I love getting something for (almost) nothing... Don't you?
The cover of April’s Texas Monthly magazine promises “Free Food! (Almost.)” and Patricia Sharpe’s feature, “How to Eat Well in Hard Times” definitely delivers. Her selection of exceptional, economical restaurant meals from across the state includes four picks from right here in Big D:
1. Grilled Pork Over Vermicelli with Green Papaya from Bistro B
2. The Fried Chicken Dinner from Bubba’s
3. The Beef-and-Cheese Cachapa from Zaguán Latin Café and Bakery
4. Chicken Potpie from Cowboy Chow
My mouth is already watering. Has anyone tried any of these dishes? If so, how do they rate on *your* cheapskate gourmet scale? Some of her picks from other cities also looked tempting - I'll definitely reference this article on my next trip to Austin or Houston or even Fort Worth (but I'll let you pick up your own copy for those).
