So much yumminess!
Pate's, headcheese, sausage, insanely crisp and delicious pickled vegetables!
Duck Pate's and French Toast bread pudding in a jar!
Noble Pig was featured on Diner's, Drive-Inns & Dive's!
|Mini Dark Chocolate ganache tart sprinkled w/ sea salt and bacon YES BACON!|
This was sooooo good!!
The crust was so buttery and light!
But it was very rich and delicious!
Line out the door!
|Mushroom, crab and potato soup|
Our insane lunch!!
|BLT w/ Egg|
Sauteed Bacon Tomato sammie w/ PORK BELLY.
I don't think I need to say anything else hahahaha.
I also added an over easy egg on top of it.
Let's just say I probably cut off a year to my life.
But not enough to order the French Toast bread pudding in a jar HAHAHAHAHA.
They heated it up for us in the jar and added a layer of caramel sauce on top because it wasn't decadent enough...... hahahahaha.
To busy digging in to be bothered to look up hahahahaha.
After lunch I got to meet up with an old friend from high school who just so happened to be visiting Austin :)
So stylish I adore her ballerina top knot bun and her stacked gold necklaces!
Good luck w/ your wedding plans Lina!!
You're going to be a GORGEOUS bride!
Snuck into Neimans woman's lounge to snap some quickie OOTD pics!

Unfortunately there were a bajillion people in the bathroom #FML. hahahaha.
I mean seriously there's NEVER EVER ANYONE in the Neiman's bathroom... except of course when I'm trying to take gratuitous self photos... and then of course they're ALL in there giving me judgemental weird looks (which explains my awkward half smile bahahaha!)
I heart Neimans heheheh <3
One of my comfort foods is really REALLY good ramen!
Makes me feel like I'm home in Hawaii :)
We actually tried going the week before and were told there was a 2 hour wait! So we didn't wait because the Hubs was starved already so the following week we decided to go 30 minutes BEFORE the restaurant opened to wait in line.
We still had to wait 30 minutes though but while I was in line I started talking to a lady in line and turns out she was from HAWAII!! WOOT!! It was so nice.. It was just like being home! and gave me the fuzzy wuzzies hahahaha. *Sigh*
|Charsu Bowl, Ramune & Sparkling Water|
OMG the Charsu bowl was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD! The meat was sooooooooooo tender and juicy.. and smooshed all together w/ the rice.. INSANELY delicious.
This is MY idea of comfort food!
This was the line inside.. the line went outside and wrapped around down the corner!!
|Munchie slider w/ Japanese potato salad|
Ok for whatever reason I thought this was going to be chicken katsu in the slider so I was really surprised when I bit into it and it was fried ground meatball!!! So it was REALLY like I was in Hawaii.. because I would only eat that in Hawaii.. my heart really ached when I was eating this hahahahaha.
Japanese potato salad.. one of my absolute favorite things to eat IN THE WORLD. PERIOD. I don't know why but I'm really weirdly OBSESSED w/ Japanese potato salad.. I heart Kewpie mayo!
|Tonkatsu ramen w/ chasu & par boiled egg|
This was DELICIOUS!
Seriously legit tonkatsu you can tell the soup was stewed for houuuuuuuuuuuuurs and hours and all the yummy porky bone marrow has melted into the soup.. omgosh it was sooo milky and rich.
He's happy hehehe :)
This was mine.. it was a tan tan ramen with a creamy under base which I loved.. I love tonkatsu ramen but I find after eating tonkatsu for a bit it's a bit tooooo rich for me but the spiciness of the tan tan helps cut the fatty rich taste. This was SOO delicious! I loved it!
BTW I always judge a ramen place by the egg.. Ramen egg should always be halfway par boiled. And you can tell from the picture it most definitely was! Two thumbs up from me!
|Ginger Almond tofu w/ tangerines|
Light delicious and refreshing! Perfect especially after a rich and spicy bowl of ramen.
Hahaha so neat!
I actually had to backup to figure out which one was the woman's and which one was the men's bathroom because there was no written sign ahahahahaha. I SWEAR up close they look exactly the same HAHAHAHA. Not helping my case..... *sigh* :p
