My boyfriend’s parents took us to a Korean bakery called Caffé Bene outside Dallas in the Korean district. Korean’s are known for their amazing baked goods, and I have to say it was delicious. We went for brunch, and I ended up getting a waffle with strawberries and whipped cream. It looked small but it was actually really filling. I also ended up getting a cream cheese danish which is one of my absolute favorites. I couldn’t finish it so I took it home and had it for breakfast the next day. It was still perfectly delicious the day after. This is a place I would love to come once a week for a late breakfast or early lunch. I can’t wait to try more Korean baked goods the next time I go!

La Madeline is a chain restaurant around here, but I’ve never heard of them up North. I would compare it to a Panera which I love. I’ve only been here a week, and I’ve been here three times already! We go mostly for breakfast, but they have great lunch options as well. My boyfriend loves the potato soup and always gets the largest bowl every time we go. They offer free bread and the best jam! My favorite item is strawberries romanoff which is like yogurt but much sweeter, almost like a fruit dip. I’ve also had crepes here and the best, flaky croissants. If there is a La Madeline chain around you I highly recommend you check it out. It’s a really inexpensive breakfast or lunch to try out!

My boyfriend’s parents also took us to a restaurant called BJ’s Brewery in Addison, Texas. I would consider the food a mix between Italian, American, and Mexican (three of my favorites!) They are a brewery and make their own beer. Although I don’t really drink, I tried some of my boyfriend’s homemade beer and it was very good. I almost even ordered my own glass. I am a big fan of lettuce wraps so we ordered shrimp Thai lettuce wraps for an appetizer. I loved the spicy sauce that goes with the wraps. For my main course I ordered a delicious turkey burger. It kind of reminded me of a Red Robin burger, and it was perfect! The service was great again even though they were extra busy that night. If you like beer and typical bar food, you have to try out BJ’s!

I had an interview last week and realized all my professional clothes are in storage, so my boyfriend took me to the Galleria Mall in Dallas to get some new clothes. I’ve been to nice malls before, but I have to say, I’ve never seen a mall with an ice skating rink. Although we didn’t skate, we did shop (and did a lot of window shopping). Most stores are out of our price range, but it’s still fun to look at all the nice stores and restaurants.

My favorite place we’ve gone so far has been the Dallas World Aquarium in Uptown Dallas. I love animals and water, so the aquarium is the perfect place for me to spend a day. Parking was $7 for the day and admission was $20 per person. We ended up going during the week and ran into a few field trips, but other than that it was pretty empty. This place is huge and not only an aquarium but also a small zoo. We easily spent 4 hours entertained by all there was to see. My favorite part was seeing the three-story waterfall and the endangered manatee eat lunch. I’ve been to quite a few aquariums before, but this was my favorite so far. Some of the best attractions were the shark tunnel, 14-foot crocodile, and jaguar exhibit. If you are in the Dallas area, definitely go check it out!
|Go and check it out! Seriously!|
