I want people to understand why people move to Austin and surrounding areas. In recent years, we have become a mecca for the best live music in the country. We call it the "music capital of the world lives."
Not only is there music, we have lakes, mountains, state parks, museums, a lot of sights, but we have a lot of restaurants. If you have visited Austin, you know that our motto is "Keep Austin Weird." Parts of Austin are rare, the pieces are, but I would give an idea of the two. I am not a paid critic, I have champagne tastes and am by no means the authority of the room. I like to share good places to see and sandals in a variety of upscale restaurants.
Most tourists come to a place of my favorites on Lake Travis. The Oasis has become a destination point, the food is not much, but the margaritas and sunsets. The towers of Oasis on Lake Travis, with panoramic views of the lake and surrounding hills.
Come sunset, the entire audience breaks into applause at the beauty of the lake and at the end of the day. It is rare to find a peaceful vision, but fortunately, Austin has many attractions. The food at the Oasis offers many foods such as nachos, burgers, steaks and salads. Again, it's more about the landscape here, but it is a must do when in Austin. The Oasis is located on Highway 620 near CR 2222.
Another destination is Salt Lick in Driftwood, Texas. This is an original set, rustic Texas barbecue. Bring your own drink, sit family style, and enjoy some of the best barbecue on earth. Succulent chest, ribs and sausage dishes piled in huge w / sides of homemade potato salad, coleslaw and beans mmm mmm good. You do not have to dress for the occasion, everyone is happy in shorts and shirts. This is a casual dining experience that will leave your mouth watering for more. Having a large group, they are equipped for it and welcome. Located in the RM 1826 Driftwood. County Line is my second favorite and I can not even begin to talk about the best barbecue in the land.
Now, for a pass up - I love these three meat restaurants seafood, a stunning, unique customer service and excellent. They are:
Finn & Porter, McCormick & Schmicks and Trulucks. OMG! Each offer fresh seafood daily and have never had anything that was not very great at any of these restaurants. Trulucks has everything that can be eaten fresh Florida stone crab claws every Monday night. Make it a ritual.
McCormick & Schmicks now in the Doman (luxury shopping), try the salmon - Oh Baby is divine. Finn & Porter is an excellent dish of oysters baked with gruyere cheese sauce, lemon and garlic and onion seasoning bearnaise. To die for. These establishments either to make a great first date and a lasting impression. The dress is of higher quality.
My favorite place to eat on my birthday is Fonda San Miguel in the North Loop Dr. is a first class restaurant has been open for over 30 years. It has a kitchen interior of Mexico, second to none. When Fonda San Miguel, because it's always a pleasure for me, so my special birthday.
The ceviche is excellent, along with black beans (a personal favorite), but my very very favorite are the enchiladas with gooey Swiss cheese and sour cream. My family prefers the stuffed teddy Chile, which are also very delicious. If you have not tried this unique restaurant called Reserve, is always full. To the best of Tex-Mex in Texas, working in Rio Grande, in Round Rock and Hutto. Consistently, the best Tex-Mex in the area!
If different is what you want, try to Hudson on the curve. Is another point that the cries of culinary delight! Excite your palate the taste of the wild boar, Maryland crab cakes, veal, venison, lamb, and the list goes on and everything is delicious. Hudson is a highlight due to changes in tastes, herbs and seasonings. I found that many people from out of state this kitchen absolutely drool over central Texas.
I could go on for hours w / a list of hot spots in Austin. One more worth mentioning, then I have to prepare food as this has come to my creativity. Top off your delicious meal with a visit to the shelter of a dining Zoot sweet
