Adios Austin Chowhounds

I know I haven’t contributed much, but I just wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed reading all the comments and suggestions from the Austin Chowhounds. I’m moving to Asheville, NC next week, so I probably won’t have much need to lurk around the Austin boards anymore. I haven’t been exactly flush with cash since I moved here 4 years ago, but here are some of the foods I will miss when I leave:

The Huevos Mexicanos from the Eastside Café
The Chicken Tortilla Soup from Central Market Westgate
The BBQ at Blacks in Lockhart

Some of my favorite meals where at:

The Eastside Café

I’m especially going to miss this board. Asheville doesn't have a dedicated board. It's lumped in with everyone in the Southeast:( If you’ve ever been to Asheville and have dining or food suggestions, I’m all ears.

Happy eating, y’all!

  1. How nice! You have contributed a lot. I, for one, appreciate it. Best to you in Asheville. I'm sure you will discover the hidden gems.

    1. Austin will miss you and I will miss your posts on this board, in particular your extensive report on eggs benedict. I've looked back at that thread many times appreciatively.

      If I was the moving sort, I'd feel envious of you relocation to NC. Be sure to eat plenty of stoneground grits, Carolina rice, greens, shrimp and ham.

      1. thanks for being a part of our community.
        best wishes to you in your move.
        now you have some exciting chowhounding ahead of you!

        1. be sure and hit up curras in asheville. original chef from the one here.

          1. Helind in this climate this year, I'm quite envious. I was fortunate to spend a long weekend there last fall and it was a blast. Ashevillians like to think and perhaps rightly so that they are a smaller (and certainly more quaint) version of bohemian Austin.

            Do try Fig, pork belly in your pasta anyone?? it's divine. (pricey


            We loved tupelo honey cafe (i think it's called) and there's an irish pub looking seafood place (Sadie's) downtown that served unpretentious seafood fare cheap and fresh and we loved just chatting it up with the manager. It was great. You can tell locals eat there.

              Safe journey Helind, lover of breakfast foods.

              I'm certain you'll be eating your body weight in biscuits and gravy this time next week.
