dallasobserver.com will escort you there past the hipster hunting lodge decor. You’ll choose your 12-or 16-oz flavor from the chalkboard list, with options to add coconut milk or cream. In a stroke of genius, you can manage your caffeine fix and banish the Texas heat all at the same time. 2114 Greenville Ave., 214-370-9535, mudsmithcoffee.com SHOPPING/SERVICES Best Greek Restaurant uid is just another of many delicious options for lunch or dinner. There are no powders, mixes or shortcuts taken here. Four to five stockpots bubble away with protruding cow parts in the back kitchen, each on its way to be-coming one of the best soups you can get in Dallas. Order the sul lung tang and get ready to be warmed to the core. Garnished with green onions and plenty of chili paste, this soup tastes too good to be considered health food. 2257 Royal Lane, No. 101, 972-484-2002, lahanbat.com Little Greek Food Truck The Little Greek Food Truck may not pro-vide tables, chairs or a little old lady who turns every broken plate into a celebration. It doesn’t serve any alcohol, either. What this rolling restaurant lacks in amenities, however, it makes up for in portability, mak-ing delicious Greek food possible on any paved surface in DFW. The truck’s menu of street food — mainly grilled meat sand-wiches served in pita, salads and baklava for dessert — has your Greek basics covered. Just bring a little ouzo in a flask, ask for a cup of ice and belt out, “Opa!” as you toss one back. 469-233-2436, littlegreekfoodtruck.com Best Theatrical Drink Presentation Smoked Ancho Manhattan, Parliament Parliament is half cocktail bar, half theatrical performance. With a good seat, you can watch the bar’s drink experts swirl flames around a glass, shake up a Ramos gin fizz or garnish a cocktail with real deer antlers. But the pièce de résistance is the smoked ancho Manhattan, a spicy twist on the classic drink. After mixing your Manhattan with Ancho Reyes chile li-queur, your bartender will ignite a torch, catch all the smoke in a giant vase and pour your drink in after it. The vase gets sealed up and your drink is swirled through and around the cloud of smoke. As the Manhattan is poured into your glass, little curlicues of smoke puff out around you, transporting you to a fairy-tale dreamland of hot-pepper-and-cherry-fla-vored alcoholic bliss. Thirsty yet? 2418 Allen St., Dallas, 469-804-4321, parliamentdallas.com CULTURE/PEOPLE | Best Pimento Cheese Sandwich COLD BEER CO. Kathy Tran Best Korean Restaurant Seoul Garden A trip to Seoul Garden is worth it for the kimchi alone. The cabbage is assertively spicy, fresh, vibrant and so crunchy you’ll NIGHTLIFE/MUSIC think it’s still fresh. But since you drove here, you might as well enjoy the rest of the menu, starting with Korean barbecue that you’ll cook yourself at your table with a charcoal-fired grill. Get the plain, non-mar-inated cuts if you want the flavor of the charcoal to shine through, and don’t ne-glect the plates of banchan that cover the table when you order. The kitchen here isn’t afraid of big and bold flavors, and that personality comes through in these tiny dishes of pickled snacks. 2502 Royal Lane, 972-484-6090, seoulgardendallas.com FOOD/DRINK | Best Bone Broth LA Han Bat The bone broth trend is taking off in other cit-ies as health nuts praise its rich nutritional value.
