Free Tacodeli From Favor, Blue Bell's Listeria Fine, and More A.M. Intel

The latest eight restaurant tidbits in Austin served right now

Nadia Chaudhury is the editor of Eater Austin covering food and pop culture, as well as a photographer, writer, and frequent panel moderator and podcast guest.

— Favor is getting into the free food delivery business like competitor UberEats by serving free breakfast tacos from Tacodeli tomorrow, Tuesday, August 2. Users will open the app that morning, and place an order for two tacos, migas and/or potato, egg, and cheese from 9 to 11 a.m.

— Breakfast-centric Extra Crispy's new bacon critic Scott Gold interviewed two other specific-food writers about their jobs, including Texas Monthly's barbecue man Daniel Vaughn, and how he got the job and how he approached eating barbecue all the time. Vaughn didn't approve of being represented with a grill, though.

— Blue Bell Creamery is being fined $850,000 over the listeria outbreak last year.

— Alamo Drafthouse closed the South Lamar location yesterday because of the death of an employee.

— Chi'lantro was featured in a New York Times article about restaurants going cashless, which the Korean-Mexican mini-empire implemented earlier this spring. Owner Jae Kim cited the change as growing "with our customers."

— Uchi's Tyson Cole talked about how he became a sushi chef with Vice Munchies, and how Uchi and Uchiko came to be, and how the restaurants approach food and fish.

— Bribery Bakery's Wells Branch location has new hours: the bakeshop is now open from Tuesday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and on the weekends from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Turns out Enchiladas y Mas got rid of breakfast last month, which means no more breakfast tacos or migas from the Tex-Mex joint.
