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 My partner texted me about seeing the fireworks in Rowlett and after I discussed with Ogre, we decided it could work.  I had a birthday party to take the kids to in the afternoon, but we decided we go after and meet my partner and her sweet baby girl for dinner after.  Turned [...]

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 [...]

Dinner at 15th Street Cafe

In: 2 stars, American, Dinner, Lunch, Plano

The experience We needed to run some errands again…yes, the fish!  One of our fish actually did die like the Pet Store guy said would happen, but Ogre still needed to change out the water.  So, we had to go to the Pet Store to buy some supplies for him to do that.  Now we [...]

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 [...]

The experience Today was one of those days that reminds me that our lives really revolve around our kids and, right now, Mina.  For lunch, we took back up to L&L Hawaiian BBQ to watch the hula dancers, then back down for her to attend her friend’s birthday party at ASI and then I took Benji [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

A Plano Newbie: Urban Crust

In: 4 stars, Dinner, Lunch, Pizza, Plano

The experience It was another busy day for Team Phipps.  Benji was still asleep at Lala’s house and we needed to hit the mall (I wanted to buy some gifts from the Disney store for upcoming birthday parties that Mina has been invited to), and buy fish for Ogre and Mina’s fish tank (Mina wanted to [...]

The experience Mina started hula lessons today, so it was just me and her.  We ended up having to stop off at the hospital for an admission after her dance lesson, so I decided we’d eat in Rowlett so it wouldn’t be too late when we were eating dinner.  Just a few weeks ago, I [...]

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!
