If you’re looking for a delicious spot to stop and eat in a couple of locations in the DFW area, I want to let you in on some of the first locations of Modmarket to open in Texas. These fast casual Farm Fresh Eateries are worth checking out.
While I have had the chance to already indulge in breakfast at the Flower Mound, TX Modmarket (which opened last month), I was invited as part of a group of bloggers to have lunch at the newest location in Plano this past week.
The owner’s Anthony & Rob started Modmarket because they wanted food that:
was made from scratch using simple, farm fresh, whole ingredients
was fairly quick
was not too expensive
could be eaten everyday and sustain your health, and the environment’s too
And we were given a chance to see if they lived up to their claims. Spoiler alert… they most certainly did!
First we were able to try a couple of their leafy green entrées. The first one they brought out was their Superfood Salad – Spinach/kale blend, quinoa pilaf, feta, carrot, almonds, red grapes, champagne vinaigrette
And then we got a taste of the Thai Coconut Salad – mixed greens, roasted chicken, grated coconut, cucumber, roasted sweet potato, peanut mango dressing. This was seriously so good and I took leftovers home and then had it for dinner yet too!
Then we tried out a couple of Modmarket’s hand-tossed, brick-oven pizzas.
The Bacon Corn Pizza is comfort food at its finest. The whole grain crust is topped with creme fraiche, roasted corn, all natural, nitrate free bacon, 3 cheese blend and basil. Don’t presume to share this one 😉
Next up was the M’Rita Pizza.
Fresh mozzarella, organic red sauce, basil, and whole grain dough makes for a good option for those looking for a meal without meat.
Now let’s talk sandwiches. The Basil Chicken certainly hit the spot. Roasted chicken, basil aioli, tomato, provolone, arugula, red onions all on an Izzio’s ciabatta.
For a bit lighter fare there’s the Arugula Mozz which has fresh mozzarella, basil, basil aioli, balsamic vinaigrette, arugula, tomato on an Izzio’s ciabatta.
I think one of the prevailing things consumers want to know about their food these days is what’s in it, which is why it’s great that Modmarket provides calorie and ‘macronutrient’ information on their menus and receipts. The macronutrient information gives you the number of grams for fat, carbs, and protein that make up your meal. There’s no surprises after you’ve ordered on how many calories you’ve just put away!
Modmarket excels at freshly made meals and are happy to adjust what they can for those that have dietary requests.
The Modmarket Plano, TX location is at 8400 Preston Road, and you can find the one in Flower Mound, TX at 3651 Justin Road. Be on the lookout for another location opening soon just north of Downtown Dallas on Walnut Hill Lane.
