Where We’re Eating

As the prospect of another week rears its head, we at Entree Dallas began to let our imaginations wander – an all-too frequent habit –  and started daydreaming of what foodstuffs and viddles might help us make the journey to Friday. We figured a few destinations might help provide a little culinary light to the Monday gloom.


For nearly 33 years, Enchiladas has been serving up its own style of Tex-Mex to the Dallas area, and with locations in both Downtown and on Greenville, dishes such as the Loco White Wings (jalapenos and cheese wrapped in chicken breast, dove style) and Avocadolada (guacamole enchiladas) are well within reach of a vast number of Dallasites. Our favorite? The Lights Out Enchiladas – two chicken enchiladas covered in both sour cream sauce and queso. It’s a big, rich meal and a calorie bomb to boot, but it’s nonetheless a pleasure to dig into.

 Soup’s On!

Every year for the past five years, The Stewpot Alliance has thrown their Soup’s On! event with a long lineup of noteable Dallas chefs cooking their favorite soups to help raise awareness and funding for The Stewpot Alliance, which offers a safe haven for homeless and at-risk individuals of Dallas, providing resources for basic survival needs as well as opportunities to start a new life. This year’s event, which will be held tomorrow at The Omni Hotel, will feature such chefs as Jason Maddy of Oak,  Janice Provost of Parigi, Nathan Tate of Boulevardier  and many others, while Brian Luscher of the Grape Restaurant acts as Chef Chair of the luncheon.
