I absolutely recommend Somnio’s Cafe in South Austin. Locally grown organic food. Cute, cozy house with a nice ambiance. BYOB. Generous portions for a good price. You really can’t go wrong with this place. It’s a perfect place to bring a few friends, a bottle of wine or a few good beers, and a big appetite. [...]

A few years ago, the Hyde Park/North Loop area was pretty lacking in the fast food breakfast/lunch offerings. There was a handful of good coffee shops, restaurants, and hang out spots…but the ready-to-go meal options (especially of the vegan variety) were in short supply. Lucky for me though, this has started to change! I live and [...]

Hello everyone.  I’m settled back in Austin and ready to write about food again. And to recover from my year-long hiatus from this blog, I’m going to write about Counter Culture, a vegan and raw food trailer that recently sprung up on North Loop! Miguel and I had talked about starting a vegan trailer on [...]

Dhaba Joy is a vegan bakery located next to 29th and Guadalupe, next to Toy Joy and across the street from Vulcan Video. The only thing not vegan about Dhaba Joy is that coffee drinks can be made with organic dairy milk instead of soy milk. Everything else about it though is 100% vegan. All [...]

I really love Titaya’s Thai Cuisine. The restaurant is clean and comfortable, they have a great lunch special ($6.50, M-F from 11:00am to 3:00pm), and food portions are large and delicious. Another thing I like about this place is that when you order something extra spicy, they take you seriously and add lots of spice [...]

I just discovered Bombay Express recently because a coworker recommended it to me. (thanks Dale!) It’s located near Curry in Hurry on Parmer Lane, although it’s just off of I35. They’re open Tuesday through Sunday from 11:00am to 9:00pm. Like Curry in Hurry, Bombay Express also unfortunately uses Styrofoam containers and plastic silverware. Food is [...]

Taqueria la Canaria is a little taco stand on Airport and 51st street. I used to pass it every day to go to work. One day I decided to stop and check it out. Although it is a very meat heavy place, their beans are vegetarian (no lard, no meat stock) and both the beans [...]

Soon I will be leaving Austin for a year. Before I leave, I’m going to try to write a brief review of all the Austin food places I like. I’ll start with Curry in Hurry. Curry in Hurry offers great Indian lunch meals at a decent price. Each meal is about $6 and you get [...]

Aster’s Ethiopian is my new addiction. It’s quick, spicy, and yummy. It’s a little too pricey to eat there regularly ($9.95 for an entree and 3 sides; $12.95 for a vegetarian sample platter with all 8 veggie dishes), but it’s a lot of food and large enough to split into two meals. Also the staff [...]

Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse is one of my favorite places to eat and hang out. It’s casual, comfortable, and makes a great place to study or work on projects (as long as you don’t come during one of their really crowded times). Their coffee is great, their vegan cornbread is great, and their tofu scramble is [...]
