Central Market Brings UK Cheese and other Mouth Treats to Austin

Central Market is like the lover of food almost lost food forever and created memorials in her name. Food is loved, adored, admired and seen with a lust in every shop. It is a store that’s original aim was to make grocery shopping no longer be a chore, but an experience. You walk the streets of Central Market as though you’re at a farmer’s market … Continue reading Central Market Brings UK Cheese and other Mouth Treats to Austin

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?

Review of Southern Pressed Juicery in the Domain

I really used to think Aรงaรญ 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 Aรงaรญ 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

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.

When you search for your favorite thing to eat in Austin and you don’t find what you are looking for. There are only a couple of things you can do about it.

You see Raya tried really hard to find her favorite Mediterranean place in Austin.

Where to Cheaply Eat Paleo in Austin

I’ve been following the ever evolving “paleo” diet for a few years. The diet changes as we find new information out about our species and as we uncover more data. Turns out ancient cultures did eat more than bacon. Honestly diets are weird if they try to go ancient because the way people ate was based on what was around them. Most American diets try to eat the same thing year round. Us Amazon.comians.

Chef Darci’s Watermelon Lemonade Recipe

After interviewing these amazing chefs around Austin and letting you know about them, we also want to give you a taste of what they do. We asked Chef Darci for a recipe for her brighteningly sweet watermelon lemonade. After leaving I have to admit I left the watermelon slice in there, and it flavored my water all day as I refilled it.

Interview with Chef Darci from H12 Outdoor Cafe

Jason and I spent hours debating if we should go with the oldest food truck in Austin, or even the most popular for our first interview. To use our connections in the food scene for a sexy intro was against our idea of this blog. We do not want to feed you the same interview you have seen again and again. We want to show where the food scene was, where it is, and the grit of where it is going. We chose a food truck that tells the future, but has a strong beginning. Chef Darci was chosen for Austin Texas Food’s first interview because she embodies what we love about food. A passion for flavor and for where that flavor comes from.
