Thanks to Yelp Austin, I won a giveaway for a FREE bicycle food tour around East Austin. To say I was ecstatic is an understatement. I was over the moon! I couldn’t wait to hop on a bike (mind you, the last time I rode on a bicycle, I was 15 years old) and eat my way thru East Austin.
The Yelp Austin Food Tour Gang (with a few members missing)
If you’re not familiar with Austin Eats Food Tours, it all started from a couple’s experience in a food tour they had taken in another city. They couldn’t believe Austin didn’t already offer one, so they took it upon themselves to start one up. Before they knew it, they were the hot tamale. I mean, why wouldn’t they be? Even for native Austinites, it would be silly to not use an afternoon to explore the amazing eateries in your town. Our tour guide (and founder of Austin Eats Food Tours), Andy, was awesome. This guy knows his food!
Well, maybe I can add a cute gato before I share my recent taco adventure?

Much better, right? How can kittens not cheer anyone up?
East 6th Street Trailer Park & Eatery
This past week has been quite the adventure in food truckin’. Our family has promised ourselves to ditch chains and fast food, and stick to local and yummy food trucks and restaurants (although, the occasional trip to Carl’s Jr. may be inevitable). We want to support local businesses, after all. So, during our first week of the new year, we visited two food trailers inside East 6th Street Trailer Park & Eatery and a long-time favorite a few miles away…
Granola Breakfast Quesadillas
Today I’d like to welcome my dear, beardy Husby to TYG! It’s widely known amongst our family and friends that he cooks and is quite the kitchen connoisseur (at least, more than I can ever be). He was kind enough (after much convincing… ok… demanding) to share his latest creation that he learned from a local eatery in our city.
