New site feature. We spend a lot of time browsing the landscape of Austin, Texas food blogs, and there are plenty doing work that bears mentioning.
We sorted through the boring-ass, same ol same ol and garnered these gems: Ginny’s Austin ventures straight into our wheelhouse with a visit to Thai Thani, a stone’s throw from the Scrumptious Chef headquarters. She taps into “an unrealized infatuation with the flavors of Thailand” here http://www.ginnysaustin.com/tour-de-thai-thai-thani/#more-3054
Maggie’s Farm takes a trip to East Austin and visits In.gredients, the quasi-zero waste grocery store where she was able to “procure everything” for her “Pumpkin Mixed Bean Cassoulet with Pork Belly” http://frommaggiesfarm.blogspot.com/
South Austin Foodie rolled downtown and visited Lavaca Teppan-unimpressed http://southaustinfoodie.blogspot.com/2012/10/lavaca-teppan.html
Austin’s Eater outlet has a map of Austin Craft Brewers for you, saying “knowledge and beer together really are power” http://austin.eater.com/archives/2012/10/23/austin-craft-breweries-and-when-to-tour-them.php
and Meghan Ruth Speakerman over at the Chronicle hits up Gemma Love’s food trailer in South Austin: “I swear the curried chicken smelled like grade-A cheeba” We didn’t think any Chronicle writers had smelled the stuff since that Moby Grape show back in ’71 but apparently we stand corrected http://www.austinchronicle.com/blogs/food/2012-10-24/reggae-and-jerk-chicken-at-gemma-loves/
