Best Ice Cream in Austin

It is that time of year in Austin when the promise of the temperature breaking below triple digits is just around the corner. Until then, you need to actively seek some form of icy goodness to keep you cool. Lick grants serious ice cream aficionados (aka toddlers) and foodies alike an amazing array of flavors to choose from. Trust me, no matter how strange the flavor sounds, you are in for a delectable treat.

Portions are just right
Lick serves up their ice cream in gelato sized (earth friendly) cups. Not being a huge dessert eaters – we usually get a couple of scoops to share among 2 people and it’s just right.

5 New Restaurants in Austin, Texas – A Pictorial Roundup (May 25th, 2012)

It’s a great time to live in Austin for foodies. It seems that every few days, a new restaurant is opening up somewhere in the city.  A couple of years ago it was easy to know about all of the restaurant openings around town, but now it’s almost impossible to keep up.

Whether at a new sit down restaurant or trailer or food truck, Austinites have more food options than ever.

Austin Guide to Korean Food – Korean Restaurants in Austin

Updated on Oct 22nd 2013 to include new places (Rockin Rice, Hanabi, Ichiban) and closures (Shilla).

For a city of its size, Austin is an unlikely destination for Korean food. However, when you consider that Samsung, the largest Korean company and one of the leading electronics manufacturers in the world, has a huge factory here that’s staffed by many Korean nationals, it comes as no surprise that there are an abundance of Korean businesses in Austin.

Korean food in Austin is located mostly in the central part of town on Lamar Blvd, although some markets and restaurants are located up north closer to Samsung (which is located on East Parmer Lane near I-35). There are a few Korean fusion restaurants and mobile food trucks downtown, but for the really authentic stuff you have to look north of 51st Street.
