New to Area (DFW) - Craving Good Ethnic Food
- QueenB Sep 8, 2006 01:33 AM
I've been going through the archives and haven't seen much about my area. I moved to the Hurst-Euless-Bedford area a week ago from Philly and I'm already craving some good ethnic foods such as Chinese, Japanese (sushi!) and Indian. I know the Mexican places are plentiful and I plan to try out a lot, but I need my other ethnic!
Can anyone help me with recommendations for good sushi, Indian or Chinese in this Euless area? Or any other ethnic recommendations? Also, what's the best pizza in town?
I know, a lot of questions for one post, but I'm a bit lost for the moment. I'm willing to travel to Dallas or Fort Worth, but I absolutely would love more recommendations closer to home, since I'm pretty unfamiliar with the area.
Thank you so much!
I used to work in the H-E-B area, so we'd eat at the following:
You're in luck if you like Thai.
Thai Papaya Garden in Euless is excellent. 1201 W Airport Fwy, Ste 100, Euless. 817-684-9378.
There is also Sweet Basil in Hurst near North East Mall which is good. 977 Melbourne Rd, Hurst. 817-268-2899
Thai Jasmine in Bedford isn't as great as the others, but still good. 3104 Harwood Rd, Bedford. 817-858-0555
A little further out but good is Sukhothai. This is a great dinner place as you can BYOB. They are in Arlington near I30. 423 Fielder North Plaza. 817-860-4107
For excellent Indian food, there is Kababish in Bedford. 3508 Harwood Rd, #202, Bedford. 817-355-5000
Also good for Indian is Tandoor in Arlington (in the same strip center as Suckhothai) which has an above average lunch buffet.
If you like Vietnamese, try Miss Saigon Cafe. It's not the best Vietnamese, but I think it's the only one around H-E-B. 932 Melbourne Av, Hurst. 817-595-0137.
For the BEST Vietnamese, try venturing out to Haltom City. It's really not too far away, and they have a ton of fantastic Vietnamese restaraunts there. My favorite is MyLan. They have one of the longest menus that I've ever seen. 4015 E Belknap St, Haltom City. 817-222-1471
For mexican, don't miss Esparza's Tequila Factory & Grill in Bedford. http://www.esparzastequilafactory.net/
For sushi, I agree with Piranha in Arlington.
For Chinese, I'd venture out to Arlington and try First Chinese B-B-Q. 2214 S Collins St. 817-469-8876
If you like Lebanese, venture out to Fort Worth to Hedary’s Lebanese Restaurant. 3308 Fairfield Av, FW. 817-731-6961
Webra1, thank you for all of that information. I've never had Vietnamese food, but am always willing to try just about anything. There are so many places to try around here! Coming from the small town that I did, it's quite shocking and a bit overwhelming, but I don't think I'll have difficulty trying them all!
pizza possibilities, first being best and going down from there:
Palio’s in colleyville ... thin crust, very good, la-dee-da
ti amo in hurst
little joe’s in keller (Chicago style
not quite as good but geographically desirable: Café Amore
boppa’s – an upscale cici’s
Thank you teegee.
If you don't mind me asking, what is Cici's? I passed one the other day going to the grocery store. Is it any good, or should I just stay away? What about Mr. Jim's? Is that more on the scale of Domino's (which I dislike).
I've heard from a local that I may have difficulty finding the same type of pizza here in Texas as I had in PA, but I'm not sure I believe that...
Kirk, you forgot to mention the operative data: it's a $3.99 all-you-can-eat pizza place. ($3.99 or thereabouts.) once a year, it's not such a bad thing for $3.99, even if it means sitting next to a hugely obese fellow w/ 35 slices of pizza stacked on his plate
you're right about the soccer teams, though. avoid them like the plague
Hey, give it a try, but don't limit yourself to what they serve... You can order anything you want! Their chicken garlic parmisan tastes OK, but I add mushrooms. Also I order a deep dish veggie with added jalepenios and green olives with red sauce (not their cheese sauce veggie (blah)) They also have a small fresh salad bar so for $3.99 it can be satisfying if you order what you want (which they will bring to your table while you enjoy a salad first). Also quality varies from store to store try the one in NRH (North Richland Hills). If you like it crispy say so and they will double cook it... Off the hot plates the quality is so-so as stated, but wait a few minutes and they'll make some decent pizza...
