I often photograph my food, but sometimes I don’t have enough photos or content to make individual posts. So here’s the round-up of my latest Austin eats. In the few months, I’ve been to a couple of particularly cool places. Links to all the locations are included in the post. Previous editions can be found here: Austin Eats Round-Up.
Acai Hut now has a brick and mortar location at Mueller! They have light bowls, powerful bowls, naughty bowls (with things like Nutella and oreo, omg) and acai boats for larger groups of people. I ordered their powerful Finish Line, which has açai, guarana powder, coconut water, and banana as its base. It’s topped with granola, goji berry, banana, chia seeds, almond butter, and coconut flakes. Highly recommended for those days when you’re craving a treat, but still want to give your body something healthy.

Ola Poke now has a North Austin location! Located in the same shopping center as Main Event, there’s plenty of parking, which is wonderful. I’m not a poke expert, but I do eat a lot of sushi, so that counts, right? I thought the bowl was delicious. I kept eating it as I was trying to take photos! I got their small bowl with one scoop tuna and one scoop salmon. I topped it with a bunch of stuff, including pineapple. I must say, the sweetness of the pineapple was a perfect match for the tuna and salmon.

THERE’S FINALLY DELICIOUS BOBA IN NORTH AUSTIN! I’m so excited about ShareTea Austin! It’s also right next door to Ola Poke – how cool is that? Last time I visited, I ordered the matcha milk tea with boba pearls instead of red bean. I got it with regular ice and no added sweetness. It was still super sweet tasting to me! I can’t imagine adding more. But hey, to each his own. If you’re up north, this is your new boba spot for sure.

Steel City Pops at Rock Rose is the perfect place to take a break from your shopping and walking around. Even though it’s getting colder, you will still find me treating myself to these tasty frozen desserts. I’ve been a few times and have had their basic popsicles (below is their Jasmine Tea popsicle) and their fancier dressed up pops. The Jasmin Tea pop wasn’t overly sweet. It tasted JUST like jasmine tea (probably because it is) and I couldn’t have been happier with it. I’ve also tried their pumpkin pie pop – a way fancier pop that’s coated in white chocolate and dusted with graham cracker. It’s more like ice cream than a popcicle. It tasked just like a pumpkin pie! I couldn’t believe it. I’m always pleased with my Steel City Pops.

Did you know the 365 by Whole Foods in Cedar Park has a freezer full of macarons and mochi? Mochi ice cream is a popular Japanese-American dessert made by covering bite-sized balls of ice cream with a sweet Japanese rice dough. The macarons are a new edition to choose-your-own-frozen-dessert freezer. You can pick out whichever flavors you would like, mixing mochi and macarons. You pay either per item or you can get a discount if you purchase a certain number. If you’re at 365 by Whole Foods, don’t leave without a little container of frozen treats!

Curcuma is one of my newest Mueller Farmers’ Market finds. I’ve been to the Mueller Farmers’ Market twice (once in the spring, and once in the fall) and Curcuma’s “Golden Mylk” is an absolute favorite. It’s a milky drink made with turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, Himalayan pink salt, black pepper, Medjool dates, and coconut milk. It feels like drinking pure health. My recommendation would be to try a cup of it, then by the paste. You can scoop some of the premade paste into a blender with your choice of milk and BAM, you have Golden Mylk at home.
