eating in austin

eating in austin is a sport, and one they don’t take lightly. a few of my favorites: veggie tamales & stewed okra at the eastside cafe, hibiscus mint popsicles dipped in red wine at the hotel san jose, the sticky bun at olivia’s (the fried chicken there looked pretty tasty too), the cheese/fruit plate at hotel saint cecilia, the endive/walnut salad at 24 diner, and the fried ochra at perla’s. i have a feeling we hardly scraped the surface of the yumminess in that town, even though it was a pretty epic food tour. anyone from austin want to chime in with some recommendations for our next trip?  1. alysha, matt’s girlfriend 2. chicken at olivia’s 3. paigey and kevin at hotel saint cecilia 4. kevin 5. matt and lou at perla’s 6. cheese and fruit at hotel saint cecilia *i’m pretending that we didn’t drive 35 minutes outside of the city for bbq at a place that served meat by the pound {on butcher paper with a tall stack of white bread}.

last thursday we headed to Austin for a long weekend! we photographed a wedding with 1/2 of bash,please for birds of a feather, hung out with our friend matt & his stinkin cute girlfriend (plus their two amazing dogs), explored the city, ate fried everything and had an amazing time. i came back saying “ya’ll” and and carrying an extra 3 lbs around my middle. BUT, i have so many great memories, some sweet goodies and a newfound love for that small city in the middle of texas! i get my film back today and i’ll be sharing my austin favorites soon (i shot all of our adventures on a contax g2 film camera, so excited to see them!) *we’d love to hang out with ya’ll on instagram if you’ll have us! {sarahyates & loumora}
