Tasty Tuesdays: Austin’s Best Cupcake

I was honored to be a judge a couple weeks ago in Jennie Chen’s Cupcake Smackdown at One 2 One bar in downtown Austin and have been meaning to write about the event since then. Below is a cute photo taken by a Statesman A-List photographer of Devrah Otten, winner of the tasting competition portion of That Takes The Cake in 2008 and 2009, me, Jennie, and Natanya Anderson, Fete and Feast blogger and Next Food Network Star hopeful.
I’m not going to get into the results here but some …

Tasty Tuesdays: Sweet Austin Treats to Beat the Heat

Great minds must think alike because Yelp sent an e-mail today titled “Lick the Heat Away with Yelp” and the Daily Texan now seems to have a “Tasty Tuesdays” feature. Bryan, Andy and I talked last Thursday about the topic for this week’s Tasty Tuesday and KGSR show on Thursday and we settled on “Sweet Austin Treats to Beat the Heat.”
For me, the ultimate Austin summer treat is a gelato or sorbetto from Teo on 38th Street. My favorite is the peanut butter nutella and I also love their real …

Tasty Tuesdays: Best BBQ in Central Texas

I’m a bit obsessed with Texas barbecue, or BBQ, depending on your personal preference, and have written about it quite a bit.

Over the past year, I’ve eaten at and written about BBQ tours in Lockhart, fancy BBQ at Lamberts, filling up before wine tasting at Opie’s, Wyatt McSpadden’s Texas BBQ book, a …

Tasty Tuesdays: Best Sushi in Austin

I’m a sucker for new food trailers and after hearing about Sushi-A-Go-Go on Twitter last week, I had to check it out. I drove from my office up to Manor Road where this new trailer was parked after being enticed by their daily Twitter special of $1 edamame and fresh tuna and yellowtail roll for $5.50. This spot is cash-only and I had $8 so I rounded out my purchase with a $0.50 house made Go-Go-Sauce and left the rest for tip.
Kayo Asazu is the owner of Sushi-A-Go-Go and she …
