My sister and friends surprised me at brunch this Sunday to celebrate the big 30. I’ve been wanting to try out Caracol for some time now and the brunch buffet did not disappoint. A few of my favorites from the menu were the marinated watermelon salad, lambchops, firewood roasted oysters, fresh tamarind juice, and the tres leches. It’s been a busy month so far with dinner parties with friends and family throughout, starting back at […]

The past few days have been spent in celebration with friends. I stopped by Myth & Symbol on Friday to enjoy drinks and sweets in celebration of their first year anniversary. It’s hard to believe that only last year, we were all standing in the same place celebrating the grand opening of my friends’ new endeavors. Monday night was spent having a good, long dinner with a few close ones, catching up and sharing delicious […]

My friends and I finally got together for a belated Christmas dinner last Tuesday to celebrate the end of 2012 and exchange a few presents with one another. Tuesdays & Thursdays are steak nights at MKT Bar downtown, so we took advantage of that and most of us enjoyed some delicious 12 ounce chops with chimichurri sauce and frites. And even though I’ve never been a huge pita fan, I have to say the pita […]

This gourmet sandwich shop uses fresh and, wait for it, local ingredients. Each sandwich order, as if it wasn’t already enough,  comes with two sides ranging from quinoa, or homemade cous cous to delicious cabbage slaw.  The vibe here is chill with locals coming in and out, hanging […]

I think one of the best things about this last Austin trip was finally dining at Uchi. Between the three of us, we had a twelve course meal that we all agreed was probably one of the best dining experiences we’ve had.  The food was so delicious and fresh and the service was timely enough for us to enjoy and savor all the beautiful flavors of each dish. My top favorite, if I had to […]

Austin: day 3

day 3:     Sunday was spent eating Japanese food all day. A quick brunch at Zen where the rice dishes are just as good as it looks and the details in all the light fixtures are oh so charming. I was a bit disappointed that some of the stores I really wanted to visit were closed so early on Sundays, but I did manage to stop by Waterloo Records where Shearwater was having an in-store performance. […]

day 2:     We met up with Benjamin and Trang for lunch at South Congress cafe before going on our shopping spree. (They have a cute lifestyle blog here) What was intended to be  quick bite ended up being a three hour lunch, but it wasn’t too bad considering they make such delicious bloody mary’s and spending time with friends and good food is always something I enjoy. … love Trang’s classic and clean style … […]
