The Austin food scene just got its year-end superlatives, but with a twist, stirring the local pot with a blend of time-honored traditions and bold new flavors. 2023 Eater Awards: A roster of restaurants spanning various cuisines and concepts has energized the state's culinary landscape, from inventive Mexican-Japanese ramen to sumptuous Mexican seafood and Egyptian Texas barbecue, as stated in Eater Austin.

Caught cooking up a storm in an Asian supermarket's food court is Ramen del Barrio, serving a hybrid of Mexican and Japanese cuisines. While nestled in the revitalized space of the former Eastside Cafe, chef Fermín Núñez's seafood-centric brainchild Este reflects a rich tapestry of Mexican culinary methods, according to Eater Austin.

Allday Pizza curates New York-style pizza that aligns crisply with its wine bar partner, Flo's Wine Bar & Bottle Shop, making a splash in Tarrytown's food scene.  Allday brings that fantastic thin-crust pizza, plentiful salads, and tasty soft-serve, while Flo’s offers a large wine menu, as per Eater Austin.
