The Sunrise at Local Press + Brew
1605 N. Beckley Ave.
Espresso, fresh orange juice and ice may not sound like three things that belong in the same glass, but Local Press' Sunrise is shockingly delicious and delivers a caffeinated boost that'll get you through even the cloudiest morning.

Chicken Moto's Texas-Korea fusion is most apparent in the elotes, made with Korean pepper-spiced mayonnaise and cotija cheese.

2069 N. Central Expressway, Richardson
The team behind Bbbop took their most popular dish — Korean fried chicken — and opened a Richardson restaurant based around the sweet fried morsels. The Korean-Southern fusion spot has fun touches like Korean elotes and kimchi queso.

At Poke Bop, a new Oak Lawn restaurant designed "with Instagram in mind," you can try a typical poke bowl or opt for a (currently off-menu but still available) poke doughnut, where a circular base of rice is topped with vegetables, raw fish and seasoning.
