Hillstone Restaurant is a tried and true steakhouse in University Park, Dallas. I normally eat here for a weekend lunch every once in a while. However, it doesn’t matter if I’m coming in for lunch or dinner or whatever day I’m here - the food has always been high-quality.
Near where I live down over in south CSTAT, a new coffee shop opened about a year or two ago called "The Tipsy Bean -- Wine and Coffee Bar." As the name suggests, they serve a variety of coffee, red wine, white wine, rose, cheese boards, craft beers and pastries.
Back in Ames, I mentioned that a lot of the Chinese restaurants were so good because they were authentic, but it turns out I've found my new favorite Chinese restaurant here in College Station!
Razzoo's Cajun Cafe was started in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in 1991, and has since expanded all over Texas, including to College Station! I don't recall it seeing it before leaving for Austin last fall (or maybe it was already there...), so this summer was the first time that my parents and I went together (they'd gone a few times earlier this year).
Austin (and really, Texas in general) is known for its famous BBQ spots, such as Franklin's (where lines can get up to seven hours long), Stiles Switch, and Iron Works.
When finals season comes around, I'm always trying to find new study places -- to both get a change of scenery and to escape the people camping out and taking spots next to all the outlets in the campus study spots. Here's my new hideout: the Austin Public Library.
It's been a whole school year since I last posted, which means it's been a whole year since I've had to publicly admit to eating out wayyy too many times than my credit card should have allowed... Anyways, here's WTF: Where's the Food for semesters 3 & 4 (otherwise known as WTF: Why'd you spend so much money on food, Annie??)
