Deli Bento Lunch (Austin)

We went to the Sunset Valley Farmer’s Market, south of Austin to have a look-see. It’s a great neighborhood farmer’s market, with lots of organic produce. I liked the raw milk cheddar cheese from Full Quiver Farm but they ran out so I couldn’t take a block home.

We picked up lunch from the Deli Bento vendor to bring back home. I haven’t had a bento in ages!

Goveas Mexican Restaurant (San Jose)

Here in San Jose, there is no shortage of Mexican restaurants. Most of them are good, with some better than others. If you avoid the chains and go for the mom-and-pop type establishments, you’re sure find some gems.

Goveas is one of those restaurants where you can get a good meal at a decent price. Located in a strip mall at Tully and Quimby Roads, across from the Eastridge Mall in east San Jose, it’s a small joint with maybe a dozen tables, one waitress, a couple of cooks, and the owner. Decor isn’t much to look at but you come here to eat the food, not the decor, right?

Annie got the chicken enchiladas. They were yummy. She didn’t care for the white, sour-cream based sauce though.

My chile verde burrito. Great flavor, quite filling, and only $3.25! Can’t go wrong with that. Only thing I don’t get is why they have to serve it on a searingly hot plate.

They do an excellent chicken mole as well. This place has become our default Mexican restaurant.

Kreuz Market (Lockhart)

We went on a barbecue pilgrimmage to Lockhart, south of Austin, known as the “barbecue capital of Texas“. Would we find some good ‘cue there?

Chick-fil-A (Austin)

These days, we mostly eat at home or at sit-down restaurants. But every once in a while, we go out for fast food like an In-N-Out burger or KFC. Out in Texas, they don’t have In-N-Out but they do have Chick-fil-A. Our friend said they have the best chicken sandwiches. Never having had their sandwiches, we decided to drive thru and grab a quick snack.
