Another year, another South by Southwest Music Festival!
As this was the second time I attended the iconic craze in Austin, TX (check out food recs from last year’s trip), I thought I’d be somewhat of a pro at tackling all the music acts I wanted to see in a timely and non-sleep deprived manner.
I was not.
But I did get to spend the best of times with my 3rd Coast crew and eat some serious noms. While not a SXSW 2014 pro, I’d like to think I have some decent knowledge of food in the city; I like to do my research so when I pull up to the scene I can be ready to go. That way, at least if I’m not prepared for consecutive 5 a.m. outings, I’m prepped for the subsequent brunch – just as important, obviously.
Below are some of my favorite spots that are now almost staples of a visit to ATX – I’ll be posting a list of some new spots I visited tomorrow!
Keep Austin Hungry.
- Houndstooth Coffee – 401 Congress Ave. Get any of their rotating coffee while you work; they have great WiFi.
- Jeffrey’s Restaurant & Bar – 1204 West Lynn St. One of the best new restaurants for a reason. Get an Old Fashioned prepared tableside and go nuts with fried oysters. Order the soufflé. Both flavors.
- Daily Juice – 205 West 3rd St. One of the bset places to detox with a smoothie, juice, or wheatgrass shot. My favorite is the Green Republic with ginger added in.
- Turf n’ Surf Po Boy – 407 Lavava St. Serious, serious tacos, especialy the catfish versions.
