    Took the kids to Helen's Casa Aldes breakfast buffet two weeks ago.


    I have been there before and have a nice assortment of tex mex dishes but had never tried the Breakfast Buffet. Figured it was a great time to get a review of the place.

    Not bad. 5.99 for Adults and 3.99 for kids.

    The buffet had eggs, migas, chorizo, sausage, bacon, pancakes, HOME MADE Tortillas, cereal, and juices. The juices alone was worth it because I had the kids. The adult price includes coffee.

    I have to say the buffet didn't let me or the kids down. Plenty for them to eat, even if your kids are picky eaters.

    This little place is located in downtown Buda. I say little because it is but it doesn't seem to keep the people away. They are more than willing to wait.

    I give Casa Alde's Breakfast buffet 4 chilis.

  2. 918 Congress Ave.
    Austin, TX, 78701

    Nice hip place on Congress ave. It's like a Mexican Starbucks but with also Tacos.

    We tried the Carne Guisada Taco and Fish Taco. Carne Guisada Taco was good but not great. It was wet and messy. But who doesn't like wet and messy?

    Fish taco was much better. Topped with a spicy cole slaw that was pretty good.

    I have to point out that their salsa is black and smoky. I wasn't a fan but Mandy liked it.

    Overall, We expected more but not a bad place.

  3. Went to Vivo this week based on a friend's recommendation for Vegan tacos.
    First let me define the difference between a Vegetarian and a Vegan.

    Vegetarian - A vegetarian does not eat any meat, poultry, game, fish, shellfish or crustacea, or slaughter by-products. Milk and Cheese is fine.

    Vegan - In dietary terms it refers to the practice of dispensing with all animal produce - including meat, fish, poultry, eggs, animal milks, honey, and their derivatives.

    So now with an understanding of the difference, here is what we ordered.

    Vegan Puffy taco - Tofu
    Vegan Puffy taco - Bean, Avocado, and Cabbage
    Vegetarian Enchilada - Fancy for Cheese Enchilada

    This place is an expensive fancy place. The atmosphere is hip, sitting on the patio is like eating out in the Mexican forest. The food is OK but the atmosphere alone is worth a trip. I hear that some of their drinks have flowers in them.
    Now that's sassy.

    Torchy's was supposed to be the first one reviewed but the 6th street location shut down. We were going to review our favorite tacos there. So we kept on walking to Taco Crap.
