Every year, it seems the holidays sneak up on us—and every year, that brings with it the dreaded-last minute gift panic. Finding a present that hits all the right notes can be surprisingly
TLC Austin Oysters And More
Dated: September 25 2021
Some weekends are better than others. I've been fortunate to have been at the beach more than once this summer and host visitors that allowed me to show them a bit of what our beautiful city of Austin has to offer. This past weekend I had company and an amazing time.
If you've read any of my previous blogs, you know I'm a foodie and as such I love cooking but also trying new foods and new restaurants.
My guest and I looked for a fun place with good food and we decided on TLC. I had been to TLC once, before the pandemic, and had a burger which was delicious. This time we decided to get a bit more adventurous.
I had seen an ad showing that they were serving raw oysters and I knew I had to try them. That's what we ordered first. They were served with cocktail sauce, horseradish and an apple cider vinegar dressing that made the delicious oysters extremely tasty.
We then ordered the Bubba sandwich and the wild caught red Snapper, which were definitely good choices.
The Red Snapper was lightly breaded and sautéed, served with jumbo lump crab, grilled asparagus and lemon garlic butter. It was cooked perfectly, crunchy outside, soft and flaky in the inside, as flavorful as expected and very filling. The crab was light and perfectly paired with the lemon garlic butter on the side of the plate. This was a fairly large portion and it could have been shared by two, although it may not seem that way because it was served on this enormous platter.
Now, the Bubba, this was just a sandwich, and although we knew the food here was going to be good, this one was unexpectedly great! The white bread had been warmed up in a pan with butter, which made it crunchy and soft at the same time. The inside was covered in garlic sauce with sauteed BBQ shrimp on Romaine lettuce, pickled onions and avocado. It was a very large sandwich as well and we could not believe that we ate it all!
IThe photo shows a half eaten sandwich, since I forgot to take the photo until then. I will definitely be going back to have another Bubba soon.
We enjoyed this meal with a couple of Micheladas and a glass of sangria.
We left TLC and walked into Lick Honest Ice Cream, as if we had not had enough food. But (click here to read my previous blog) Lick is one of my favorite ice cream shops in town - in reality I love all ice cream shops - but this one has the most unusual flavor combinations for those interested in new experiences.
We had two scoops of ice cream each, I went with the vegan flavors, although I'm not vegan at this time, but I prefer the coconut base desserts to the dairy. This is a must try if you are in the area.
Be healthy, be happy.
