Foodaphilia Austin

Don't you just love it when you discover that a friend has started blogging? I like how Kara announced her blog to me -- by tapping me in a restaurant meme, yum! (I love how she's been blogging for less than a month and already is more connected than I am!)

So here goes the restaurant meme...

Step 1. Add a direct link to your post below the name of the person who tagged you. Include the city/state and country you’re in.

Nicole (Sydney, Australia)
velverse (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)
LB (San Giovanni in Marignano, Italy)
Selba (Jakarta, Indonesia)
Olivia (London, England)
ML (Utah, USA)
Lotus (Toronto, Canada)
tanabata (Saitama, Japan)
Andi (Dallas [ish], Texas, United States)
Todd (Louisville, Kentucky, United States)
miss kendra (los angeles, california, u.s.a)
Jiggs Casey (Berkeley, CA, USA! USA! USA!)
Tits McGee (New England, USA)
Kat (Ontario, Canada)
Cheezy (London, England)
tafka PP (Jerusalem, Israel)
Liza ("Northern" Israel)
Beth (Dublin, Ireland)
Emily (San Francisco, CA, USA)
Mamacita (Houston, TX, USA)
Sara (Austin, TX, USA)

Step 2: List out your top 5 favorite places to eat at your location.

Manuel's. Interior Mexican. Brunch. North location has a patio for the kid to run around on. I like anything they have with crab.

TacoDeli. Fast, yummy lunch. The Mojo de Ajo Tacos are fabulous.

Mirabelle -- Mmm. Fine dining and neighborhood restaurant rolled into one. Ben and I Mirabelle as our boy-do-we-need-a-date lunch date spot. (Not to mention our fast-evening-out date night spot.)

Trulucks -- Ok, the food is good, but the wine bar with it's CO2 replacement system is better. Silver Oak by the glass, anyone?

Mandola's -- what happens when one of the great Houston restauranteaur families moves to Austin. So family friendly they provide wipes!

Step 3: Tag 5 more people.

Right... This implies I actually have relationships with people in the blogsphere... Asha, maybe? Damon? Yeah, I suck. I read a lot of blogs, but they tend to be topic specific, and I don't comment that much.

I'll have to give your food spot question some consideration.
