When I was in Austin last month my dude Papi Babylon told me to hit up Burger Tex by the UT campus for a Korean bulgogi burger. Dude was on point with the other recommendations so we stopped by for a burger and happened to make history.
I was in Austin, TX last week for some work training and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to taste a little bit of Texas BBQ. I’ve been there once before a few years back and tried some really mediocre chili from the Texas Chili Parlor (beans wtf) but I didn’t get to try any BBQ. So this time I decided to do it up right by researching the area and taking recommendations from friends familiar with the scene.

I fucking love tacos. I’ve eaten them my entire life, being mexican kind of has something to do with it but man they are such a staple that I can’t imagine a life without them. Last night after happy hour I rolled through San Jose Taqueria, the underdogs of 24th and mission. Everyone loves Farolito, clueless people rave about La Taqueria (it’s the white friendly choice!) but I’ve been fucking with the pork selection at San Jose for a minute. (more…)
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the double Jucy Lucy from Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis:
Fucking A. If you live in St. Louis and don’t suck then you’ve probably been to Mammer Jammer. Right around the corner from Natural Bridge and Kingshighway, this spot has been killin’ the St. Louis cheese steak game for years. (more…)
Oak Park Mall in suburban Kansas City was sort of blessed with the only Kornet Pizza franchise in America. We went to the food court on assignment for my dude Grocery. I say this because I hate this mall with a passion. The food court is pretty much the same since I was there a couple of years ago. They have a Panda Express, some sort of cheese steak and potato stand, a Subway (coming soon!), and a Sonic. All of these places were busy with hungry Friday afternoon shoppers, while I was the only person within at least twenty feet of the Kornet counter. All the details and pictures after the jump.
