I really love the storefronts along S Congress, they really capture the unique weirdness that Austin prides itself on. Much more appealing than the corporate stores where you don’t know which city you’re in.
Before shopping we got an early lunch at Tacodeli, I love this place since they use super fresh ingredients and have interesting tacos. I thought the fish was way too salty though and really glad let the cashier talk me into the El Picosito as it was my favorite.
After shopping we were thirsty and needed a snack before dinner so popped into Hopdoddy. The Live Oak didn’t taste much different from a Hoegaarden, wanted to taste Texas in it.
