Austin Restaurant Week Fall 2010: 1886 Cafe and Bakery

I'll start by saying that this was the most disappointing meal in Austin of 2010.  I had such high hopes for the Kobe beef haute dogs that the 1886 Cafe & Bakery was offering during restaurant week.  I was even impressed when they brought out TWO Kobe beef dogs on my plate!  Unfortunately, I couldn't even finish one dog, and it wasn't because of the huge portion...It was absolutely tasteless.  They might as well have given me one crappy dog, and I would've been happier.  Sure, the baked beans were tasty, but I did not come here for beans.  I came here for my entree.  I tried very hard to at least finish one hot dog, but the flavorless dog coupled with the powerful (not in a good way) red cabbage made it impossible for me to eat.

The chocolate cake was really delicious, but it was not worth the torture I had to endure with the nasty kobe beef dog.
