TASTE of Angry Frito Pie at Oddfellows Texas
Welcome to TASTE, a delicious part of Walking On Travels that will give you ideas for your next dining adventure with or without your kids. For many of us, we loved checking out the latest restaurant before we had kids, but we forgot about food after the baby was born. It is time to reignite those taste buds and get excited about what is out there to be devoured and enjoyed.
What: Angry Frito Pie
Where: Oddfellows, 316 W 7th St., Dallas, Texas 75208
Why: The chorizo and jalapenos is what makes this Frito Pie an Angry Frito Pie. If you like heat, this dish is for you!
At $10.95 on the brunch menu, I was expecting a generous portion (this is Texas after all) but I was shocked when the waitress put the bowl in front of me. The pie looked large enough to feed 2 to 3 adults! There were so many different textures and flavors in the dish, every bite was better than the last. Salty, sour, spicy (VERY spicy), crunchy, chewy – I couldn’t get enough.
As tasty as it all was, my initial assessment of Angry Frito Pie was correct – I couldn’t finish it and ended up leaving 2/3 of it untouched. Come hungry – VERY HUNGRY – or bring friends to help you finish this dish.
If you have a favorite morsel you discovered during your wanderings that you would like to share, please be in touch. I’m always looking to highlight the best bites around.
