Foodie Friday: Masala Wok

Hi Foxy People! Happy February. We are 1 month down in the new year. Did it seem like January was the longest month ever or is it just me? lol.

We’ve been weathering chilly temps here in Dallas. Obviously, Dallas weather is no comparison to the temps in the Midwest, but it’s truly Winter here in Texas. On this “Foodie Friday” , I wanted to highlight one of my go to spots when I want something comforting and warm. Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE Indian food. When I found this gem while I was shopping in Frisco, let’s just say it was love at first sight. Check out my review on Masala Wok below!


Masala Wok


Things to know

  • The restaurant is split between two cuisines. You have a full Indian food menu and Asian food menu. To be honest, the Indian side has been so good, that I haven’t even tried the other one. Terrible right! lol. I will get to it one day.
  • They have multiple locations in the DFW area. If you don’t feel like commuting all the way to Frisco, you can always enjoy the Richardson or Irving locations.
  • They have Gluten Free and Vegan Menus as well. That’s right, they cover all of your dietary bases at this restaurant.

Fan Favorite

  • My go to dish every single time that I go there is…. Malai Kofta. It is a dish made of golden, vegetable balls that are filled with potatoes, carrots, cabbage, paneer, peas, & cauliflower that is bathed in the most delicious, silky onion-tomato cream sauce. It comes with a side of basmati rice and naan. You can get all of this for $10!
  • In second place, if you are in the mood for a wrap, I suggest getting the Tandoori Wrap made with Paneer. It’s naan bread with mozzarella cheese, cilantro, red onions, & tomatoes served with a side salad and tikka masala. So good!

Stay Foxy!

Foodie Friday: Ziziki’s Restaurant

Hi Foxy People! It’s another beautiful “Foodie Friday” . This week, I want to highlight another brunch spot in Dallas. I was able to celebrate a friend’s birthday. I love when I have an excuse to try a new place, especially Greek food! It’s a favorite of mine. Check out my review on Ziziki’s Restaurant below!


Ziziki’s Restaurant


Things to know

  • The restaurant is split between two buildings. The have a main area where the brunch setup is and tables. There is another building right across the walkway that they own as well and it is where the larger parties are seated.
  • The omelette and eggs benedict option is available, you just have to order it through your waiter or waitress. Don’t worry, it is still included in the buffet setup.
  • The mimosas are 10 cents for the starter glass and then bottomless mimosas after that.

Fan Favorite

  • I had a great amount of options on the buffet line, which was good.
  • I really enjoyed the White Cold Pasta made with mushrooms, zucchini, squash, artichokes, mayo, basil, Feta cheese, diced tomatoes. It was so good, I got 2 helpings. No worries, I balanced it out with fresh fruit on my plate.

Stay Foxy!

Foodie Friday: Peckish Pies

Hi Foxy People! I’ve been a little MIA enjoying time with my family for the holidays. I wanted to at least share a little something for my “Foodie Friday” series. This week, I want to highlight a pie place that I was able to try at one of the blogger events I attended. Peckish Pies is your one stop shop for mini pies. Check out my review below on these cute, little gems!


Peckish Pies


Things to know

  • There isn’t a physical location for these pies. You have to order them online. Honestly, we order everything else online. Why not order treats as well? Added bonus, there is a 10% discount happening as we speak. Use “THANKS18” for the code.
  • Order requirements exist, but they make sense. You must order a minimum of four pies of the flavor of your choice. I admit, you wouldn’t want to only order 1 mini pecan pie at $4.50. Shipping alone costs more than that amount. You should want to order at least four to get your money’s worth.
  • Order 2 days in advance. They mention to allow 24 – 48 hours on the website, but give them and yourself more cushion time. Especially, with it being the holidays.

Fan Favorite

  • Although I do love that they offer a variety of savory and sweet pies, my favorite has to be, “The Old Fashioned.”
  • The Old Fashioned – Classic Pecan Pie with Chunks of Chocolate and a Splash of Bourbon. Who doesn’t like a little liquor in their desserts? So good! I also, love the fact that the pecans don’t take over the pie. There are just a few on the top.

Stay Foxy!

Foodie Friday: Tupelo Honey

Hi Foxy People! It’s another wonderful “Foodie Friday.” This week, we are covering a special occasion. It was my Grandy’s birthday last Saturday! I was so happy that she decided to her special day with me and mama in the Big D. Of course I had to show her a good time, right! This meant we were going to all of the new attractions that she missed the last time she visited. The Frisco Star was at the top of the list. I must admit, this was my excuse to finally try a restaurant I’ve been wanting to try for months, Tupelo Honey . It worked out great because it was food that reminded her of home. Nailed it! Take a look at my review below of this southern, comfort restaurant.


Tupelo Honey


Things to Know

  • Tupelo Honey has roots in the Carolina mountains. That’s where they receive their inspiration and recipes.
  • It’s best to make a reservation. We decided to make a reservation that night and it worked in our favor. The place filled up quickly. Also, this is the only place I’ve been to where all members of your party do not have to be in present before you can be seated. Parking was a nightmare that night, so thank God! lol
  • Their menu covers all dietary lifestyles, while staying true to Southern roots. They have so many Vegan and Vegetarian options. If you are Pescatarian, no problem. They have seafood options. For those who love fried chicken, they have a variety of their famous fried chicken. We can all enjoy a meal here!

Fan Favorite

  • Hands down, the best meal option for me and my veggie peeps was the Farm Fresh Vegetable Plate. It was great because you get to try 4 of their side options for around $15. Not bad! My options were Basil & Butter Green Beans (wasn’t a fan), Cheesy Potato Gratin with Biscuit Crumbles (so good!), Mixed Greens Salad (loved their house dressing), and Roasted Maple & Sage Root Vegetables (great flavors). Everything was great to me except for the green beans. I understand the process of shocking them in the cold water to stop the cooking and keeping the color, but I expected to taste more of the warm basil butter and salt. I may give it a try again in the future. 

Stay Foxy!
