Its time...a visit to Salt and Time
Do you have a favorite food spot that feels just like home? The kind of place where they know your name and what you’re about to order when you walk through the door – the Luke’s diner to your Lorelai Gilmore. That, my friends, is what Salt and Time is to me.
When I first moved into East Austin, the need to learn the neighborhood filled my days and my stomach with some of the most amazing ethnic food in town. Little did I know that I would be won over by beef and pickled veggies.
Salt and Time is an interesting hybrid; half restaurant half butcher, the menu features outstanding cuts of beef, pork, and poultry. They also offer a hearty assortment of local beers, wines, and ciders on both draft and bottles. The aesthetic is simple and clean – probably so you can focus on the glorious meat in front of you.
If we’re talking food, don’t even bother looking at the menu. Just order the burger. Sure, they rotate fresh pasta, salads, and unique cuts of steak that are delicious, but the burger is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Thick, juicy, cooked medium, and served with enormous steak fries, this burger is fantastic in its simplicity. No frills, just high quality beef carefully prepared. By far the best in Austin.
I'm also an amazing fan of pickled veggies and fruits, and Salt and Time does this so very well. Go nuts and order the pickle board as an app.
Don't forget, for a sweet treat afterward, Salt and Time neighbor, Spun, is now open!
