asian trade district area harry hines and royal


We are staying at the Omni at Park West next weekend. I know from past experience that the Asian Trade District is close. Any dining recommendations for this area? Lunch or dinner.

      Looks like a great place. Thank you. Any thoughts on the ethnic restaurants in the area?

        It's been many years since I worked over there. The only ethnic place I remember is still there--Las Brisas. I loved that they still served Dr Pepper in the bottle (with a glass of ice).

        If you want to try a steak place, you're close to Pappas Bros. there. Their Pappacito's is pretty good for Tex-Mex too.

          And, Pappas BBQ. The Pappas Bros. steakhouse is one of the best in Dallas.
          Over on Harry Hines Blvd. at Royal Lane there are tons of Korean restaurants in little "Korea Town".
          Ask in your hotel.

            I checked out the Pappas BBQ menu. Looks good. And good thought on asking the hotel folks for a Korean rec. Thank you.

              Korea House. Corner of Royal and Harry Hines. Broad menu of street food, sushi, with some Pan Asian dishes thrown in.

                Looks like a great spot for lunch. Thanks.

            twin makes a good point ... I didn't explain Pappas Bros. D Magazine ranked it #1 steakhouse in Dallas last year, and it's my favorite steakhouse. Their lobster is also very good, and their soups tend to be excellent. I believe their house salad features bacon (they are no slouches with the red meat), and it is quite good. Their peanut butter chocolate cake is TDF.

            I ate at Pappas BBQ only once, and maybe I chose badly ... my selection was very meh. Also tried their burger place only once, with similar results (don't recall if they have one of those on NW Hwy or not).

              May not make the steakhouse on this trip (kids in tow). But will keep it in mind for the next trip. The menu is awesome and your descriptions are mouth watering.
