Food is an art as my grandma always said. It's mastering techniques. But it also is passion, creativity, presentation, and flavor. I started this review page in hopes of sharing my favorite places to dine and share my experiences with new restaurants. If you know me you know I am no picky eater. (There are some limits!) I also tend to roam top restaurants all the time and feel the need to share my experience. So what better way than my blog.
The first ever Reviewing Dallas' Best is below. Thank you to my readers who made this happen! Lets eat!
After a long morning my brother and I hit Casa Linda around 2/3pm on Sunday. The first thing we noticed was the atmosphere. A cute place, with staff that was on top of every table. Faste service and smiles was seen through out the resturant.
Drinks: We ordered "Horchata". This is probably one of my all time favorite drinks. (ever) It is hard to fidn a place that makes it right. Where the taste isn't overpowered by sweet or watered down. I have to say Casa Linda nailed it on the head. Welcomed me with a bang.
Starter: Salvadorian street food is one of my favorite things on this earth. Casa Linda brought the taste of street food to the elegant plates of fine dining. Platanos fritos are hard to tackle. Although my family and I are Mexican we love making platanos fritos. These were the best I have tasted EVER. Even my brother who won't come near a plantains, loved these. 10/10.
Entree: The menu in itself was divine and filled with tons of plates I would love to try in the near future. We stuck with some basic platters because if you can nail a simple dish, you got it. Sam had pork and cheese pupsas. These were su
rprisingly amazing. I took Sam along for the ride because he is the pickiest eater I know. He tells it how it is. Seeing him devour the meal shocked me. Portions were huge and so filling. (Neither of us finished our food) I had the carne asada. My grandpa always said you can judge a person by the way they cook their steak. I'm not a huge meat person, as we all know. If you know me personally you know I won't eat steak unless my grandpas has cooked it. I have to say I will be back for this carne asada. It was the perfect combination of tender and juicy. 10/10.
Overall , the food is to die for. I would say don't judge a book by its cover, but that is too cliche. There is some renovating to do, but their is potential. (keep in mind its a new place) I highly reccomend checking this chic Salvadorian resturant... whether you are a tourist or a local. 4/5.
One Last Thing: Have an empty belly when you enter Casa Linda! You will leave unbuttoning your pants. lol!
