La Boîte Café

My favorite macarons in town! We had pistachio chocolate, passion fruit and I don't remember what the red one was. The passion fruit macaron was my favorite! They go perfect with either unsweetened tea or coffee to go with them, because they're pretty sweet. The only downside of the place is that you have to sit outside and during Texas summer you know how that feels... :)

South Congress Cafe

South Congress Burger

South Congress Seafood Parfait South Congress Seafood Parfait

I love walking on South Congress but never noticed this restaurant before: South Congress Cafe. When we got in, they said there was a 20% discount if you sat in the bar, so that's what we did. The food was delicious, the portion was generous, and the staff, friendly.
My friend and I shared a South Congress Seafood Parfait (market fresh fish, shrimp and bay scallops marinated ceviche-style in lime juice with fine diced chilés and veggies on a bed of fresh guacamole with pepitas and crispy flour tortilla strips) and a South Congress Burger (certified black angus beef ground fresh daily, mesquite grilled to your liking and served on a fresh baked roll with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, homemade french fries and smoked gouda, crispy prosciutto & caramelized onion burger). The former one was my favorite. The only downside was that the food was so good that I ended up overeating... :)

Indian Food: Bombay Express

Samosas (above)

This is one of my favorite Indian restaurants in Austin. They're perfect if you're vegetarian. I'm a meat lover, but never miss meat whenever I eat there. I usually like to order the weekend sampler, since I never know what to order and like to have a variety of dishes. I know, I know, I'm a terrible blogger... don't remember the name of most of the dishes. :(
