El Alma

Posted on April 3, 2019 by under Food and Drink, Travel.    

I had the opportunity to travel to Austin for a work conference a couple of weeks ago and ended up having dinner at this cute Mexican restaurant with my coworkers on Sunday night. The restaurant is called El Alma and it was just a short walk from our hotel. Here’s a picture of the menu:

These next set of pics are of a few of the dishes we got to try.

The restaurant doesn’t look like much on the outside but it is super cute inside.

There’s a cool stone staircase in the corner that leads to the upstairs patio.

Anyway, I liked it so much that I decided to take Brian there the day before we left. He actually wanted to go to Terry Black’s BBQ, which is right next to El Alma, but the line there was out the door and through the parking lot. We decided to go to El Alma instead. I didn’t mind going again because I thought it was really good.

Here’s a picture of the stone stairs during the daytime.

People probably thought I was weird for taking so many pics of the stairs but I didn’t care. The stairs are cool!

We were there for a late lunch but they were still serving brunch so I got to enjoy some mimosas. These were the best ever because they’re made with delicious mango puree instead of orange juice.

It was a little bit gloomy that day but the weather was nice overall. It was a great day for dining al fresco on the restaurant rooftop.

Their rooftop patio offered a nice view of the downtown Austin skyline.

Don’t mind Brian’s face. He was just a little cranky for not being able to get into Terry Black’s and not getting his Texas BBQ fix.

We started off with some delicious queso.

I’m not sure Brian quite knew what he was ordering but he said it had lots of great flavor and absolutely enjoyed it.

This is by far the best tres leches cake I have ever had. It’s like a cross between a tiramisu and a tres leches which are two of my favorite desserts.

Brian enjoyed some local beer.

It was so great to have a nice leisurely lunch. Brian and I enjoyed our dining experience at El Alma tremendously. It actually worked out that we couldn’t go to Terry Black’s because I’m not that much of a BBQ fan anyhow. More on our Austin trip next post!
