Austin, TX | ustakababgy.com
One of the most underrated restaurants in Austin! Usta Kababgy is a hidden gem that specializes in halal barbecue over charcoal. My favorite thing to order there is the Iraqi Kabab which is a combo of beef and lamb. It also comes with fresh, warm, and fluffy pita bread.

Austin, TX | tealhouse.co
I fell in love with these the first time I tried them a couple years ago and they still get my vote as the best cinnamon rolls! They’re warm, fluffy, and topped with cream cheese icing that’s not too sweet.
Austin, TX | sotosouthlamar.com
The Uni Pasta from Soto is the definition of decadence. It’s a super creamy dish made with sea urchin, poached egg, shaved truffle, and truffle salt. A must try!
Yenta Latke Burger
Austin, TX | jewboyburgers.com
Another best in my book, Jewboy Burgers! You can’t go wrong with any of the burgers here but the Yenta is my favorite. It’s a juicy cheese burger with a crispy potato latke in between a potato bun.
Mexico City, Mexico | Los Cocuyos IG
One of my most memorable bites in CDMX! Los Cocuyos has a bubbling cauldron of meats that are chopped to order and less than $1 per taco!

Fatcarons are a popular overstuffed South Korean variation of the traditional French macaron! The filling is like a whipped cream buttery texture that just melts in your mouth. They come in 15+ flavors!
Miami, FL | ceviche105.com
I loved the ceviche here so much, I ate here twice during my trip to Miami! They serve Peruvian style ceviche and have different flavors to choose from. You can even order a flight of ceviches to try!
Austin, TX | simiatx.com
Simi Estiatorio’s version of traditional Greek comfort food, yiouvetsi, is made with orzo, white wine tomato sauce, lobster, shrimp, scallops, calamari, and feta. Light and flavorful with a bit of spice.
New York, NY | magnoliabakery.com
My first time trying the famous banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery and it definitely lived up to the hype for me! It’s super rich, creamy, and the banana flavor isn’t overwhelming.
