Time Flies…when you’re tired as shit!

I have made it my new goal to continue on with GBJ. Trust mama when she says that there is more than plenty of material to keep us going for a while.. The little peanut is nearly 1.5, I am still married to amigo, and we’ve managed to keep up with our mortgage payments! I’d […]

Pho Dan is pho-king delicious!

I am going to be honest here….I DO NOT like nor do I trust Asian cuisine, I just don’t.  I can’t be diggin’ on a place that hangs naked ducks in the windows (Enticement?  I don’t think so.) or on a cuisine that insists on showering everything on the menu in fish sauce! I’ve had […]

Ross’s Old Austin Cafe – North Lamar

I have been waiting to review Ross’s and it’s not an ideal time now because I am starving…but, I will go ahead and get it done! I had gone to Ross’s once back in early 2001 or so, and since moving to a more centrally located spot in town, I simply (and oh so sadly) […]

Dim Sum, little bundles of deliciousness

Chinese food is something that can be great if you know what you are eating, but it can sometimes be a bit overwhelming if you don’t have much experience of it. One of the things on the menu that can really bamboozle you is Dim Sum, however once you have tried these little parcels, you […]

First comes love, then comes marriage…..

That’s right, it’s official, Amigo and I are expecting a mimi-amigo in December.  A) thank you, Universe for not having me be 9mos pregnant in August or September and B) I pretty much basically feel like shit all of the time.  I am hoping that this sickness ends soon and that I can just go […]

Zed(s) … Not Dead!

My #1 amigo and I decided to treat ourselves to dinner this past weekend.  One of our favorite past times, besides the actual action of stuffing our faces, is to try new restaurants!  Considering that we moved merely a month ago, we have been encountering mucho food in suburbialand…. Friday, we decided to try Zed’s.  […]

Pablito’s Bakery – Austin, Texas….

Let’s begin with a trip to tacoland.  Pablito’s Bakery @ Bluff Bend and Braker is par none.  Everything I have had there is divine.  (They could use some help with their coffee-making skills, but….)  Gorditas, quesadillas, tacos, tortas, everything!  Very fresh and flavorful and most importantly, affordable.  Pablito’s is better than La Mexicana (my former […]

Review: Zandunga Mexican Bistro Austin!!!

  Zandunga is the second child for the east Austin staple, Mi Madre’s.  It has been several months since our trip here, so it’s a bit hard for me to recall many specifics.  I will say this though, I realllly wanted to like it, beacuse I love Mi Madre’s and I think that the family […]

GBJ Soap Opera Update…

Phew, sorry about that ya’ll! I done went and got hitched to amigo, bought a house (HEADACHE, but worth it), got a dog (Frankie!!!!), and had family in for the holidays – life has been insane… Something swell did indeed rise through the smoke – we are amidst a plethora of new restaurants and bars […]

Review: #19 Bus – Austin

The food trailer has become somewhat of a local revolution, they are everywhere.  Some are good, some not-so-much and it’s a high stakes game when I compromise my food.  To the west of the new East Side Drive In (whack) is a commune of food trailers, and one of those is the #19 Bus.  An old […]
