Eating Our Way Through Austin
Manuels on Congress Street twice. That really says something about the restaurant as there are plenty of wonderful dining destinations in the city, but the menu options had us returning to sample more. Their guacamole was really good. And they had food presentation down pat.
Downtown Burger, which was just across the street from the convention center. It was my splurge for walking 20+ blocks that day. I also tried the Vietnamese food truck and ate a delicious chicken, herb, and vegetable dish, but I forgot to get a photo.
The Backspace, which was recommended to us by Lizzy House and our hotel bartender. The restaurant is small, but packs a punch with its Neapolitan-inspired menu. The Brussels sprouts were amazing. Wood fired and topped with lemon juice and bread crumbs.
Moonshine and we ate there twice as well. This was the only barbecue I got my hands on in Austin.
