What's a Bustaurant? Find Out on the BlogHer Food Tacos (& More) Tour!

BlogHer Original Post

Here's another chance to explore Austin's cuisine -- this time on a taco tour near our hotel for BlogHer Food '13. This is our fourth no-host excursion that will take place on Friday, June 7 after our reception and it will be led by Wendi Aarons, also known as one of the Mouthy Housewives, who lives in Austin.

We will head to El Sol Y La Luna, now in its 17th year of business in Austin. El Sol y La Luna is a local Latina owned establishment, one that is dedicated to helping local non-profit organizations. Nilda de la Llata, the owner of the restaurant, says, “Come by and experience this wonderful world of art, music and delectable Sol food…good for your soul!”



Another place to try Mexican food near our hotel is Casa Chapala, which is also home to the Austin Tequila Society, a community of tequila aficionados and lovers-of-agave who gather to enjoy tequila in its many forms.



Although is known for its burgers, Casino el Camino is another establishment on our list of places to find good eats; it has been featured on the Food Network. According to the Austin Chronicle Review, this is where you will find "orgasm-inducing Angus burgers."



The last stop on the taco tour could be to head to El Chato, Austin's favorite bustaurant -- yes, a restaurant in a bus! First used as a bus, El Chato was retrofitted in 2012 as Austin's first bustaurant, serving up interior Mexican food!



On this trek through some of Austin's best eateries, I'm sure everyone can find something yummy to enjoy! Keep an eye on our conference newsletters for more information about how registered attendees of BlogHer Food '13 can sign up for this excursion! (Not registered yet? Register now!)
