There area a gagillion websites out there that claim they know what is selling in Austin, Texas.  Truth is, they don’t know.  Austin Board of Realtors and above that the State of Texas is a non-disclose state.  Meaning- the only way to get the true numbers on what has sold is through a Realtor.

Hello, my name is Martha.  I am a Realtor.

If you follow my blog, you know I have a little crush on Paul Qui, winner of Top Chef Texas and Executive Chef of Uchiko.  I FINALLY got over to his trailer, East Side King, last week.  The husband and I had a little date night on the East side.  Now I went to Zavala for 4th grade and Martin Jr High for 7th and 8th, but my how things have changed.

We started out at East Side Show Room for cocktails, apps and split and entree.

Featuring AustinBeerWorks!


Cocktail Menu Selections

We chose the fried chickpeas, grilled shrimp and the quail with peaches – all to spilt.  We LOOOVE sitting at the bar whenever it is the two of us, taking to the bartenders and learning new things.  Then it was off to Shangri La– which happens to be right across the street, but I took us on a few blocks round about, which ended up nice as we saw so many interesting spots on East 6th.  In the back of Shangri La- hosts East Side King, Paul’s trailer.

Shangri La Location!

This is one of 3 locations- and the Husband ordered the cow tongue.  It came on a bed of rice with mint and tomato- almost a pico de gallo.   It was so fun to people watch and enjoy the 88 degree evening (all beit 100% humidity- can’t win them all).

So I am late to the party- but better late than never!
