My KUTX: Austin Food Critic Matthew Odam

We love food here in Austin (duh). With some new barbeque/ramen/burger/pizza/kimchi joint opening seemingly every week, you need somebody to help sort the mouth-watering meals from the meh. Good thing Austin-American Statesman restaurant critic Matthew Odam is on the case: this week sees the release of his annual eating guide, a countdown of the best fifty restaurants in Austin. He’s also the guest DJ on My KUTX, spinning songs that help him write, think, and eat delicious meals for a living. Hear Matthew Odam’s My KUTX on Saturday, October 27 at 6 p.m. or anytime at the bottom of the page.
