The experience We’re getting down to the nitty gritty, just a few short days and we’ll have eaten at 365 different restaurants over the last 365 days.  There are a couple of places that we’ve had recommended to us that we want to squeeze in, one of them being a Chinese Joint in Dallas.  We’ve [...]

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 [...]

A Late Dinner at J. Palace

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

The experience Well, today, we had to run some errands and, of course, got off to a late start.  We needed to hit Wal-Mart for a few items, so Ogre wanted to eat near the Wal-Mart somewhere.  We are really running low on choices in that area.  Ogre recalled J. Palace (actually, he called it [...]

The experience You know I had that idea to go to Steak and Shake for a quick dinner yesterday and ended up 30 miles away from home.  I suggested it again today.  Actually, let me back track.  As you know, Mina spends Wednesday evenings with her grandparents, who usually pick her up from school.  Benji [...]

The experience Today is Lala and Lolo’s anniversary and I managed to invite myself to their going out to dinner plans.  Mom kept saying we were eating at Best Buy.  They could not remember the name of the restaurant, but I was able to figure out what they were talking about and able to relay [...]

The experience We ended up near Allen around lunch time as we wanted to take some pictures of the kids in the Indian Blankets.  I love the Indian Paintbrushes and Indian Blankets (my favorite color is orange!).  By the time we finished taking a few pics, I was hot, nauseated, and hungry.  Ogre tried to [...]

Light Lunch at Lite Wok

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

The experience We do a lot of celebrating in April. Today is my and Ogre’s anniversary.  So where does my loving husband take me out to eat?  That Chinese place around the corner by the CVS.  I was a little wary, but I haven’t had a strong opinion about eating out lately, so I said [...]

See Phipps at C Wok

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

The experience Mina was out with Grandpoo and Oma again tonight for their weekly choir/music class so it was just me and my boys for dinner.  Unfortunately, we were late getting moving again today, which meant we’d have to stay close so we could be home in time to meet Mina.  I swear that there [...]

The experience We thought we’d brave the threat of a ridiculously long wait and attempt Kirin Court again.  The last time we came, we bailed because it was going to be an hour and half wait!!  We decided that there were some alternatives if it was too packed so we drove into Richardson.  When we [...]

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!
