Austin Food + Wine Festival 2019

I have never been interested in Austin Food + Wine Festival. Not sure why though. What got my attention was when I saw pictures of Billy Durney, Rodney Scott, and Elliot Moss cooking in Austin last year. I was like what?! There is barbecue? I mean it does make sense considering it is Austin after-all. I attended the day events on Saturday and Sunday, but there are other events (Feast Under the Stars, Grillin' and Chillin' and Rock Your Taco) that you can go to as well. There were a lot of delicious bites to be had. I did not take a picture every dish with my camera though. My bad. I remember the duck fat refried black bean taco from Nixta Taqueria and the pani puri from Lenoir distinctly. They were quite delicious. Here is my photo recap:
