Boba Me, Baby

CHOW, BABY
I had never understood the appeal of boba tea. Now that I’ve actually tried it I’m in boba lust. (Although I still don’t get the giant globs of tapioca.) My boba quest began by complete accident. In my never-ending search...

And Dance by the Light of the Moon

CHOW, BABY
As a teenager, Chow, Baby dreamed of being a rock star. Despite having no musical talent, a singing voice that might attract stray cats, and no discipline for learning to play an instrument, I still spent many a night in front ...



Beneath this unassuming marquee is a gateway to some successful Thai fare. Chase Martinez

Thai in Bloom

Though mostly tasty, Thai Orchid is still far from Haltom City supremacy.
JIMMY FOWLER
The atmosphere inside Thai Orchid in a small Haltom City strip mall is a little rough around the edges. On a recent weekday dinner visit, clear plastic sheets covered the white tablecloths, and each of the multiple wall-mounted...

Hot Fried Foodies

CHOW, BABY
Last week I braved the July sun and checked out the Go Texan food truck competition at the Cowtown Chow Down food truck park (1100 N. Main St.). The event was sponsored by the Texas Department of Agriculture to celebrate “Din...



The Tower is elegant, its fare full of flair. Lee Chastain

Down to The Tower

In the heart of Sundance Square comes a haute comfort-food “gastropub.”
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
The Tower Restaurant and Speakeasy occupies the same location on the corner of 4th and Taylor streets downtown where The Vault Mediterranean Restaurant flamed out a couple of years ago. The new eatery is owned by the same folks...

The Price of Friendship

Fort Worth Weekly
Am I wrong in thinking it’s a little inconsiderate to invite people you barely know to a birthday party at a fancy-in-the-pantsy, high-priced steakhouse? It would be one thing if the hosts were footing the bill, but they were...


Pretty much everything is authentic and scrumptious at Thailicious. Chase Martinez

Now that’s Thailicious

This new Hulen/I-30 eatery has all the authentic goods.
JIMMY FOWLER
Although the new Thailicious restaurant sits, theoretically, at the southwest corner of Hulen Street and I-30, it’s barely visible from either busy thoroughfare: The eatery is wedged between a bank and a yogurt shop at the ba...

Savoir-Fare

CHOW, BABY
I’ve often fantasized about what it would be like to live in a little European city. I’d wake up from my mid-day nap, hide my bed-head with my beret, pick out my least-wrinkled black-and-white striped shirt, and hit the sho...


Fried fish and jambalaya are staples at Damian’s. Jesus A. Robles

Damian’s Got Soul

This nondescript eatery is serving up big downhome soul/comfort food.
JIMMY FOWLER
The window sign at Damian’s Cajun Soul Café says closing time is 4 p.m., but that’s not quite accurate. This family-owned comfort-food spot actually shuts down as soon as it runs out of food, which happened to be around 2 ...
