ILSYM Ep. 40: Matthew Odam on top BBQ, Fareground and new Austin restaurants

There’s always somewhere new to eat in Austin, and in this week’s episode of “I Love You So Much: The Austin360 Podcast,” Austin360 restaurant critic Matthew Odam talks with co-hosts Omar L. Gallaga and Addie Broyles about the recently opened restaurants on his radar, including Tyson Cole’s new casual eatery, Loro; which barbecue restaurant earned his top pick in a recent ranking; what dishes stand out at downtown’s Fareground food court; and why every Austinite should venture to San Antonio for tacos once in a while.

Ahead of Austin Lemonade Day, several lemonade entrepreneurs, including second-graders Rowan Briscoe and Joey Svoboda, came to the studio to talk about their business strategies and lemonade recipes. Westlake High School students (and brothers) Sidharth and Rohit Srinivasan, who participated in Lemonade Day when they were in elementary school, explained how a low-stakes business like a lemonade stand helped them launch a full business, Trashbots, which makes and delivers low-cost science and engineering kits to students around the globe.

With summer around the corner, Eric Webb shares in this week’s Webb Report his list of the top Austin tourist attractions and which ones he thinks are totally overrated. (Sorry, bats.)

In our Toast recommendation segment, Addie recommended the 2016 documentary, “Kedi,” about the thousands of cats that roam around Istanbul and the relationships they inspire with the humans around them. Omar has been loving his Joule, an immersion circulator that can turn any pot of water into a sous vide machine, and Tolly recommended an episode of “Reply All” called “No More Safe Harbor” that helped her understand the unexpected effects of Backpage’s recent closure.
