lynn in love with austin: the smorgasbord

Dude. Can we talk about the food in Austin? Seriously, best stuff ever! After I got some excellent recs from my pals on facebook, I was excited to know that almost all the best places were in South Congress!

Here are the highlights!
Vespaio - This was our one fancy meal of the weekend. Yummy Italian food! The atmosphere was cozy and the food was so yum!
We had the tuna tar tare, the freshly made mozzarella and a fantastic pizza with prosciutto, truffle oil and two sunny side up eggs!

- oh my gosh. So apparently trailer food is all the rage in Austin right now. Austin digs the trailer and we are totally in love with them. Fliphappy is a little crepe trailer and was so incredibly good! It was a little delicious meal wrapped up in a doughy goodness. We had chicken and mushroom and a nutella banana strawberry one day, and came back the next for a grilled chicken gouda and a spinich feta. All were amazing!

I apparently am very flip happy :)

Torchy's Taco - also out of a trailer. Little Gourmet tacos - Had the Baja shrimp and fried avocado. My tummy was very happy!

Okay and don't forget dessert! We cupcaked ourselves out!

Sugar Mama's Bakeshop - a cute old fashioned bakery with great little cupcakes! We had the Southern Belle, Strawberry Love, and the Hemingway. My favorite was the Hemingway which was vanilla with lemon curd and a little biscotti!

Hey Cupcake! - I probably loved the trailer more than the actual cupcake which which a little generic. But look how cute their trailer is!

I don't think I will ever recover from all the yumminess!!


  1. I [heart] South Congress (one of my favorite vintage stores is off there!) I love hey cupcake!

  2. Man, I need to go to Austin some time soon. I haven't even heard of those places. I like how you guys ate out of trailers all weekend. =P hehe Very cute.

  3. Is fliphappy run by two girls? If so, I saw them on an episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay. They won.

  4. These look DELICIOUS and ADORABLE!!
