Places to Eat in Austin, Texas ↠ It's All Good Bar-B-Q

So, now that I've shared our big news about baby on the way, I can also tell you another little secret. I've been eating meat again. Yep, after 5 years of being a pescatarian and not having a bite of meat other than fish, I'm a full-fledged carnivore again. I know, it's weird for me too. 

After trying for a long time to get pregnant, I saw a midwife to do some tests and talk about things I could try. One of the things she suggested was that I incorporate some meat back into my diet. I always knew once I was pregnant, if I craved meat I'd let myself have it, because I know your body knows what's best for it wasn't totally out of the question and I started to try it now and then.

Most meat just reminds me why I didn't miss it at all in my five years as a pescatarian (and honestly I haven't wanted it much at all since I've been pregnant), but I have to admit, there are some places that made me happy not to be skipping out anymore. It's All Good Bar-B-Q was one of them...

Dave drove us out here on his motorcycle (before I was pregnant) and we had some bacon wrapped jalapeños (to die for), macaroni (lick-the-bowl good), and beans along with our meat. I got the turkey plate and Dave had tried mulitiple meats. I have to say the jalapeños stole the show for me, along with the ice cold Corona (this was in the summer) after a long bike ride.

The same friend (hey Ketrin!) that tried Bouldin Creek Cafe with me kept telling me I had to try Elizabeth Street Cafe, so we made a lunch date of it and I'm so glad we did! This place is so fun (I want to go back when it isn't one million degrees so I can sit on the patio) and I wanted to try every single thing on their menu. I honestly could have closed my eyes and pointed and ended up thrilled with what the waitress brought me. I kept looking at everything being brought out and wishing I could try it all!

I highly recommend what I tried (thanks to Ketrin's suggestion when I couldn't decide), and even had a few ladies at the table next to us ask what I'd ordered when the waitress brought it out. I had #49 and would definitely get it again...after I try a few other items I have my eye on. ;) I'd love to go back for date night and try their drinks and their pastries look mouth watering as well. Pretty much they have something for every meal of the day...
