I always thought my job was in Oak Cliff, but a couple of people say we're in Duncanville. It throws me off because I have been to Duncanville but have no clue where Duncanville really is. I work less than five minute away from Mountain View College, so I'm going to stick with Oak Cliff.

Awesome! Thanks buddy!


You're welcome! And just a tip, you might want to ask for light cheese. Sometimes the cooks go a little crazy with the daiya!

Has anyone in the DFW area actually attempted Loving Hut yet? I've been super broke but am dying to try it out.

BTW - if you are on the Fort Worth-Mid cities side:
Papaya Garden off 183 and HW 157/Industrial is amazing. They have a full "vegetarian" menu that is actually vegan. They do wheat gluten or tofu in any of their dishes and will nix fish sauce in anything that's not on the vegetarian menu if you switch to "vegetarian style"
All the meals we've had come with a house salad, and ask for the veggie dressing. The other dressing is mayo based. The veggie dressing is a rice-vinegar peanut dressing that is divine.

I'm a little suspicious. They have some of their recipes online, and I remember the black bean soup having bacon. I'd love if it were really vegan though. I used to love that painted desert soup.

The Loving Hut is delicious. The Raw Brownie tastes like a giant Larabar and is very filling and "healthy" tasting.

It's happening! April 30 12-4. If you haven't connected with the organizer yet, email dallasveganbakesale at gmail dot com.

(Sorry if this is completely redundant - but since I had posted here about it I wanted to follow up in case others hadn't heard back.)

I also love going to the Blue Fish and Freebirds (burritos, I am obsessed).

we just got a Freebird's in Corpus and now I am obsessed. Cheap vegan food that I don't make is a pretty high commodity around here :-)

I am OBSESSED with freebird's bbq sauce. I put it on everything there, even the chips! haha

So today we are going to the new vegan restaurant D'Vegan. I've heard it's really good so we're excited! I will try to post some pics later.

So D'Vegan was.....REALLY GOOD. The only sucky part is that there is a chinese bbq place right next door, so you are greeted with duck and pig carcass before going into the door. Ironic, eh? Anyway, here's some pics. Next time I will definitely try some Pho and their beef flat noodles. We played it safe this time haha.
