Austin Way - - SCENE | STYLE | SPACE -

WHO: Ex­ec­u­tive Chef of Eden East & Eden East Cater­ing, Hill­side Far­macy, and Sin­clair in Clifton, TX (ede­neas­t­austin.com).

TRAF­FIC-STOP­PER: “Chen-Z Noo­dle House (6705 Hwy 290, 512892-8888; chen­znoodle­house.com) is my fa­vorite spot in town. It’s worth brav­ing the traf­fic at the high­way’s Y split for thought­fully hand­made noo­dles in a spicy rich beef broth and fresh greens.”

SALVADORAN DE­LIGHT: “Costa Del Sol (7901 Cameron Rd., 512-832-5331) is another spot off the beaten path. The pu­pusas are per­fectly crispy on the out­side with a sat­is­fy­ing bean and gooey cheese in­side.”

SMOOTH MOVE: “Olive + M (olive­andm.com) is a skin­care prod­uct that uses olive oil made in Austin. It leaves my skin smooth and clean af­ter work­ing long hours.”

SE­CRET SAUCE: “Yel­low­bird Sauce ( yel­low­bird­sauce.com) is the se­cret in­gre­di­ent to many of my home-cooked meals. We love of­fer­ing th­ese sauces at our restau­rants in sup­port of lo­cal busi­ness.”

SALSA AD­DICT: “I have tried to recre­ate the 1931 recipe for Jaime’s Span­ish Vil­lage Salsa ( jaimes­sal­sas.com), but it’s sim­ply im­pos­si­ble (or­der through Farm­house De­liv­ery or find it in the re­frig­er­ated tor­tilla area by the cof­fee roaster at Whole Foods on La­mar—trust me you need the land­mark!). The story be­hind Jaime’s—of love, fam­ily, and be­trayal—is worth the pur­chase.”
