What I Ate: November 7, 2010 (Fire Bowl Cafe)

Lunch: We tried a place that was new to us - Fire Bowl Cafe (5601 Brodie Ln # 550, Sunset Valley, TX (512) 795-8998) which reminds me of Martin Yan's fast food chain - Yan Can. They take a mix of vegetables and preset meats and stir-fry with premade sauces. I started with an order of potstickers. They tasted like average frozen dumplings but at least they were not mushy like most of the Asian pan fried dumplings we get in town.

Then I had Chicken and Beef combination stir fried with Spring Veggie Mix, Hunan Black Bean Sauce, and Chow Fun. It was a little over sauced so it was a little salty.

Tina had the Fire Bowl Fried Rice which we started off thinking was a little bland but over the course of the meal we grew to like (at least more than the other fried rices we've had in south Austin).

Dinner: I ate the leftover chow fun and fried rice from Fire Bowl Cafe.

  • I used to go to Firebowl a lot when I lived down the street from one and everything got covered in either sriracha or hot mustard. I think I used most of their menu as a hot sauce delivery device.
