the one where we eat, well, everything

to say the food in austin is good is something of an understatement. to say we spent our whole vacation eating is something of an overstatement. but not by much.

it all started with brunch at magnolia cafe on south congress.

then there was pizza at home slice later that night.

and the best.barbecue.ever at the salt lick ind driftwood. (true texas hill country.) there was just a big pit in the main part of the restaurant. and on the pit was just a bunch of meat. and that meat was delicious.

the salt lick is a BYOB establishment, and the wait averages a couple of hours (we only waited for 45 minutes, which seems to be some kind of record) so people just bring huge coolers of ice and booze and make a night of it. which is probably pretty fun, if you're into that sort of thing.

and of course, there were the must-have breakfast tacos from local favorite, torchy's.

not pictured:

milkshakes from dirty martin's, late night and truly enormous gourmet donut from gordoughs (in a trailer!), big as yo' face burrito from the local mexican restaurant and delicious burgers from hopdoddy's.

and now if you'll excuse me, i think i'll go do about 1,000 sit-ups.
