In the Best Restaurant Meals series, I curate my most noteworthy nosh from the past week(s) with mobile photos.
Let’s off start with the meal of the week: Brunch at Olivia
Brunch cocktails. Bellini and blood orange mimosa at Olivia in Austin, TX. Why yes, that would be the handsome @TheRealMrFury behind the sparkling.
Pickled pig's ear sandwich and grilled shrimp with bbq sauce on cheesy grits. The grits was amazing but it paled to the best sandwich I
Crab meat enchilada at South Congress Café (Austin, TX). Stuffed to the gills (both myself and the enchilada).

Every Monday, all dosas at House of Dosa (Vancouver, BC) is only $5.99! This particular one has a mixture of potato and shrimp rolled up in the rice/ lentil crepe. Love their ginger/coconut chutney.

Beautifully fresh sashimi salad at Guu Izakaya in Gastown. Black cod, salmon, hamachi. I love Vancouver.
Just for kicks, "Kobe" beef sausages with a killer pepper/goma (?) sauce. All washed down with some cold sake at Guu Izakaya in Vancouver, BC
P.S. See what I made with the famed Hatch Green Chiles. Until next week!
