Good Food, Good People: Snack Bar

One of  our favorite places to people watch, sit outside and eat/drink local and organic food is Snack Bar Austin: Fine Foods.
 This restaurant not only houses some of the friendliest waiters in town (who have easily become our friends), it has a deliciously laid back vibe.
 They always welcome dogs, and we are big canine lovers here at TNOAustin! you might be able to tell from our many dog pictures on our social media sites)
Contrary to what the name might suggest, Snack Bar isn't just a spot for a quick nibble, and here are a few of our fav's from the menu:
- Naked Nun by Adelbert's Brewery, brewed right here in ATX!
- Brussels Sprouts: caramelized sprouts, herb aioli. --- A legend in the Austin area, a local favorite!
- Okonomiyaki: Bacon, shrimp, squid, cabbage & leak hashcake, sesame-tamari aioli, srichacha, bonito, nori. ---We were feeling adventurous, and our waiter that evening sold us on this plate when he said it was served...moving! Disclaimer: not it is not still alive, it just moves due to the heat and the flakiness of the nori seaweed.
- Antonelli's Cheese Board" hard and /or soft cheese, house chutney, walnuts, French loaf.
- Mac & Cheese: cheddar, gruyere & parmesan mornay, orecchiette, bread crumbs
- Creme Brulee: strawberry jam, fleur del sel.

There are many scrumptious options at this entertaining and unique display of South Congress Avenue. We are sure to keep updating our favorites from here with each visit! Make sure to take a picture of their sign that has easily become a staple of a SoCo visit.
This is a great spot to sit outside any time of the year; they are ready with heaters and blankets on chilly evenings and air conditioner-h2o spray on warmer nights.

*Shout out to Ryan and Matty for being our great waiters, Trey for hosting, on our multiple visits!
