1. CAFE MADRID
After living in Spain for three months, I had a serious craving for Spanish food and Café Madrid in Dallas immediately brought back the flavors and memories of the place I called home for a short time. Their happy hour is the best time to go to try multiple dishes! Make sure to try the Tortilla Espanola, croquetas, albondigas, and pulpo.
Afrika Fusion is a combination of several African countries, but this Dallas restaurant is a place where you can get delicious Kenyan dishes — Nairobi Karanga, Ng’ombe Beef Stew, Chips Mayai, and more. My favorite is definitely the Nyama Choma, which you can eat with ugali or chipati. Don’t be afraid to eat with your hands!
This Richardson restaurant serves a mixture of Persian and Afghan dishes. They pride their distinctly Persian and Afghan décor and traditional and authentic dishes.
They serve a popular Persian dish: Fesnejan — a pomegranate and walnut chicken which is worth the trip. I’m obsessed over this unique dish that’s hard to describe. You have to try it for yourself! For those who haven’t had Persian food before, Kasra also has a buffet so you can try multiple dishes.
Irving boasts one of the highest percentage of different nationalities in one zip code, so you’re sure to find an array of incredibly diverse restaurants in this city.
One of them is Everest Indian and Himilayan Restaurant and Grill, where you can get a taste of the Himalayas with dishes like puffed rice and pickled vegetables. I’m so glad I got to try it! For people who aren’t too adventurous, they have momos which are basically Nepalese dumpling. For those who are more adventurous, you have to try the Tash — goat cubes!
