Hi, It’s Kat, your weather geek here. The featured image your looking at is sunset, porch view from my Fayetteville home. February brought some incredible warm weather and amazing sunsets, both in Arkansas and Texas. Due to that, I spent a huge chunk of the month at my mountain home. This is a place that offers me some much needed tranquility, spurring creativity. It was a godsend that mother nature was so kind this winter. Being in Fayetteville allowed me to gather my plans to set forth for my Texas return.
And that folks is exactly what took place. If you haven’t seen the latest boot newsy on my blog (http://katmendenhall.com/boot-newsy-so-big-it-needed-a-post/), or this VegNews story line (http://vegnews.com/articles/page.do?pageId=9092&catId=1), then you should know that BIG things are happening in Texas. I’ve totally skipped the walk phase and moving straight into running with my new concept.
I won’t lie, it’s exciting. It’s also very very scary stepping into new territory. In order to grow though (personally and professionally), we have to push our limits. There’s a lot of truth in nothing ventured nothing gained and this is a big venture ya’ll. I can’t wait to share more details in the next few weeks.
In the interim, here is what I ate out vegan in Dallas during February that was super duper good.
Last months post on what I ate out http://katmendenhall.com/top-five-things-i-ate-in-january/, I mentioned the HG Chips & Queso at HG Sply Co (http://www.hgsplyco.com/). This picture alone tells it all. The epitome of bar comfort food that’s a quasi form of healthy. The in-house made chips are addictive too.
If you haven’t had brunch at Veats Modern Vegan (http://www.v-eats.com/ ) in the Trinity Groves you’re in for a BIG treat. Portions are huge and absolutely delicious so come hungry. This dish was their chicken fried steak served with cream gravy, hash browns, & Veggs over easy. All. Vegan. When and if you figure out the Veggs over easy message me, k?
Another mention from last month was True Food Kitchen (http://www.truefoodkitchen.com/locations/dallas/). With many vegan options on the menu it can be a hard choice, but you can’t go wrong with the T.L.T. It’s one my favorite sammies in town. It’s pretty filling too so it makes a great one to share. Especially if you have one of their amazing vegan starters like Kale Guacamole.
Sometimes food looks too good to eat and this was the case with the Skinny Bitch Salad at Crushcraft Thai (http://www.crushcraftthai.com/). Seriously, that’s what they call it. It was a special on the day that I visited so call ahead to make sure it’s offered. If not, they do have a couple of items you can request vegan. It was an enormous portion, so I had leftovers for the next day.
There you have it, food envy. Eating out vegan in Dallas is easy, delicious and even beautiful.
On to March menus.
Enjoy your weekend.
