desperate for a decent baguette in Austin

Baguette House is wonderful, I second Lisa. Their baguettes are chewy on the inside and slight crunchy on the outside. Pick up one of their sandwiches while your there, they range from $2.75 to $3.50. The grilled pork sandwich is amazing, #6 on the menu.

Must Eats in Cedar Park...

I have been to Dig Pub a few times and love the microbrewery beers they have, but have not ordered food yet. Next time I will be prepared, thanks.

Dulce's The Art of Mexican Cuisine... Feedback

Yes I can help you out! I have been once and it was a few weeks after opening.

Dulce's is an upper class Mexican Cuisine, not to be confused with the likes of Z'Tejas. The environment is very cold. You can see they spent their money to impress by the art deco style silverware and disturbing statues of triangle-headed beings.

They serve their home made chips with a red salsa, green salsa and refried beans. Some of the chips puffed out in the oil and make a tortilla fried balloon. The others did not puff out and are thick and hard. None of the chips are enjoyable to eat and the salsas are not incredible by any means. Your regular local hole in the wall mexican restaurant has better salsa.

The plates start out around $15, no lunch specials that I could find. I ordered the ancho chile enchiladas for $16 I believe. The plate came out beautiful, enchiladas gathered around a fancy little salad served with beans and rice. The enchiladas would of been just okay if the ancho chile sauce was not present. The sauce was extremely bitter to the taste, I scraped all of it off to finish my $16 plate. I will eat anything and am not picky by any means, so when I say this was not edible I mean it.

The manager strolled by my table because the place was empty. He asked how the food was. I told him about the bitter ancho sauce and he said he would go taste it. I don't know why he wouldn't take my word for it. So, I waited for him to come back, when 5 minutes rolled around I paid and left.

When I'm hungry for mexican food I think of real food with a bit of grease and soul. Dulce's however is nowhere near what you would call mexican food, very disappointed to say the least and way over priced. Stay clear Austin.

Thank a lot everyone, keep the posts going!

MyySharona: I live right by Berry Cool and always wondered about, will visit next chance.

And everyone I have heard about Jardin Corona and can't wait to go.

Must Eats in Cedar Park...

I recently moved to the Austin area, residing in Cedar Park and love great food. I would love to hear any suggestion for any type of food. I do however love mexican breakfast and haven't found a place yet that can make proper migas.

What are the MUST EAT places in this area. Please no "the Whataburger on Cypress is the best".

Thanks for the help!

Thai Bowl- As good as I think?

I have not eaten at Thai Bowl yet, but I do know who the owner is. He ran a chinese cafe at the HEB in my hometown, Victoria, TX.

Even though the restaurant was a typical chinese food bar you would expect to find in a HEB, it was fabulous for what it was. The food was fresh and always consistent. As soon as the chef left so did the customers.

I ran into him a few weeks ago and found out he opened Thai Bowl but still have not been. I have eaten this man's food plenty of times before and can't see why Thai Bowl would be anything less than perfect.

Looking forward to trying.
