Sala and Betty: Locally Sourced Salads and Sandwiches

July 24, 2017 12:00 pm

The family that owns Sala and Betty knows firsthand how difficult it can be to start up a local business with only elbow grease and a dream. That's why they seek to support other small local businesses in everything they do. This includes sourcing their ingredients from farms around Austin.

Sala and Betty's team builds relationships with the local farmers and ranchers in order to bring the best ingredients to your meal. Start with a light salad, such as the organic greens salad, which showcases a colorful medley of beets, pine nuts, goat cheese, and lemon-basil vinaigrette. Save some room for a fully loaded sandwich, like the Mister T. It's stuffed with smoked wagyu sirloin, avocado aioli, mixed greens, and blue cheese sauce—plus fries. The signature Sala showcases smoked chicken, mixed greens, cilantro, mint yogurt, and fries, so be sure to find out which sandwich is your favorite at Sala and Betty!

Kuneho: Classic and Innovative Sushi in Austin

July 11, 2017 12:00 pm

Happy hour is such great fun at Kuneho that a single "happy" simply won't do; the eatery's founders call it "Happy Happy Time" instead. From 5 to 7 p.m. every day of the week, patrons flock to this beloved Austin eatery for Happy Happy Time. Small appetizers start at a mere $2 apiece, like the crispy onion and the enoki mushroom with tamari. For a bit more, enjoy a maki roll like the Mama Mia with tuna, cucumber, and avocado, or the Kimcheese eggroll stuffed with Velveeta and kimchi.

If you decide to come for a full meal, your options expand quite a bit. The large list of sushi and sashimi encompasses everything from yellowtail to Spanish mackerel, while the collection of maki rolls offers a few inventive eats. For something totally unique, try the K-Town Roll with short rib, kimchi, and Asian pear. The Unicorn en Vaso is a grilled "sushi" creation with grilled corn, corn milk, and a sea urchin. Save some room for chocolate mochi cake or jasmine sorbet at the end of your meal at Kuneho.
