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 [...]

Not so Prima Primavera’s

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

The experience We used the iPhone again to choose dinner.  We drove over not recalling ever seeing this restaurant, but we had a back up plan in place.  Luckily, we did find it and strolled over.  The kids immediately noticed a frozen yogurt place called “Spoonful” and were already making plans to eat there after [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 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 [...]

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!
