It was a big festival weekend in Dallas. The State Fair was wrapping up in Fair Park Sunday, Aurora pulled some 30,000 people to the Arts District on Friday night, music fans poured into Deep Ellum for Index Festival all weekend, and others went over to The Cedars for Lamar Street Festival on Saturday, and then finished up with the Texas Veggie Fair, the healthy foodies answer to State Fair treats, at Reverchon Park Sunday.
The veggie fair -- featuring booths with such restaurants as Be Raw, Kalachandjis, and Hacienda on Henderson as well as such food trucks as Good Karma and Nammi and a park full of animal rights and environmental groups -- was a relaxing, clean way to finish up a busy weekend. Lines were long but seemed to move pretty quickly. Hadnt tried Good Karma, originally from Fort Worth, before Sunday but their spicy Asian tacos (two for $6) means I may be hunting that truck down in the future. Vegan cheesecake ($6) from Reverie proved as rich as its more cow-oriented counterpart.
And they say theres nothing to do in Dallas but shop and eat. Well, they certainly got the eat part right.
