kBird to move from food truck to brick-and-mortar location

kBird, the Thai food truck Richard Glasgow has operated in Hillcrest since 2012, is moving to a brick-and-mortar location. “As soon as [he] can” — certainly within the calendar year — Glasgow will begin serving up his authentic Thai food out of the former home of Palette Catering, 600 N. Tyler St. The new restaurant will be counter service and have a handful of tables and chairs. "Maybe two dozen chairs," Glasgow said. Hours, restricted by the location’s zoning, will be 10:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Tamalittle offers up pastes (savory stuffed pastries, a central Mexican specialty)

If you've ever spent time in central Mexico, there's a good chance you fell in love with pastes, a savory stuffed pastry a bit like the British Cornish pasty — or like an empanada, with the difference being that the innards aren't precooked. A new Mexican joint in West Little Rock specializing in pastes just opened last Friday. Tamalittle will be serving up pastes stuffed with mole, chicken tinga, potatoes and chorizo, beans and chorizo, and cochinita (slow-roasted pulled pork). Plus a selection of tamales. Sounds delicious.
