David Alan of Annie’s and The Tipsy Texan Mixes Drinks on KGSR

The Winston Churchill High School class of 1996 is having a good week in the world of food media — Dhani Jones was on Man v. Food, David Freedenberg will be on No Reservations, and I was on the KGSR “Late Show” for my weekly Tasty Touring segment.
While a local radio gig may not be as big a deal as being a regular guest with Anthony Bourdain, or having your own show like Dhani Tackles the Globe, my mom still thinks it’s cool.

This Monday, Sept. 7 at 9 p.m. CT, …

When Adam and I unloaded our bikes, pumped up the tires, and arrived at Porfirio’s Tacos in East Austin this morning at 11, there were at least 30 people already there — eating, hanging out, and ready to tour!
Adam adds green salsa to …

Suggested Route: Saturday’s East Austin Taco Bike Tour

I spent my lunch hour today driving the route for the East Austin Taco Bike Tour. You guys would have giggled if you had seen me using my broken Spanish to communicate to some of the people at the stops for Saturday. Muchos personas van a comer tacos aqui en Sabado. Quisieramos comer muchos tacos. Gracias! According to Google Translator, this means: Many people go to eat tacos here on Saturday. We would like to eat many tacos.
Although the tour this Saturday is self-guided, we wanted to provide you with …

May 16: East Austin Taco Tasting Bike Tour

I hope you will join us for the East Austin Taco Tasting Bike Tour where we joined forces with Mando from Taco Journalism to put together a fun, bicycle-friendly itinerary for Saturday, May 16 at 11 a.m.
The tour will be self-guided and will include stops hand-picked by Mando who is arguably, Austin’s “Rey de Tacos.” You can read about some of the taco tours he has participated in here and here.
Two of the stops were featured in the Austin American-Statesman‘s cover story on Mando and Austin taco joints — Porfirios …
