School House Pub Cheese Board

Food Porn Champion: A Drool-worthy Cheeseboard

School House Pub Cheese Board

If there’s anything I love in this life, it’s a cheese board. And this is an especially gorgeous one, the “National Map of Cheeses,” hailing from School House Pub in Austin, Texas. Fancy fromage, local fruit marmalade, Texas honey, whole grain mustard, and fresh herbs. What’s not to LOVE?! This shot even got picked up off my original Instagram and featured on a cheese board Instagram (lol what, yes, there really is such a thing) so apparently I’m not the only one who thinks this is one gorgeous piece of work.

Heirloom Tomato and Fried Egg Pizza ABGB

Food Porn of the Day: Fried Egg is a Glorious Thing

Heirloom Tomato and Fried Egg Pizza ABGB

Why not follow up last week’s pizza porn with yet more pizza porn? This pie hails from Austin Beer Garden Brewing Co. in – you guessed it – Austin, Texas. And yeah, this isn’t the first time I’ve blogged about fried egg on pizza, but hear me out.

This bad boy was served in the middle of a sunny beer garden, fresh from the oven, topped with fresh basil, portobello mushrooms, goat ricotta, caramelized onions, and the most perfect fried egg you’ve ever seen, complete with velvety liquid yolk. It’s best enjoyed with a cold craft brew (may I suggest ABGB’s Day Trip Pale Ale). After seeing/tasting this beauty, why would you ever NOT order a fried egg on your pizza?

The Most Southern Fried Cake Ever

Collard green and cornbread cake from DariusCooks

We stumbled upon this photo on Facebook and it literally changed our lives. According to the creator, Darius Williams of Darius Cooks, “Collard green and cornbread cake. That’s mashed potato frosting. With gravy. And fried chicken sprinkles.” SAY WHAT. Darius is coming out with a cookbook soon, and if it’s full of food porn-y treasures like this cornbread cake, we are investing in multiple copies. Stat.

Darius, you are our new hero.

Sushi Zushi Tropical Roll

Food Porn Champion: This Vegetarian Sushi Doesn’t Suck

Sushi Zushi Tropical Roll

You’d think that vegetarian sushi sounds depressing and boring, but just look at this one. The Tropical Roll at Austin’s Sushi Zushi is made with asparagus, avocado, cucumber, carrots, sprouts and cream cheese rolled uramaki style, wrapped with mango, and topped with sriracha. Not depressing at ALL.

Port Aransas Shrimp Breakfast Taco

Food Porn Champion: Tacos for Breakfast

Port Aransas Shrimp Breakfast Taco

If you haven’t had a breakfast taco in your life, you (a) have never been to Texas, and (b) are doing yourself a huge disservice. And if you haven’t had a breakfast taco while hungover, you are doing yourself a HUUUUUGE disservice because breakfast tacos are some of the best hangover cures ever. This particular breakfast taco is from a teensy diner in Port Aransas, on the Gulf Coast of Texas. It features fresh gulf shrimp, battered and deep-fried, topped with lettuce, tomato, cheese, and shredded cabbage. Oh, and on the side? Hashbrowns. Why? WHY NOT.
