cooked in an authentic wood-fire oven, with an enviable variety of ingredients, true to artisan style. Although Fireside Pies has expanded to include a few more locations after starting out in Dallas, each one has the feel of the neighborhood in which is resides, making each Fireside Pies location unique in itself.

Pecan Lodge
2702 Main St.
Dallas, TX 75226
(214) 748-8900
www.pecanlodge.com
Named one of the top four barbecue joints in the world by Texas Monthly, Pecan Lodge has earned its stripes in the mesquite-smoked barbecue business. Many menu favorites are made from scratch and by hand to add taste. Pecan Lodge’s brisket, ribs and pulled pork are smoky, rich and jaw-droppingly full of flavor.

Nazca Kitchen
8041 Walnut Hill Lane, Suite 854
Dallas, TX 75231
(214) 696-2922
www.nazcakitchen.com
Nazca Kitchen is not bragging when it calls its menu “food for the gods.” This South American restaurant knows that great drinks have to accompany their tantalizing ingredients. Fresh juices and South American beers are on the drink menu to help wash down the delectable quinoa, chorizo, ceviche, Latin rice and other tasty, treats from the other American hemisphere, served in modern style.
