Welcome ladies and gents to a new weekly series called Austin Food Truck Friday! There seems to be a food theme ’round these parts. I figure, if I’m going out to eat it anyway, I should probably share where to eat in Austin. My hometown is rife with good eatin’.
The Austin Chronicle recently put out a “Food Truck Challenge” and without thinking, Shaun and I gladly accepted. That and its a great excuse to try new things around town. With our trusty calendar below, we will be marking off our experiences one by one, with a review of said trucks. There is a modern food renaissance happening in Austin. Young, hip chefs are creating gourmet food at an affordable price – all with the understanding that great food should be accessible to everyone.
Ever hear of Top Chef Paul Qui? Not only did he make Uchi a two week wait time affair, but brought his magic to food trucks via East Side Kings. Be prepared to wait during the weekends – his food trucks are hoppin’. That is the type of food I’m talkin’ about! (And I wonder why my taste buds are spoiled/ruined.) Going out to eat in Austin is an event.
I’m hoping I don’t gain a gazillion pounds trying to take this on – but in the end I’m doing it for YOU, fair reader! *cough* I swear. The only reason… *mumble mumble*
What would you like to see covered in these? Price? Location? Type? Star reviews?
