“The Peking duck, thin beef slices with sauerkraut stew, and Sichuan fried chicken at Bamboo House.” was one of my favorite meals in 2022, as quoted in this Eater article.
If you want to take someone on a date that includes Chinese food, I recommend Old Thousand on the East side. It’s a hip spot with a cocktail bar.
This beautiful spread of food is at Sugar Pine, a new cafe in North Austin. You’ll find onigiri, chicken karaage, soba noodles, sets, and homemade ice cream.
And the best for frozen dumplings, honestly, buy a bag at the Asian supermarket. This is the brand that my parents always buy so I’ve always bought this brand.
Everyone loves Chi’Lantro’s kimchi fries but they also have chicken wings, tacos, rice and noodle bowls.
Thai Fresh is a bit more expensive than your typical Thai restaurant in Austin but that’s because gratuity is included the cost already.
