Lunch for lexophiles

Downtown Dallas offers quite the array of dining options. Three restaurants stand out for their very creative names.

Tortaco, on Ross, melds torta (sandwich, in Mexican cuisine) and taco (a folded, filled tortilla) for a playful portmanteau.

Living up to its name, the restaurant serves tortas, tacos, and more.

Which Wich uses alliteration to delicious effect.

Which wich would you like? Step in, grab a brown bag and use the red Sharpies provided to customize your order. Give the cashier your bag, pay, and wait for your just-the-way-you-like-it wich.

While you can’t go wrong with any of the veggie wiches, the menu includes other types — Turkey, Chicken, Italian, and more — if you’re so inclined.

Finally, the punny gem that inspired this post.

The Hospitality Sweet, on Ervay
Their tagline: Sweet cakes. Good food.
Based on their chow-worthy Chipotle Black Bean Quinoa Wrap, I’m willing to bet their desserts are equally delish.

Sweetness permeates every aspect of this lovely place.
