Austin Eats, Treats & Reviews

  • Kristen says her lunch at Soleil was great. New York Times seems to agree. Will give it a try soon.
  • Had Ceviche from TacoShack today – thanks Bryan! – was outstanding. Small but spicy and fresh. Yum!
  • Listening to my Kiwi friends complain about American coffee, I often wonder where they get their coffee when in the US. In Austin, I highly recommend (and my standards are ridiculously high):
    • Mellow Johnny’s bike shop – owned by none other than Lance Armstrong – has a terrific coffee bar – Juan Pelota’s Cafe. And get this, they even have a Kiwi Blend developed for a couple of the mechanics in the shop from NZ.
    • Houndstooth is fantastic. They know how to brew it and make it. With the added twist it is a short skip from one of Austin’s finest Sushi joints, Uchiko.
    • Down the road from me in Westlake is Lola Savannah – very good coffee and normally prepared well.

    Perhaps as a Kiwi friend I’ll get to sample Austin coffee one day, but in the meantime, any Kiwis looking for a normal-sized-cup-of-what-they’re-used-to in New York will do well to take a copy of this review from the New York times with them: We sampled from a lot of the places on this list during our time there last year and all excellent! Our favourite, Saturdays Surf in Crosby St – especially on fine days out the back of the shop
