More all-day tortillas for Addison
Tex-Mex destination Lupe Tortilla is making good on its plans to blanket North Dallas with locations. Its latest 8,000-square-foot location in Addison (4535 Belt Line Road) just opened inside a former Romano’s Macaroni Grill space. The lengthy menu touts 60 items made from scratch, including its popular lime and pepper marinated beef and chicken fajitas with hand-pressed corn tortillas. Lupe Tortilla made its Dallas debut in July, with others planned for Allen by year-end and Forth Worth in early 2020. The brand dates back to 1983 in the outskirts of Houston.
Forth Worth gets a tiny ice cream parlor
Melt Ice Creams started scooping in Fort Worth’s buzzy entertainment area Sundance Square, reports the Dallas Morning News. Its third yellow-lined location is sized at 550 square feet, with minimal seating. Flavors include strawberry buttermilk and a pineapple concoction with spiced rum caramel swirls, dubbed “Boozy Buccaneer,” along with vegan and seasonal selections. The local biz, run by couple Kari Crowe-Seher and Mark Seher, has two other locations in Fort Worth and the Bishop Arts District. [Dallas News]
