Leading up to September's Best of Dallas® 2017 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.
A dark Deep Ellum bar seems like a strange place to find hearty Hungarian fare, but that's just part of the charm at Armoury D.E. You may not be able to pronounce much of the menu — fasirt, gulyas and hortobagyi palacsinta — but it hardly matters. Point if you have to; this food is worth it.
One of our favorite bar snacks is the rantott sajt, a firm, Hungarian-style white cheese that's breaded, fried and served with a sweet lingonberry jam and a creamy white truffle sauce flecked with black truffle. It hits all the marks: fried, cheesy, sweet, creamy. It's bad for you in the best possible way, and when paired with Armoury's killer cocktails, it's a damn fine afternoon treat enjoyed on the art-filled back patio.
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.
