Within the first couple of months of moving to Austin (3.5 years ago) we began joining friends of ours on Sunday nights for dinner at a local Chinese restaurant. Pretty much every Sunday, except when they're closed or something really special is going on (about 4 Sundays a year).

At this point, our group of friends have a table, a dedicated waiter, and (around Christmas and New Year's Eve) free appetizers. The restaurant has guaranteed income every Sunday, notable tips, and (around Christmas) gift certificates to Fry's.

It's a win-win kind of situation, and the food is really quite excellent.

For Mexican... sorry, I'm spoiled. Growing up in a town (in TX) with a significant Mexican immigrant population, I found too many taquerias serving the Mexican immigrant population to be truly impressed with any Mexican food in a city :-)

As a native Texan, I find this extremely difficult to admit, but we don't have the best Mexican food in the United States.

During a business trip once, I ended up spending a Cinco de Mayo weekend in San Diego, CA. A friend of mine took me downtown...wow.

I recommend the next time you are in London you check out the Texas Embassy. The Mexican food there is quite excellent. Of course it is owned and operated by Texas Aggies!!!
