Las Manitas, Austin
Las Manitas is an Austin institution. Mexican food diner. I don’t know else how to describe it. Excellent breakfast. I am sure a pretty good lunch too but we opted for the breakfast. My favorite thing though was the auqua fesca lemon/lime. Not too sweet but just perfect zip of lemon and lime seltzer drink. I’d buy a case. Different flavors too. The vibe in there is the perfect greeting to the flavor of the city.
They had erected a memorial to Anne Richards who must have been a regular. She was a great woman who really made a difference at home but also nationally. One of the first women to rise up to be Governor of her state. She will be sorely missed.
