Moving to the Westgate area... tips on what's down there?

popvulture | Jun 17, 2013 07:33 PM

So I'm moving to SW Austin and am psyched to see what kind of options there are down there for ethnic stuff. I've lived in 78704 for years, and while there is a bunch of great food there, all of the great ethnic stuff seems to be farther away from the center of town. I know this certainly applies to north Austin, but what about south?

I know I'll have Sap's, which is great. There's another Thai place called Tuk Tuk on Manchaca where Subsin's used to be... has anyone tried it? I hear good things about Cafe Malta but don't really know anything about it. I will probably be frequenting El Pollo Rico on S1st quite a bit. What about Chinese? 78704 has ABYSMAL options, so it's nowhere to go but up in my new area, I'd imagine.

What else is there? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there are some exciting gems stashed down there.
