Since every flight I have makes a pit stop in Dallas, I can’t begin to count the number of times I’ve passed by Ling & Louie’s disappointed because I didn’t have along enough layover to try it out. This time was different and I was more than excited to finally try it out. This is probably one of the first, if not my first, visit to an actual sit-down restaurant in the airport.
I started with the lemonade Arnold Palmer, which I apparently have the most difficult time pronouncing. It was a nice balance of sweet and tangy, although the sugar rush was a bit much for me to handle.
I ordered the miso soup and unlike the one I tried at House of Tricks in Tempe this was the more traditional size you expect. It was good especially for a cold day. It was full of tofu, seaweed and green onions.
My entree was the Mongolian beef with brown rice. Any Mongolian dish is typically served with a sweet ginger garlic sauce. My favorite Mongolian beef is from PF Changs. This dish was a very reasonable size, especially for traveling. The sauce was mild and had a balanced ginger and garlic flavor. It also had a nice sweetness to it without being overwhelming.
My server, Haley, was very prompt and friendly. All together I was in and out in about 30mins, which is pretty good considering a sit down restaurant. Since it was at the airport I imagine the servers are more than keen on keeping people on time and on to their next destination. If you find yourself near gate A13 at the DFW airport and have 30 minutes to spare, definitely drop by.
