Where in Austin can I get
Fresh lard - not the shelf-stable hydrogenated kind.
Frozen fish - Can't find it at Central Market. The stuff at my HEB on Oltorf looks and tastes freezer-burned and Whole Foods discontinued their frozen tuna steaks and salmon fillets (boo! My only reason for shopping there)
Raw oysters in a restaurant- Cap'ns is our usual choice but they taste kinda pale since our February trip to New Orleans - an unfair comparison to be sure and maybe it's just the warm weather.
Fried chicken - besides the Sunday buffet at Java Noodle where it's terrific but absent as of late. (maybe I should call ahead and request)
