If you love Thai food, save this for later! Sweet Rice is a great spot for a quick bite! We stopped in for a fast casual lunch, and the flavorful Lao + Thai fare didn’t disappoint. They have 5 locations across DFW, one of which is off W Mockingbird near Love Field, making it a great pit stop for a quick bite! With the Bluffview + Love Field area expanding with various options like On Rotation Brewing, it’s nice to see a variety of developments and cuisines joining the mix!

Sweet Rice is a fast casual concept with locations in Texas + Washington. The dishes are primarily street food inspired by bites you can find while exploring the streets of both Laos and Thailand. Their menu is an expansive collection of family recipes spanning sweet, savory, crunchy, and healthy options.
LAO AND THAI CUISINE
Half the menu is made up of staple faves like pho, fried rice, spring rolls, and curry, but you’ll also see unique, traditional offerings like Lao style papaya salad, duck fat fried rice, sweet rice chicken wings, and Lao Spicy Sausage, which we had to try! It's out of this world with flavor, and we paired it with cashew chicken and crispy pork egg rolls! And we couldn’t forget sticky rice + mango for dessert! But whether you’re in the mood for a classic like pad Thai, or you want something new like their signature Thai Spicy Basil, there’s something for everyone from soups + salads to noodles to rice dishes and more!
You can find Sweet Rice brick + mortars in Frisco, Allen, Mansfield, Carrollton, and now Dallas as of last summer! They’re open til 9 PM on weeknights and 10 PM on Fridays and Saturdays, making it a go-to for a quick meal, for Thai tea, or for pick-up when you’re craving your faves!
