@tsuke_edomae $$$

The best sushi omakase in Austin for a fair price. Every creation is amazing and chef Mike continues to improve his art.

Address: 4600 Mueller Blvd #1035, Austin, TX 78723

@interorestaurant $$

Corn bucatini

They are kinda underrated but I find the elevated Contemporary Italian food at Intero delicious. Their food is unique and on point. Be sure to try the pizza, focaccia, bucatini and truffles!

Address: 2612 E Cesar Chavez St Suite 105, Austin, TX 78702

@thedinerbar_austin - $$-$$$

Foie and Grits

Pretty much everything I ate here was really great! I really like their Day Boat Catch, Foie and Grits, and Hamachi Crudo. The Chess Pie was fabulous.

Address: 500 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78701

@thaikun_og - $$

Thai Kun has to be on here since I eat here pretty much once a week. The whole fish is the best in town and I love the heat from the Thai dishes!

Address: 11601 Rock Rose Ave, Austin, TX 78758

Bamboo House- $-$$

The best Peking duck you’ll find in Austin. The spicy crispy chicken and breaded lobster are also must eats.

Address: 7010 Easy Wind Dr Unit 100, Austin, TX 78752

Aged Porterhouse Steak

This is probably the only restaurant I frequent from MML. The aged steak here is incredible and I love the risotto and complimentary pop overs! Service is impeccable too.

Address: 1204 W Lynn St, Austin, TX 78703

@1618asianfusion - $$

They were voted the number 8 restaurant in the US 2021. Even though it’s fusion, every dish is good/great and it’s a fun place to eat! I love their fusion dishes.

Address: 1618 E Riverside Dr, Austin, TX 78741

the best bbq in Austin imo. Love the glazed peach tea pork belly and brisket taco!

RoadRunner, Texas hybrid, and Bumble Bee roll.

My childhood favorite Japanese spot with the best rolls, teriyaki, karagge, and more.

Address: 2905 San Gabriel St Suite 200, Austin, TX 78705

I prefer this spot over uchi. The cold and hot bites are the star and it’s always a great date night spot.

@jewboyburgers - $

delicious burgers, queso, latkas, and burritos with the friendliest owner!

My favorite spot for a romantic night out. I love the vegetarian options, the estate bread, and the trout. Not huge on the steak or other dishes but the desserts here are to die for.

Address: 4100 Red River St, Austin, TX 78751
