Cocktail at Drink.Well // Taco at El Primo // Pork Belly Sandwich at East Side King

Well, it took about a full week to recover from the energy suck that is South by Southwest. It was extremely fun and extremely exhausting all at once, like most great things are. I spent last week trying to catch up on sleep and feeling a little bit like death for the majority of the time, but after plenty of food that would not appear on the food pyramid, and way too much chipotle, I'm ready to get back on track with productivity and eating foods that occur in nature. The music talk will come later this week, but let's start with the second best part of SXSW: the food. This year was a particularly good time for eats because Paul Qui (Top Chef winner and adorable genius) curated SouthBites over on Rainey St and Driskill, and despite being a bit of a trek, we managed to eat there twice. My boyfriend had a run-in with some mediocre BBQ, but every other morsel that entered out mouths was beyond delicious. Unsurprisingly the winner of the whole trailer park was East Side King, which I ate at both visits. I had a pork belly sandwich (pork belly, pickled veg, some sort of mayo, Hawaiian-style roll) which I still have dreams about and the Kara-agĂ© Kimchee Yakisoba which I could have eaten a vat of. All in all, it was a food lover's paradise.
