I wish I could tell you we were getting an Oriental noodle place. Pero no. Oak Cliff is getting two new spots from heavy hitters in Mexican food, though.
Doña Tota Gorditas is opening on Jefferson between Van Buren and Vernon sometime this week. That’s the soft opening. A grand opening is Oct. 5.
And La Paisanita, which has three Dallas outposts, including one on West Davis at Ravinia, is opening a Bishop Arts District location. La Paisanita is converting the former laundromat at Davis and Adams. We haven’t been able to reach anyone with the taquería chain so far, but it looks like they’ve got a ways to go before opening. The sign looks nice, though. The new Paisanita is between popular taquerías El Padrino and El Si Hay. Sigh. Not at that we don’t appreciate Paisanita. It’s just, can a sister get some pho in the ‘hood?
