The experience I was Mina’s chauffeur again this evening driving a ways to her hula class.  Ogre and I decided we’d meet after her class and thought that our plan a couple weeks ago to meet halfway would work again, so we decided on the El Chico right by the Bone Daddy’s we went to [...]

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 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 [...]

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 As dinnertime rolled around, Benji was sleeping peacefully at Lala’s house, so I told Mina that we’d go and get Papa and eat dinner without him and pick him up later.  We headed back to the house to get Ogre and as we drove down our street, we tried to figure out what’s [...]

The experience Mina had hula lessons tonight so I called Ogre as we were finishing up to figure out dinner.  He had told me to find some place between here and there as I drove to where she has class, but I did not see much on my way there.  We ended up deciding to [...]

No Mommy at Masami

In: 3 stars, Dallas, Japanese, Richardson, Sushi

The experience Mommy was working this evening so it was dinner time with Papa and the kids.  Mina decided she wanted Japanese and I had no idea where to go.  I was headed to Richardson in the general direction of some Asian restaurants when I recalled a restaurant off of Belt Line.  So we pulled [...]

The experience Somehow I went from craving and wanting Sukiyaki to ending up at a burger joint.  I searched far and wide to find a place that serves Sukiyaki (other than Awaji) and came up with nothing.  I caught Benji’s cold and since I couldn’t have sukiyaki, I figured anything else would be find as long [...]

The experience We decided to go to Fogo de Chao for Father’s Day with Ogre and his dad.  (We went out to lunch with my dad).  We arrived to find Oma and Grandpoo already waiting on us as we were about 10 minutes late to arrive.  We were seated right away after that.  We discussed [...]

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!
