What to order at Parkside & Fonda San Miguel?
Coming to Austin and would like to try these 2 restaurants this time. What should I order for dinner? Thx.
Fonda San Miguel Restaurant
2330 W North Loop Blvd, Austin, TX 78756
Their menu is constantly changing according to what's available and fresh. If they have the smoked paprika shrimp on the menu, get it!
Really, you can't go wrong here. Order what sounds good and ask the server what they like as well. Have fun, you'll love it!
..oh oh oh... if you are an adventurous eater, consider having the sweetbreads & veal tongue. ;-)
I agree there aren't many losers on the Parkside menu. Some of my favorites: the ceviche, the oysters (ask your waiter), and the jowl/cheek dish (they usually have pork or beef jowls or cheeks).
The fries are parkside are great. The hamburger is great. Most of the raw bar dishes are great. Most of the entrees (always changing are great). The fried egg sandwich is only so-so. I've never been wowed by the soups.
You probably won't get too much feedback on Fonda San Miguel--most of us don't like paying $20 for enchiladas.
