Malgudi Garden.jpg

Malgudi Garden: Unique Indian restaurant serves traditional Indian specialties such as lentil stew and biryani, the comforting rice dish. The menu covers regions all over India, such as Kerala and Tamil. The setting is upscale and the menu is entirely vegetarian, with many options that are vegan, too. Like most Indian restaurants, Malgudi does a lunch buffet, but they do it every day, not just weekdays, with an especially bountiful version they roll out on Friday through Sunday. But Malgudi does a buffet for breakfast, as well, from 9 to 10:30 am, with pancakes, idly, vada, pongal, ragi kichadi, aloo bhaji, kesari, dosas, and fresh juices.

monkey king noodle.jpg

Monkey King Carrollton: Deep Ellum's favorite noodle joint goes to the 'burbs of Carrollton with its menu of soups, noodles, and dumplings, in a spacious location that was once an autobody shop. There's cucumber salad and seasonal stir-fries such as the one combining mushrooms and shishito peppers. The Carrollton outlet is also serving the treats being made at its Deep Ellum Banana Stand dessert shop, including pineapple tarts and precise little almond cookies.


Address: 1309 S Broadway St, Carrollton, TX 75006

Nam Hua.jpg

Nam Hua: Small, authentic Vietnamese restaurant owned by the Pham family has noodles, soups, banh mi sandwiches on crisp crusty bread, and plates such as stir-fried beef with green vegetables. They do an exceptional rendition of banh xeo, the crepe dish where you tear off pieces of the crepe and wrap it around vegetables, bean sprouts, and herbs, and make your own little rolls. There are plenty of vegetarian options, and the restaurant also has snacks and trinkets for sale.

Address: 3112 N Jupiter Rd., #305, Garland, Texas 75044
Hours: 10:00AM ~ 10:00PM
Phone: 972-414-8638




Zatar: New restaurant in Deep Ellum has one of the best versions of Middle Eastern cuisine: Lebanese. Novel dishes include upside-down lamb pilaf; a kafta "skillet" with kafta, tomato, potato, and onion; and a grilled-chicken brochette marinated in Lebanese spices served with fries, house garlic cream, and pickles. There's a hummus trio using unexpected ingredients such as beet, edamame, and white bean; wraps, including one with falafel; and even a burger topped with a fried egg. All good stuff.
