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.
Whether or not you worship at the altar of "eating clean," HG Sply Co., which has locations in both Dallas and Fort Worth, makes damn fine food, and the view from the rooftop patio definitely doesn't suck.
Another thing that doesn't suck: the The True Grit, a heaping bowl filled with poblano-cauliflower "grits," sauteed rainbow chard with mushrooms, caramelized onion and an herb salad. Every time we've ordered this dish, the salmon is cooked to buttery perfection, and the cauliflower "grits" taste deceptively indulgent, a true testament to the versatility of this cruciferous treat. It's also a testament to the talent in HG Sply Co.'s kitchen — this healthy-but-not-too-healthy eatery makes eating clean feel like a piece of cake.
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.
