Good Wednesday afternoon!
Today I wanted to share with you a few food spots around Austin, Texas, which I tried out and loved enough so I can recommend them on my blog. Because Texas is such a big state there's a variety of food that you can enjoy. From Mexican food (or should I say Tex - Mex) through Southern comfort food and BBQ (!), let's just say there is something for everybody.
Especially for you guys, I compiled a list of three places and good eats all around Austin, so if you decide to eat your way through the city, I got you covered.
BREAKFAST - KERBY LANE CAFE
One of Kerbey Lane Cafe's core values is making sure they serve food of the highest quality and value. With that being said, they most definitely do not skimp on any ingredient, and you can tell the food is local and fresh. All of that combined with a friendly service that makes you feel like you're a part of a community, this place is definitely one worth checking out.
Because me and my friends happened to be there during breakfast time, here are their few meals from the menu.
Chilaquiles - [originally] Crispy corn tortilla strips tossed with verde sauce and then topped with two over easy eggs, queso fresco, onion, sour cream and cilantro. Served with refried black beans. My friend swapped few ingredients so it may not live up to the description completely.
Eggs Francisco - English muffin layered with scrambled eggs, bacon, avocado, tomato and queso.
Harvest omelet - a blend of bell pepper. green onion, mushroom, avocado, potatoes and cheddarjack + black beans.
LUNCH - PACO'S TACOS
1304 E. 51st
At Paco's Tacos you will find meals that originated in Mexico in 19th century, and recipes that were passed down from generation to generation for us to enjoy today. I recommend you checking out their website if you'd like to find about more history of the place. I still drool on the thought of having this authentic Mexican meal....
Chicken enchiladas with charro beans & poblano rice.
Food is not the only reason why you should step into Paco's Tacos doors. Here are few of the snapshots of the exterior to give you an idea of this unique place.
DINNER - RUBY'S BBQ
512 West 29th Street
And last but not least... dinner! For our grand finale I could not forget to include some BBQ deliciousness! This is an absolute must when in Texas. Take a look yourself.
We got a 3/4 lb. mixed combo plate of: beef, chicken, sausage, ribs + pickles. bbq beans, mustard potato salad, chunky mayonnaise potato salad and creamy coleslaw. Omnomnom........
I hope my suggestions inspired you to add these places to your to do list and more than everrrr to visit Texas and enjoy it to the fullest....
Don't forget: everything in Texas is bigger! ;)
