Opening its doors in 1974, Royal China has continued to be a staple for Dallasites. Arguably the best Chinese food in town, the menu features traditional specialties as well as modern creations. Head to the Preston Royal shopping center for a taste of Chinese food heaven.
Sandwich Hag specializes in Bánh Mi – a Vietnamese sandwich shop in the Cedars District that uses the freshest ingredients and preparing everything from scratch. Enjoy four choices of meats (the Vietnamese Pork Sausage is a favorite!) along with a variety of Vietnamese specialty drinks like the iced coffee or Boba tea.
Located in East Dallas, Hello Dumpling is a modern Asian cafe serving a variety of noodles, dumplings and Boba teas. Local favorites include the Pork with Napa Cabbage Dumplings and the Braised Beef Noodle Soup.
This budget-friendly spot offers a menu full of flavor. From their signature "Crack'lin" fried rice, Japanese-style BBQ, and make-your-own noodle or rice bowls, there's plenty of options and most items are under $10! They’re located near SMU in North Dallas.
Feast on authentic Korean food at Sura Korean BBQ in North Dallas, serving high quality meats and fresh veggies. Go for the BBQ Buffet (available on the weekends) to enjoy all-day specials featuring fried dumplings, marinated spicy chicken, pork belly and more.
Head to South Dallas to Miako Teriyaki, a small but might family-owned restaurant. This fast casual Japanese spot offers all the goods – teriyaki chicken, fried rice, sushi rolls and bento box options.
Tucked away in a corner hidden behind the hustle and bustle of Lower Greenville, you’ll discover Hinodeya Ramen Bar. Hailing from the Saitama Prefecture of Japan, the history of Hinodeya carries onto their plates. If you want to dive into their more traditional ramen, start off with the Hinodeya. Topped with chashu (my favorite), pork, green onions and nori, this classic dish won’t disappoint.
Manpuku, which means “to be happy with a full stomach” in Japanese, is known for its famous signature Japanese BBQ. Grab your friends and head on down for fiery and smokey night out. Don’t worry, the servers will give amazing tips on how to cook their Negi Shio Yakiniku to perfection.
Created back in the ’50s in Vietnam as street food, this Vietnamese-French fusion hits Dallas as delicious as ever. They have a great variety of Banh Mi which ranges from grilled lemongrass chicken to smoked pulled pork. Not a fan of meat? Their buffalo un-chicken will fill all your vegan cravings.
We know the Bishop Arts District is on your list. Pair this with sushi and your night out in Dallas is set. This chef-driven, female-owned establishment is a winner of over 14 ‘Best Sushi in Dallas’ awards. Their house-made gyoza is the best starter to any roll of sushi you have your eyes set on.
When we say intimate dining, Ten Ramen does it best. The experience at ten ramen is unlike any other. As soon as you walk in, you’ll see why they call it Ten Ramen: only ten people fit inside standing up. Be quick, the line gets long, but there is no denying how great their Spicy Lobster and Tonkotsu ramen is.
The latest Izakaya and DimSum house has opened in Deep Ellum: Neon Kitten! As you can imagine, this place is Instagram-worthy as are the drinks. Get ready with your cameras and phones to photograph the Osaka, which is served in a giant ceramic kitten.
