Damian’s Cajun Soul Café
185 S. Watson Rd.
Yelp: 4.5 stars – 103 reviews The workweek never tasted so good. You actually have something to look forward to Monday through Friday at Damian’s (which, sadly, isn’t open at nights or on weekends), because the menu changes daily! For seafood étoufée that melts in your mouth, better get there early on Wednesday. Or try Tuesday for gumbo that will knock your socks off. Not feeling seafood? Go on Friday for a spicy and oh-so juicy pork chop. Come to think of it, whatever day it is, head to Damian’s because all the food is amazing here.

Yelp: 4 stars – 66 reviews The ingredients may rotate at this tiny café near the university, but the quiche is here to stay.

Tandoor Indian Restaurant
532 Fielder North Plz.
Yelp: 4 stars – 104 reviews Let’s face it—buffets aren’t exactly newsworthy. Usually, the food has been sitting out too long and the options are limited and mediocre. Not so with Tandoor Indian Restaurant. This is the the you’ve been waiting for. The lunch buffet is hot, very hot. And speaking of hot the chicken tikka masala is all anyone who's tasted it can talk about. But no Indian meal is complete without naan, and at Tandoor its baked fresh from the oven and practically melts in your mouth. Don’t forget the samosas! They are perfect combination of flaky goodness and spicy kick. So, maybe one more trip the buffet...

2221 E. Lamar Blvd.
Yelp: 4 stars – 45 reviews The location of Cacharel may be subtle (it’s inside an unmarked office building) but rest assured, upon entering you will be transported to another city, gay Paris! The dinner menu is prix fixe and includes taste bud teasers like sautéed scallops on a bed of cauliflower puree and fried leeks. The swordfish Piccata arrives on a bed of angel hair pasta and lemon butter caper sauce and it is très bien. Pair this with some guy strumming romantic ballads on a guitar and you’ve got the makings for a perfect Parisian date. Oui, oui!

Glazed Doughnuts & Café
4306 Matlock Rd.
Yelp: 4 stars – 45 reviews The specialty at Glazed Doughnuts & Café certainly is…OK maybe “healthy” isn’t the word but they are made using fresh and natural ingredients, unbleached flour, and flavorings are that vegan. That’s gotta count for something, right? Rock the Plain Jane doughnut if simple and sweet is your thing or sample the Snow White—a yeast raised doughnut glazed to perfection and covered with shaved coconut.

From fajitas and enchiladas to chips, salsa and guacamole—you will not have a bad meal here. Salud!
