Tipsters, readers, friends, and family of Eater Austin always want to know: Where should I eat right now? What are the buzziest new restaurants? What haven't I heard of? What's everyone talking about?

To answer those questions, behold the 53rd edition of the Eater Austin Heatmap, updated monthly to reflect the city’s freshest restaurants within the past six months. November brings Blue Cat Cafe, Juniper, Voodoo Doughnut, and Wu Chow. To see which places used to be on the list, visit the archive.

Please note that the numbers are geographic; not rankings.

1 Bullfight

For Parkside Project’s newest restaurant, chef Shawn Cirkiel decided to focus on Spain with tapas in Hyde Park. The array of cured meats and cheese, with classic dishes like the tortillas and croquettes all pair well with the Spanish wine list.

Soup dumplings are finally here with the debut of Wu Chow from the Swift’s Attic team. The dinner menu features modern Chinese dishes like Sichuan braised eggplant, Shanghai rice cakes, wontons. The bar also serves a tiki-style cocktail menu. Lunch and dim sum service isn’t quite available right now, but it’s coming soon.

The iconic Portland doughnut shop now has an Austin outpost, which dishes out the famed crazy sweet concoctions like the voodoo doll. The city also gets its very own doughnut: the Longhorn Creme.

6 Blue Cat Cafe

Cats, cats, and more cats can be found over at Austin’s very first cat cafe, which opened this month after a successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year. Work, play, and potentially adopt a cat inside the cafe, and order food and coffee from the vegan food truck parked right outside.
