Grand Lux Café

If you are from Dallas you know that Grand Lux Café is a nice place to eat at. It is not the most upscale place but it is pretty decent it is connected to one of our best and known malls named the Galleria.

(before we start let me remind you I have been a waitress for 3 years and currently working on my minor degree in hospitality management so I do have an idea how the restaurant business works)

ok so BOOM!…..

Lets start with the waitress I can not call her by her name cause I do not know it and I’m guessing she did not feel the need to share it!  MISTAKE #1

She was not personable at all and hardly said anything HELL I don’t even think she said, “are you guys ready to order”. I believe we had to tell her what we wanted to order. We can make that apart of mistake #1 just to cut her some slack.

I ordered the Shrimp Scampi Linguine ….


Doesn’t it look so good? Don’t be fooled like I was cause it wasn’t! Not only was it not good my food came out 5-10 min after the rest of the table. As a server or chef you know that it is most important for food to come out at the same time. While waiting for my food I did not receive a notice or an apology about the wait! MISTAKE #2

At this point I was over it all and informed the waitress that I did not like the food and she can inform the manager that it took too long for it not to be good. She did not ask me if I would like something else nor did the manager come to the table for a follow up. MISTAKE #3

Finally..

I ask another waitress to bring the manager over when he came I informed him about the service and he simply apologize in the simplest manner as he could which slightly irritated me. He also informed me that the pasta will be taking off, as if  I was going to pay for it anyways.

if you have not guess by now… I WILL NOT BE ATTENDING GRAND LUX AGAIN !!

Zenna’s

Happy hour not so Happy

You can ask anybody I have been dying to go to Zenna’s  for their happy hour! The deals are to good to be true and to my dismay it was exactly to good to be true! My guest felt the exact same which was a little embarrassing because when I invite people out I like to make a good impression but I came to conclusion it was Zenna’s fault, not mine.

The amazing prices!

Not so Amazing food and drinks!

The sushi was mediocre and believe me I have had really good sushi. The drinks were watered down and taste like medicine may I add my guest and I all got different drinks. I can usually take the pain and drink or eat something I don’t like but this was unbearable I had to return it !

Oh but the dessert !

The last thing I put my faith in was the dessert. Surprisingly it was the best thing, we had fried banana and fried ice cream. I want to say it was breaded with coconut which is perfect because I love coconut!

(I would really like to add I did not go to the original Zenna’s which is located downtown. I went to the location in North Dallas)

In a nut a shell GO THERE AT YOUR OWN RISK! I plan to try the Downtown one.

 

Sissy’s Southern Kitchen

Sissy’s with my Sissy

I have so much to say about Sissy’s Southern Kitchen. Let’s start with the hospitality, soon as I walked in the host and PR/Restaurant director greeted me with such enthusiasm. They made me feel like I’ve been knowing them for a long time. Next the waitress was very well spoken and eloquent.

If you know me or have read my past post, you know I always get “chicken & waffles” so this day I decided to get “chicken & waffles”.
Soon as I bit into the chicken it taste just like someone’s grandmother would make w/ a hint of heaven ! Now I’m not to big on waffles I’m more of a pancake person. With that being said, the pancakes were not all that.(but it wasn’t them it’s me)
Of coarse I had to get a Mamosa I like how they gave me a choice of pineapple or orange juice!

I highly recommend this place especially for brunch or just for some Deep South home cooking!

Truck Yard

This place seriously made me feel like I walked into a backyard party! My boyfriend and I went on a Wednesday night and it was packed. I wonder how it looks on a Friday or Saturday night. With that being said, the atmosphere was lively & great to be in.

image

The drinks were over priced Especially for the sizes!! I got the drink that sounded most “different” which was the “frozen trash can punch”it was $6.83 for this size ….

image

After a Drink I sent my boyfriend for food and he came back with this….

imageAnd omg it was so good! It was like a Philly cheese steak setup. It came with steak, cheese, and jalapeños!

The Truck Yard also had frozen custard ! So why not try it right?!?!

imageThis is a “Tricked up” ice cream cone called “Sojourner” it had brownie pieces, Oreo crumbs, and Carmel ! Yum yum!

i seriously can not wait to go back to the Truck Yard! Who wants to join me?

EatZi’s

This morning I went to have breakfast I decided to go to EatZi’s because it was in the area of my doctors office(I went to the doctor this Morning). EatZi’s is a bakery // deli , so all the food is made fresh ! I saw some really good/ fresh looking food there. I had an omelette which was made to order and a kolache. Omg the kolache was so good. The omelette was good but the cook put bell peppers in it and I hate bell peppers!!!
I would defiantly go back to get something for breakfast or lunch.
