Sloppy Seconds: The Carnivore's Dilemma
Meat, in its many exotic forms, took center stage this week in local food writing, from steak tartare and meat loaf in the Morning News food reviews, to meatballs and veggie-friendly (but primarily meat-serving) restaurants on City of Ate.
The Week in Review(s):
- Your own Dallas Observer: Lemongrass is the site of this week's review, where Dave finds the spring rolls excellent, but the servers loyal to a fault.
Dallas Morning News: Leslie Brenner finds the rabbit "lusty, tender and delicious" at Adelmo's Ristorante. Also, contributor Kim Pierce says everything would be just fine at Po-Bill's Cafe, if only everything tasted like the meat loaf.
Highlights from City of Ate:
Dude Food: Fireside Pies
The dude's trip to Fireside takes off in the comments section, as debate rages over the proper application of meatballs on a pizza.
