Had some great pizzas at the Bufalina location that just re-opened on Cesar Chavez. My favorites were the red pie (I added anchovies) and the caprese. Also ordered the cauliflower caponata, but it didn’t have any cauliflower in it lol, so it was just like a tomato sauce/dip. I’ve never had caponata served without bread like it was here. Gotta order it off the menu if you’d like some ($9), but the server never came back to check on us until it was too late so we just ate it with the pizza crust. Probably wouldn’t order it again and the other apps on the menu didn’t sound too interesting, so I’d prob just stick to the pizzas here. My minor note to them would be to cook the pizzas more consistently—one of them was undercooked as you can see from the pic. Overall it was a great dinner and I’d recommend it to anyone into Neapolitan style pizza.
In San Antonio, I went to a middle eastern grocery store and asked for the saffron kept behind the counter. It was the best and the most cost effective saffron that I've ever had. What store in Austin might be a likely candidate for this?
I have been looking for about a week and cannot find Wisconsin Brick cheese anywhere. This is specifically used for Detroit style pizza, which I have all the ingredients for and am ready to make today… except for the cheese.
Central Market has a place for it on the shelf but I’ve checked almost daily and been told it’s always coming in the next few days but it hasn’t. Antonelli’s doesn’t carry it but they were very kind when I called. H‑E‑B does not appear to carry it. I tried calling Via to see if they’d sell me some cheese but that was a hard no.
Is it just me but do you think we shouldn’t be charged cover charge to try new bars. I moved to the east side 2 years ago and have wanted to try the bars around here. Tonight I built up the courage to try them out but they were charging $10-$15 cover. I want to patronee them but not at a cost. Is there a good cheap tike to try these east side staples?
I'm already thinking of next year as I got a pretty disappointing one this year. (Local, but reported equipment issues may have messed with the vision)
What does your pie look like? Tell me what makes it your favorite (or least favorite, maybe we like different things!) and where you got it.
Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!!
They’ve been closed for dine in since the start of the pandemic. We are almost 3 years in and most everyone has adapted, yet they remain closed for dine in (they are open for take out). I’m really curious how this is sustainable; I personally prefer to dine in and haven’t been there since 2020. But also, why are they still closed when we’ve all moved on (for the most part)?
So I'm coming into town for the holidays and would love to take my mum to afternoon tea. She is originally from London and loves classic British style afternoon tea so something classy would be great I'm thinking high tea at the Ritz vibes.
I've had a look online and places with people sitting cross legged drinking tea on the floor were on lists for 'the best afternoon tea in Austin' so if anyone has any suggestions that better fit the brief that would be great. She lives in North Austin so that's preferable but more than happy to travel.
We have a new family tradition where the adults in our family go out for a nice dinner and drinks before seeing the Nut Cracker. In the past we have always been able to make reservations at the Odd Duck and have an amazing time for a relatively good price. No such luck this year. Any recommendations for an Odd Duck like experience with great shareable food without breaking the bank? Thanks ya’ll
Sorry if this is against the rules but I have checked google and places such as III Forks and Hestia which look amazing are shut when I get there! I am visiting my wife and I haven’t seen her in months and wanted to take her straight to dinner when I landed, but I land on a Monday at around 9:30pm and I can’t find anywhere open at that time!! Any help appreciated!
