We pulled into Austin around 7:30, ready for dinner and drink. We followed people’s recommendations (no advance research) which led us to some good eats, a nice Texas Real Ale Coffee Porter, and a great bar, Lustre Pearl. Again, it was Sunday, so it was delightfully chill, the air was warm, and the whiskey was cheap. And I was able to say many many times, “we’re not in Kansas anymore.”
We followed more local recommendations for breakfast and coffee, starting with breakfast tacos (new to me) at Juan in a Million. Juan in a Million won the Best Handshake from a Restaurant Owner, and I’d agree. We were taken through a rowdy dining room back into what appeared to be an empty employee cafeteria, but people soon began to trickle in, and the atmosphere improved. I tried the egg and chorizo taco and a migas (scrambled eggs with tortilla mixed in) taco. Both were delicious.
Before hitting the road again, Coffee was necessary.
