Dallas: The Foodie Who Ate on 54th Street

I had the privilege to spent some time with great company while spending the night in Dallas. There are cities where you can survive alone, and there are cities where… you won’t survive alone. And so, being able to reconnect with “Binta” was such a great, refreshing experience.

Dallas 1

We went to have brunch at 54th street (Restaurant/Drafthouse) and just to give you heads up (the address was a little bit confusing, because you can access the place from two different streets, but rest assured: it’s the same restaurant/drafthouse).

The place had a typical texan decor which, above anything else, shouldn’t be surprising. It was interesting, though, to see how much effort ย they put in it.

Overall, I was pleasantly pleased with the food options. I can’t remember what I ordered, but as you can see, though tired, I was pleasantly happy.

Have you eaten at 54th Street before? What were your thoughts/impressions? I’d love to know.

In the meantime, if you’re planning to visit Dallas soon, here are some of my essential tips๐Ÿ˜Ž

Essential Tips for Visiting Dallas:ย 

  1. Travel with someone: the city is way too huge, and you might get bored alone
  2. If you can drive, rent a car: anyone else who has lived in Texas would support this. Otherwise, your experience will be a disaster.
  3. If you have friends/family/acquaintances/even enemies there, reconnect: not only is it good to keep in touch with people, but it makes a difference if you have someone from there who actually takes you around. I had never been to Dallas, but I have been to Houston and it seems to me that this is something very peculiar to Texas: the cities are huge, transportation system is not conducive to public transport, and everybody drives. So if you really have no one there, then you’ll be stuck with Ubers and Cabs for your entire trip.

  1. Thanks for the tips on Dallas. I’ve visited Houston before and it’s a desperately unwalkable city so I can relate to that! Food is excellent though, so hopefully I’ll get to Dallas one day. Also a fan of Austin, San Antonio, and Texas generally. So many adventures to be had. #citytripping
