Top 10 Places to Eat in the Oak Forest (and Inwood Forest) Area
3. Pho Dalat (7758 West Tidwell)
Admittedly, the pho is not the best around. The joy of Pho Dalat is in the vermicelli dishes. The chargrilled pork atop the bed of noodles is the tastiest we've found to date, and the lemongrass chicken puts others to shame. There's also an entire selection of family-style meals, with dishes like jellyfish salad, catfish in salted caramel sauce and squid with preserved vegetables.
2. Café Red Onion (12440 Northwest Freeway)
If you've tried the Chicken Brazil, there's no further explanation needed. If you haven't, go try it. Today. Café Red Onion has interesting dishes outside the realm of everyday Tex-Mex for reasonable prices. And everything we've ever had here is delicious.
1. Daddyo's Pizza (5009 Antoine)
There's something about the New York-style crust here that leaves us clamoring for words. There's no earth-shattering combinations, no fancy ingredients like smoked salmon or arugula, just good, old-fashioned, handmade pizza pies with toppings like pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms, onions and all that good stuff. Also, it's possibly the only spot in the area that's not a chain, and that counts for something.
