We were super excited to check out Alamo Drafthouse later that night. We saw Attack the Block (soo good!) and snacked on potato skins and sipped on beers and cocktails. I really wish we had a place like this in Baton Rouge. I would head out to the movies much more if I could be served cookies and milkshakes while enjoying a great independent film. Speaking of milkshakes, my one regret of the trip was not ordering the salted caramel milkshake. I was eyeballing it for a while. Somebody go try it and tell me about it in great detail!

We had a great meal at Iron Cactus on 6th St. Great margaritas! I had the Elder Margarita which had St. Germain in it and a little bit of cinnamon. Lobster tacos....also delicious, sorry no picture. They were too yummy!!!
Finding a brunch spot on a Sunday on South Congress was a bit of a debacle. We ended up getting a table at Enoteca and it was so worth the wait. That cappuccino completely brought me back to life. We had perfectly poached eggs on foccacia bread with roasted tomatoes. I highly recommend this place for brunch, the menu was insane and they had a bunch of gorgeous pastries as well.
Next up was HopDaddy for a burger. Homemade buns.............need i say more. Can I just add that when you are a tourist visiting a new place- sitting at the bar in restaurants is kind of a must. The staff are much more inclined to talk to you about the food and drinks. Also, you never know what other fun knowledge they might drop on you. I had a great cocktail here too, I don't remember what it was called but it had ginger beer and lime with vodka, really refreshing and spicy!
Best meal of the trip - Uchiko. Please go here people! Delicious bold Japanese food, I'm really not even sure of what we ate. We sat at the sushi bar and put our faith in the sushi chef. He feed us dish after dish..........I was not disappointed once. May I suggest the fried milk dessert??? Again, I'm not even sure what it was but pretty crazy delicious.

And last but not least.............. Monday morning on our way out of town we stopped at Gourdough's. We had to!!! Big fat donuts, please and thank you sir. I had Porky's (canadian bacon with cream cheese and pepper jelly) and boyfriend had the Flying Pig (it was loaded with bacon and maple syrup icing). This place is glutinous to say the least, but it's just one of those things...........try it!!! I'm getting so hungry just writing all this, off for a snack :) and ps. thanks for listening to my food rant
