The moment we’ve all been waiting for – EARLY VOTING is here! There are tons of restaurants and breweries offering deals and discounts if you show your “I Voted” sticker and if you needed even more of an incentive to vote, there you have it!
I’ve made it my mission to support as many local Austin restaurants as I can through take out. I know many of you are wanting to try new-to-you spots so here is another list of my favorite spots with the best bites I’ve ordered for take out! Get out there and support local Austin if you can. Our restaurants in Austin sure could use the support!
Remember that pictures and videos are in the Vessel Map rather than down below. If you click on a particular location, you’ll have the option to go to their website, check out a menu and see my pics and/or videos per location.
Chicken Salad Shoppe
If you know me, you know there is a very slim chance I’ll pass up a chicken salad anything if it’s on the menu. I’m obsessed! Did you know we have a Chicken Salad Shoppe in Austin?! Anddddd they have MONSTER COOKIES! They’ll deliver to you if you can’t make it over there. Just get your order in online and they’ll deliver 10-2PM. Anywho, I tried the BLAT and the Texan and they’re both to die for. The Nutella Double Chocolate cookie and the King Bubba were divine and need to be on your list to consume very soon. I had both of those cookies over multiple sittings and multiple days because they’re MONSTEROUS!
If you missed last week’s list, I’ve linked it here for your eating pleasure – Where to Take Out the Best Bites in Austin 10/9/2020
Before COVID struck, I had planned to dine at Comedor for my birthday. My birthday was THE DAY Austin shutdown so I didn’t get that chance but alas, Comedor has curbside and you betcha we finally got our hands on Chef Erales and Speer’s famous creations! We celebrated with a meal from Comedor on the day we closed on our house. Treated ourselves to the Adobo Chicken, Avocado Tostada and a few other tostadas and our tastebuds were singing! I’ll most definitely order from them again and I CANNOT wait to dine-in their beautiful space sometime in the near future.
Peacock Mediterranean Grill
I LOVE MEDITERRANEAN food – anything from that region – Moroccan, Persian, you name it, I’m eating it! Peacock opened up at the Austin Proper Hotel earlier this summer and while I haven’t stepped foot inside the hotel or restaurant yet, every single picture I see of the place has me wishing I was visiting the Mediterranean right now! I’ve ordered take out from Peacock twice in the last 2 months and I’ll order again and again. Get the hummus, their pita is magnificent, any tagine they’ve got, order it, the chicken kebab, the SAFFRON RICE, the manti (like a dumpling)…I could go on and on! I’m definitely swooning over their food and I know you will too!
I hope you enjoy these spots this week! Feel free to check out all the previous roundups I’ve put together with recommendations for take out. I’ve been writing these since early July so you’ve got tons of restaurants to check out!
