Italy, Napa Valley, even Mexico come to mind when thinking about the finest olive oils and vinegars in the world. Dallas, not so much--until now.

EVOO & Vin, located on Belt Line and Montfort in North Dallas, has quickly become a recognized source in the city for the best varieties of imported extra-virgin olive oils, fused olive oils, specialty oils and aged balsamic vinegars. Here are our top four picks:

Best oil to eat with popcorn Kick basic kernels up a notch with the Tunisian-made Cayenne Chili Fused Olive Oil. The peppers and oil are fused for two hours before filtering.

Best for Italian foods The Wild Mushroom and Sage Infused Olive Oil is a delicious savory combination that can take a standard creamy risotto to the next level.

Best finishing touch Yes, truffles tend to be overplayed, but the White Truffle Gourmet Oil at EVOO & Vin is made with true Italian white truffles as opposed to extracts, giving it a unique flavor profile.

Best vinegar for everyday dishes If you’re looking for a vinegar with a hint of lushness, try the Champagne Dark Balsamic Vinegar. This dark balsamic is aged and then blended with a sparkling white French Champagne. The resulting brew is ideal for marinating meat or using in salads.
