New to Dallas: Ice cream, bread, etc...

Bovinity Divinity was chocolate truffle ice cream swirled with white chocolate truffle ice cream with chocolate and white chocolate cows. sigh.... Just found a new good flavor, can't remember the name, but its liquor related. coffee and chocolate with chocolate cookie swirl. It'll do. Black & Tan sounds like a good one. Haven't seen the Boston Cream Pie yet either. Different stores stock different flavors. I honestly wish they would get rid of Cherry Garcia. Who eats that? But I guess its one of their original flavors, so they keep it.

Whoa! I just looked at the link you mentioned, holy crumb! I WANT that BBQ map blown up for my wall! I was just saying to my husband that we should get a big map of Texas and mark all the great food places we try/hear about on it. Otherwise, sometimes I'll just keep going back to one or 2 places and getting bored with them.

Thanks, I'll check Meshack's out asap. The crystal ball says, "a food tour road trip for BBQ is in my near future." First I have to acclimate to 100 degree weather though. Yikes!

I'll check out the BreadHaus, saw them mentioned on this board as being a good bakery. Thanks for the list of local farms too. We made our way to the Dallas Farmers Market and while very cool, its not something I'd do more than once or twice a month probably, just because of the distance.

Thanks for the welcome! I did try Braum's, and its not bad, but it is definitely more airy than what I'm looking for. I do like gelato and passed Natsumi's the other day after lunch at The Porch. If we hadn't been so stuffed we would've stopped in. Now we'll certainly go back. Love all the wacky flavors most gelaterias sell. And thanks for the fish tip. I do love me some shellfish!

teegee, I was born in Freetown (down near New Bedford/Fall River: most people have never heard of it) and have the sweet accent to prove it, lol. After college I lived in Boston suburbs for about 5 years, moved down to Westport (Gray's Ice Cream in Tiverton, yum) for a couple years and then moved to the Pioneer Valley area for the last 6 years. That's a lot of moving. Thanks for the ice cream recommendations. I'll be testing some out. Thankfully, I've found Ben & Jerry's at least in one supermarket here. That's my fallback. What bugs me about them is #1 too many flavors with chunks in them #2 just when you find a flavor you do like, they pull it. I'll never forgive them for pulling Bovinity Divinity on me. Scoundrels.

Hi, I just moved to Forney (eastern suburb of Dallas) from Massachusetts. This forum has gotten my mouth watering with all the great food choices here. I'm excited! Although very bummed out that BBQ in Dallas is supposed to be lackluster. What the heck?
My question is this: is there any really good, creamy-premium ice cream here? Either for sale in stores or at a stand? I fear this'll be a tough one since I used to live 20 minutes from Herrell's Ice Cream, the INVENTOR of Ben & Jerry's style cream. Herrell's blows Ben & Jerry's away, IMO. Anyway, any suggestions would be great. Location is no object, I will drive with a cooler full of ice to get the good stuff. Also, are there any good bread bakeries around? Particularly near the Dallas Farmer's Market? I'm really looking for a good olive loaf, or that sort of thing for tomato/mozarella/balsamic sandwiches. Thanks so much!
