Are you tired of the same old menu every time you go out to eat? Want to impress your spouse or significant other on date night? How about trying something new and exotic? Don’t get me wrong, I love steak, chicken fried steak, tacos, and burgers. But I also love trying out new and different foods and like the saying goes, “New year new me” right? Braised Escargot, lamb tongue, grilled fish topped with shrimp and so much more! These dishes are sure to impress your date and friends.
SanabelS Mediterranean Grill’s menu is quite impressive with lots of different entrees and appetizers to choose from. But for something that you won’t find just anywhere, try the Lamb Shish Kabob. You get two skewers of char-grilled cubes of tenderly seasoned lamb kabobs served with tahini sauce, rice and your pick of two sides. I’m also partial to the chicken Tikka plate. For the full menu visit their website.
Canary by Gorji not only serves some of the most delicious food you’ve ever tasted, the overall experience is simply superb. The exotic dish to try here is the braised Escargot in Pomodoro with mushrooms, fresh basil, gorgonzola dolce and just a hint of cayenne. There is also the Lamb Tongue Crostini and the Pulled Rabbit Paella (Spanish chorizo, mussels, and shrimp, mushrooms, red onion with saffron white wine rice.) Check out their website for the rest of the menu.
At Nate’s Seafood and Steakhouse, they are known for their delicious crawfish, steaks and these insanely tasty oysters. But you must try the Redfish St. Charles. They grill a redfish and serve it on the half shell, top it with shrimp, scallops, and mushrooms in a brown butter wine sauce. Do your taste buds a favor and order this!
For authentic Thai, try Thai Spice Dallas on the southwest corner of the Dallas Tollway and Frankford. While my go to here is their amazing Pad Thai, for something a little more adventurous try the Pad Prik King Pork; stir-fried sliced pork tenderloin, fresh ginger, onions, green beans, bell peppers, mushrooms and red curry sauce. And for dessert, the Sticky Rice is a must!
