Dallas, Texas - Day 11: Pappy's and Primo's


Tuesday 16th April

Started late once again. We actually didn't do much on this day. But first we walked all the way to Pappy’s Old Fashion Hamburger - you guessed right, a hamburger joint. It’s about a 10-15 minute walk from Hawthorne Suites and also from the Park Inn Hotel. Not a bad walk. We didn't have breakfast so we went here for breakfast and lunch at the same time... It was way after 12 pm!!

So many posters!

I had the jalapeno cheeseburger with fries and an iced tea (forgot the cost). Add loads of ice if you don't like your sweet ice tea too sweet. The fries were a bit like wedges and they don't actually look like the normal french fries we see in other food joints. It was a big burger. I had to use a lot of tissue to get through this!

Miss Pinky had a set menu – forgot what it is and forgot the pricing too!! :S but she said it was good. Some steak, corn and fries. She actually thought she would get a corn on the cob, but it came in a dish. I didn't try hers, so don't know how good it was...

My geeky rating: 5/5 - just for the American diner experience :D

Went into the liquor store next door, and I spotted this odd named whiskey! ^_^ ... It has a funny name... The 'knob' part... :D
Knob Creek Whiskey
Next we took the bus to the station, then took the train to Akard for more information about the TRE trains to Fort Worth... The lady at the desk remembered us, but we didn't remember her...!!

Then next it was time to go to West Village via West End’s 39 bus just to relax and do nothing!

Stopped at West Village and had tacos in Primo’s Tex-Mex Restaurant, a Mexican type restaurant (we had been avoiding Mexican food for the whole trip, but Miss Pinky wanted to try out this place!!). Service was good. 

And here's our tacos. Beef one was dry. Pork one was ok. Chicken one was the best. They also gave us free unsalted tortilla chips as well!! :D

I also had a cocktail without the salt (should have had the salt because it was too sweet)... And Miss Pinky had beer...

We sat there for a bit and Miss Pinky had another beer... Plus we took advantage of the free wi-fi. I like free wi-fi. England needs to catch up on this!! :)

My geeky rating: 4.5/5

It was then time to go back... We were waiting for the bus 39 again, and I took a pic of this boutique... Miss Pinky kept noticing that they changed dresses each time we went pass it! I am not a fashionista like her... Although I seem to know what clothes match and what doesn't!

Got back to the station, and I had seen this beautiful sunset around Inwood / Love Field Station... I had to take a shot!! ^.^
VERY BEAUTIFUL SUNSET IN INWOOD!!!!!
BEAUTIFUL!!!

And then to end the day, I saw this poor fellow... He looked like a homeless person (had seen a few on this trip...) that you see on American TV...
