Did Kyoten Survive Chef Otto Leaving for his Michelin?

I was very curious on whether or not Kyoten would taste just as masterful in rice and sushi rolls once Otto left for Chicago. At the least, he does seem far happier there with his dreams and ambition creating higher places to reach. As he stated in our interview with him, there’s someplace he’s trying to go but he may never reach it. Otto: The … Continue reading Did Kyoten Survive Chef Otto Leaving for his Michelin?

Why you Want Beer in your Food: Review of The Brewer’s Table

About the Brewer’s Table: In Austin, it has become rare to find a restaurant doing something truly unique. We have a thousand food trucks and half of them seem to be tacos.  According to KHOU: “Austin has seen the biggest increase in its number of food trucks over the past six years: growing from 648 in 2006 to 1,265 food trucks in 2016”. Usually, I … Continue reading Why you Want Beer in your Food: Review of The Brewer’s Table

Review of Southern Pressed Juicery in the Domain

I really used to think Açaí bowls were the knockoff versions of bento bowls. They were designed for color more than flavor and the balance was always a mixture between too sweet and cereal with berries. Around town we have many Açaí bowls that compete with each other but feel the same, and I’ve been questioning the sourcing at various places to know how they … Continue reading Review of Southern Pressed Juicery in the Domain

Interview with Wrigleyville

Wrigleyville shocked us with their hot dogs, and we had to learn more. The taste of this beef lovingly nuzzled into a fluffy bun, drooling with the juice of a real tomato makes you forsake your memories and pledge allegiance to Vienna and Chicago style hot dogs. The owners even went to Hot Dog Academy to refine their skills before opening the truck. Located down … Continue reading Interview with Wrigleyville

Interview with Chef Otto from Kyoten

Otto Phan is a Chef. He is uncollaborative, self-promoting, cocky, and interesting. That is what makes him a great chef. You see, Otto doesn’t just think he is the best Chef in Austin. He knows down to his perfect rice, that he is the best. Can we argue with him though? I don’t think so. The man does make immaculate sushi. His food isn’t fancy. … Continue reading Interview with Chef Otto from Kyoten

McDonald’s with the Owner

  After all these months blogging we have run into many restaurant owners with a passion for what they do. We went to McDonald’s to see if their standards of food had shifted from borderline animal abuse to something we could stomach. I was shocked by what happened. The owner’s family has owned McDonald’s franchises for 20 plus years, and he did love his restaurant. … Continue reading McDonald’s with the Owner

Top Five Food Trucks in Austin

For years Austin has been known for our food truck scene. With movies like Chef and TV shows such as The Great American Food Truck Race being filmed here, Austin has been named a top city for food trucks. We have had our share of mouth changers: Chi’lantro, Peached Tortilla, and East Side King have all three been named best food truck in Austin in … Continue reading Top Five Food Trucks in Austin

Happy Hour at Toulhouse with AFBA

Austin Food Blogger’s Alliance let us into their tribe a few months ago. We were both thrilled to just imagine it. Talking food with people that loved it as much as we do. Obviously every human loves food. We eat it to survive. But these people also worship it. We birth it from our brains as recipes. We dress it up with dark chocolate ganache or a leaf of basil. We stay at home on Friday nights to imagine rosemary infused donuts.

It is our love. A marriage to the senses of flavor, the sense of beauty and the taste of a memory.
