BBQ in Texas Is No Joke

Cooper's Pit BBQ in Austin, Texas | by Lillian Lee

After this trip, I can never have BBQ back home in Boston. The melt-in-your-mouth brisket is out of this world and I’m now upset at all the times I was served chewy, tough brisket and thought it was good.

Pecan Lodge

This was the bbq spot that made it onto my must-visit list and we were also told by anyone we met that we had to go there for BBQ. Tip: Try to get there when it opens so that you can avoid the crazy lines. BBQ for brunch isn’t a bad idea.

The Pecan Lodge menu. I wish we could’ve tried everything.

We ordered the 3 meat sampler: brisket (!!!), ribs and housemade sausage w a side of collard greens.

So when Pecan Lodge first started they were known for their fried chicken. There’s a reason why. Most amazing friend chicken I’ve ever eaten – so light, crispy and juicy.

The Mister chose the traditional pecan pie.

I wish I could’ve tried them all. Also, the plates that they were served on and the whole ambiance of the shop reminded me of being in London for some afternoon tea.

We explored Deep Ellum and checked out Monkey King Noodle Co. for some spicy beef noodle soup and more. It was definitely one of the tastier beef noodle soups I’ve ever had – there was a lot of flavor.

Taiwanese chicken nuggets which we dippedin the chili sauce from the wonton dish.

After gorging, we needed something sweet so we walked down the street to check out the Monkey King Banana Stand. Super familiar sweets and yummy.
