Looks Cute, Mi Chula

Despite its chain-y look, Southlake’s Mi Chula is a doll.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Mi Chula’s looks like a chain restaurant. It’s not. But the Southlake restaurant has a familiar feel to it, even if you’ve never been there before –– chalk it up to slick avocado-green and brown paint and brightly col...


Currying Favor

Chow, Baby
When Chow, Baby said it liked hanging out in South Arlington, it certainly wasn’t talking about Arlington Highlands, the self-proclaimed “lifestyle center” that has given Chow, Baby renewed appreciation for Southlake Town...



Terra Mediterranean Conquers All

In the new West 7th Street development may be the start of a food empire.
JIMMY FOWLER
If people are still feeling the pinch of a troubled economy, you wouldn’t know it by a visit last Saturday night to the recently opened Terra Mediterranean Grill in the West 7th Street development. A small line formed at the ...


Sushi-Brau

Chow, Baby
Hanging out at Sushi Q (3000 S. Hulen St.) made Chow, Baby think about Cowtown’s broad range of steakhouses. On the top end, you can easily spend $40 to $50 at Bob’s Steak & Grill for a great steak and a big carrot. But...

As the Steam Table Turns

Chow, Baby
During Arts Goggle last Saturday night, Chow, Baby and the beloved … wait, you ask, don’t you mean the ex-beloved? (We pretend for the sake of Chow, Baby’s ego that you care about its semi-private life.) Nope; as it turns...



Garliq Doesn’t Stink

The newly opened family-owned Southlake eatery piles on the flavor.
BY LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Garliq is a newish, family-owned, family-friendly eatery in Southlake. The menu is full of interesting factoids about the herb, which is apparently also considered a vegetable. Unusually, for a cheerfully decorated strip-mall r...


Tequila Rain Still Charms

Chow, Baby
Can it be that Chow, Baby is actually mellowing as it slowly and handsomely ages? Sounds like crazy talk — and yet when Chow, Baby entered Tequila Rain Cantina & Grill (415 N. Main St., Euless) to be immediately set upon ...
