A Sandwich a Day: The Goat Cheese and Bacon from Uncle Uber's Sammich Shop

Uncle Uber's Sammich Shop in Dallas's Deep Ellum neighborhood hasn't been open very long, but over the last few months they've managed to make some serious, er, sammiches. Nomenclature aside, you should order Uncle Uber's Goat Cheese and Bacon ($6.29). The applewood smoked bacon and slices of cucumber and avocado give it a fresh taste, almost reminiscent of a BLT, but then you have that thick, rich layer of goat cheese that makes it far more substantial than its BLT cousin.

Dallas: 9 Enchiladas We Love

Dallas loves its Tex-Mex and there's perhaps no greater dish that illustrates the philosophy behind the hybrid Mexican and American styles of cooking than the enchilada. There seem to be as many Tex-Mex places in Dallas as there are people, so whittling it down to just nine was a tall task. Nonetheless, these are some of our favorite examples of the versatility, creativity and history the enchilada can capture. More

A Sandwich a Day: The Sausage And Pepper at Il Cane Rosso in Dallas

They take their pizza seriously at Il Cane Rosso in Dallas, but that doesn't mean the VPN-certified pizzeria doesn't make a mean sandwich too.

A Sandwich a Day: Tex-Mex Reuben at Mr. G's in Plano, TX

It's not really a Reuben. In fact, even calling it a Tex-Mex Reuben is a little misleading: there's no pastrami or corned beef and it contains no sauerkraut. No, this sandwich is not a Reuben of any sort! But at least they kept the rye and the Russian dressing. The Tex-Mex Reuben ($6.99) at Mr. G's Beverage and Deli is a grilled beast of beef and pepper.

Dallas: Big, Fat, Down and Dirty Burgers At Adair's Saloon

I love Adair's! If you managed to peek into the kitchen, you'd see it's more of a closet with a griddle in it. Did you stick around for the evening? It's a fun, crowded mess on the weekends ...

The Food Lab: The Road To Better Risotto

Kenji, as a newlywed, you have helped me in multiple fashions today; of course the risotto aspect is one of them, and as always, you've decided what we're having for dinner tonight just by posting something.

But the second thing: we're supposed to get them gifts every anniversary? Sheesh. Seems like a little overkill, doesn't it?

(Yes, I'm joking. Especially if my wife is reading.)
