We got home from our Austin trip Monday night, and I feel as though I’m still recovering a bit. It was a great vacation filled with food, music, and laughs. One thing I hadn’t known about Austin was the amount of food trucks around the town. I loved it! It’s such a unique town with so much to do and the nicest people around.
I thought I’d share some of my food from the trip, since that’s what Austin is known for. I didn’t worry one second about indulging; I tried to stay in the moment and enjoy the food.
First and most importantly- Voodoo Doughnuts. I think this picture says it all. It was absolutely worth it. We went in the middle of the day, and only waiting maybe five minutes. Choosing the flavors was by far the hardest part.
To counteract the doughnuts, I found a juice truck that had my name all over it. I got a wheat grass shot the first time (my husband even joined me in that) and an acai bowl the second time.
What’s Austin without a little barbecue. Our friends took us to the truck, Mickletawait, where we shared brisket, lamb, sausage, ribs, and grits. My husband was in heaven.
While the barbecue meat was more for Tim, the tacos were right up my ally. Just like the doughnuts, just picking which kind of taco was the worst part! I went with grilled mahi mahi from Lazarus Brewery, and they were fantastic! I could have easily eaten double this amount.
Finally breakfast. We went to brunch twice while down there. The first was a small diner, Kerbey’s, where I choose a healthier option for some good fuel. An egg white omelet with lots of veggies and avocado.
We also went to L’estelle House on Rainey street on our last day. Here I let my basic girl out and ordered an avocado toast with a perfectly drippy egg.
The food was absolutely incredible on this trip; I know I could go back several times and find more hidden unique gems for each and every meal. It was a great trip, and now that I’m home, I’m getting in extra vegetables to get back to my routine.
