Beer

I’m definitely raiding the beer alley at whole foods when I turn 21.

-Dogfish head 90minute IPA
-Real Ale Brewing Company
-Sapporo (for me, heheh)
-Paulaner double bock – never again, i’m fine with shiner… not man enough for this brew.

Fricano’s

Sharing the Fricano’s love! Today they had a Hunter Lawrence special, but I stuck with my usual “turkey special on multigrain, with pesto, grilled.” (below)

remember to make sure your sandwich is grilled

So, as expected… school is going quite slow. Why am I so pessimistic and unsure?

ABSA Boat Social

ABSA’s boat social was fun, but I think I realized that ABSA isn’t for me. I’m still a bit hesitant about throwing an entire year’s effort of meeting people out the window… but it’s time to move on.

My favorite food is tacos

2009-09-06 23.55.17

I’m not going to say why, but the James and I were in a paticularly bad mood one night, so we ventured to La ┬áMexicana for some late night eats. I have no idea why, but it hit the spot more than ever.

F***ing barbacoa with avocado, lime, onion, and salsa is the best shit ever, oh and add 2 breakfast tacos… since I love breakfast stuff.

This is my answer to Anthony Bourdain’s “What would be your last meal?” question.

Potential food blog

2009-09-04 12.26.29

I really wanted to start a food blog… but I don’t think people want yet another blog of me feeding my ego. Maybe I should just keep my favorite findings to myself and my friends.

I had lunch at Cafe Mundi on friday, which was really nice especially because Shara came along. I really liked the soup of the day, and I really recommend the joint to anyone looking for a tasty, light lunch. (Excuse my poorly composed picture from my mytouch).

Since we’re on the subject of Shara. I just can’t seem to capture her sweet and oh-so-lovable side. My goal by the end of this school year is to take at least 1 decent picture of her.

Performance Photographer?!

FSA @ Unity

So I got the opportunity to take pictures at Unity, a skit/performance contest put on by the omega phi gamma frat. I felt really cool sitting on the sidelines with a huge lens and multiple DSLRs. The thing is, I wish they gave me better notice, and a practice run through so I could have known wtf was going on.

A lot of pictures turned out quite well, so I’m happy.

Plea!

I’m a pretty lonely guy, so if you ever want to talk about anything…. I’m here for you man (or hopefully girl). As you can tell from this blog… I like food and photography, but we could talk about anything. I’m up for lunch and dinner anytime.

Academically, I’m in the red zone… but for some reason I’m just not feeling the pressure. I can’t bring myself to put any more effort into studying which is very scary.

I wanted to make a whole big post about my own take on “karma.” but… yeah I need to devote my braincells to studying.

Anyways, here’s a photo dump. Despite eating out a lot more than the average freshman, I believe that I’m just barely scratching the surface of what Austin has to offer. This city kicks ass.

Kaiten zushi (conveyor belt sushi)

moar nigiri kudasai.

My friends and I went to KG sushi train on Friday… and for my first sushi experience in Austin… I wasn’t impressed. The quality of the sushi varied greatly; I felt they were trying to trick people into filling up on imitation crab. Practically every roll had some fancy… avocado/fish outside, but 100% imitation crab on the inside. The nigiri was top notch though, best salmon I’ve had anywhere in Texas. I ended up paying 26 bucks for a sub par meal.

Based on my new restaurant grading scale I give this place a 5/10, since the conveyor belt is quite entertaining if you’ve never been to a place like this before. This place is no crave, which is a 1.5/10.

-Short and Sweet

krazy drink, yes with a k

I believe that’s the name of this tapioca / ice cream place. They’re famous for their “krazy drink” which contains various shaved ice toppings and some sort of sugary… juice. It’s some awesome stuff.. Earlier today I returned to try their durian ice cream, which was awesome.

I really don’t know why people bash Austin’s chinatown. It maybe small, but it has all the staple stores. I’m betting that these skeptics don’t get out too much.

-Unexpected visit

james' "new" z.

Well, james visited this weekend… and all we did was eat, and eat some more.

Din ho, coco’s, la mexicana, china palace, and short and sweet…. pretty awesome in my opinion.

Traffic

ms 150

Traffic was horrible since the MS150 was going on. But, I rarely miss an opportunity to take a picture :).

My next post should be after I return from Boston :P.
