Keepin' it weird
“Keep Austin weird,” they always say. However, the amazing culture and cuisine in the Southern city is anything but weird. It is delicious, savory, modern, unique, and, ok, you know what, maybe a little weird. It is definitely not a bad thing to be weird. It just means that you can’t get these meals anywhere else. And trust us, you are going to be wanting to eat these meals on repeat. Some of the best food here in Austin has its routes in other cultures. For some delicious Korean food, such as bulgogi rice or hot pots, try out Seoulju Korean Kitchen and Bar. For some Middle Eastern cuisine such as kebabs and shawarma bowls, stop by Usta Kababgy. Julie's Noodles may also interest you for some chinese-style thick, chewy noodles at this restaurant that was once a food truck. If you are craving some southern comfort like you were hoping to stumble upon in Texas, head to Bird Bird Biscuit for a thick biscuit filled with crispy fried chicken. A few more must-try spots include Otherside Deli, JewBoy Burgers, Foreign & Domestic, and Quality Seafood Market. Just remember while in Austin, stay weird.
