Two of Austin’s favorite Mexican restaurants are taking Cinco de Mayo celebrations from mild to red hot! This week on We are Austin, we’re tasting a variety of authentic dishes…a sampling from the Taste of Mexico happening May 5th at the Mexic-Arte Museum.
It’s Puro San Antonio in every sense of the word! No visit to the Alamo City is complete without a stop at La Margarita. Challenge your palate with some of the most exciting dishes from across the border, including their Sizzling Fajitas — the first place EVER in the United States to serve them this way!
Continue to think local and green in 2015 – and feel motivated to take the reigns on fresh cuisine! The clock starts now on wiser eating habits with guilt-free soups, salads, and smoothies that don’t skimp on taste or the nutrients our bodies crave…
Experience where hot Havana nights come alive at one of Austin’s newest hangouts. Pleasant Storage Room is tucked into 4th Street in the heart of downtown’s Warehouse District. The exposed brick, marble counter tops and brass fixtures juxtaposed with graffiti and old-world tile, give Austinites a taste of the fascinating island culture of Cuba…
Keep it simple – and keep it Texas! Once you step inside, there’s no mistaking where you are. Every nook and cranny of the Hofbräu & Beer Garden is an homage to our love of the Lone Star State. As rodeo season approaches, expect the Hofbrau’s two locations to be packed with folks in the mood for live country music and a legendary Dos-a-Rita or two.
Farm-fresh ingredients – with emphasis on the “fresh” part! Happy Hour is a tempting time frame for La Condesa – an award-winning modern Mexican restaurant in downtown Austin – but then again so is just about every time.
No cook, no hassle! Easy recipes that take mere moments to assemble. Soups, salads…sandwiches like this chunky chicken salad from the legendary Gristmill restaurant in historic Gruene. And, of course, ceviche for the summer months ahead! Enjoy!
Serve it chilled for a steamy, Summer day or have it hot for that fiery flavor, Cooking Connections has a pre-cooked shrimp ceviche that’s ready in mere moments if you play your cards right
These summer days are just packed, aren’t they? With endless amounts of errands and running around to do this summer, I find that the best ways to unwind are often the simplest. Case in point: how about an easy dish…one that requires very little preparation but packs a lot of flavor.
Fresh fish and just the right amount of spice are the keys to Boudro’s delicious ceviche. The weather in San Antonio is perfect for this light, refreshing dish. Imagine sitting on the banks of the San Antonio River Walk sipping Boudro’s famous Prickly Pear Margarita and watching the world go by.
