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.

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.
