Restaurants are opening faster in Dallas than any mere human can keep up with. If you're looking to get out of a dining rut, here are four new eateries that deserve your attention.
Kabul native Afifa Nayeb, whose "Silk Road fare" stand, Laili, has proven to be one of the Dallas Farmers Market's best, has a new outpost at the market's food hall: 8 Cloves, dedicated to northern Indian food with a strong leaning toward vegetarian offerings. Try the eggplant bharta ($8), tender roasted eggplant with a light yogurt sauce and bell pepper slices.
Reyna Duong has evolved her sold-out banh mi pop-ups into a new takeout window in The Cedars where you'll find authentic banh mi made with everything from housemade Vietnamese pork sausage to ginger tofu. Whatever you do, don't skip Duong's phenomenal coconut variation on Vietnamese iced coffee.
