It took me three years to find it, but I finally did. Tucked away in Oak Cliff, a neighborhood of Dallas, there is a lively, artsy area called Bishops Arts District. It has yummy food, cute boutiques, and a trendy clientele. Here are my favorites from the area:
Dude Sweet Chocolate
I always thought gourmet chocolate places were cool and everything, but I never understood how they could be amazing until I tried Dude Sweet’s chocolate. They add the weirdest flavors- like salami and mushroom to dark chocolate and it tastes…amazing. Literally like an explosion of flavor in your mouth. It’s unbelievable. I bought the “fruity crack”, which is just cherries and other fruits covered by dark chocolate- nice and simple, but perfect. The great thing about this place is that the let you sample everything- which is every kid’s dream. Just sayin’. Check it out.
Ok so I waited for 45 minutes to have brunch here on Sunday. Worth it. I sure did wonder if all of the customers drove all the way out there just to have brunch, though. I ordered the chicken and waffles and the beignets. The beignets were definitely something else; they had a real honey glaze and lemon juice, which gave them a very unique flavor. The chicken was mighty tender, too. As a brunch foodie (and all meals foodie), I would say that this is my favorite brunch place in Dallas.
