Campisis (Dallas Restaurant)
Apr 17, 2013 - When you want to get authentic Italian food, the only real way to get it is to get it from an Italian...or at the very least, someone who has their hands on real Italian recipes and make it the way the Italians would. What we want is authenticity, not the watered down American version of Italian food. Based on what our Dallas party bus rental customers have to say, this is something that you can expect from Campisis, one of Dallas’ oldest restaurants.
Instead of coming off as airy, Campisis is a family-owned business that dates all the way back to 1904. The current owner and managers of the restaurants are now great grandchildren to creators of the eatery who came from Sicily to New Orleans. After the end of World War II, the settlers decided to buy up a bar in downtown Knox area called Idle Hour and because the bar came with a small workable kitchen in the back, they explored the idea of serving pizza pies with the drinks. Campisis boasts of being the first ever restaurant in Texas to ever serve up pizza pie with their drinks.
The owner strongly holds onto the advice given to him by his great grand uncle who told him that Campisis was built on hand shakes and hellos and that is the way it should be. Till this very day, that is how Campisis is run.
The decor and theme for the restaurants, according to loyal customers, have undergone some changes, of course. On the exterior, it might look somewhat outdated and old but on the inside, everything is modern, urban, cool and well decorated. The dimly lit atmosphere adds a nice touch to the classy feel that the decor gives off. The most important thing is that they serve real Italian dishes with the fanfare that is so apparent in other similar eateries.
Basically, the locals think of it as a nice place to catch up with friends over some food and drinks and maybe watch a couple of games together on the main television provided at the dining area. Their specialities includes the mouth-watering recipe of thin crust pizza and of course, the most important thing to note would be the fact that the chefs are often generously topped and comes with fresh salad to please your palate.
The restaurant also caters for takeaways and catering for gatherings and events. In the meantime, if you are looking around for affordable Dallas party bus rental packages, please do not hesitate to give US Coachways a call and speak to one of our professionally trained customer service personnel.
The Asian American Community in Dallas
Feb 14, 2013 - Back then, when immigration was popular, the most infiltrated parts of the country remained to be Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco and New York city. Because of its location, Asians did not make their way and found roots here until much later. Only in 1869 when railroad workers from China came along that the Asian-American community started becoming a really big thing. And the Asian culture forms and contributes hugely to the diverse culture in Dallas, even till this very day. The Americans believe that more Asians came along and influenced the locals with their deep understanding about business and entrepreneurism and hard-working mentality.
The largest Asian community is none other than DFW Chinatown and many considers it to be one of the biggest tourist attraction here in Dallas. This is a conglomeration of culture, shopping, commerce, history and entertainment. What is interesting is that the very people who worked and worked the businesses here in Chinatown live nearby, most of them having found roots and formed their own communities at the neighboring neighborhoods. DFW Chinatown does not only bring you a whole host of Chinese-related stuff but also Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean, Malaysian and other fantastic cuisine from many other different parts of Asia.
For business people who are here for a quick business-related tour, they will find the Dallas Asian Trade District a haven on earth! Located slightly north of the downtown Dallas area, off the Interstate I-35E, is a trade district of more than three hundred different stores, cafes, and restaurants with Asian themes. Basically, this is where you can find stuff imported from countries like Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia and many other countries.
Sometimes, people get curious about how the Asian community is holding up here in American soil. What kind of homes do they live in, where do their kids go to school, what kind activities do they like to do together as a family, and who their friends are here? You can find the answer to the above questions, pretty much, when you take a Dallas party bus rental quick drive around Garland, Texas, a small suburban area near Lake Ray Hubbard. The city is slightly off Dallas but still worth a visit. Here, you will see a conglomeration of culture and activities as many professionals call this place home even when they are working at the downtown Dallas area. The community, some are surprised, are extremely active and supportive of each other and also the art and culture scene.
If that isn’t enough, there is always Dallas’ Little India at intersection I-75 and also Little Pakistan in Carrolton. There are smaller Asian American communities around Plano, Arlington and Mesquite too.
