hi Logan and Rachel,

i just found your blog today, and i've spent a couple of hours reading and enjoying your posts about food in austin. i'm especially pleased that you guys are not shy about trying new and different things.

coming from a mixed family (i'm korean and my wife is chinese), we find it incredibly difficult to find acceptable asian food in austin. you have certainly found most of the decent korean and chinese places in town. special kudos for the write-up on Mom's Taste, a true find for korean food in austin! i've been going there since they first opened.

as a fairly recent transplant from toronto, i just read this latest post and thought that i could return the favour and provide some of my faves in T.O. (as the locals call it).

drop me a line at yjcho1578(at)yahoo.com if you would like a list of must go places while visiting toronto. it really is a mecca of global food, both on the high and low end of the price spectrum.

enjoy the eats!

that horse sandwich is something very special, and i love that they write it on their just to remind you... they could have drawn a little picture of a horse to really rub it in!! But wow, what a feast.


well done on the horse! my younger sister is going to culinary school in toronto, working in a french kitchen and speaks VERY highly of this joint. hope you both are doing well. great post as usual.


You guys have gone where no other blogger has gone before: HORSE! Would have loved a bite of that tartar.

What an amazing meal! Just an FYI...Central Market here in Austin carries Edmond Fallot mustards including Moutarde Violette. It's marvelous.

Shanks, thank you for the kind comments! Austin does lack a little for Asian food, and I do love me some Mom's Taste!

I'll have to drop you a line about Toronto. It was a whirlwind trip, and I hope to get back soon to do the place in a bit more depth.

Thanks for reading!

I know! There is absolutely no fooling yourself with that sandwich. Not with all the reminders, anyway!

Adam, I am so glad to hear from you! And I'm happy your sister approves of the Black Hoof. Definitely awesome.

It's worth a try the next time you make it to Canada! I LOVED all of your Spain posts, by the way. Jealous! ARZAK! AUGH!

Thanks, Sarah! I will have to pick it up the next time we're back in town. It's so distinctive!
