Even More Food Options on S Lamar? Yes, Please!

At Blairfield Realty, one of our favorite things about having an office in the Zilker neighborhood is our proximity to the numerous dining options on South Lamar Boulevard. You can satisfy nearly every craving at the many South Lamar restaurants, whether they are longtime Austin fixtures or have just recently joined the local culinary scene.

For years, we’ve enjoyed noshing on Mexican food at Matt’s El Rancho, diner grub at Kerbey Lane Café, sushi at upscale Uchi and French cuisine at Olivia. More recently came small plate fare at Odd Duck and Barley Swine, tapas at Barlata, interior Mexican cuisine at El Mesón, and authentic Neapolitan pizza and homemade pastas at aRoma Italian Kitchen & Bar. And that doesn’t even take into account smaller venues like East Side KingLuke’s Inside Out food truck (also serving its French-inspired sandwiches and appetizers at the the Gibson Street Bar next door), and the many trailers that dot South Lamar!

Now we can look forward to two new Asian dining options with the openings of Chi’Lantro and Ramen Tatsu-Ya. Chi’Lantro, now open at 1509 S. Lamar Blvd. in the former A-OK Chinese space, had its beginnings as a food trailer, serving bulgogi tacos and kimchi fries. Ramen Tatsu-Ya, scheduled to open January 25 at 1234 S. Lamar Blvd., is the restaurant’s second location. The first, located on Research Boulevard, brought Austin what it claims to be the city’s “first authentic, brick-and-mortar Japanese ramen shop” and enjoyed huge popularity.
