Top 5 Food Cities: 2. Austin

So, here’s my Keep Austin Weird story, bro. I was at this heavy metal horror movie convention, and I walked across the street to this funky coffee shop that also serves booze and has a real-deal BBQ food truck in its backyard. I was wearing an Iron Maiden t-shirt and they were playing Iron Maiden on the stereo, which was totally awesome. The bartenderista tells me they’ve been playing Maiden all day, and Number of the Beast is up next. I’m like “Dude, that’s my favourite album!” and he gives me a free beer. I totally wanted to move to Austin the next day.

Man, this place has everything; breakfast tacos, fried chicken ‘n waffles, legit BBQ, real-deal Mexican… Even the food at the airport doesn’t suck!

They call these breakfast migas, which is Texican for scrambled eggs and fried tortillas.

You can get breakfast tacos pretty much anywhere in Austin, and they’re super-cheap, too!

If you don’t eat so much for brunch that you don’t have room for dinner, you’re doing it wrong, dude…

Bro, this green chili sauce is even better than Guy Fieri’s! I would so put it on a flip-flop!
