If you find yourself smack dab in the middle of Sixth Street in Austin and your sweet tooth is calling out for satisfaction, check out Voodoo Doughnut. They will satisfy your craving for sugary goodness. My friends and I dropped in here after a downtown meeting today and it was yummy. I had the “Bacon Maple Bar Doughnut” with maple frosting and bacon on top. Killer!
My Friday evening consisted of a nice Jazz/Blues band at the Domain and a pizza on the patio of Flaming Pizza which overlooks The Great Lawn with its small amphitheater. This is a casual pizza joint that just opened a few weeks ago. My pizza of choice was the “Bacon n’ Shrooms” with white sauce, mozzarella, mushroom, applewood bacon, garlic, and arugula. Yummy! They only make one size pizza, about 11 inches, and you can build your own or pick one of their specialties off the menu. I believe they will all have a thin crispy crust, hot from the flaming oven. The next time I return, I will load up on a build your own version, starting with Canadian bacon and then piling on more toppings from there. 🙂
If you are like me, and you love pizza, check out 800 Degrees in the SLS Las Vegas. You start by viewing the menu while they hand toss your pizza dough. You then select your style of pizza – for me it was Verde, a green pesto pie. Watch as they build your pizza and add the toppings you select – for me, bacon and meatball. Order a salad and a drink while the chef places your pie into the oven. By the time you pay and settle into a table, your awesome creation is ready for you to devour. Yum!
