I love to go out to eat for breakfast. I enjoy getting up on a lazy weekend and eating out with family and friends. It sets the stage for the rest of the day. I have a few favorite places to go and places that I really don’t like to go. For me, breakfast basically revolves around the breakfast taco. If a restaurant has a breakfast taco, then I’m willing to try it. This weekend, we decided we needed to try something new. I googled breakfast places in Austin and about the only one we hadn’t tried was Star Seeds. I’ve heard about it, I’ve seen it, but I’d never been there.
Star Seeds is on I35 next to a Days Inn, which in my book isn’t a good sign; but I figured I’d suck it up and try it anyway. Thank goodness I did. Luckily for me, they have breakfast tacos. They are some of the best breakfast tacos I’ve had here in Austin. I don’t even know if you can call it a taco. It is a HUGE amount of fillings on a tortilla. I had to ask for another tortilla, to turn it into two tacos. Even then, I couldn’t even finish it. Good eats!
My husband was even more happy. He said this is his new favorite breakfast place. They actually have the good old fashioned breakfast with eggs, bacon and real hashbrowns. Most restaurants these days try to get fancy with their potatoes, but that’s not what my hubby wants. He wants real hashbrowns. Evidentally, they made them just the way he liked them!
The only thing missing at Star Seeds is a latte machine. I guess that would be too fancy for this small diner. That’s ok, I can easily stop somewhere else on the way home!
Tamale House No. 3
Tamale House No. 3 on Airport Blvd. was recently written up in the Austin American Statesman, so I thought I better go try it again! I haven’t been there in forever. According to the paper, they’ve been open for 30 years now! It’s quite fascinating to see the ladies at work behind the counter. They put together many combinations of breakfast deliciousness in split seconds. Breakfast tacos are only $.85 and well worth much more!
You better bring cash, as they don’t take credit cards. Also, be prepared to take it to go, because there aren’t many tables and if it’s cold out, you can forget it!
