I've scrolled and read a lot of Austin posts but it appears mostly about downtown restaurants. Anything up north exceptionally good? Pflugerville area?

  1. The European Bistro in Pf is excellent.

    1. Ka-prow on Howard Lane is great for sushi and hot sake.

        Beluga's Ahi Tower is a must. Sushi Nini has great HH deals
        Pizza Corvina is in the same shopping center

      2. I really like Mangu Cafe which is just behind the Tinseltown theater. Their lechon asado is excellent. The prices seem a little high, but they give you a lot of food and I usually end up making 2 meals out of mine.


        1. Taste of Ethiopia is an all-around great restaurant.

            I'll second that! I ate there with my wife last Friday and had no idea what to expect (neither of us had ever had Ethiopian food before). Everything was exceptional. We will definitely be back!

          2. pizza corvina makes great pizzas and has a good happy hour too.

            1. In Pflugerville, my votes are for

              Dot's Place--chicken & dumplings, pork roast, greens & cabbage
              European Bistro--desserts
              Mangu--intoxicating mojo (lime garlic sauce)
              Mediterranean House Buffet--like Dimassi's but on a more personal scale
              Taste of Ethiopia--vegetarian lunch buffet is excellent

                We were at the European Bistro a week ago, and the Hungarian cabbage was tart and crispy. I couldn't stop eating the generous portion of jagerschnitzel. I actually skipped dessert, which is almost unforgivable. They do have the best European style cakes and pastries.
                Chowhounders, the Bistro is struggling in this recession. I would really miss the old fashioned elegance, excellent pastries and the graciousness of the sister-owners if it were to close. I will be visiting more this fall and I hope they can stay in business.
