Austin360Eats: First looks at Fukumoto, Café No Sé

Editor’s note: Welcome to #Austin360Eats! Share photos of what you’re enjoying at Central Texas restaurants, cafes, food trucks and more by adding #Austin360Eats to your photos on social media. Each Friday, we run our favorites in print, which is where you can catch these Austin-area Instagrammers later this week.

Fukumoto has only been open for a few weeks, but Amanda Harville (@modestvail) has already found an excuse to stop by the izakaya, or Japanese pub, at 514 Medina St. — these chicken meatball yakitori that you dip in raw quail egg and bonito flakes.

Another new spot on the Austin dining scene is Café No Sé, inside the South Congress Hotel at 1603 S. Congress Ave., where Melissa Carrol (@melissacarroll) had the Basque cake from pastry chef Amanda Rockman.

Mandola’s Italian Market has three locations in Austin, and all of them serve arancini, those fried risotto balls that diners such as Nicole Riccardo (@nicolericcardo) like to dip in marinara sauce.

One of our newest #Austin360Eats contributors is @so.whatcanyoueat, an local teenager who can’t eat milk or gluten and started the account to answer that eternal “So what can you eat, anyway?” question. Recently, the answer was salmon and steamed vegetables at EZ ‘s Diner, 3918 N. Lamar Blvd.

Fredericksburg has always been known for its German roots, but nowadays, peaches and wine seem to be the main draw to this Hill Country destination. Over the weekend, @atxeats went straight for the schnitzel, duck schnitzel, to be exact, from Otto’s at 316 E. Austin St.
