Being the starving artist that I am, I’m always on the lookout for great deals on great food. I have found a few in Deep Ellum that have become a staple for me.
- All Good Café hosts the 2 for 1 dinner special from 6-9pm. Most people know All Good for their great breakfast menu, but for lunch and dinner I have found it to be one of my most favorite local spots. My favorites there are their herb roasted chicken, their spinach salad, or even just a veggie plate, which is made up of 3 picks from their fresh side menu. A meal usually costs on average from $6-7.99, but since it’s a 2 for 1 deal, you have to bring another person along.
- Monica’s (just down the block from All Good) also has half-price night on Tuesdays. One of the great Dallas Tex-Mex spots. You can get entrees here for about the same price as All Good, so you can save just the same amount of loot even if you are just eating alone.
- The Meridian Room in Fair Park hosts half-price nights on Wednesdays. They definitely have one of my most favorite meals…the Turkey Brie Sandwich with apple slices on toasted sourdough. All sandwiches come with fries or a pasta salad too…and the side to choose is the Sweet Potato Fries! This meal is usually $6.50, but half-price makes it a steal at $3.25. This much good-ness for so little almost feels like Christmas every Wednesday.
I’m still looking for good deals for the rest of the week. Until then, the Ramen Noodles seem to still be working. In fact I’ve gotten quite inventive with it lately. I’ll just say that a little peanut butter made for quite the strange yet delicious surprise.
