Sao Paulo Brazil

Last year, Adam and I were lucky enough to travel to São Paulo, Brazil, as part of a work trip. In honor of the world cup, I’m finally posting about it!
I was meeting with colleagues in São Paulo and our friend Sara had lived there for five years and was weeks away from moving back to Austin; we were very lucky to have the opportunity to experience the city while she was still there.
When you visit Brazil, you will eat Pão de Queijo (gluten-free cheese balls made with tapioca flour). …

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 …

Mandola’s is to Italian as…

Like most people, I enjoy reading reviews on sites like Yelp after visiting a restaurant from people who had similar experiences and opinions. In the case of Yelp’s 93 reviewers of Mandola’s at the Triangle, that was a small minority. I’ve been to Mandola’s 3 times and tried pizza, pasta, a sandwich, and gelato. I’ve included excerpts of some of the comments I read that I think are spot on:

Another one of those fake italian restaurants- maybe its a theme park ride version of an italian market. Although it’s a …

The Best Gelato in Austin

…is at Teo on 38th Street, no contest. I was first introduced to Teo by Sara Ballon, who turned me on to their refreshing pineapple sorbetto. Since then, I’ve gone back to Teo as often as once a week (or more) to get my fix. Usually, I have a hard time resisting their organic peanut butter and nutella but you can’t really go wrong.
