Bolsa Mercado

I've mentioned Bolsa, one of our favorite restaurants, many times and am thrilled to tell you about their new, high-end grocery store and deli...Bolsa Mercado in Oak Cliff is just a few doors down from the popular restaurant.  Being the foodies we are we love stopping in to see what kinds of goodies they have every time we're in the area.  They serve breakfast, lunch and our favorite is their chef-prepared "Dinners for Two," which changes daily. The space is very unique and cool with all kinds of sitting areas inside and out to enjoy the day's specials.  They have comfy couches and chairs where you can sip a latte and read a book or they host all kinds of private parties as well.  The last time we were in we bought a "Dinner for Two" for $25 that included pork ribs, mixed green salad, honey whole wheat bread, potato salad and hericot vert*.  Dinner was fabulous and the portions were very generous feeding four of us.  I highly recommend you stopping by Bolsa Mercado next time you're in the OC and make dinner easy on yourself with a gourmet-cooked meal.  I promise you'll be glad you did!  =)

*Haricot vert is indeed French for green beans. Haricot meaning beans and vert meaning green. French green beans are longer and thinner than most American varieties. They are also more tender and have a more complex flavor.  If your recipe specifies haricot vert and you are unable to find them, substitute with the thinnest young green beans you can find.
