The Chef’s Line at VOX Table

It was Saturday night and I couldn’t wait to catch up with a former coworker. I was able to modify my reservation at VOX Table from the previous night with no problems. The bustling modern restaurant serves inventive New American small plates with Spanish and French flavors. It can be found within Lamar Union’s open-air…

La Barbecue

It was a cool Saturday afternoon and the light rain had stopped. It was time to go out for  lunch. It was time for more barbecue! This time I headed to the other top-rated BBQ joint in town, La Barbecue, located in the Aztec Food Trailer Park. I already experienced Franklin the day before, and now…

Bar Hopping: Rainey Street

Austin has a wide array of bars, but if you want a truly unique bar hopping experience (or just need a break from “Dirty Sixth”), head to Rainey Street!

The Omakase at Kyōten Sushiko

Migas Tacos at Veracruz All Natural

Another morning in Austin and a full day ahead of me to enjoy this great city. First things first, it was time for breakfast. I wanted breakfast tacos, more specifically, I wanted migas breakfast tacos. There are a bunch of places to get these iconic tacos, but many are convinced that Veracruz All Natural makes…

Franklin Barbecue: Worth The Wait?

If there was one place I had to go to while in Austin, it would have to be Franklin Barbecue. I’ve been hearing about this place for a few years now, always seeing it on television and reading multiple articles about it. Aaron Franklin made quite a name for himself in the barbecue world. Holder…
