In honor of the 2017 Best of Dallas® issue, on newsstands now, we're sharing (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes, the Dallas entrées, appetizers and desserts that really stuck with us this year.

Are we really recommending that you eat mushroom toast at a motorcycle repair shop? We sure are, and you'd be crazy not to give this delightful snack a try.

Echoing the toast menu at its sister cafe, Local Press + Brew, next door, Local Moto has a small menu of snacky toasts with one woodsy standout: a wild mushroom toast dripping in butter. If we didn't know any better, one bite into this toast we'd have thought we were eating a delightful hunk of meat. These perfectly cooked mushrooms have the heft and richness of a fine slab of medium-rare beef, but there's no meat on this rustic toast. Instead, an array of sautéed mushrooms is served with a slab of butter melting into the thick-cut bread.

It's quick, it's simple, it's buttery and it's certainly the best snack you'll find at a vintage motorcycle repair shop.

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.
