A Few Favorite Food Trucks for Your Inner Foodie
Hump day isn’t the only thing to celebrate on Wednesdays; it’s also the day of our weekly Bike and Chew tours. These tours incorporate three different eatery stops to accompany the beer flights from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Here’s a list of some of our favorite Austin food trucks.:
La 1 Cajun and Creole
A regular stop on our Bike and Chew tour is La 1 Cajun and Creole. As they say on their website it is “damn good Cajun and creole food in Austin.” With a menu full of traditional Louisiana style food from po boys to crawfish to beignets, there’s a variety of authentic Cajun style food. Although I recommend the roast beef po boy with gravy, you really can’t go wrong with anything you pick!
East Side King
An Asian-fusion style truck run by Top Chef Winner Paul Qui, East Side King is hard to miss with its brightly painted trailers. They have a variety of meshi (a Japanese rice dish) with chicken, pork, fish and even a veggie option and their beet home fries are a definite must-try. With multiple locations around town, ESK is food truck royalty in Austin and well worth a visit.
Veracruz All Natural and/or Pueblo Viejo
Anyone in Austin will tell you that tacos are a main staple in Texas eating. If we wanted to, we could write a list of taco trucks to fill this page. Luckily our two favorites are only a block away from each other on Ceasar Chavez st. So if one line is too long, simply go to the other, because you won't be dissapointed. Both Veracruz All Natural and Pueblo Viejo features some of the best around. With homemade ingrediants and hot sauce, their authentic Mexican cuisine features a breakfast and lunch menu sure to satisfy your taste buds and leave you wanting to order a few tacos to-go.
Although they serve a variety of food such as salads, nachos and po boys, Gourdoughs is best known for its donuts. From the Ring of Fire, with chipotle infused brownie batter, to the Flying Pig with bacon icing, you’re sure to find a unique combination of pasties like you’ve never seen before.
While not an actual food truck, we would be remiss to not mention Prohibition Creamery, another regular stop on our Bike and Chew tour. Seriously, with alcohol infused ice cream, you can’t go wrong. With a variety of boozy flavors like pineapple tequila sorbet and whiskey chocolate, there’s something for everyone. Customers can choose from a mix of toppings or pair their treat with a tasty cockatil. Prohibition Creamery also offers a non-alcoholic menu as well.
Hot Mess serves locally grown, organic produce, true to Austin’s community culture. From burgers to tacos, to unique spicy fireballs and fries smothered in cheesy, baconey goodness, this truck caters to all pallets. With a five-star rating on Google, you will not want to miss tasting these flavorful creations. You can find Hot Mess at Zilker Brewery, 1701 East 6th St., or at Parlor and Yard, 601 West 6th St.
