10 Iconic Foods Every Austinite Should Try At Least Once
We all know that Austinites love to eat. As one of the largest growing cities for foodies, it’s no surprise that Bat City is full of creative culinary concoctions. From Tex-Mex dishes to southern favorites, these ten iconic Austin foods will have your mouth watering.
1. Breakfast Tacos
When you wrap a tortilla around some scrambled eggs, some refried beans, and home cooked potatoes, you get an Austin breakfast staple. Breakfast tacos are, hands down, the best way to start your morning.
Other southern cities boast of their pulled pork and beef ribs, but in Austin brisket is king. Slow-cooked and melt-in-your-mouth, Austin brisket will send you to barbecue heaven.
3. Chicken-Fried Steak
Head over to Hill's Cafe for some of the best chicken-fried steak you've ever had.
Creamy, spicy, and addictive, queso is a standard part of any Austinite's diet.
5. Mexican Vanilla Ice Cream
Nobody makes Mexican vanilla ice cream quite like Amy's.
6. Kimchi French Fries
Kimchi, a Korean specialty made of fermented veggies, may not sound like typical Austin fare. Throw it on top of some french fries and add some soy-glazed chicken to the mix and your tastebuds will be dancing for joy. Chi'lantro makes the best kimchi fries in the city.
7. Veggie Burgers
Yes, Austinites love their steaks and barbecue, but we're also incredibly health conscious. We find ways to turn a typically boring food, such as a veggie burger, into a delightful culinary adventure. The best veggie burgers come from Mother's Cafe and Bouldin Creek Cafe.
Scrambled eggs, roasted peppers, and tortilla strips make for a delicious meal. Astatines crave migas, especially from Cisco's.
After eating a large plate of migas, nothing soothes your stomach like a fresh fruit smoothie. Juiceland crafts unique blended beverages that you'll crave every day.
10. Fried Avocados
