Keith Lee, the popular TikTok chef, is visiting Texas again, this time in Dallas. Lee traveled to Houston in December of last year to sample some of the city’s independent, locally-owned eateries. If you are unfamiliar with Lee’s dining preferences, he typically frequents mom-and-pop restaurants that are struggling to make ends meet. He buys his food, which he later tastes while driving.
Lee mentioned that this tour is unique. He has added restaurant categories to his TikTok culinary tour of Dallas. He will continue to focus on neighborhood eateries that require assistance in expanding their reach.
“Local favorites” will choose the other categories through voting in a survey on his Instagram stories. Finding a variety of restaurants run and owned by people of different ethnicities falls under the third category.
Additional food-related news: Squishmallows and McDonald’s collaborate on a new Happy Meal. Although he hasn’t stated when exactly he will be traveling to Dallas, keep an eye on his TikTok.
