SLURP it up. 🍜 I love perfectly cooked noodles. And @marufukuramenfrisco’s was 👌🏼 al dente. I normally don’t even like the skinny thin kind of ramen noodles but I’d totally eat this again. What a great addition to the ramen scene... say “Welcome!” to the very first Marufuku Ramen in Texas, y’all! (Coming to us from San Fran) 👋🏼 - I was fortunate to get a media peek before opening day and I was very impressed. Every bowl served to our table was full of flavor and well executed, and service was great! 🤩 Everyone loved it! I definitely wanna go back to try more things! - Thanks for having me and my friends! 😉 I’m craving more already!
EAT ALL THE THINGS! That’s basically what we did last night at the @visitgarlandtx Downtown Garland Dine Around. 5 stops, 30 min each, and WAY too much food for us to handle! 🤩👍🏼 - I loved getting to try all the places... it was my first time exploring downtown Garland! Some of my top bites from each place 👉🏻 • Chicken Nathan - fried chicken covered in this 💣 poblano cream sauce. @main.street.cafe • Brisket Pizza - nuff said. @themillhousepizzeriaandstage • Basically anything meat from @intrinsicbrewing 😜 especially the brisket... to die for! • Bacon wrapped Shrimp - Tavern on the Square • Cinnamon Cruffin made by @lacasitabakeshop, sold at @rosalindcoffeetx 😍 Check out the whole tour currently live on my stories! - Thanks for having me, #visitgarlandtx, I will be back soon!!
SUMMERTIME. 😎 One of my favorite things about summer is all the events and activities around the city! There’s a pretty cool one happening this Thur-Sat, and you’re invited! 😉 - #Ad Thank you @ModeloUSA for the exclusive invitation to the Gold Lion Preview experience with top chefs, mixologists, and more. The pop-up is taking place from June 13th-15th in @bishopartsdistrict, and everyone is welcome to attend! All you need to do is RSVP at ModeloNegraBarbers@cogentworld.com. 👍🏼 The event is FREE! 🙌🏼 #ModeloNegraBarbers - Y’all know I don’t drink... but I’ve got my eye on some of their creative food options!! Such as Negra soft served ice cream, skull-shaped Michelada filled truffles, Beerisket Sliders, and Modelo Glazed Chicken Wings. YUM! I’ll be there Thursday night! Holler at me if you go! 😃 📍 424 W. Davis St., Dallas, 75208
Just PEACHY. It’s summer and that means it’s 🍑 season! @sprinklescupcakes June cupcake flavor is Peach Pie and it’s available until 6/30. 👍🏼 - Thanks to Sprinkles for giving me a dozen. 🙌🏼 My husband has already claimed 10 of them. 😂 They are really good tho, he may have to fight me for them. 💪🏼 - Who’s a peach fan? It’s probably one of my favorite fruits. 🙌🏼
NUTELLA Latte. Have you seen a better pairing to all the donuts you’re gonna have today? 😍 - I was late to experience @sanmartinusa in @uptowndallas so I gotta catch up and try ALL THE THINGS! But this latte is a must! And it’s only like $3!? 🤩 Unheard of in Dallas, amiright? - Have you been here? If so, what should I try next?
Just bEAT it. 😜 National Doughnut Day is Friday. Where are you gonna get your 🍩 fix? My rec... @detourdoughnuts is where it’s at. Their Beet & Ricotta donut is freaking delicious. And that color is gorgeous! 💗 It’s unlike any donut I’ve ever had. The ricotta makes it so light and fluffy! - My next favorite was the Blueberry Cardamom cake donut. That extra touch of spice completely elevated the flavors. And don’t sleep on those mini fritters either! It’s like 6 for $2 or something awesome like that. 🤩 - Can’t wait to hear what your favorite flavor is! Please share your experience when you hit up Detour!
The MIXT Movement - 6.2 million custom combination possibilities to eat healthy. 🤩 Wow! - I loved the salad creation I made when I visited @mixt at @mckinneyandolive. Romaine/arugula, golden beets, farro, radish, bacon, and more! 🥑🥗 They have plenty of their creations as well if you don’t wanna make your own. Fresh ingredients... and a MOUNTAIN of food. 😳 I had enough leftovers for 2 more meals! - If you’re still working on that summer bod, MIXT will keep your salad diet interesting. 👍🏼 Thanks for having me!
TWINKLE Twinkle Little Star 🌟 (please sing this in Darla’s voice from Finding Nemo 😜) - The actual name of this creation is “Sun, Moon & Stars” which makes me think of Game of Thrones... cuz Khaleesi calls Khal Drogo her “Sun and Stars”. Haha. Ok, second random thought over. 😂 - Creamy milk tea ice cream with notes of jasmine, oolong, and green tea. Tbh, the green tea flavor is very slight, but it was still a really good ice cream. If you like tea flavors, the Earl Grey Lavender is fantastic! 👌🏼 Will be back to try more at @cauldronicecream!
“My anaconda don’t want none, unless you got BUNS, hon!” 🎶 The pork belly buns at @jinyaramenbardallas were delicious! “I want ‘em real thick and juicy” for reals. Haha. 😜 The pork belly was oh-so-tender! - 100% would have this again. Their ramen and chashu and especially that seasoned soft boiled egg‼️ were great too. Noodles were thick and chewy! - Thanks for having me, JINYA! Go check them out in @dallasvictorypark. 🍜
BLOG. It’s such hard work to keep up with it. 😆 I promised to post once a month and I’m already pushing the deadline. But this one is EPIC, y’all... Better check it out! 🤩 - Lots of great things happened in April, including this amazing dinner at @del.friscos, and my 35th birthday! 🥳 And oh yea, it’s the 10th year of my blog, CHOMP! Woohoo, go me! 🙌🏼 - It would make me SO happy if y’all would click on that link in my bio and give this a read... or at least look at all the 🤤 pictures. Haha. I 💜 all of you that have been following over the past decade! Let’s see if I can make it another 10 more! (No promises 😜)
POOLSIDE. Who’s gonna be there this Memorial Day? 😎 That’s where I’d like to be... but I don’t have easy access to a pool. 😔 - If you’re missing pool time too, don’t fret, cuz @theadolphushotel has their Summer Cinema Series every Wednesday night at 8:30PM on their pool deck!! Admission is FREE!! 🤩 They also offer the full pool menu for this event... I highly recommend the Chips & Guac. 👍🏼 The next 2 upcoming movies are: 5/29 - Priscilla Queen of the Desert 6/5 - Weekend at Bernies ➡️ For more movies, check out their Facebook event page. It goes all the way through August! - Pro tip: go a little early to get yourself a good seat for the movie. And bring your swimsuit cuz you can totally jump in the water! 💦 Thanks, Adolphus for having us! My friends and I had “the time of our lives” at Dirty Dancing! 💃🏼🕺🏼
The HOSS - southern fried chicken, bacon, jack cheese, housemade sausage gravy, and honey butter. Between a fluffy biscuit. Yum! This was my favorite from my visit to @thebiscuit.bar earlier this week! 🤤 That honey butter is seriously money! - Congrats to The Biscuit Bar on their new location by SMU! 🎉 Next to Smoothie King. (I geotagged there cuz BB doesn’t have one yet.) 📍6501 Hillcrest Ave, Dallas - 👏🏻 Grand Opening is TODAY! “Mind your biscuits and life will be gravy!” 😉 Thanks for having me!!

All were on point and SO instagrammable! 😉 They’ll warm up that pop tart for you too...

LA LA la la la, warm it up! 🎵 Sorry Kelis, but this line applies more to this cookie than milk shakes. 😂 Served warm and chock full of chocolate chips, y’all already know this is MY favorite in town! @lalalandkindcafe - I pre-gamed National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day by getting one yesterday. 🙌🏼Soft on the inside and I lurrrv that chocolate chip to dough ratio! Where are you getting your cookie fix today? - If you’ve got cookie recs, send them my way plz!! 😉🍪😍

FLOWERS for all the moms out there! 😍🌹 And guess what! These are completely edible! 🙌🏼 That’s the best kind of flowers imo! - It was SO rewarding to create these edible “sculptures” at @inspiredtotaste’s workshop at @placeattyler a few weeks ago. Cuz they turned out so incredible!! 🤩 Thanks @threetwelveco for organizing, hosting, and feeding us! 💗 These designs were truly a work of art and it made my heart ache a little when we broke it apart to eat it. But they were delicious so then we felt better. Hahaha. - As always, partial proceeds of every workshop with Three Twelve Co goes to @thefamilyplace and lunch + mimosas included! 🤩 HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!! 💐😘
