Short rib sliders and beer? Mussels and a martini? Or just a nice flight of wine. Lots of great choices...and all very inexpensive. Plus here you can have your beer and cake too!
Lets enjoy appetizer and drink specials at the Cakeball Bar and Kitchen in the Domain. They gained their fame - and rightfully so - from their magnificient cakeballs; however, now their great reputation spreads to their appetizers and main entrees...and their creative cocktails. Join us for some fun and food. What a better way to wind down the week-end then Sunday Happy Hour when traffic is not an option.
From yelp -
Our expectations were high, and Austin Cake Ball delivered. We went the second night of its opening, and enjoyed every morsel/sip of what we ordered. We were pleasantly surprised to learn happy hour is Monday through Saturday, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Happy hour includes $3 local beers, $5 glasses of wine, $6 craft cocktails, and $1 off most small plates.
I ordered the Candy Girl cocktail ($6 on hh; $9 otherwise) and my husband ordered the Lost Gold IPA ($3 on hh; $4.50 otherwise) and we both thoroughly enjoyed our choices - so much so, we ordered another round. For an appetizer, we ordered the five count truffle deviled eggs with roasted red pepper aioli. Yeah, truffle makes everything better. These eggs were totally delectable.
For entrees, I ordered the smoked salmon tartine ($10) - shaved smoked salmon, lemon-zested cream cheese, and fried capers. My husband chose the beef and bleu (also $10) - roast beef, bleu cheese, caramelized onions, and horseradish cream. Mine was light yet filling. You can choose either a side salad or sweet potato chips. We both chose the sweet potato chips, which were super yum. His was a bit bready if you like that sort of thing, but mine was perfection. (We said next time I'd choose the grilled cheese and bacon, and he'd choose what I ordered - the smoked salmon tartine.)
We couldn't leave without trying a cake ball. We shared a dark chocolate orange cake ball, and it was amazing. The only other cake ball I have had (at Taste Austin) was the mojito flavor, which was also out of this world.
I have very high hopes for Austin Cake Ball Kitchen & Bar. It's in a good location, and has what Viva Chocolato didn't have - instant name recognition and respect. I can envision us going to Austin Cake Ball Kitchen & Bar for many happy hours in the months to come. Excellent service; tremendous food; you just can't go wrong here.
