austin: bouldin creek cafe

Bouldin Creek Cafe is probably my new favorite restaurant in Austin. I briefly mentioned it in one of my other Explore Austin posts, but I feel like I should do a separate post just on this cafe to do it justice. 

travel: colorado bend, texas

A few Aprils back, my college program made a weekend trip to Colorado Bend, Texas, which is only less than two hour away from the bustling city of Austin. Colorado Bend is a state park in the Hill Country region of the state, so we were able to spend some time hiking and exploring caves during our days there.

travel: port aransas, texas

Port Aransas is about four hours away from Austin and is one of the longest barrier islands along the Texas coast. It's now become a fishing, beach and resort village, and the weather is incredibly nice (though be prepared for extreme humidity and lots of sunscreens, or sunburns, in our case).

college station: yangtuo club

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.

houston review: razzoo’s cajun cafe

Cajun food plays a big role in the food scene of Texas, but here at HMHS, we haven't really been able to experience much Cajun food, let alone good Cajun food. This changed when Razzoo's Cajun Cafe contacted us to try their top menu items. And o my, was it a very pleasant experience with tasty and fun dishes.
