3 stars Category

The experience Ogre was finishing up lawn work (we have an acre) and as he was finishing up, I found out that I had an admission to see at the hospital.  We decided it would be the best plan to eat in Rowlett so I could head over to the hospital right after dinner and [...]

The experience This afternoon and evening were busy (as usual).  My car needed new tires, so we dropped off my car in the afternnon, then I had to take Mina to hula class, which is all the way across town while Benji napped.  Our original plan was to meet somewhere like we usually do, but [...]

Good Stuff at The Fish Shack

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Lunch, Plano, Seafood

The experience We decided to stay in Plano for dinner tonight and after some discussion, we remembered that we’d been wanting to try.  This spot has been home to many restaurants over the years, but was originally a Long John Silver’s.  It seems as though it’s back to it’s roots, as it is now the [...]

The experience Ogre told me that he was in the mood for soup tonight.  I suggested Mr. Shabu Shabu and he thought it sounded like a pretty good idea.  Mina was not with us as she was with Oma and Grandpoo.  So, it was just us and the Benj.  We’ve never been here before and [...]

Dim Sum at Maxim’s

In: 3 stars, Chinese, Dim Sum, Dinner, Lunch, Richardson

The experience We decided it would be fun to do Dim Sum today.  We were getting a somewhat late start, so we were worried about the crowds.  We decided on Maxim’s, which seems to be the other place to get Dim Sum around here (Kirin Court being the other, but I’ll admit that I like [...]

Summer Night at Bangkok City

In: 3 stars, Dallas, Dinner, Lunch, Thai

The experience I decided that I wanted Thai food tonight, and I wanted Thai food that I know I like.  I offered up either Royal Thai or Bangkok City.  Ogre chose Bangkok City, we ate here pretty frequently when Ogre lived off Lower Greenville before we got married and had all these kids!   Ogre ended [...]

The experience I got home and Ogre apparently had decided on dinner already with the help of his iPhone.  We would be going to Houston’s.  Fine by me, I love Houston’s!  It is a little pricey though, but whatever, I’d been wanting to go there for childsplate anyway.  We drove out to the one near Addison [...]

The experience Grace suggested this evening that I go eat with my dad since she couldn’t make it.  I said OK, but why?  She mentioned my mom was out of town.  I had no idea.  So when my dad arrived to pick up Mina as pre-planned, I asked about it.  They were going to go [...]

Deja Vu at Chang Jin

In: 3 stars, Dinner, Korean, Lunch, Richardson

The experience I have been thinking about this “new” Korean restaurant in Richardson where many of my other favorite Asian restaurants are so when Ogre and Mina brought up Korean food, it immediately came to mind.  Ogre suggested some other restaurants in Dallas, but Benji has been a bad mood ALL day, so I thought [...]

The experience I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant that was suggested to me by a colleague for quite some time and decided tonight was the night to do it!  After all, we are coming up on our last month of childsplate!  I had to wait for Benji to awaken from his nap before rounding [...]

About Child's Plate

Childsplate.com chronicles our journey to find the perfect family restaurant. We are looking for restaurants with excellent food and a great attitude towards kids, even the whiny, cranky ones! We will be headed out to a different restaurant every single day to provide ourselves (and you) with some entertainment and good information about DFW area restaurants. We hope you will visit frequently and use our experiences to create some fun dining experiences of your own! Watch out, DFW, the Phipps family is going out to eat!
