100 Favorite Dishes, No. 41: Welsh Rarebit and Farm Egg at Meddlesome Moth
Meddlesome Moth knows that a good snack doesn't have to be complicated.
Leading up to September's Best of Dallas® 2016 issue, we're sharing (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes, the Dallas entrées, appetizers and desserts that really stuck with us this year.
Meddlesome Moth excels at two things: selecting craft beers and makin' snacks. Even the most obsessively on-the-hunt beer nerd will find a new-to-them beer on Moth's ever-changing beer list, but if you're gonna throw down on a 10 percent ABV Alvinne Phi, it's best to get some food in your belly. Moth's elevated bar snack-centric menu is excellent for sharing over a few beers.
One simple but delightful dish that's great for soaking up booze: the Welsh rarebit and farm egg ($10). Two slices of toasted sourdough are covered in Welsh rarebit, a mild, pleasantly grainy cheese sauce. Made with beer, cheese and seasonings, Welsh rarebit has been popping up on Dallas menus lately (like on the burger at Independent Bar & Kitchen) but it's just right on this hearty bread and topped with a sunny side up egg at the Moth. Slice through the yolk and let it mix with the rarebit, and sleep well tonight knowing that at least for today, you've got it all figured out.
