LIL’ NOOKIES | AUSTIN & OKLAHOMA CITY
When you think of a taco shop, you don’t normally think of chocolate chip cookies. That’s why these cookies aren’t normal. The Lil’ Nookies at Torchy’s Tacos are bite-sized balls of dough deep fried in a delicious batter. They blew my mind! They came out warm, gooey and oozing with chocolate. That was the first time I’d had fried cookie dough balls, and it certainly won’t be the last.
WHILE YOU’RE THERE
Torchy’s is known for its unique tacos, so you can’t go wrong with any of them. Their sides are also crazy good. Just take a look at the photo - I ordered everything! Their queso and refried black beans are two of my favorites. And of course, they pair well with the Lil’ Nookies.
THE COOKIE TOUR STOP
I visited their location on South Congress in Austin, but lucky for you, they have locations across Texas and Oklahoma. If you do find yourself in Austin, take a walk down South Congress. There are lots of stores that are truly one-of-a-kind where you can find that perfect souvenir to remind you to “Keep Austin Weird.”
