Why People Love Living in North Oak Cliff

Why-People-Love-Living-in-North-Oak-Cliff-Photo-by-Jenny-Smith.jpg

Check out this local’s  guide to why she loves living in North Oak Cliff. Here are a few of our favorites in her top 10 list:

Burnt Ends – This is what candy made out of meat tastes like. Find these delectable nuggets at Lockhart Smokehouse. But only when they feel like making them. And, you’ll have to follow them on twitter to find out when they feel like it.

Giraffe-Feeding – You haven’t been licked until you’ve been licked by something with a long black tongue at The Dallas Zoo. If you’re there with your young-uns, bring their swimsuit so you can splash around in the stream inside the Lacerte Family Children’s Zoo area. Between feeding the giraffes and talking your kid out of the mole tunnels, that’s an entire afternoon right there.

Mexican Egg Rolls – An excellent mash-up of food cultures, and a neighborhood favorite at Veracruz in Bishop Arts. I prefer to have a dinner crawl down the block – start with the Mexican Egg Rolls, move on to the Prosciutto-Wrapped Figs at Hattie’s, then on to Eno’s for Pasta Carbonara (with a soft-boiled egg yolk on top). Emporium Pies for dessert of course. Now you’ve royally done Bishop Arts.

Large Marge – Er, I mean The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. On your way across the Trinity River to my neighborhood, open your sunroof as you drive under the magnificent arch of Large Marge, and let your passengers take some Instagram pics. It’s especially nice when the Mary Kay ladies are in town, and it’s all pink and color coordinated with the Hyatt Ball and the Omni LEDs. It’s practically Vegas.

Pétanque – Once a year, my friends Amy Cowan and Jason Roberts throw the Francophile party of the century. Bastille on Bishop. Just because Amy likes baguettes and Beaujolais. Who doesn’t!? They block off a street and turn it into a Pétanque court (which is kind of like street billiards). And don’t worry, the metal balls have been replaced with plastic ones. Because my kid managed to hit himself in the head with a over-zealous throw last year. He’s a game-changer.

Pink Ladies – Not the Grease kind, the Aunt Stella’s Snow Cones kind. It’s the best flavor. Out of all the gazillion flavors. Trust me. Every afternoon you’ll see us lined up down the block to get our hands on Dallas’ best snow cone and hang out with our neighbors. Who cares that it’s 105 out here y’all. I. Have. A. Snow. Cone.

Chocolate Covered Bacon – Dude, Sweet Chocolate. Yep, that’s the name of the store. No meal out in Oak Cliff is complete without a sweet from Dude Sweet. Stop early and often.
