Breweries in Austin to Kick Off Fall

We know the crisp coolness of fall is here (well maybe). A cool drink always sounds good, and if you’re in Austin, you want to keep it local. One of the most frequent questions we get is “what are the best breweries near me?” -here are our favorite Austin breweries to catch a sip at.

The Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co.

Located along South Lamar and West Oltorf St., you’ll find The Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co. Enjoy signature and seasonal beer, wine, cider and food. You can also catch a live music show by going online and checking out the events. Plus, through their “Hell Yes Project,” a portion of yearly profits are donated to causes and volunteers organize to help at places like the Central Texas Food Bank and Barton Springs Pool.

St. Elmo Brewing Company

Not too far from the St. Edwards University campus, you’ll find another Austin favorite. St. Elmo Brewing Company “loves all styles of beer and people,” and if drinking at a public place isn’t your thing, then you’re in luck. Drinks can be purchased to-go! But of course, you can always sit, sip and relax at St. Elmo’s garden. An added bonus: you can also find their beer at several local restaurants and businesses as well!

Pinthouse Pizza

Across I-35 and also nearby St. Elmo, you’ll come see Pinthouse Pizza. Pinthouse Pizza offers featured beer and beer to-go, along with delivery, curbside and dine-in. With a Burnet, South Lamar and Round Rock location, finding a Pinthouse Pizza in the area is no problem. Their “food philosophy” stems from making everything from scratch. Therefore, you can also enjoy a meal made from scratch at Pinthouse, including salads, pizzas and desserts.

Jester King Brewery

No, it isn’t near the University of Texas at Austin campus. Jester King Brewery is actually in the deeper west side of Austin, but don’t let the drive discourage you. Hill Country views and farmhouse tours are always worth the trip. You can make a reservation for your visit on their website, and not only is this a brewery and farmhouse, but Jester King offers several lodging accommodations in case you want to prolong your stay in the Texas hill country.

Zilker Brewing Company and Taproom

Zilker Brewing Company and Taproom is location on Austin’s beloved East Sixth St, so not only is this a prime location for your night out, but you can also order online and to-go. Offering mainstays and seasonals, you’re bound to find a brew you’ll enjoy. Zilker Brewing Company’s products can also be found at plenty of other shops and restaurants all throughout the city.

Il Brutto: A Classic Night Out

Il Brutto sits on the corner of Comal and E Sixth, rounding out the trendy neighborhood and offering some of the best authentic Italian in Austin. Diners are afforded a choice between breezy wood-paneled seating outside or cushy, relaxed tables inside. Upbeat music surreptitiously keeps the mood up throughout the night as each course of finessed Italian fare graces the table. 

The Drinks

Hands down the best part of the night was trying my new favorite drink, the Questo Espresso Martini. With all the punch of espresso and sophisticated sass of quality European liquor, the Questo is the perfect way to prep for an evening of energy and excitement at Il Brutto. Despite the strength of flavor brought by the coffee and two liquors, the martini is smooth and decadent from the first sip to the last.

Questo Espresso Martini

For an equally bracing but less dramatic drink, the Uccello Rosa is a prime choice. Slightly herbal, with sneakily tropical notes of pineapple, the accessible and friendly Uccello Rosa is sure to please even pickier drinkers. 

The Appetizer

Trio Tasting

Keeping the trend of catering to all tastes, the Trio Tasting features three distinct spreads alongside Il Brutto’s pizza bread: a classic basil pesto, a strong blend of four cheeses, and a traditional ‘nduja pork mousse. The pizza bread is perfectly chewy and fluffy, and a delight to eat by itself. The basil pesto and ‘nduja are creamy and bold, with the ‘nduja providing some welcomed spice. Despite its apparent thinness, the four cheese dip clings to the bread well and has a beautifully complex, robust flavor that leaves you dipping over and over until it’s gone.

The Entrees

Cacio e Pepe

The Cacio e Pepe, or cheese and pepper pasta, is strikingly simple yet remarkably delicious due to Il Brutto’s precise execution. The pasta is exactly al dente and slightly thicker than spaghetti noodles. The sauce has the same complexity as the four-cheese dip from the Trio Tasting. The pepper adds that little kick needed to make it unforgettable.

Lamb Scottadito

The previous dishes are simple fare executed perfectly. The Lamb Scottadito, in contrast, is an intricate marriage of texture and flavor. Succulent lamb rib chops draw the eye as they lay in a bed of tangy yogurt, fresh dill, juicy fried artichokes, and excitingly crispy kataifi noodles.

This entree truly shines when all elements are eaten together. The yogurt and artichokes temper the natural gaminess of the lamb, while the dill brightens the bite and the kataifi allows for a satisfyingly crunch.

The Desserts

Of course, the most important part of a meal is dessert. At Il Brutto, it did not disappoint. They makes their gelato in-house, making the final product quite impressive. The difficult-to-achieve creaminess is a brilliant testament to the skill of the chefs and shouldn’t be missed.

Tiramisu

And the tiramisu? Now that is on another level. Like the Questo, Il Brutto’s tiramisu shot up into my favorites list at first contact. I may have ascended to a higher plane of existence. In short, the tiramisu is divine. It’s not a cake favored like tiramisu, which is something a lot of restaurants do to save themselves trouble. This is pure tiramisu. It’s pillowy soft, airy, and melt-in-the mouth, yet the coffee grounds it just long enough to grant you the best experience of your life. Chocolate cinnamon streusel gently dusts the top of the dessert for an innovative touch that compliments instead of overwhelms the overall taste. 

FM Kitchen and Bar in Houston: Welcome to Montrose!

FM Kitchen and Bar is the perfect place to hang with family and friends for some quality happy hour drinks and food. The neighborhood restaurant and bar recently opened its second location on the corner of Montrose Boulevard and Westheimer Road. Whether you’re going out for a night in the town or to get a quick bite to eat, FM can accommodate any special occasion.

Customers can easily find themselves comfortable here, as the inside of this location is quite cozy yet lively at the same time. Guests are welcome to experience the lovely outdoor patio area, which I recommend for daytime brunch outings. The outdoor space is also doggy-friendly, which is perfect for customers with furry friends! 

The Drinks

FM offers a wide variety of cocktails on their menu; here are some that I recommend.  “The Frose,” a sweet frozen cocktail with Deep Eddy Ruby Red, rosé, raspberry, strawberry, and orange. This combination of flavors blends well together for a cocktail with a refreshing sweet taste.

The “FM Ranch Water” is also my favorite! The Hibiscus adds an exciting pink detail to this cocktail which makes it enjoyable to drink! Mixed with tequila, Topo Chico, and lime, this specialty cocktail is a must-try when visiting FM for the first time. 

The Food

Now let’s talk about the food menu. The menu selection offers choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Have a craving for some comfort food? Try the “FM Burger,” with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and “shhh sauce” on a potato bun. Don’t forget the tater tots, a crowd favorite that I noticed at the grand opening!

In addition to this, the menu has options for customers who want something healthier, like the “Superfood grain bowl,” with kale, quinoa, avocado, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, pumpkin & chia seeds, and miso-ginger vinaigrette.

There’s something for everyone. Plant-based? Get the impossible burger in a lettuce wrap. FM Bar and Kitchen offers various crowd favorites, with the primary goal of having a great time!

Teal House Coffee and Bakery

When I walked into Teal House Coffee and Bakery, I didn’t know anything about it but what I’d heard: everything was fantastic, but I HAD to try the cinnamon rolls. As a coffee connoisseur and lover of baked goods (super quirky, right?) I could not have been more psyched to see if this home-run bakery turned SoCo sensation lived up to the hype. Spoiler: it did. 

The Story

In 2016, the Phillips family noticed a neighbor’s success in selling paella out of her home. In their very own teal house, the Phillips had ample baking skills and five kids dying to go to Disney World, so they embarked upon an entrepreneurial undertaking of their own. What began as selling cinnamon rolls (we’ll get to those later) and apple pies out of their home expanded to become a full menu and so many devotees that they require two locations. And, if you didn’t connect the dots, the Teal House name pays homage to where it all began. 

The Atmosphere

For my first time trying Teal House, I got to go to their new SoCo storefront. The first thing that struck me when I walked in was that teal-tiled counter. Against the white walls, light wood, and minimalist look of the rest of the coffee shop, those tiles seriously pop, and all together it creates a bright, cheery feel. I also loved that, through a doorless opening on the far wall, you can see some of the work going on in the kitchen. With the variety offered in their menu and customers always ready for more, I doubt they stop baking from open until close. Don’t let the clean, minimalist aesthetic of this place fool you; their treats are elaborate and teeming with flavor–and if you attack them with the vigor I did (nearly unavoidable), you’ll be needing some napkins. 

The Coffee

Okay, so some might say I cheated by ordering an iced chai, which isn’t technically a coffee. But I’m a certified chai addict, so I couldn’t leave without trying theirs–and it’s my professional opinion that this is the best I’ve found in Austin thus far. Perfectly sweet, light, and cinnamon-y, it was refreshing with just the right amount of spice to get me thinking about autumn. Luckily for me, I was able to bring a friend who had the presence of mind to ask to try their signature drink. It’s called the Princess Diana, and it did not disappoint. I’m nineteen years old, okay? I’ve tried plenty of coffees in my time. And NEVER IN MY LIFE have my tastebuds been so pleasantly confused. The Princess Diana involves both lavender and coffee and almost seemed to change from one sip to the next as my brain tried to process the presence of herbal notes in something that wasn’t tea. What it was, definitively, was fantastic. 

The Food

Now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: Teal House’s famous Cinnamon Roll. Some might say that being consistently rated the best cinnamon roll in Austin is a lot of pressure to put on a pastry; those people clearly haven’t tried it. There’s the exterior layer, just crispy enough to keep it all from falling apart, the dense, chewy, and insanely cinnamon-y middle, and just when you think it can’t get any better, the soft core practically melts in your mouth. But even with all of that going for it, I still think the pièce de résistance is the icing. I was definitely caught off guard by the saltiness (balances the whole thing out perfectly, by the way), and though I have a few guesses at some ingredients, no one would divulge the secret recipe.

Next was the Croissant Breakfast Sammy with egg and avocado. The croissant itself was perfectly flaky (Also, look at it! So gorgeous), and the sandwich came with the surprising kick of pepper embedded in the egg. Finally, I got to try the Andy. Named for owner Lance Phillips’ wife, Andrea, this massive croissant/cinnamon roll fusion is flaky and soft with a similar icing to the cinnamon roll and caramelized cinnamon sprinkled on top. It’s tangy, sweet, and buttery all ROLLED (get it?) up into one, and evoked the feeling of riding a flavor rollercoaster. 

Glass Animals Rock a Sold Out White Oak Music Hall

Live music is something that has been missing from our lives for far too long. As a society we are still negotiating with how to reintroduce live music gatherings and we may have found the answer. This past week we got to hear some synth-drenched pop music from Glass Animals at White Oak Music Hall in Houston, Texas. All attendees of the sold-out concert were required to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test. Additionally the concert was held on the outdoor Lawn space, decreasing risk of viral transmission.

The Venue

White Oak Music Hall (“WOMH”) is a five-acre, three-stage indoor/outdoor live music complex, located just north of downtown Houston. The venue originally opened in 2016 and has hosted diverse acts from up and coming local talent to grammy winning international tours. This was our first time catching a show at the venue and we LOVED it. There is an upstairs room that fits 300, downstairs area for 1,000 fans and the outdoor stage welcomes some of the most legendary names in music for a performance to more than 3,000 fans. We got to see Glass Animals on the outdoor stage in what felt like a festival atmosphere.

The Opening Act

It was the perfect late summer evening with a a cooler-than-normal late summer backdrop as the youthful and lively crowd trickled in for opener Binki.

Baraka Ongeri, better known by his stage name Binki, has seen a brisk rise with millions of streams from the momentum of TikTok and Spotify playlists. The Pennsylvanian musician is someone whose music could only exist in a world where a DIY approach is possible – his sound is pop, indie, dance, hip-hop, and R&B. He charmed the crowed with Heybb! and even threw in some magic tricks into his set.

Glass Animals

And then it was time. Glass Animals walked onto the stage to an atmosphere that felt like ACL. Their set was colorful, lit with neon lights, and even had a basketball hoop draped with some Air Force Ones – all in theme with the cover of Dreamland.

Ground shaking 808s topped with wipsy vocals and driving synth lines rocked Houston. They opened the show with the “Dreamland” intro, quickly followed by “Life Itself,” and the dancing ensued. The colorful set added to the psychedelic feel of the show. The screen at the back of the set played everything from music videos to pac-man. All this, while Dave Bayley flew around the stage in his Houston shirt taking the audience to new places. What some may not know is that Dave grew up in College Station, Texas and stated during the show that his is the closest he’ll ever have to a home town show.

Their newest funky single ‘I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance)’ is proof that Glass Animals are better than ever. Bayley said of the single “I want people to switch their devices off, put this song on, close their eyes and have that release for a moment.” and thats what we did.

The band left the stage briefly and then came back for their encore. “Tokyo Drifting” dropped and for their finale, “Heat Waves” had us dancing and singling along as the lyrics flashed on the screen capping off a dreamy concert experience on a September night in beautiful Houston, Texas.

She’s Got It All: Fareground Food Hall in Downtown Austin Reopens

If you’re like me, the concept of a food hall – a standalone space with several restaurants to choose from – seems a little too close to a food court to be met without skepticism. However, as soon as I pulled up to Fareground, I realized this wasn’t the case at all. Fareground features a beautifully landscaped outdoor eating area below the trendy Ellis bar on the corner of Congress and E 2nd, alongside sleekly modern, wonderfully clean indoor seating. Apart from Ellis, all the restaurants, as well as some boutique goods, are located in the main One Eleven building. Currently, Fareground is home to DRINK, The Market, Henbit, Austin Rôtisserie, Little Wu, Taco Pegaso, and TLV. Upon Fareground’s reopening, only Ellis and Little Wu were still preparing for business. 

Drink

Front and center when entering Fareground, DRINK takes first impressions seriously. The specialty drinks are precise in representing Fareground’s unifying aesthetic of chic fun. The frozen Mango Punch, draft Hibiscus Margarita, and craft Watermelon Mezcal Margarita are refreshing enough to banish the Texas heat from your mind, yet all in different ways. The Mango Punch is lively with an energizing crunch from the ice. The Hibiscus and Watermelon Mezcal margaritas are more rejuvenating than energetic. The former providing a simple, crisp sip and the latter an intriguing, complex experience.

Farm Fare

Henbit’s farm-to-table approach means you can feel yourself get healthier as you eat. The Salmon Bowl is a delightful marriage of various strong flavors which somehow don’t impede each other. The Crispy Sweet Potatoes are to die for and much more satisfying than sweet potato fries are, which is quite a feat. Afterwards, you can reward yourself for a well-picked meal with a massive Monster Cookie that begs to be eaten all in one sitting.

Sandwiches

The Market and Austin Rôtisserie focus on perfectly executed classics. The Market’s Caprese panini and Austin Rôtisserie’s Poulet Roti Baguette are reminders that sometimes, simple is best. Both impressed through their gorgeously balanced flavors, with all elements carefully calculated to be just present enough to do their job without taking over the sandwich. Austin Rôtisserie also managed to make baguette bread friendly and enjoyable. The outside is toasty enough to crunch endearingly but not to attack the roof of your mouth. The inside remains fluffy and chewy.

Foreign Fare

Taco Pegaso and TLV embrace the street food so popular in Mexico and Israel. At Taco Pegaso, I enjoyed the vegetarian Champis burrito and the hearty Al Pastor taco on corn. The Champis’ summery flavor gets better with each bite, while the Al Pastor hits you straight away with the sharpness of pineapple and substance of achiote pork. Hilariously, both actually filled me up equally despite their difference in size. TLV’s Kofta Be-Pita had a similar vigor to the Al Pastor, as the red cabbage salad paves the way for generously seasoned, melt-in-the-mouth lamb and beef. And, despite being closed, Little Wu’s menu should be mentioned. I’ll be going back to try the cold sesame noodles and tricolor dumplings the first chance I get!

Overall, Fareground is exactly what Austin needs. Everything is delicious, though Austin Rôtisserie’s Poulet Roti Baguette and DRINK’s Mango Punch are the stars of an already star-studded show. The option to stay both indoors and outdoors when visiting makes it a perfect shelter from Texas’ notoriously changeable weather, and the variety of menus means nobody has to settle for less when eating out. The spacious, mixed seating layouts and inviting décor allow it to host quick drop-ins, dates, and hangouts alike, and offer great casual photography opportunities for you and yours. If you haven’t yet, give Fareground a go – you won’t be disappointed. 

The Wonders of Wayside Food Truck

Tucked behind the Back Lot Bar on Maiden Lane sits one of Austin’s best late-night places for quality grub. Wayside Food Truck is a gem of a spot, focusing on blowing minds with the ever so versatile waffle. Open until 2 AM most nights of the week, Wayside is slinging out dishes with flavors and textures that will leave you in awe. Chef and owner Ozzy B. was a local who would stop by the Back Lot and fell in love with the bar and its atmosphere.

Otherside Deli previously owned the truck right outside the Back Lot and they eventually moved to a storefront location, offering Ozzy the truck. Thinking of what could be both unique and delicious, Ozzy and his team came up with the idea of bringing quality waffles to the Austin food truck scene. The mindset behind Wayside is to provide killer late-night meals for a fair price. What Ozzy and the Wayside team have come up with is nothing short of a modern marvel. 

The Many Ways to Waffle

With a diverse menu oriented around waffles, Wayside offers some out-of-this-world bites in many different forms. As a diehard fan of the classic chicken and waffles, Ozzy put his spin on the dish which is as delicious and satisfying as any chicken and waffles that I have had. Everything starts with the waffle, which is perfectly balanced as a salty and sweet vessel for any dish.

The focus with the Wayside waffles is to not overpower the food with a super sweet waffle but to utilize it like a Hawaiian roll. Hawaiian rolls are quite sweet and are a great way to incorporate sweetness into a dish and Wayside does the same thing with their exquisite waffles. At Wayside, one does not need to choose between sweet and savory. The mouthwatering dishes that come out of this humble truck tease the taste buds with such complexity in each item. 

The BLT, a classic American sandwich, gets an innovative twist at Wayside as it is served on a waffle that has been topped with a thin skirt of cheese. Each facet of the sandwich comes together to form a bite like no other. The saltiness of the cheese and bacon are cut by the tomato, lettuce, and chipotle mayo, only to be rounded out by the sweet waffle holding it all together. The BLT is a precursor to the rest of the incredible food.

In addition to the BLT, I had the privilege of trying the Wayside Chicken and Waffle as well as the Loaded Potato Wedges. The Chicken and Waffle was the ideal late-night bite that could satisfy any palette in search of sweet, salty, crunchy, and soft deliciousness. Although the Chicken and Waffle were not as complex and unique as the other dishes I tried, it was simply phenomenal.

Last but not least was the Loaded Potato Wedges which are generously topped with chorizo, peppercorn bacon, jalapeño sauerkraut, grilled jalepeños, provolone cheese, and spicy mayo. These “fries” were a complex dish that came together harmoniously as the hot and crispy potato wedges served as the ideal base for the spicy and salty toppings. 

Each ingredient worked in unison and created a dish that will keep me coming back to Wayside. All in all, I had a wonderful experience at Wayside Food Truck and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great meal and atmosphere that won’t break your wallet. 

Museum of Ice Cream

I scream you scream, we all scream because the Museum of Ice Cream is finally in Austin, Texas! Are you ready to ride a life-size frosted animal cookie or swim in a pool of sprinkles?

During the experience, five different sweet treats are served, from ice cream to cotton candy. Each time visitors get to choose from a variety of flavors and also enjoy vegan options if they desire. 

Explore the history of ice cream, devour endless sweets, and wander through highly instagramable rooms all through a visit to the Museum of Ice Cream.

Tacodeli: Mexican Dinner Plates and Refreshing Cocktails

Tacodeli first opened its doors in 1999 but the Mexican chain began with the flavors of Mexico City. Founder, Roberto Espinosa grew up with rich cuisine native to Mexico City. It was these flavors and Austin culture that inspired Tacodeli’s menu.

Now for the first time, Tacodeli is offering brand new dinner plates, housemade cocktails and more. Their brand new menu includes new meals such as Mole de Pollo, Pastor Yucatan, Arrachera and Escalopas Especiales. 

Their new cocktails include a variety of margaritas served both frozen and on the rocks and a refreshing Paloma. The margaritas are lime flavored with the option to make it a swirl with the addition of agua fresca flavors like Sandia, Horchata and Basil Pina. We were invited to the Tacodeli dinner & cocktail preview a few weeks ago and had to share our favorites.

New Tacodeli menu, featuring two orders of Esquites (Mexican Street Corn)

New Flavors

The first preview that we got to taste was the Mole de Pollo, which is served over veggie white rice and black beans. Lightly sprinkled on top is some queso fresco which compliments the nutty flavor of the mole. For anyone unfamiliar with mole, this sauce is made with chocolate, peanuts, chicken, chili peppers and other seasonings. 

Mole de Pollo

This dish is perfect for anyone who wants a meal with healthy ingredients that are also light and full of flavor. The queso fresco, which is a brilliant topping for light meals is also featured on the Pastor Yucatan. 

The Pastor Yucatan is served over a banana leaf and topped with red onion escabeche and Mexican rice and black beans topped with queso fresco. The pastor pork is well seasoned, with the red onion escabeche adding a tangy flavor to the meat. The Mexican rice is savory and paired well with the black beans.

The Pastor Yucatan

The Arrachera is a mojo seasoned flank steak with Mexichurri and green onions. Mojo is a Cuban marinade that includes citrus flavors and went well with the refreshing flavor of the Mexichurri sauce on the steak. The Arrachera is served with Mexican rice and black beans. 

The Arrachera and Pastor Yucatan

The Drinks

Tacodeli also unveiled housemade cocktails – their options are lime margaritas served either frozen or on the rocks with options available to make it a swirl by adding aguas frescas and a refreshing Paloma. 

Both are served with a chili salt rim and a lime. The drinks are refreshing and delicious, perfect for having cocktails at the outdoor patio at the Crestview location. The new dinner menu is served at 4 p.m. daily.

Museum Of The Future Present – A Voyage of the Mind and Body

We recently checked out The Museum of The Future Present. The museum is at the Native Hostel on East 4th Street and is filled with installations focused on presenting music in all forms. The works that make up the exhibit are from a rotating group of artists whose art comes together to form this truly unique museum experience

The Art

Upon entering the Museum, one is immediately struck by the blending of visual and audial stimuli that each installation emits. Each piece of art within the museum is unique and captivates the viewer in unimaginable ways. Although one may not be able to define what they are experiencing, the art is simply something to behold and admire.

The diversity of the installations is awe-inspiring as they range from written messages to sculptures, optical illusions, and even entire rooms.

The sounds and visuals struck me from all around, I was taken aback by how interesting and creative each installation was. Each piece of art resonated with me differently as they took my mind to places beyond the museum. One of the installation is an entire living room and kitchen that is so colorful and musical that it it feel like a futuristic recording studio.

One thing that I noticed within multiple pieces was the connection between human beings and technology. A few of the installations seemed to touch on the relationship between people and devices such as this.

Visiting The Museum of The Future Present is an experience unlike any other. The way the sounds, colors, and visuals of the museum come together to create a transcendent experience is truly mind blowing. As a fan of inventive and modern art, I highly recommend visiting The Museum of The Future Present for a good time.
