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 …

A Taste of Austin’s Noble Pig

Last night, I had the pleasure of being invited to a tasting at the Noble Pig. Visiting the Noble Pig has been high on my list to visit since it opened last fall. But as my friends can tell you, I rarely venture outside of the twenty minute driving radius from my house. Since Noble Pig is about thirty minutes from home, it just didn’t happen until last night’s food blogger event.
And let me tell you, Noble Pig is totally worth the trek!

Owner/Chefs John Bates and Brandon Martinez started us …

Tarka brings the heat to the South Austin Restaurant Scene

Tarka Indian Kitchen felt like a fast casual chain which surprised me when I checked it out because there is only one location. It’s owned by the Clay Pit people and is a fast-casual version of that restaurant with cozy chairs and an appealing atmosphere but without the special dining experience feel.
After enjoying a fantastic tasting meal in a comfortable and relaxed environment, I found myself not minding the idea at all of finding a Tarka in mini-malls across the land.
My friend Addie and I wanted to try everything on …

Snack Bar Austin Finally Opens

I was very excited to learn that Snack Bar on South Congress is officially open after months of construction, waiting, and two soft openings — one during SXSW in March and one during Austin City Limits Music Festival in early October.
I called and was told that they will be open for the next week during breakfast, lunch, and for afternoon snacktime — closing at 4 p.m. I believe their hours will stretch much later once they have a chance to hire more staff and get in the groove.
This spot, vacated …

Tasty Tuesday: Best Office Lunch Caterer

If you work downtown like me, you might have the option once in a while to order in lunch for the office. I love those days since budget and distance can be less of an encumbrance than it would be if I was just going out to grab something quick and cheap.

At my company, our old standbys have tended to be Austin Java or Do Good Deli. What we loved about Do Good Deli is that they offered tasty, locally-sourced lunches and 100% of the proceeds went to Caritas. Sadly, …
