A heaping helping of news & reviews from DFWs dining scene.

Jorge's veggie enchiladas are Lent-tastic

Posted 1:49pm on Saturday, Mar. 12, 2011

If you're going meatless on Fridays and headed to dinner before one of the many nighttime activities in Dallas' Arts District, sink a fork into the veggie enchiladas at Jorge's in One Arts Plaza. The ample vegetable medley -- including tiny triangles of squash, mushrooms, zucchini and carrots -- were crisp and flavorful, tucked inside two soft flour tortillas. On the menu, it says the dish is prepared using no oils, and as a POINTS-counting dieter, I loved how non-greasy it was. The white rice and black beans served alongside it were better than the standard Mexican rice and refried beans that came with my dining companion's fajita plate. And the satisfying dish is only 12 bucks for dinner!

One other plus for Jorge's: they know how to get diners in and out quickly before a performance at one of the nearby venues. We'd made a reservation on Open Table for 6:30, and more than a half-hour to spare before last night's 8 p.m. Chris Botti-Dallas Symphony concert at the Meyerson (which is a fantastic show, by the way. Still time to check it out tonight or Sunday afternoon). Do try, however, NOT to get a table in the busy pathway of kitchen-bar traffic. Your quick dinner might feel a little TOO harried with all the servers whooshing by, to and fro.
