Irving's restaurant scene is diverse and always growing. From Pakistani dishes and healthy-ish pizzas to beautiful baked goods and everything between, these are the newest eateries that you need to try to start the new year off right. 


Get Your Cluckin’ Hot Chicken at Claudi B’s

Toyota Music Factory | 370 W. Las Colinas Blvd. | 945.345.0482

The hot chicken phenomenon, born out of a scorned lover’s revenge 80+ years ago in Nashville, landed in Irving last fall. Claudi B’s is the newest restaurant to open in the Toyota Music Factory and it's the latest DFW area eatery to bring homegrown happiness to foodies who like it hot! We all need some spice in our lives, right? 
*Claudi B's is temporarily closed this weekend.


Sweet Dreams are Made of Cream at Cold Stone

6561 Riverside Dr | 214.496.0781

Get Egg-cited about Indian Street Food at Eggholic

7750 N MacArthur Blvd | 972.685.7999

The most recent eatery to open in Irving, Eggholic features Indian-style egg dishes and Indian street foods. Its name is not egg-xactly appealing to me, but the dishes are delish-es! 


Haafiz Food Mart Packs a Sweet & Spicy Pakistani Punch

2240 W Walnut Hill Ln | 469.638.8246

Last November, Ahmed Haafiz relocated from California to debut his take-out only Pakistani cuisine. All agree, it’s the real deal.

A quicker, more casual, but still yummy P.F. Chang’s To Go just debuted in Irving, and it’s the first in Texas! Order your favorites on-site or online for curbside and delivery.


Yo, Head to Zalat for a Hot Slice, Slice Baby! 

4835 N O'Connor Rd | 469.590.0420

You're a Leo. I'm a Virgo. You say potato. I say notato. Who cares when it tastes like a slice of heaven?!? At Zalat, traditional pizzas take a back seat to inventive designer pizzas like Nashville Hot Chicken & Pickles, Elote and Loaded Notato. What's your sign and will you select that flavor?

Stay tuned for news about more swanky and sweet spots coming later this month!
