If you’re in town for SXSW, it’s the perfect time to think like a local. With the help of our friends at Favor, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best local food and drinks you have to try while you’re in Austin.
1. Breakfast Tacos – Veracruz All Natural
On a typical Saturday morning in Austin, people wait hours for a taste of these breakfast tacos. And for good reason—they’re the bomb.
2. Pizza – Via 313
Who would have thought you’d find Detroit-style pizza in Austin? Thick crust and rich marinara sauce. This is a must try in Austin.
3. More Pizza – Home Slice Pizza
Did we already mention pizza? Come on, we know you can’t get enough. If deep dish isn’t your thing, try the city’s thin crust pizza go-to, Home Slice.
4. Smoothies and Fresh Juice – Juiceland
Feeling a little burnt-out from awesome showcases and free drinks? Grab a smoothie from Juiceland. It’s the best detox in town!
5. Healthy Prepared Meals – Snap Kitchen
If you need something a little more substantial than a smoothie but you still want to eat clean, Favor will deliver you homemade, healthy meals from Snap Kitchen.
Waiting in lines during SXSW and mustering up enough energy for Hype Hotel is not possible without iced coffee. Try this local favorite cold brew coffee, Chameleon. We can’t live without it.
7. Late Night Cravings – P. Terry’s Burger Stand and/or East Side King
You can’t go wrong with a burger from P. Terry’s or some Thai Chicken Kara-age from Asian fusion food trailer, East Side King to finish off the evening. No regrets.
Happy South by-ing, y’all! And remember, if you make the rookie mistake of forgetting things like sunscreen, or a phone charger, Favor’s got your back.
