Time flies. My last night had come and it was time to go back to the real world after great time in Austin, Texas. Indeed, I did not know many about Austin, although I visited here last year. However, not as a tourist reading a superficial face of the city, I got to see deeper side of the city including the terrain and cuisine and so on.
We went to a cozy restaurant called Chez Zee, which at first sight looked like one of those American bistro. Yet, I had a best meal here in Austin. Service and portion was also great and piano rhyme played by a guy with a bit of grey hair boosted a joy of the mood at the night. One thing you need to be careful about is you should ask for a seat away from the piano as it can be too loud and you won’t be able to hear each other.
For Appetiser, we had Pecan Crusted Brie. It was a funny moment the bread and the appetiser were too good so my partner had to stop me for dinner. I had Bacon Wrapped Beef Tenderloin with Melot. My partner selected Jalapeno Cornbread Stuffed Chicken. Both meals are too good to stop. Especially my tenderloin was nicely cooked (medium rare) and bacon surprisingly went well with the beef. Menu is available from their website.
The place looks like it was converted from a big house to restaurant. The cozy ambience reminded me of a little hotel on the top of the hill in Worcestershire in the UK, which was small and served nice breakfast. Another point I loved this place was interior. It was eccentric with a bit of funkiness. Every detail of the interior was unique.
Unfortunately, we had so much good food, and did not have enough room for desserts. Chez Zee’s dessert won the best dessert in Austin, so I strongly recommend you try when you visit Chez Zee.
