Cabrito? La Michuacan...and more

i like the cabrito tacos on the weekends at La Mich on S. Congress... does anyone have other menu recommendations? Good cabrito at La Borrego de Oro, just south of there at s. congress/benwhite...DELICIOUS corn torts. there, too!
Other suggestions?
...and everybody...thanks for your good writings and eatings!

Ginger-Infused Vodka

can't you chop the root in discs so that it's easier to get out, and doesn't leave any residue?

BBQ-THE REAL DEAL?

ugh, pokejo had a place up where mopac used to end. my mom lived there and she liked it...I was ALWAYS disappointed
...put me down for the Baby back ribs at ARTZ...for the last ten years or so...THE BEST...
I went to uncle billy's on Barton springs expecting to be disappointed...but the brisket was great...happy hour on Mondays...and the beer is great too

Chowhound Assignment:Your Top 5 Food Carts/Trailers

the torchy's truck on s. firsr is my favorite...and they have a place on south lamar in the little convenience store across from changuito's, a little north of the spoke... the pork with green chiles is superb!

Happy Hour Update for Fall in Austin

Hello All:
I just signed up. I have read all of the past posts regarding happy hours in austin...and the topic major thread that is a few years old...
Can we start over with current info?
South Austin is really all that's left of Austin...but I get up to university and downtown sometimes...
Yuppie chain restaurants downtown? I guess so, if they are really good.
Manuel's is great!

Surely there is something new?

My current pick is Uncle Billy's on Monday Nights...chopped beef and chix (even though I suspect that it is the weekend leftovers)...good beer selection, the beer sampler/flight is good for two.The staff is very cool! Marlon will treat you right!!! El es mi tocayo!
...and finally...off topic...but (imho) "tex-mex" is a (bad) regional mexican cuisine...just add a bunch of plastic yellow cheese and sour cream to bland food...and you pretty much have it...the chile relleno at matt's is great though! If I'm eatin' mexican: Borrego De Oro...or Torchy's...is that tex mex?
...also off topic...during the hatch chile season...the portobello hatch "burger" on the porch at whole foods is GREAT...and Lyndon gives good service!
