It’s National Eat What You Want Day. So you should, you know, eat what you want.
Here are some of the delicious (but maybe not all that healthy) foods and restaurants we’ve been buzzing about lately here at Austin360.
Chi’lantro. The Korean barbecue eatery is donating 100 percent of its profits on Tuesday to the victims of last week’s stabbing attack at the University of Texas. That’s the best reason we’ve ever heard to treat yourself to some kimchi fries.
Prince’s Hot Chicken. The famous Nashville hot chicken joint is hosting pop-up events on Tuesday and Wednesday at Independence Brewing. Hot chicken + beer = the perfect combination for this unofficial holiday.
Tumble 22. In case Prince’s wasn’t enough hot chicken for your liking, the Tumble 22 Hot Chicken truck opened this week.
Peached Tortilla. This Austin staple just started its lunch service this week, so take a little lunch break and have a Thai shrimp tostada or banh mi taco.
Kula Revolving Sushi Bar. It’s gimmicky, and Statesman restaurant critic Matthew Odam says the sushi isn’t particularly good, but it’s got good prices and hey, you can watch your sushi on a conveyor belt.
Ramen Tatsu-Ya. We know what you’re thinking: Who wants to eat hot ramen when it’s warm out? Well, a lot of people, because Ramen Tatsu-Ya is great ... but you can order chilled ramen this summer. Enjoy.
June’s All Day. This “mash-up of a Parisian bistro and the Peach Pit” nabbed a spot on Food & Wine magazine’s list of the 10 Best New Restaurants in America recently, and for good reason.
Kemuri Tatsu-Ya. The Japanese-Texan fusion restaurant was named among GQ’s best new restaurants in America.
