Even though Liberty Kitchen came from Houston into the restaurant-heavy Austin, Brandon Watson of The Chronicle is still willing to see where it goes. While the wide-ranging, anything-goes menu with even larger portions seems to go against the city's currents, he still found dishes that worked for him. There's the coastal offerings, like the Maine lobster roll from the East Coast, pimento cheese from Gulf Coast, and the some of the more taste-heavy fare:

The deviled egg trial ($12.75) tops the halves with smoked salmon, fried oyster, pimento cheese and crab, and buffalo-sauced fried chicken, and serves them all with a side of addictive, if not entirely needed, bacon jam. Each has its own flavor profile to recommend.

THE BLOGS: South Austin Foodie revisited Sazon, Austinitie Tips checked out Yard Bar with dog in tow, Scrumptious Chef found Ruby’s BBQ to have the same delicious food he remembered, and Mike Sutter’s taco quest brought him to his fourth Tacodeli.
