Offal? Where?

It may come down to that rudeboy. I just can't believe meat sections the size of wholefoods and central market have nothing. Thanks for the suggestions. Ill just have to plan ahead I guess.

Offal? Where?

I'm looking to make myself A nice ye olde English steak and kidney pie and I'm trying to track down some kidneys, ideally beef, but lamb will work. Where the hell will I find this in Austin. I've tried central market and wholefoods, the meat house in Westlake.

There are a few other butchers, but are any going to carry kidney or shall I just turn my hand to a steak pie? Any ideas?

New Olive-Oil only store in The Arboretum?

I went in there today. Nice friendly people and very reasonable prices. Virtually everything, excluding the truffle oils was under $20 a bottle and it's great fun to taste the different balsamics and olive oils

New to Round Rock

Another vote for Origami. Best Sushi in the Austin area. In terms of Sushi I'd put it above Uchi, but I prefer the overall menu at Uchi - move inventive and interesting.

Sichuan garden - great chinese, some interesting choices on that menu though.

Jonny T's BBQ

Main Street Grill, traditional menu, well-done

Friar Tucks pantry, good coffee shop English food. Getting yourself a sausage sandwich or bacon buttie for breakfast one day.

Z'Tejas, outpost of Austin restaurant, decent adequate food, tend to kick you out a little quickly though.

Breakfast, Java Cafe, near the Randalls or the 620 Cafe.

Zorbas good for Greek cafeteria style.

Sushi

If you're willing to make the trip then go to Origami up in Round Rock. In terms of Sushi alone I think it's better than Uchi - but I think the overall menu at Uchi and certainly the overall experience is a little better.
