Yes, in general it’s a good decision as an Asian. Thanks for checking.

Wouldn't ask this in the nyc bowl tbh 😂

Houston and Dallas are much more Asian.

Depends on type of Asian food. East Asian food is much better in NY. South/Southeast Asian food better in Texas.

I can't speak to specifics, but I've had two friends who have (they are Asian, I am not) and both have hated it. Both are from the NY area though

🙄 that’s because people in other areas live in smaller more homogeneous bubbles

Austin is not really diverse, very heavily white and Hispanic and is pretty overpriced for what you get tbh. Houston/DFW on the other hand are quite diverse and have lots of Asian people, food, and grocery stores. Houston is a little better blended across the metro while there are certain suburbs in DFW with a much higher Asian population than others (Plano, Frisco, Carrollton).

We need more data than that. It depends heavily on what you're looking for in life.

Everyone and their dog just moved to Austin, so prices have gone way up and there may be some growing pains as the city adjusts. It is also, obviously, a much smaller and hotter place than NYC, you will have to get a car, etc. It’s actually really not that difficult to get close to nature in NYC, but if you want an acre of land to yourself then yes Austin may make it easier to obtain that. QOL is highly subjective because of course it depends on what exactly you value, and how much. But agree with just going and spending a week — or even 2 or 3 — and seeing what you think.

Maybe not Austin but DFW and Houston are good. Lots of Asians, people are nice and Asian food is amazing there. I've only visited for work though.
