Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.

We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Malai Kitchen Celebrates North Texas Beer Week 2015


Braden and Yasmin Wages bring the vibrant food and drink culture of Hanoi, Vietnam to Dallas on Saturday, November 14 with beer specials and regional street food

WHAT: In celebration of NTX Beer Week, Malai Kitchen will host an event on Saturday, November 14 emulating the vibrant street food scene of Hanoi, Vietnam. Each morning, vendors roll out kegs of freshly brewed bia hoi – the light Vietnamese rice lager that inspired Malai’s in-house beer program – to serve alongside lunch. Patrons crowd around plastic tables and stools to indulge in traditional street food and sip on the beer – traditionally served on the cheap – until the kegs run dry.

To recreate the atmosphere, Braden and Yasmin Wages will open their front patio from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and offer their house-brewed bia hoi for 50 cents per pint. In addition to favorites from the regular menu like Vietnamese meatballs, green papaya salad with candied bacon, and grilled pork satay with a coriander soy glaze, they will offer small plates inspired by their annual trips to the region. Expect:

Grilled Chicken Hearts, $5
Coriander-ginger marinade, sweet chili dipping sauce

5-Spice Pork Ribs, $9
Crispy grilled pork ribs with Hanoi savory seasoning blend

Crispy Eggplant Fritters, $5
Chinese Eggplant sliced and fried, soy dipping sauce

Street Cart Corn, $4
Fresh cut corn, chilies, fish sauce, dried shrimp

Tempura Fried Frog Legs, $8
Four crispy legs, cucumber salad, tamarind glaze

The event starts at 11 a.m. and ends at 11 p.m. (or until the bia hoi runs out). For more information about NTX Beer Week, visit
