Today we are talking appetizers. The meal before the meal, but so much more! We’re not talking your standard loaded nachos or cheesy fries, no way, we’re talking about the type of appetizers that should be an entrée on their own. Loaded fries with so much bacon it should be a crime or bacon wrapped dates that are so delicious you will end up ordering another round. How about spring rolls that will send your taste buds on a trip across the globe? Find out what some of our favorite appetizers are here in Addison and the Corridor.
First things first, let’s start with all things bacon! Snuffer’s on Belt Line serves its famous “Original Cheddar Fries” which you can get with bacon, chives and jalapeños and a side of delicious ranch. I have to get the large size of these because no matter what everyone else orders, they’re going to ask for some of my fries. At Table 13, the Bacon Wrapped Dates are chili dusted, stuffed with Bleu Cheese and then lightly fried. The combination of sweet and saltiness has been perfected in this appetizer.
If you are looking to take your taste buds across the world to a place where the water is so clear you can see the ocean floor, then Thai Spice on the Dallas North Tollway just south of Frankford is the place to go. The Crab and Avocado Spring Roll at Thai Spice is always made fresh from a family recipe. The avocado-cashew nut sauce that comes with it takes the spring rolls to another level.
It may be summertime but school is very much in session at Public School 972. One of the newest restaurants to open in Addison, PS-972 has a rotating menu that always keeps things very interesting. Right now, try the Bacon Cheddar Tots with Sriracha ketchup (yes, you read correctly: Sriracha. Ketchup) or the Chorizo Mac and Cheese.
While you may know Texas de Brazil because of their incredible selection of meats, their Salad and sides area has some delicious offerings. I always make sure I grab a bowl of their Feijoada (black beans stew). It reminds me of my mom’s red bean soup growing up.
