If you live in Austin, then you know the city has a fun and funky side. This vibrant city celebrates its uniqueness and even has an unofficial motto to “Keep Austin Weird.” This holds true for the restaurant scene as well, with an enormous amount of independent restaurants each with its own vibe. All within an easy drive of Cole Apartments, there are lots of offbeat eateries worth exploring. Here are a few near these South Lamar apartments:
Capturing the spirit of a tiki bar, Pool Burger is a festive spot near Deep Eddy Pool. The decidedly “kitschy” decor includes wild floral seating and grass-lined touches all around. While the food and drinks come served from a silver Airstream, Pool Burger has a high-end focus with the use of hormone-free and all-natural Wagyu beef. House specialties include the classic Pool Cheeseburger, the Hippy Burger, and the Blue Hawaiian.
Found in the South Congress area, Lucky Robot ranks as one of the hippest spots in town. Billed as a “Japanese Kitchen”, Lucky Robot has bright colorful accents, including green exposed ductwork and a yellow indoor swing used for seating. Known as the area’s premier sustainable sushi eatery, this funky restaurant serves items such as Steamed Pork Buns, Robot Ramen, and Crunchy Atlantic Salmon Rolls.
Truly one-of-a-kind, Russian House makes a name for itself in the Austin culinary scene. Customers feel transported to a home in Russia with white lace tablecloths and framed vintage photos on the walls. The menu stems from the home country as well. Enjoy dishes such as Wild Alaskan Salmon Roe Caviar, Russian Blini, and Georgian Chicken Chakhokhbili.Back to all posts
