Typically busy week reporting on the Austin Texas food scene.
Two of our ongoing projects are very near fruition. Firstly: The Istanbul book, on where to eat in the city, is tantalizingly close to completion. Chapter work is finished, Turkish language translator hired, final edits from both editors are coming in daily and photos are being shipped to layout team. Secondly: Research for “The Austin Texas Barbacoa Trail” iphone/android app is finished. Hit the mutton barbacoa cart out hwy 290 this morning and that brought to a close the eating part of the project. Now, enough with the blatant self-promotion, here’s our weekly top 5 Austin Texas food stories:
