We are just a little over a quarter of the way into 2019. One of my resolutions or goals every year is to try out new food, new things, new places to visit and explore. So far this year, I’ve tried fried alligator tail and like they say, tastes like chicken. So, let me help you get out of your comfort food zone and let’s explore some unusual dishes in Addison from around the world.
Let’s start out with that fried alligator tail. Head to Nate’s Seafood and Steakhouse and order the Alligator Nuggets. You can have them blackened, fried or broiled. Also, try the stuffed jalapeños which are stuffed with chicken and Nate’s seasoning. www.natesseafood.com
For a quick bite, try F&F on Belt Line. Racing inspired theme throughout and serving delicious Japanese bowls. Try the Pork Bibimbab. Made with a variety of healthy vegetables, marinated slice pork and served with rice, an egg on top and spicy sauce. You can also order it with beef instead of the marinated pork. I also love the Super Bowl and Wow Bowl. So many choices. Give them a try, great when you want something delicious but are short on time. Visit their website for the full menu.
El Portal Café. This one is dear and near to my heart because it’s a Colombian restaurant. The food is just like my family makes it back home and it’s actually the only Colombian restaurant my parents will eat here in Texas. That’s how great it is. Try the Bandeja Paisa. Served with rice, pinto bean soup, fried pork, fried plantains, avocado, fried egg and more. You can actually split it between two people. It’s so much food. If you split it, you’ll have some room to try something from their authentic Colombian bakery. www.elportalcafe.com
Mr. Sushi has been serving authentic Japanese specialty dishes for many years. It truly is, as authentic as it’s going to get for Japanese food and sushi. Check out their website for a complete list of dishes and drinks. Try the Jizake, premium country sake from Japan served chilled; it has quite a presentation also.
