It's hot and I'm not just thinking about sweet tea! Who has the best Gazpacho in town? I had a dreadful one at Z'Tejas recently.

    I crave the gazpacho at Perla's. Another thick puree with crab meat and diced cucumber on top.

      Food! Food! at 2727 Exposition makes a delightful gazpacho, and inexpensive. This is a take-out place, with many other tasty offerings. Here is their menu: www.foodfoodmenu.com

      I had one at Eastside Cafe that was a little different than I am used to, completely pureed with small diced pieces of celery and cucumber mixed in. Super refreshing (as one would hope w gazpacho). Though I am a sucker for anything Eastside Cafe serves.

        Russell's Bistro has had it on the menu lately. I had it last week and enjoyed it.

          Texas French Bread is serving an awesome one... Their dinner menu changes frequently so I don't know how much longer it will be available. They are using tomatoes from 4 local farms and it tasted remarkably fresh.

          Not related to the original question, but their fresh pastas are amazing as well.
