Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches

If you’re at ACL today, I recommend keeping an eye out for Coolhaus Ice Cream Truck on Barton Springs Road — probably at Thom’s Market. According to their Twitter feed, they have been camped out there all weekend serving up delicious ice cream sandwiches to the music loving masses.

The Austin Coolhaus truck is the second location nationwide, the first is in L.A. According to New York Street Food, they will be bringing Coolhaus to New York City in 2011.
Coolhaus is an architectural dessert miracle with a wonderful …

Brooklyn’s Buttermilk Channel Brunch

This post is especially drool-worthy and I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. When we were in New York, our friends recommended brunch at Buttermilk Channel. It sounded so fluffy and delicious!
I was curious about the freshly-made sour cream donuts so ordered one up for us to share. It was good, but a little heavy for my taste. At $2, it was a worthwhile investment.
Laura ordered the Eggs Huntington and shared a bite with me. I loved the buttermilk biscuit!
Adam ordered the Short Rib Hash and that hash sure was …

Soup Dumplings NYC

I spent my birthday last week in NYC — picking up coffee at Roasting Plant, going to a $5 community yoga class at Integral Yoga , and then taking the train down to Chinatown for soup dumplings and a massage.
When I asked folks on Twitter where to go for soup dumplings, the response was a resounding Joe’s Shanghai (thanks to @jenneraustin and @supertsai). Joe’s Shanghai has locations in Flushing, Queens,  Chinatown, midtown Manhattan, and Tokyo.
Adam first turned me on to soup dumplings and has talked about us making them at …

The Tigress Brings Out the Feline

I’m kicking myself for writing this because The Tigress is the kind of place that makes you feel like you “discovered it” and are in on a secret. Add to that the fact that it’s tiny and to be honest with you, I don’t want anyone to go except for my friends.
That said, I also want to share my love for The Tigress with the world so that everyone can experience it’s sweetness and so it will continue to thrive.
Located on North Loop, the only signage for The Tigress is …

Beautiful, Savory, Swimmers at a Maryland Crab Feast

I visited home this summer and joined my parents and brother for a crab feast at Fisherman’s Crab Deck in Kent Island on the Chesapeake Bay. It takes almost an hour and a half to get to Kent Island from their apartment in Rockville, but to us, the experience is worth every mile.
While we waited for a table, we walked over to the nearby marina, where we met a crab boat salesman who was catching his dinner. He showed us how you can tell male and female blue crabs apart …
