eating in austin

this past saturday, we went to austin to celebrate mike's 30th birthday and as usual we really enjoyed the food in austin. for lunch we went to one of our favorite places to eat, zax's pints and plates. we shared a blue cheeseburger and a salad and it was wonderful as usual. for dinner, mike wanted sushi, so we went to maiko sushi lounge and it was amazing. we started off with their hot rock, which is a hot rock that you cook beef on, it was an interesting experience and very tasty. we also had their calamari which has to be the best calamari that I have ever had. the group then shared a sampling of sushi and I had their chicken teriyaki (since I don't eat sushi). the food was all very good and unfortunately, we were too stuffed for dessert, but it looked really good on the menu.

chuys in waco

we went to chuys today for lunch and I have to say that I continue to be impressed with our chuys here in waco!  I had the strawberry margarita to start off with and as usual, it was amazing, I think the best margarita in waco.  we tried the creamy jalapeno dip with the chips and I was really good, I will definitely be asking for that again next time I go there. I then had fajita which were just as great as I remember.  we finished off with tres leches cake which is the still the second best that I have ever had (mine is better!).
