Arepitas – Harker Heights, Texas

We were looking for pizza, but ended up with an unexpected and delicious Venezuelan dinner. We had never heard of arepa or arepita, but after dinner that night, we were hooked. The restaurant is called Arepitas, in Harker Heights, Texas, and this place is a keeper.

We walked into what had been our favorite pizza restaurant. We noticed that the sign was missing from the storefront, but two men were working on ladders and we figured they were remodeling and had temporarily taken the sign down.

Bella Sera – Copperas Cove, Texas

Many of us go to a restaurant expecting, or at least hoping for a spectacular meal. I have been fortunate to have experienced this at several places, and Bella Sera in Copperas Cove, Texas, provided one recently. It was nothing fancy, but it was the best lunch I've had in recent memory – their exceptional Stromboli.

Down Unda Trading Post – Lampasas, Texas

Who would have thought that a pleasant forty-mile drive through the Texas countryside would lead to – Australia? Well, not exactly, but such a trip will give you a nice taste of the country 'down under.'

The 'Down Unda Trading Post', located on US Highway 281, sixteen miles north of Lampasas, Texas, provides a tasty glimpse of Australian food, including Vega Mite, Anzac biscuits, Australian Chocolate, and meat pies. It was the meat pies we were interested in, so we set out on a warm, sunny Spring day in search of this unlikely Aussie outpost.
