There are oodles of places to eat downtown and honestly, the hardest thing is narrowing it down to favorites. I’ve pulled together a list of places that get thrown into the mix with some of my fave menu items from each. Happy eating!
621 E. 7th
Love, love, love the Japchei – sweet potato noodles, fresh veggies and worth adding the tofu.
400 W. 2nd Street
Salsas, guacamole and the street corn are what keep me coming back. If you’re looking for a more substantive meal, go for the hongos & huitlacoche huaraches.
If you’re looking for snackage to accompany your drink, I’d suggest the grilled shishito peppers and edamame. Purple Curry, although pricey, is awesome, if you’re looking to fill your belly at dinner time.
600 N. Lamar
Love going for breakfast. My husband and I usually split the fried egg sandwich (minus the bacon) and have a veggie (beet) sausage on the side. Messy and yummy.
Guadalupe Location (campus)
I swear by #83 with egg rolls – huge bowl of noodles, fresh veggies, tofu, chopped egg rolls and a peanut sauce.
