...and I LOVE BBQ... I was in town for a 2 day business trip and had planned to grab some Texas barbeque before flying out. Looking up directions that morning I found that the place I was heading to had a fire the night before, and wouldn't be open for another week.
After a quick search for lunches in Austin, I recognized The Noble Pig from the Travel Channel's Best Sandwiches in America, and was instantly excited to try it. I got there shortly before noon and ordered a Noble Pig and Seared Beef Tongue sandwich. The Noble Pig was fantastic, with ham, pulled pork, bacon and provolone - what more could I ask for? Then I tried the seared beef tongue, my knees went weak and I momentarily forgot about the pork ambrosia I was eating seconds before. The SBT was among, if not THE, best sandwich(es) I've ever had in my life. These guys do an AMAZING job with it, tender, flavorful - I didn't want it to end. It made me cuss. It changed me.
I regret not having room to try the Duck Pastrami, but gave some SERIOUS thought to picking up another Seared Beef Tongue for the road. The Noble Pig sealed the deal with me that I would be returning to Austin in the very near future, if nothing else to visit them again. I picked up some bacon popcorn on my way out which turned out to be a great sweet & salty treat later that day... But the Beef Tongue Sandwich...? Hot Damn...
