texas love

last month i took a quick weekend trip to texas with some friends and fell in love...with the people and food :) we mainly stayed in san antonio and did a quick trip to austin, but i'm itching to go back to explore more...especially to stay here.  since our visit was a bit short there wasn't a lot that we did, but below are a few fun and delicious places we visited! i inhaled most of my food, which is why there are a lack of food photos! so sorry!

sweet yams, san antonio, tx - a small, family owned spot that offers so many gluten free and vegan options! they also have this amazing bbq chicken sandwich called "lil' chicken boy" and their sweet potato cupcake that is to die for! if you're allergic to dairy, they can even make the cupcakes without frosting, which is what they kindly did for me :) i'd also recommend their sweet potato shrimp - everything here was so delicious that we came back multiple times!

pearl brewery, san antonio, tx - such a cute area! my friend who grew up in san antonio recommended for us to check out this place.

spurs game -  i'm not an avid sports fan, but we were lucky enough to catch a san antonio spurs vs. portland trail blazers game. the AT&T Center is huge!

city market bbq, luling, tx - a-mazing bbq! we got here kind of late so most of their bbq was out (i.e. brisket and sausages), but we had a chance to try their ribs. oh my goodness...i've never had ribs so tender and flavorful where i did not need any bbq sauce...seriously so good! we stopped at this place on our way to austin based on a recommendation from one of our uber drivers.

rudy's bbq, san antonio, tx - everyone hyped this place up and i mean EVERYONE. honestly, it was a bit of a let down for me and my friends. i would definitely recommend city market bbq over rudy's, but it was a fun place to check out and their sausage was pretty good.

6th street, austin, tx - i wish we had a chance to spend more time here. there are so many cute bars and restaurants on this street! i'm hoping my yearly girlfriends trip will be in austin so we can explore this city more :)

of course while staying in san antonio, we took a visit to the historical alamo and did the river walk plus shopping!

i plan on visiting texas many more times and would love your recommendations!
