Yangtuo Club is tucked into a small shopping center, so it's quite easy to miss. They've got quite a few options as for what to eat: you can get the dry hot pot for 9.99$/lb -- meaning, you can add whatever the heck you want for that price per pound, an all-you-can-eat hot pot buffet, where you can chose the level of spice for the soup base, as well as noodles and fried rice.
Fusion Peru, as the name suggests, combines both traditional Peruvian flavors with a dash of American, and it does an incredible job!
From late night papers to morning pick-me-ups, the classic cold brew stood there to make sure I was not only awake but also focused and alert. In short, you could say cold brew has been my strongest supporter (sorry Annie!). So it’s noteworthy for me to say that I have crowned arguably the best cold brew in my new home of Houston, Texas -- Anonymous Cafe!
Salty Sow has quickly become one of our favorite happy hour locations. As they advertise themselves, Salty Sow is an American Gastropub that serves contemporary farmhouse fare located fairly near campus on Manor Road.
Dim sum is a huge part of Chinese (especially Southwest Chinese) culture -- there's early morning dim sum, afternoon dim sum, late night dim sum, so growing up, we were always on the lookout for good dim sum in the area. Here in Austin, there aren't that many places that have good, authentic dim sum, but fortunately, Lin's is one of those few.
Sour Duck makes their own artisan bread and pastries; they have their own smokehouse to make their own meats; and they make their own specialty coffee (the Mexicano latte here is sweet and nice, but most of all, just heavenly). And these things aren’t just for dine-in; as a market, Sour Duck is kind of like a special grocery store where you can get nice restaurant quality foods, to eat in or take back to your crib.

We're BIG chicken people: chicken and waffles, chicken and biscuits, just chicken, fried chicken, we love it all. So we're always on the lookout for more chicken places around town, and when my roommate started raving about this new place called Bird Bird Biscuit, you bet we immediately hopped into our car the next morning for an early brunch.
