As part of my SXSW 2014 recovery process – which is including gallons of coconut water and kale salads – I totally missed the memo on St. Patrick’s Day yesterday; I didn’t even wear green! Can eating green count instead?
But back to this Austin thing. Given that this was my third trip there, I am starting to get some street cred (proof: I got a local’s discount on my Sunday massage). But as with any city, there is always more to see, do, and eat.
While yesterday I recounted some of my frequented spots, today is all about the new noms. Through the musical madness, I did sneak in some pretty amazing food. Along with tacos and brisket, Austin has some great food trucks as well that are easy to find and extended their hours during SXSW. The food prices are comparable to that of SF (except of course, for breakfast tacos). Overall however, the food seems to be less seasonally driven, mostly due to the Texas climate, which isn’t ideal for a lot of produce that we grow in California.
Austin is definitely a city I’d like to visit again, although in a non-festival setting where I can sleep before 6 a.m.! For now, a question for you readers:
If you have been to Austin, where do you like to eat?
