    My recent dining experience at Aba left me utterly impressed. The outdoor seating area, adorned with lights and surrounded by lush greenery, creates a magical atmosphere setting the stage for an intimate and pleasurable dining experience. The star of the show, however, was undeniably the food. Every dish presented to us was visually appealing and bursting with flavor. From the appetizers to the desserts, each course was a testament to the chef's skill and creativity. One standout dish was the short rib hummus, which perfectly combined unique flavors and textures.

    Nori had excellent customer service and the food was phenomenal. I intend to come back here in the future. :) . The only thing I would change would be the drinks my friend and I had. We had a mocktail and the drink of the month and the drinks tasted like sparkling water. So that was a bit disappointing. Otherwise, the food was great. :)

Discover Central Austin

For a city with the motto “Keep Austin Weird,” it's not surprising that the area is home to an eclectic assortment of dishes. This is a part of the city where you can eat breakfast tacos in the morning, have barbecue from a food truck for lunch and end the day with a meal of pork jowl bibimbap. Have a group? Enjoy a hookah with expertly prepared Mediterranean cuisine or Shwarma seasoned to perfection. When it comes to dessert, central Austin is more than up to the task. From donuts adorned with cereal to fruit-filled kolache, you may be ruined for pastries and sweets from any other city. Naturally, you'll also find an assortment of coffee shops throughout the area, and you'll have the opportunity to try an almost endless variety of coffee, espresso and tea.
