Local Sugar: Wisteria

Hey there! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It was beautiful here in Dallas and we had a first feeling of fall (AKA- it wasn’t 98 degrees ūüôā ). It was awesome!

One really fun thing about contributing to Local Sugar Dallas is having an excuse to try Dallas area restaurants and explore some of the great local shops! A few weeks ago I shared another Local Sugar story on Ten Ramen and today I want to share one about a store called Wisteria! It is a huge store with home goods fitting for any style and budget. For non-Dallasites, it’s near Love Field, so you can stop by easily if you are flying in or out of that airport! Hope you enjoy!


Wisteria Home Store Dallas

Near Love Field, there is a shopping destination with furniture, home accessories, jewelry, and gifts galore. This gem is called Wisteria, and it has a fun, eclectic combination of modern, traditional, colorful, and vintage items that will catch your eye. No matter your style, you are sure to find something that would look great in your home.

Local Sugar: Ten Ramen Review

Would everyone who loves ramen please stand up? How delicious is that bowl of broth and noodles? It can be the ultimate comfort food and you can get totally creative with it. But, I should confess something: I had never had an authentic bowl of ramen until I wrote a review of a new ramen shop in Dallas called Ten Ramen! I’m happy to say that it was everything I dreamed it would be! I slurped to my heart’s content and there may or my not have been proof of my slurping on my blouse. Whoops!

Four Corners Brewery Tour

4 Corners BrewThis past weekend, William and I took advantage of a free brewery tour at Four Corners Brewery in the Dallas Oak Cliff neighborhood! Four Corners began with a little friendly competition between Dallas home brewers and some of the guys there decided to join forces. A few years later, the brewery with the rooster was born! You may be wondering, “What’s the deal with the rooster?” Good question. It’s actually the top of a weather vane! Which totally works with the name if you think about it. Four Corners is all about bringing the different cultures that exist in Dallas together.

The tour includes the history of the brewery, a walk through and explanation of the facility, time for questions, and, of course, samples!¬†Insider tip: ask for a sample of the “Worker Bee” brew. It’s a 1:1 blend of two of their most popular beers and it’s delicious!¬†The tour lasted about an hour and we had a great time exploring another neighborhood of Dallas! They have a great patio that is pup-friendly and has games like corn hole and giant Jenga. It’s a great place to spend a relaxing weekend afternoon. Cheers!

Happy Anniversary to Crush Craft!

Crush Craft Thai Street Eats is a great Thai spot in the Uptown neighborhood of Dallas. A few weeks ago, we went with friends to the restaurant’s one year anniversary party- and it was a party! From 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm Crush Craft was packed with happy diners chowing down on everything from Og Phat Thai (a.k.a, Pad Thai), to Gang Keo Wan (a.k.a, Green Curry), to Papaya Satay Salad. Although I love Thai food, I can’t consider myself a Thai expert, so I’m not sure how¬†authentic¬†the food at Crush Craft is, but, wow, is it delicious (we may or may not have gone twice in one weekend)!

The oh-so-colorful decor inside Crush Craft!

I’ll apologize in advance for the lack of food pics- we were having so much fun with our friends that I forgot to take them (which I think is a pretty good excuse). William got the Green Curry, I got Pad Thai, and we split the Mou Tad Pork Fritters and Veggie Spring Roll Bites. The Pad Thai has both chicken and tofu, which makes for nice variety! It had a little bit of heat without being too spicy and that great peanut sauce flavor that I love. The¬†Green Curry is so good that one of us has ordered it each time we have been to Crush Craft! This is not the dish for you if you don’t like spicy food, but one of the things that I love about Thai food generally is that along with spice, you get flavor. It’s not just spiciness that prohibits you from tasting any other flavors. With this Green Curry, you get a little break from the heat with the yummy bamboo shoots that grace the dish.

CC Menu

Crush Craft’s menu has something for everyone at a price to please.

Crush Craft has great food at a very reasonable price (all of the entrees are $10 or less)! Don’t forget to check out the different sauce options- everything from a hot chili sauce (think sriracha), to fish sauce, and more.
