Meddlesome Moth

There are very few things that I’m willing to crack my body out of bed early on a Saturday for, the promise of a trendy and delicious brunch is one of of them. I spent Saturday morning, enjoying the gorgeously sunny day at Meddlesome Moth.

The Meddlesome Moth is a New American gastropub in Dallas’s Oak Lawn design district.


I went with three of my close friends, and because it was such a beautiful day, we sat outside on the patio. (Although, the inside was so aesthetically interesting with stained class windows sloping down over the tables, that I almost wished we had eaten in there.)

I ordered the Pork Cheek Hash [it was so unbelievably delicious!]

The dish featured pork cheek (a cut of meat I had never heard of before, but fell in love with immediately), two eyes (mine were fried, over hard) and diced potatoes with parsley and charred onions.

Mother and Child Reunion: This dish featured a fried chicken breast top with two poached eggs, nettled atop homestead grits with every thing drenched in jalapeno gravy.

French Toast Sandwich : The French Toast sandwich is made up of two battered brioche french toast slices, a runny egg, Tillamook Cheddar, Mickleberry Ham and sorghum cream.



Vital Farms Three Egg Omelette: The omelette is made with three eggs (obviously! 🙂 ), avocado and pepper jack salsa. It comes with a side of “brunch potatoes.”


Overall, although I loved the Pork Cheek Hash, I don’t think I would go to Meddlesome Moth again, just because I found the options to be very limited and more expensive than I’d like for their lunch and dinner options. I think the food definitely has a high class feel (and price) but a lot of the ingredients are a little too divergent from my taste palette.

    I love Meddlesome Moth. It’s a common stop for bicyclists in the Design District – the outdoor patio is great because it’s a little less formal than the inside dining.

    Thanks for sharing.

        That’s easy – the beer selection. Other than that – shrimp and grits.
