[Austin] Trip recommendations

Hahahahaaha

I went to bears papas in nyc yesterday because they have a location near my friends’ parents’ place and I wanted to take something over (after 3y of not having seen them, thanks pandemic) that they probably wouldn’t buy themselves… always a HIT!

Yum - those skewers

@bmorecupcake no bbq? When in Rome and all… (or could you not find somewhere that adheres to what you need, it just struck me)

There’s no shame in that, some chains sell excellent food. I love Beard Papa, only get the vanilla flavor: I think it’s perfect!

It looks like you are getting all your meals to go?

Snacking at most places to try the most variety (hence so many food pictures in one day)

It sounds as if you have a handle on the newer and more varied spots. If you want some old school Tex Mex, try Ciscos, Joe’s Bakery, or El Patio. A well known newer fave of mine is Chilantro. I love the bulgogi burger with caramelized kimchi and a fried egg. For BBQ I’d suggest La BBQ. For newer Mexican try Nixta or El Naranjo. If you want a sampler, the Royal Blue Grocery on Congress has Eastside Pies, various types of tacos, and more. For a BBQ and Japanese fusion, try Loro. For a greasy taste of old Austin, I love the Texas Chili Parlor and Dirty Martin’s Kumbak.

Service was eh but I was allowed to try all the ice cream flavors (8)

But best place with least amount of stabilizers/pReservatives
