AMA Q9: What are some of your favorite hidden dining ‘gems’?

(As a reminder, this is a question I received in my first blog-style Ask Me Anything.)

Jeff Wetherbee asks, “As somebody who spends a lot of time in Austin myself, I’m curious…what are some of your favorite hidden dining ‘gems’?”

Last question! This is a fun one.

I love Radio Coffee and Beer, especially the taco trailer out back, called Veracruz.

If you want another truly Austin experience, La Barbecue is probably my favorite BBQ place in town.

For fine dining, I usually recommend South Congress Cafe, Uchi/Uchiko, or Sway.

And because Austin is known for breakfast tacos, you can’t leave town without breakfast at Taco Deli.

If you hit all these places, you’ll be set to burst. So work off the calories at my favorite outdoor places: hiking in the Greenbelt or kayaking on Lake Austin.


And a big thanks to everyone who submitted questions. This was fun!
