Check out some of Dallas’ newest, yummiest restaurants
Dugg Burger, Dallas’ latest trendy burger bar, popped up Feb. 16 in Casa Linda, East Dallas. Dugg Burger’s concept is so simple, yet so revolutionary. Carve out some of the bun so that it perfectly sandwiches the ingredients, for a mess-free meal. The menu is equally stark yet delicious: choose from burgers, fries, drinks and dessert. It’s like the simplicity of In-N-Out with many more toppings. Caramelized onions, bacon, shoestring onions, mushrooms, roasted jalapeños, and more can elevate your burger to deliciousness.
The location is the restaurant’s only piftall–East Dallas is out of the driving range for most SMU students. Should you have a desire for adventure, though, take an afternoon to explore a new neighborhood and grab a burger. With those beautiful brioche buns–you know which I mean–and a giant patty, a Dugg Burger is big enough to split with a friend.
Yolk, a breakfast-focused restaurant, opened January in the Arts District downtown. The restaurant is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the weekend. Should you have a midday craving for red velvet pancakes, chicken and waffles, or eggs Benedict, Yolk will be waiting with open arms.
Their extensive menu also includes lunch items such as salads, wraps and sandwiches. Can’t decide? Add a side such as a cinnamon roll or a cranberry orange walnut muffin.
Yolk’s only downside is the long waits during most of its operating hours. If you want to dine quick, you need to beat the crowds by arriving at 6 or 7 a.m. If you don’t mind waiting, put your name on the list and go take a walk. I don’t know about you, but I think I’ll start my Saturday with a bacon waffle.
Top Pot Doughnut’s newest location
Top Pot Doughnuts is set to open another location on Lower Greenville. The official opening date hasn’t been confirmed, but it should be sometime in March. Top Pot already has a location on Northwest Highway. The new location location promises to have a cult following among SMU students.
“This [news] is so good yet so bad, because now I will eat there every day,” said student Caroline Mendes.
These standard doughnuts aren’t outlandishly flavored, and there’re no dinosaur sprinkles or cotton candy toppings. Rather, Top Pot serves classic, well-made doughnuts, like blueberry, glazed, jelly-filled, and more. The trendy oak interior and massive glass display case makes Top Pot a better breakfast joint than most, as the atmosphere feels like you could stay all day. In fact, you can. Top Pot is open most days until 8 pm.
