Wow... it's already been 2 weeks since I was in Vegas. This month is flying by! And almost Christmas!! :)
Last week I went with some friends to
Meddlesome Moth (in the Design
District). They had recently changed
chefs...now currently the chef that used
to be at Screen Door (which closed).
Thought we'd go and check it out!
1621 Oak Lawn Ave.
Dallas, TX 75207
We had to sit outside since there was a
long wait inside. Luckily it wasn't too
cold out... Their patio seating is quite
We got several dishes to share.
Pig and Fig (pork belly, blue cheese
grits and bbq fig) $12~
This sounded so
good. But if you are not a fan of blue
cheese, this is not for you. I can
tolerate blue cheese and it was still a
little stinky for me. haha. But the pork
belly was fried nicely and fatty. The
combination of the blue cheese grits and
fig was a bit strange. Personally I
wouldn't get this again, but if you love
blue cheese and fatty pork, this is the
dish for you!
Nueske's Bacon Lollipops (with funnel
cake and maple hollandaise) $12~
was totally yummy. For those who like
the sweet and savory combo. The pork
belly almost had an Chinese roast pork
flavor. YUM! The funnel cake was a bit
too crispy but the hollandaise was
amazing! Sweet from the maple and paired
so well with the funnel cake.
Zucchini Chips (Mediterranean sea salt)
A waiter walked by with this as we
were ordering. It smelled so good so we
got one too. It was disappointing. The
slices of zucchini were so thin that it
just felt like we were eating grease. It
disintegrated in my mouth as soon as I
put it in there and just felt greasy. :(
Toasted Mushroom Farro (with Grana
I really wanted to try
this. I've seen Giada make farro a lot
on Food Network but I've never had it. I
liked it a lot. It's kind of like a fat
brown rice. It's all about the texture
and I'm all about that!
Chocolate Pecan Pie.
My friend ordered
this. I think they change their desserts
daily so they didn't have a dessert
menu. There was a thick layer of
chocolate under the top crust. It was
super yummy. I'm not a fan of Pecan pie,
but if it's Chocolate pecan pie, that's
another story! :P
It wasn't as great as my first dining
experience at Meddlesome Moth. But we
also ordered completely different
things. So I don't know... might just be
hit or miss.
