They have several different tours around Austin-each with a different theme. The original tour is on Sundays on South Congress but we wanted a Saturday tour. The Saturday tour is the Downtown Tour that starts at the big Farmer's Market and then you walk around town to different restaurants.
A few fun facts about Austin from our tour guide- Austin has over 2200 restaurants and 600 food trucks! Austin constantly has new restaurants opening constantly and others closing-it's a big hub for eating out and is ranked #3 for eating out in the US! It's only beat out by Dallas and Houston per capita.
Okay! Onto the food...
- 1st stop was a delicious breakfast taco from a local favorite- TacoDeli. If you want a local favorite try Migas- it's eggs with corn tortillas in it, it adds a yummy texture element-try it! You'll like it!
5. Walton's Fancy and Staple- They have a lovely bakery as well as a deli and even flowers for sale. We tried the brownie and the famous "golden egg"-basically a simple but melt in your mouth cookie made with only butter, flour and sugar. I'd love to try even more on my next trip!
7. Cupcakes from delish- I had the Oreo chocolate cupcake and it was, I'll just say it, delish.
8. Our final stop was the Ginger Man. Since we don't drink we had some root beer but I was so stuffed at this point that I could barely have a sip! (it was good though).
We had a blast learning about all the different restaurants in town and about Austin in general. I recommend this tour for locals and tourists alike! It would be a fun way to spend a few hours with family in town, wandering around the city and eating good food!
