Well after all that back and forth over moving to Austin I have made up my mind. I am moving to Austin and I plan to live in the back room of Frank. And if they won't let me live there, then I'll live in the pay parking lot next door. It's affordable, $6 per day so only $186 for a month's rent. What a bargain!
But let's back up. What's Frank? It's a proud purveyor of pork and its tasty friends.
Translated it means they serve artisan hot dogs, fancy drinks, and are my kind of people. God bless the Waverlies for telling me about Frank.
I started with a summer soda which was served in a mason jar. I think I'm correct when I say that anything served in a mason jar tastes better. Also, I plan on going home and breaking all my barware and replacing it with mason jars. Once I do that you're all invited to come over for summer sodas.
After boudin fritters and green chile chorizo cheese fries appetizers I had a Carolina Pork It, which is a Vienna beef sausage, stuffed with cheese, wrapped in BACON and deep fried, grilled coleslaw, and house made green chile pimento cheese. It was as good as it sounds and I ate it in about three huge bites.
You would think all of that would stuff me, but I still made room for the Frankencookie.
I know savory and sweet desserts aren't for everyone but holy hell, this one did it for me. It's warm house made chocolate chip, pecan, walnut, cranberry and bacon cookie, scoop of Amy’s coffee ice cream, and candied bacon crumbles. It really was the perfect ending for the meal.
The weather here has been beautiful and the property is actually affordable but it's Frank that won me over. So yeah, it appears I'll be moving to Austin.
