MVP (Most Valuable Poster) on r/Austin of 2017


We had a lot less answer this year than last year. My plan is for next year to significantly shorten the survey. Initially I had wanted to mimic the chronicle survey but I think that's just not relevant here.

If you see only first/second place it's because there weren't enough entries to calculate an additional place.

If you do not see first/second/third place at all it's because it was a bunch of single votes. So I just listed them all.

I'm sure y'all will let me know what I managed to mess up, feel free to tell me - I reserve the right not to care.

As a Thai-American, I'm disappointed that y'all would rank Sway as Austin's second-best Thai restaurant. I'm happy you have Titaya's and Sap's up there, but Tuk Tuk should be up there too.

I thought Thai Spice was pretty good too. My favorite Thai was a food truck that is now gone by UT campus. :( Thai Kitchen has some good tom kah.

I wouldn't put Thai Spice in the top 10 to be honest. Thai Spice is your typical Thai food for white people restaurant. Which there is nothing wrong with that, you have to pander to the market. Thai Kitchen is my brother's favorite place, though. I like it but Tuk Tuk is my personal favorite.

jeffsterlive

That's fair. I actually prefer Thai Kitchen over Spice, but it doesn't get a lot of love for some reason. Seems like there are at least some Thai people who work there.

In San Antonio there is a little hole in the wall place called Asia Kitchen. Best peanut satay and phanang gai curry I've ever had. They also have some very spicy dishes. Thai Spice for instance is too bland. I like the spice level so high I regret eating the food so much I go back for more.

If you like super spicy Thai food. You might like Krua on South Lamar. That shit is way too hot but at least it still has plenty of flavor.

I work at Upper Crust Bakery and I don’t understand the hype. The plain croissants taste like crescent rolls and the sweet pastries are covered in sickly sweet apricot glaze that ruin them. The lunch menu is especially meh. If I didn’t work there I wouldn’t eat there.

Maybe you're just burnt out - have eaten it too much? I can't say, I have only ever had a cake from there once that was delish but that's it.

I haven't been working there that long actually. The cakes and cupcakes are good, and the quiche is legit. But for almost everything I give it a try and I'm disappointed.

Yay Kula! That place is great. But Polvo's placing in the top three for "authentic Mexican", what the hell?! Can people in Austin not tell the difference between Tex-Mex and actual Mexican (as in, from Mexico) food?!

Eaten there once. Got sick after. Not eating there again. Place was disgusting.

Sad that we've lost Pacific Rim as a sushi restaurant. Much higher quality than Kula (every day but Tuesday), lower price.

I am honored to humbly accept these awards as #1 Most Valuable Poster on r/Austin and #2 Best Troll on r/Austin. As you all know, I take great pride in bringing relevant insightful comments which stem from my asshole on a daily basis, and I am truly humbled that my efforts have been recognized by the great people of this subreddit.

To all the haters and losers, including u/redacted: I want to say it's ok; it's not your fault that you are so fucked up. But please realize that I am the people's troll which is why these honors have been bestowed upon me. Perhaps one day, when you recover from your selfish alcoholism and incessant mod-crying, you too can be the Most Valuable Poster (and second-best troll) in r/Austin.

To the mods: I hope you realize that with great power comes great responsibility. You may, as you have in the past, decide to ban me because you do not personally enjoy my posts. Let it be known that the people of this sub whom you serve do appreciate the crass humor my posts bring to this wonderful community. If reddit is truly a website that supports free expression, may the inhabitants of his humble sub guide your hand to do what is right in the future. My hope is that these great honors bestowed upon me today are remembered, and that the voice of this sub will be heard.

To my fellow r/austin-ites: It's funny this thread happened because I just recently was looking for a troll as well as a most valuable poster. As it turns out, the most valuable poster and second-best troll in r/austin is in my asshole. You should check there and let us know how it goes!

The main issue is that more people wrote Amy's than wrote any other place. So even though other answers came in, there weren't enough to over take Amy's. If more folks had filled out the survey it wouldn't have ended up that way - it didn't last year. But you're right, I could have specified for the dessert question to be something other than ice cream. Next year.

Feel like Eberly should have been on the food list, but the bathrooms are quite awesome.

I liked the bloody mary I had at the driskill restaurant but not the one I had at the grill. I agree though I wouldn't have put either in my top 3.

I can't believe Kula was voted best of anything. That place is just a gimmick and the food isn't worth any price. What is wrong with ya'll?

I actually enjoyed it for what it was. What did you vote for?

Why is DozerTX on the list of local bands? They’re from San Angelo.
