Aaaaaand………. back to Texas ‘la segunda parte’ (part two).
- Dallas has a very vibrant and modern dining scene. We ate some pretty amazing food and indulged in some very, very good cocktails while there. One place in particular I will very happily recommend is ‘Savor’ located 2000 Woodall Rodgers Fwy. Savor really is a super modern ‘gastropub’. Great fresh food, sharing plates (because food really is a social thing!) and great cocktails with a modern twist. We sat up at their fabulous bar and luckily had a hip dude named Blake as our mixologist/waiter. Loved the cocktails he made ‘Doctors Orders’ (Prairie Gin, butternut tincture, ginger syrup and curry) and the ’15 and counting…’ (Prairie Gin (there was a theme), fernet branca, basil syrup, fresh lime, dolin blanc and black pepper). Could not recommend Savor more highly.
- Klyde Warren Park – an urban open green space right in the heart of the city. This is a wonderful 5.2 acre park , built over the Woodall Rodgers Freeway, is a socially enriching space offering food trucks, a dog park, green lawns and trees, a reading room, games, restaurants, fountains, sculptures, gardens, a children’s park and so much more. We happily wandered through on a Saturday afternoon, eating our way through the immense selection from the food trucks and basically just relaxing, chilling out and enjoying.
- Fort Worth Stock Yards – If you ever find yourself in Texas, (and I hope that you do) you must head on out to the city of Fort Worth. We caught the train from Dallas to Fort Worth (approximately a one hour trip) then headed by bus out to the Stock Yards. It is well worth investing a day out in the stock yards where you can visit the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Stockyards Museum, Stockyards Station, the Cattlemen’s Steak House and where you will see a herd of Texas Long Horn cattle being driven down the historic streets of Fort Worth.
Part III to follow…….. xx
