Restaurant Review: Satellite Bisto (Austin, TX)

source

I love trying new restaurants in my new city.  I hate being the one to pick the restaurant!  I’ll probably forever be playing the “I’m new to Austin.  You pick!” card.  Because hello, it’s true!

But a few weeks ago, my friend Carrie & I were planning our Wednesday lunch date and I picked!  Go me!

How did I pick Satellite Bistro & Bar?

I got a coupon in the mail for it!  Score.

Satellite Bistro is located down south in the Circle C area.  It was an easy location to find, which is always a win as I’m learning my way around the city.  They have a large outdoor seating area that is perfect for enjoying the spring weather.  Inside, I really loved the fun, retro decor.  The bright colors make it a great lunch spot with friends or family.

For lunch, I had the Shrimp Asian Noodle Salad.  It’s noted on the menu as a house & guest favorite.  The waitress immediately told us that it’s her favorite thing on the menu.  I love it when the wait staff validates my food choices.

Shrimp Asian Noodle Salad:  

Jumbo grilled shrimp atop chilled noodles tossed with mixed veggies, mango, avocado and ginger soy dressing topped with a crispy wonton (from Satellite’s menu).

This salad was DELICIOUS!  The shrimp was well-seasoned with a kick of spice.  I loved the combination of the creaminess of the avocado against the crunchiness of the veggies.

I would like to try other entrees at Satellite, but this salad was so good that I may just keep going with it!  I even went back the next week with my aunt.

So if anyone is down near Circle C and wants to grab lunch, I’m your gal.  :)
