Devouring the Statesman Dining Guide
Did you know that about seven times more restaurants opened than closed in the past year in Austin, Texas according to the Statesman?
This isn’t hard for me to believe in that I have a hard time keeping up with all of the new spots that are opening all around town — especially all of the food trailers!
After reading through the Austin360 Dining Guide, Mike Sutter’s recommendations for dishes and meals he enjoyed during his first year as Statesman food critic, I decided it was time to make my own list of spots I need to try.
Some of these spots are new, some have been around forever, and others are a bit above my usual price range so I’ll have to wait for a special occasion.
They include Bennu Coffee, Buenos Aires Cafe East, The Carillon, Chen’s Noodle House, East Side Show Room, Elroy Sausage Co., Fabi and Rosi, Fricano’s Deli, Garrido’s, Hoffbrau, Justine’s, La Condesa, brunch at Lamberts, Restaurant Jezebel, Taquerias Arandas No. 5, Wink, and Zoot.
Others that I need to give a second shot are Mulberry, Olivia, and Perla’s.
Spots not mentioned in the dining guide that I’d like to try include Bananarchy, Chubby Hug Happy Fun Noodle Time, Counter Culture, Defresh Mode, Get Sum Dim Sum, and Me So Hungry.
