Smoke gets in your eyes, and nose,throat and lungs

"Los Angeles banned charcoal"

BINGO!

We have way toooo many people who move here because they "love the Austin vibe" but now want to change it to suit them. Your music is too loud to live with ... your smoke is too much to deal with ... your bikes annoy the shit out me.... Well then feel free to visit BUT dont move here!!!

I am an ice fanatic. My idea of wealth is having ice of all different shapes available to me at my beck and call... tubes...shaves... the big hand chipped... crushed... love ice...it like having the right finishing for your drink...

Poured my heart into this food+tech startup (Oakenspoon) to connect Austin Personal Chefs with customers - Would love your feedback and criticism!

so are you trying to be an "agent" for chefs?

Too Beautiful To Eat

I think you fail to recongnize that by nature a chef knows that his art is ephemeral that to truly appreciate it it must evolve into the next phase which is consumption...

However, I believe as we become more intellectually stimulated by technology all around us we have become aware of eating with all of senses in ways that generations before may not have.

what happened to Matts

have some out of towners from up north and they wanted to go to Matts El rancho due to one of the sons girlfriends was from the area and had told them it was a must.... I was so embarrassed... the food was horrid-my dads tacos did not have any of the onions or peppers or cheese on them- My moms brisket tacos were actually literately unable to be chewed- the service equivalent to a fast food pick up window our guest seemed ok with what they ordered so i didnt want to make a scene and complain because i figured there was some reason my dad wasnt... I think it was because the other family was "hosting" annnnnnnnny way it was not the Matts I remember so fondly as being yummmy and wonderful.

"regionally special/quirky." it is unique to austin and has been highlighted on several Best eats shows..sooooooooo sometimes the "been there" factor counts... Cafe Beignet on Royal has better beignets but you can bet a visitor to New Orleans is going to want to go to Cafe Du Monde

of course Mrs Ps Electric Cock is good too...

And the very Unique experience of Marias Taco Express on Sunday morning

ok.. how about I find it neither creative or charming to spend 6.00 on a sliced apple placed on dish. Nor is a tough skirt steak thrown on a plate with five bland potatoes deemed fantastic and ground breaking to me. There are several others who feel the emperor has no clothes,, as for my example of a tv show I suppose I could have pulled out a more lofty example... however, if you read here regularly you will find my opinion is rather well respected.
