The experience After rushing around all morning and (me) getting up super early to round so Mina could go to hula class this am, we found that there was not hula class today (and believe me, I asked her teacher several times if they had class).   So, here the whole family was at 9 o’clock [...]

The experience After Ogre came back empty handed after going to pick up Mina, we remembered that it was Wednesday, which is the evening she spends with Grandpoo and Oma.  Now, we need to rush a little bit to get dinner in before she got home.  Ogre wanted to get a sandwich.  I normally do [...]

The experience Today I had a day off with no commitments, appointments or anything else that I had to do, so I thought we should go out to breakfast.  Unfortunately, pickings are getting VERY slim for breakfast choices that we haven’t eaten at already this year!  The only restaurant that I could think of that [...]


For the next few posts, I’m going to flush the format a little.  We vacationed and attended a wedding in the Dominican Republic from May 13-18th.  We stayed at the Gran Bahia Prinicipe Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic Bouganvilla: “Restaurant International Buffet” We ate here for dinner the first night because we arrived too [...]

The experience Last night’s storm made for a later morning for me this morning and, thus, later getting home from rounding.  I suggested we get a quick bite for lunch somewhere and Ogre did not want to waste a meal out so he turned it into our childsplate adventure for the day.  We decided on [...]

The experience Team Phipps was in a going out to breakfast kind of mood today.  I finished rounding and found the kids and Ogre just about ready to head out.  Problem was that we had no idea where we could this morning.  We wanted to kill two birds with one stone, so Ogre headed to [...]

Fooled at Fuel City

In: 3 stars, Breakfast, Dallas, Dinner, Lunch, Mexican

The experience Today is my real birthday and Ogre planned a Phipps family excursion to Scarborough Faire.  We planned to stop at Fuel City as we read in the Observer that they have “the best street tacos” and have heard this from other sources as well.  We see Fuel City every time we head to [...]

The experience Tonight we were headed to Austin and would passing through Temple right around dinner time.  Perfect place to stop for dinner.  We drove out of our way (but not too far out of the way) to hit an old medical school haunt that serves THE BEST burrito ever!!!  If you’re ever in Temple, [...]

The experience Ogre was going out of town today so I was left with the kids and planning our mealtime outings.  It was complicated by the fact that Mina was in school and spends the evenings with Grandpoo and Oma, as well as the fact that Ogre totally misunderstood my work schedule and planned to [...]

About Child's Plate 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!
