First Lady Michelle Obama chose to dine out at Salty Sow in for her first Austin night on Tuesday, March 15. The restaurant had no advance warning that she was on her way for dinner. Once word spread that she was at the restaurant, a crowd formed outside to see her.

The First Lady particularly wanted the bread pudding, according to a rep for the restaurant. She shook chef de cuisine Nick Sheeley's hand when she left. Following below was her party’s full order of the family-style dishes, according to a rep for the restaurant.

Her husband, President Barack Obama, picked up tacos from Torchy’s before his SXSW Interactive keynote speech last Friday. She is participating in the SXSW Music keynote today with Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, Diane Warren, and Sophia Bush.

The First Lady is fond of eating out in D.C., including restaurants and hotspots like Komi, Rose’s Luxury, and Momofuku CCDC.
