Lekka is an offshoot of Obzeet, which lost its lease earlier this year (but may reopen at a new location). Originally intended to be a retail shop featuring home décor items, Lekka’s owners decided to serve food and liquor as well.
Off-Site Kitchen gives off the deceptive impression that it’s some kind of hidden gem.
There are only three types of American-born pizza that need to exist: New York, Chicago…and Detroit. You probably haven’t heard of the last one – it’s high time for a change.
Detroit-style pizza has yet to be discovered on a national level, especially when compared to its two age-old rivals. Both deserve their fame, but both have tragic flaws. Deep-dish Chicago-style often resembles lasagna over actual pizza (sorry, utensils), and thin-crust New York-style can leave you unsatisfied no matter how much you inhale.
Detroit-style pizza? Not a complaint in sight.
Still reeling from my Hopdoddy buzz (acquired only 30 hours earlier), I visited Dallas-based Liberty Burger. The concepts are similar — locally sourced, minimally processed beef, bison, chicken and turkey — but Liberty Burger has its unique twist on the burger patty: a blend of tenderloin, chuck and brisket.
The Dallas gourmet burger market is heating up with the recent opening of Hopdoddy Burger Bar. Born in Austin, Hopdoddy’s short history dates back to 2010.
Like many other burger joints of its kind, Hopdoddy’s focus is on quality beef (Premium Gold Angus), bison and other meat from livestock raised without antibiotics or hormones. At the bar, you’ll find regionally produced beers on tap and other libations.
