    They obviously haven't been to an Aussie barbie. We usually have chicken, beef, pork etc etc. I also reckon they should do one of these for RTX Sydney next year.

    Found something interesting today. The really cute melody that is in most of these Vlogs can also be found on the Yakult Yogurt website just click on "little bottle, big story". Too Funny...it really is an adorable tune!

    Thank you for this recommendation! For the 7 days I was there we visited Homeslice, Frank's, and Gordough's from this list, as well as the highly recommended Arlo's, Mother's Cafe, Voodoo Donuts, and 24 Diner (I'm vegetarian). This helped a lot so thank you!!

    Actually a Margarita pizza in Italy is called a Margarita pizza. It was the colors of the italian flag Red (Tomatoes) White (Cheese) Green ( I think its basil if I remember correctly) and also pizza originated in the U.S. but it was made by an italian.

    I'm with Ellie on this one. Margherita pizza is not only better than an American cheese pizza, it's the gat damn original. It's also a lot lighter considering how much you're eating.

    Very true when it comes to the BBQ that in most places it is pork but Kansas we use all cuts of meat in our BBQ. I would say everyone enjoys Brisket more than they do any Pork BBQ in KC.

      Relatively close, you can get decent coffee at Cafe Medici and The Hideout Theater (they have a comfy cafe hangout in the front and theater in the back with small things like improv shows in the evening that are great). It's been a bit, but there was also one on the south west corner of the Frost building. If it's still there, they always loved talking coffee.

    Love this. It's like a con-goer's PSA. I've gone to a few different conventions. And a lot of the time my friends and I just eat wherever we can get a meal in without much planning. Stuff like this would help so much. Plus it doubles down for local businesses in Austin. Lot of local places local to an ongoing convention will prepare for these events, as it makes for a great source of revenue. So its really its great to see Burnie is putting out some highlights for fans and Austin alike. <3

      Listen - I'm from Southern California, so I feel that I have permission to say this:
      In-N-Out is not that great.

      It's very good, but it is not nearly as amazing as it is hyped-up to be. I much prefer Habit - that shit's delicious!

    Full disclosure- Despite living only an hour and a half southwest of downtown Detroit, I was unaware that "Detroit-Style" pizza was a thing.  

    HOWEVER- I HAVE had this before, and it was delicious- I've only ever seen it advertised as "Deep-Dish" pizza.  I think this is why when I went to Chicago (for Let's Play Live, ironically), their style of "deep-dish" pizza was... underwhelming.  I"m a fan of a super-thick crust, which Chicago style really isn't.  Chicago style is basically a pie (thin crust with LOTS of filling/topping) whereas Detroit style is (apparently) a loaf of bread with some meat and cheese on top.


    I learned something new about myself and where I live from this.  (Also, watching this immediately after having eaten is REALLY difficult.)

    Ellie is right, margherita is the basic pizza (the original one) here in Italy. It's named after Queen Margherita Di Savoia, back when Italy was a kingdom, to whom this pizza was served in her visit to Naples (this is probably a fictionalized event since there are sources talking about a similar pizza decades prior to this supposed event). Even it's toppings mirror the colours of the Tricolore (Italian flag): basil for the green, mozzarella fiordilatte (not any other kind of cheese) for the white and tomato for the red. Also a real margherita uses a fine tomato sauce (what in the US they call marinara sauce) instead of whole pieces.

    Texas isn't the only place that BBQ means Beef.  Nebraska is the same way.  You say BBQ to a Nebraskan there had better be smoked Brisket,  grilled Fairbury all beef hot dogs and steaks, and maybe a smoked prime rib!


    I can understand Burnie's mulligan.  I would have just spent the entire day at the BBQ place!  And not been able to try the rest of the food they showed.  Why eat anything else if you can have good BBQ Beef?  But I am a cattle rancher so I am bias.


    Now if I could ever find the time to get off the ranch in July for RTX I know where to eat.

    Man I hope RTX is still going on when I am 60 years old because I am figuring it will be at least 15 years to 23 years before I get that much time off.


    Only one complaint with this vid.  And Given RTX is in summer I can understand why.... But No chilli con carne?
