Can't believe this thread is not longer than it is.

Surface has been barely scratched. So many options available in the Dallas area in regards to a particular ethnic cuisine and the available permutations...no right or wrong opinion!

love the crawfish boil. Problem is the line is at least 2-3 hours long if you are not there at the open.

Went to Malai last weekend (first time) and really liked it. I'm usually wary of fusion stuff but it was excellent, imo. Interesting take on IPA (sorry, Thai-PA). because of the location I was not sure it would be spicy enough, but after I requested the maximum, it was plenty spicy. We'll go back.

Hutchins in Frisco is great BBQ.
The Royale for burgers its in West Plano Village. Uses only Waigyu beef which has great flavor, try the sundae ice cream desert its awesome.
Mi Dia in same West Plano Village. Great Mexican from Mexico City area, which is a new variety to me. Also has New Mexican food which is one I enjoy on occasion.
Lavendou for country French. was there again for Mothers day and the food all 5 of us had was great as uaual

The places I miss the most in the Dallas area are:

-Bangkok City and Asian Mint for Thai
-That one Singaporean restaurant where we used to get curry crab--Red Lion maybe?
-Abacus
-La Duni
-Fuel city tacos and elotes


Lots of good pizza places, too.
