Lucky Robot Serves Up Environmentally-Responsible Seafood That IS Delicious

Thanks to my foodie friend I met through Instagram, @AustinFoodAdventures, I had the opportunity to try out so many dishes on Lucky Robot’s lunch menu.

Lucky Robot has been on South Congress for as long as I can remember but only recently has it come to my attention that they’re Austin’s first sustainable sushi restaurant. I don’t know about you, but I’m hyper aware of how our food choices impact the environment and what is left of Mother Earth. It’s great to support a local restaurant that is offering up dishes with only environmentally-responsible seafood. By making that choice, they’re protecting the ocean and its inhabitants!

I’ve dined at Lucky Robot for dinner several times and finally tried out their lunch. The Chirashi Bot is only available during lunch and that’s why we chose lunchtime to visit! Boy am I so glad I got my hands on that beautiful bowl of all the sashimi! Gah, so dang good!

Feast your eyes on this bowl of tuna, salmon, amberjack, and striped bass sashimi on a bed of sushi rice, avocado, English cucumbers, daikon picklets and a 144 degree egg! I’ll be eating this for lunch everytime I visit Lucky Robot…believe me!

The Schoolgirl Bowl rings all things comfort. Loaded with chicken breast, scallions, and a ton of veggies, eat this dish WARM and savor every bite.


I love a good Okonomiyaki so when I saw they had the Nomnomiyaki on the menu, we had to order it. A Japanese savory pancake with PORK BELLY, napa cabbage, a sunny side up egg, spicy mayo, and all the goodness – you’re not going to want to leave a single drop!

Whenever there is Chicken Karaage on the menu, I get it. These spicy Japanese-style chicken nuggets are to die for!

Where my Vegan friends at? The Farmbot features local farm box veggies, red quinoa, avocado, CASHEW CHEESE in a soy paper – I COULD HAVE EATEN ALL OF THIS BY MYSELF!

Next time you’re out strolling Soco, stop at Lucky Robot and order a ton of Japanese goodness! You won’t go wrong with whatever you choose and you can rest easy knowing you’re eating sustainable fish too!

And if you needed even more of an incentive to go — Happy Hour is M-F from 4:00-6:00PM and they’ve got a weekend happy hour during their Tokyo Brunch from 10:30-11:30AM (brunch is 10:30-3:00PM).

If you need a lunch or happy hour date, hit me up!

Bon Appetite,

Who Said Recovering From Surgery Meant Eating Boring Food?

I started to have a slight panic attack in the days leading up to my foot surgery. What was I going to eat?! I mean Snap Kitchen would definitely be in the picture and breakfast was simple (oatmeal or smoothies), but that would be only 2 meals and I need 3!

So anyway, foot surgery is NO JOKE y’all. The pain meds made me so nauseous that I was drinking Ensure for the first week — ashamed to say it y’all. I always associated Ensure with being in my 80’s. But whatever works and kept me from passing out. Pro Tip: The strawberry flavor of Intrust (generic Ensure) tastes like a strawberry milkshake from McDonald’s – or at least the version I remember when I was in my single digits and didn’t eat breakfast but had milkshakes (hehe).

So the sweethearts at Prep To Your Door found out I was having surgery and so kindly provided me with a week of free meals to help with the healing.

Heard of them? I’ve had their creations before and was contemplating a subscription, but finally pulled the trigger last week.

They prepare #plantbased meals in beautiful mason jars, and they’re ready to grab and eat wherever and whenever! I’ll say one thing, it’s made my need to figure out what to eat so much easier since these beauties get delivered to your door on Mondays!

Enter all the veggies and LOADS of flavors. I’ve enjoyed quite a few delicious dishes the last 2 weeks! And all from bed while I heal up 🙂

Strawberry Coconut Oats – these were creamy and topped with apples!

Thai Chopped Salad

Chickpea Cesar Salad – the seasoned chickpeas though!

Apple and Arugula Salad

Daal Basmati – just like my Mom’s!

Brussel and Kale Chopped Salad – loved the added almonds!

I’ve made the most of my healing process and required time off my feet for 2 weeks – don’t get me wrong, I’m so ready to get this cast off.

But, it’s been quite a humbling experience and I feel so good about eating these deliciously prepared, mindful and nourishing dishes from Prep To Your Door!

Interested in giving it a try? Just sign up on their website and then email them at info@preptoyourdoor.com and let them know I sent you! You’ll get 50% off your first week!
