Moving to Carrollton Tx from Plano, what's good and casual?

We are up for anything, love Indian, Thai, and good thin crust pizza. Any recommendations, any cuisine would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Dim sum: Hong Kong Royal @ southeast corner of Frankford & Josey

    Taqueria & Panaderia: La Tapatia @ southwest corner of Frankford & Josey (I've had excellent churros from the bakery. The tortas at the taqueria use fresh bollilo from the bakery, yum)

    Upscale Mexican: Agave Azul in historic downtown, fantastic margaritas.

    Cantonese (Chinese): First Chinese BBQ, northeast corner of Josey & Belt Line

    Peruvian rotisserie chicken: La Esperanza at Josey & George Bush. Good tres leches cake and live music on weekends.

    Sushi: Seabose Grocery, Marsh @ Trinity Mills (southwest corner), has chef on-site making sushi to go. Fresh seafood is flown in every Tues & Fri:

    Tex Mex: Mena's Tex Mex Grill, good brisket tacos.

    Colombian: Casa Vieja (same shopping center as First Chinese BBQ, also northeast corner of Josey & Belt Line.

    And of course Babe's Chicken Dinner House in downtown Carrollton for some down home comfort food.
