We’re just over a week away from the opening of the State Fair of Texas, which is nationally recognized for its battered and fried, over-the-top calorie bombs.
In the spirit of the season, many Dallas-Fort Worth restaurants are following suit and serving fair-inspired cuisine.
If you can’t make it to the State Fair this year, or if you want to prolong your celebration outside the grounds of Fair Park, here are some restaurants where you can find fair-inspired fare — no tickets or coupons required, plus you’ll have air con and seating.
Bubble tea concept Fat Straws is debuting a Pandan-coconut flavored mochi donut. These Japanese-style doughnuts are known for their crispy exterior and chewy interior. Pandan is a tropical plant that grows in Southeast Asia and is often called the vanilla of Southeast Asia. These unique doughnuts are hand-dipped and topped with coconut flakes.
