Whistling past the graveyard.
It’s getting pretty bad over on the Austin Chowhound board. If any of our readers could please sign up over there and start posting we’d really appreciate it as it’s getting hard to round up 5 good pieces per the 7 day period we’ve allotted ourselves.
Now onto Chowhoundjunior where, each week, we harvest the “cream of the crop” of the once mighty Austin Chowhound board. 1]Poster “scrumptiouschef” was curious about Nuernberg Brauhaus: New German in Pflugerville. Unfortunately this restaurant has recently closed. More here on the closing http://chowpapi.com/wordpress/wordpress-2.8.6/wordpress/?p=1656
2] One of the few remaining die hard hounds on the Austin Chowhound board “amysuehere” had a very satisfying meal at Mi Kfecito Cuban on Research and Ohlen, a local Cuban restaurant. We haven’t been but when we need our Cuban fix we run by Cuban Sandwich Cafe in the Windsor Park neighborhood. The owner is the chef and is also a very fine baker. Do not skip the pastry case.

3] Two and a half years is a long time in the world of online food commentary. Poster “tom in austin” started a hamburger thread back then. We think the term motorcar was starting to be bandied about during that era. “tom in austin” is a veteran hound whom we’ve been recruiting for input on this site for awhile now. Poster “lucky_skunk” recommends the prime time burger at Hopdoddy, the local burger joint we champion.

4] Poster “foodiegal71” is looking for south Austin banh mi. McGuire Moorman Hospitality group is running the banh mi scene in that end of town with their Elizabeth Street Cafe. More http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/mobile/postDetail.cfm/BE3B0BDF-087D-F88C-422B6F8CF618E032
5] Poster “slowcooked” recently ate at Stiles Switch Barbecue in north Austin, the new outfit from former Louie Mueller pit boss Lance Kirkpatrick. It’s a good one. Feature here http://chowpapi.com/wordpress/wordpress-2.8.6/wordpress/?p=1824
Hope that helps with any queries y’all might have had.
When we got banned from Austin Chowhound http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2011/11/18/Scrumptiouschef-Hits-The-Big-Time-Thrown-Off-Chowhound-For-Once-And-For-All we saw a golden opportunity to continue our work, we just knew it would have to be from a distance.
Thanks for checking out this feature each week. It consistently ranks at the top of our monthly page views.
