Luling City Market Wins Foodie Award

This week’s edition of Newsweek sports a foodie porn cover hawking the winners of the 2012 Newsweek Foodie Awards.
The magazine polled top chefs for their lists of the best places to eat all over the world and the results are in. Central Texas’ venerable Luling City Market (633 Davis in Luling; 830/875-9019) is included in the list of 101 Best Places to Eat in North America and the old smoke house is certainly in some high cotton.
Chef Ford Fry of JCT Kitchen in Atlanta told Newsweek,“The best Texas barbecue- a little less than an hour south of Austin. Everyone says brisket is king in Texas, and, yes, it is, but in the Hill Country, beef sausage is king!”
We’ll forgive chef Fry for not realizing that Luling isn’t exactly in the Hill Country and appreciate his recognition of the Central Texas barbecue traditions just the same. vbw
