Tacodeli: One of Austin’s Best Brunches

After 15 years of satisfying the taco cravings of Austinites and visitors alike, Tacodeli is as popular as ever.

They will soon open their fourth and fifth Austin locations – at Burnet and Anderson Lane and Bee Caves Road and 360 respectively. Tacodeli serves some of the freshest, most delicious tacos in town for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. They have built a well-deserved following for their house-made tortillas, spicy Doña salsa, support of local farmers and producers, and friendly staff.
I started going to Tacodeli regularly in 2005; I lived in an …

Tasty n Sons in Portland

I’m so very glad that we followed the many recommendations and visited Tasty n Sons for brunch while we were in Portland last fall. Here’s a photo of the dining room that I grabbed from their website. Don’t you love the Soup Peddler-style bicycle on the wall?
How cute is this stamp on the top of the menu? I want to have hundreds of these made so that I can wear them everywhere.

Adam and I grabbed seats on the bar near the window, and ordered glasses of Smith Teamaker tea. You …

I’m relaxing in Cenote on Cesar Chavez in East Austin on a quiet Saturday night in Austin. Cenote is as a re-purposed historic 1800′s home that has been given new life as a coffee shop on steroids. It feels like the right place to be as I’m writing my 500th post on Tasty Touring.

Built in 1887 on what was then called Water Street, the building is on Austin’s first hand-drawn map, produced for the City of Austin in 1889. The owners received the Heritage Society of Austin’s “Merit Award for Adaptive Use” in …

Monument Cafe and Market in Georgetown

Georgetown, Texas seems so far away in my mind — and it’s only a 1/2 hour drive from our house. And because a total of an hour in the car seems like such a schlep now that I don’t live in the gridlocked east coast, it took me more than a year to visit the Monument Cafe since I’d added it to my list of restaurants to check out.
This spring, the PR firm that represents Monument Cafe invited me to come meet the owner and take a tour, so Adam …

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 …
