Dickey's New "Walking Tacos"

It may just be frito pie, but it sounds delicious!

What's not to love about Dickey's Barbecue? Between their delicious sandwiches, meats and sides--the fried okra is always my favorite, but the onion straws are also excellent!--and jumbo Big Yellow Cups, it's a real crowd pleaser. The kids also love the free ice cream cones and ino nuggies. So when Dickey's announces something new, it's always extra exciting.

This time Dickey's is introducing new "walking tacos," which are honestly their version of Frito pie and they sound delicious! Each order comes in a bag of Fritos and includes the company's brisket chili, cheese, onions and poblano queso. Yum! Fans who don't love the idea but want to try the chili can also order it as a side item on its own for a limited time from the restaurant. Participating locations will carry the menu items through February.

MariPili Tapas Bar is Coming to Seattle

Do you plan on visiting?

Tapas are my favorite food, hands-down, so hearing that Seattle is getting a tapas bar is very exciting. MariPili Tapas Bar is moving into Capitol Hill’s Cafe Presse's old location after it sadly had to close. The bar will serve food with a Spanish-American focus and the new owner, Grayson Corrales, is from Spain. Previously Corrales was the pastry chef at JuneBaby and now she's opening up a tapas restaurant.

No menu items have been revealed as of yet, since Corrales is currently traveling in Spain to get some ideas for the menu. The tapas bar is going to be open for dinner to start, and later for brunch. The restaurant is also supposed to feature a wide wine and drink menu, with happy hour specials.
