This might have actually been considered Part 3, but we were pretty late getting into Austin. I don’t have a flash yet, and we were enjoying some great time with wonderful friends. We explored Austin and ate some delicious food. There is definitely something to be said for the foodie culture there. Although foodie is the kind of word that doesn’t really hold as much weight anymore as it used to in my opinion.
In Houston, we decided to stop and eat at The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation, because it was on The Best Thing I Ever Ate. We love to try the restaurants that were on the Food Network, and this one was sure not to disappoint. The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation definitely had the best thing I’d ever eaten cheesy, and I have to thank Mo Rocca for the recommendation. We had the queso flameado, and I would definitely suggest you go there and get it soon.
Then we went walking around the general vicinity and found interesting art at the restaurant nearby. Israel Tierra Santa means Israel Sainted Land. It was a beautiful pot with a little cactus sombrero on top.
And of course you couldn’t get out of Texas without a shot of a longhorn. Hook ’em baby!
