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.
Company Cafe has catered to resource-conscious, health-minded day-drinkers since it opened in 2011, and you'll do well to pair your a.m. Champagne with the Deep Bowl. Cubed sweet potatoes step in for standard potatoes O'Brien and are mixed with your favored flavor of red meat (pick the bison). It's topped with an avocado half and eggs served your way. Empty the side order of salsa over the whole dish, stir it all together and take a lovin' spoonful of deconstructed paleo omelette. The salsa lends just enough kick to set off the eggs from the sweet starchy potatoes, which in turn get an assist from the cool avocado. The meat is just the icing on the cake.
Despite being delicious, the Deep Bowl makes for a pretty balanced breakfast. Each ingredient is as natural and local as possible, and the recipe has the ideal fat-to-carb ratio to keep you going through at least late afternoon. Hell, if you can keep an eye on your mimosa intake, you could have the most productive post-brunch ever.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
