Eat: Hillside Farmacy
I love Hillside Farmacy - it's one of my fave places to dine at in East Austin. What's not to love about a place where some staff members wear lederhosen and big wooly socks with shorts? It's like Inglourious Basterds-meets-Top Chef....a beautiful mash-up of sights and flavors, I will tell you that much.
Yep, I had committed the cardinal sin of not making either one of us breakfast...and let me tell you, when John's blood sugar takes an gold-medal worthy dive, he lets me know about it (and I secretly think it is adorable when he gets a bit grumpy). Like a modern day Snow White and her 7 dwarfs, we instead had Hillside Farmacy and the 6 stages of low-blood sugar. Luckily, there wasn't enough time to act like total freaks since the food arrived lickety-split after we placed the order.
Into my belly went the smoked salmon with lavender honey, capers, fennel, and house slaw. To say I enjoyed every bite is an understatement. Can't wait to go back. The faccia bedda sandwich with smoked mozzarella, roasted red bell pepper, arugula, tomato, red pepper flakes is calling my name. Nom nom nom.
