After two years of planning, collaborating and really getting to know Uptown, Food Tours of America is finally opening to the public. As of June 9th, visitors to Dallas and locals will be able to savor the unique taste of Dallas as they stroll along historic and chic Uptown avenues taking in both new views and knowledge about Dallas. Food Tours guides are knowledgeable, “love food and love Dallas.”
Featured restaurants include Sfuzzi, known for its fresh and innovative Italian foods, presents their Portobello Mushroom Fries with tomato basil aioli sauce, Texas farm raised Bacon & Egg Pizzas, and sip “Frozen Sfuzzis,” prosecco and white peach nectar dream for the lips, known as one of Dallas’ best.
Other stops include The Stand, although new to Uptown, has already solidified its spot as a tempting culinary odyssey. The first indoor gourmet food truck to the area whips up Southern treats like “Mac Daddy Dogs”wrapped in bacon, deep fried, topped with macaroni & cheese, chili, queso, and an onion ring; and fried Hostess Twinkies powdered with sugar and drizzled with chocolate sauce. A staple in the Uptown dining scene for the past quarter century, Primo’s Tex Mex Grille, exemplifies good Tex-Mex. Leaving no tastebud spared, tour guests will sample Primo’s deep fried giant Chicken & Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos, Cheese Enchiladas and Chicken Enchiladas Suizas, washed down with a top-notch frozen margarita.
Dallasites have spoken and claimed Bread Winners Café & Bakery best in brunch, offering tidbits of their famous Cake Ball Confections. Finally, attendees will visit Bailey’s Uptown Inn, acharming, family-run bed & breakfast in the State Thomas Historic District to refresh themeselves after their pedestrian journey with Texas sweet iced tea or hot coffee from a Texas roaster.
This tour is like a best of show competition for food and should not be missed by foodies, visitors and locals who need a fresh taste of what Dallas calls food. Come hungry and eager to dip into the true taste of Dallas.
