Blown Away by The Peached Tortilla

Three months ago I had my first experience with The Peached Tortilla.  At the time I was beyond impressed with the BBQ Brisket slider, so-so on the Chicken Satay taco, and undecided on the Banh Mi taco.  Shortly after my first visit, Ev and I checked them out again when the truck visited our hood for the Flying Saucer Beer Festival.  The food itself is reason enough to keep you coming back, but that’s not what blew me away this time.

Florida Here I Come

Well, kids, the soon-to-be missus and I are heading down over east to Florida for the big day.  It’s been a long time since that interrogatory run, and we couldn’t be more excited for December 4th to get here!  It’s going to be a jam-packed week full of last-minute planning, prepping, and partying.  Sprinkled in between the mayhem (for me at least) will be sleeping, running, and eating.  In second-to-last penultimate minute planning, Ev and I skeptically scoped out the SoFla food cart scene in case we do, in fact, find time to eat.  Much to our pleasant surprise, it appears to be fairly mobile-eatery abundant.

Chi’Lantro BBQ – Rounds 2, 3, and 4

I started this post right after my second trip to Chi’Lantro and I’ve been 2 more times since.  Rather than write three separate posts for my favorite Korean-Mexican food truck (and yes, there’s more than one in Austin), I thought I’d spare you and combine them all into one superpost.  Each visit showcased a new menu item with some good and bad to each, so keeping reading to find out what you should get when you try ’em out.

The Peached Tortilla

A relative new kid on the block, The Peached Tortilla really has its act together.  Delicious food can only get you so far, but you also need to let your people know where to find you.  This truck is a beast on the social scene keeping their fans updated where they are and when they’ll be there.  But we can’t downplay the food.  Like Chi’Lantro BBQ, The Peached Tortilla is a fusion of flavors, though a bit more subtle.

Chi’Lantro BBQ

Being relegated to North Austin for work has its pros and cons.  The biggest pro is that I drive against traffic to and from work, so I’m rarely caught in any bumper-to-bumper frustration during my commute.  The downside of working in the great white north a few miles from downtown is the lack of food trucks frequenting the area (we need to eat delicious food from mobile kitchens too, you know!).  Anyhow, thanks to a socially savvy creator of Korean-Mexican fusion, I was able to partake in some delicious and creative fare without having to cross any zip codes.

Austin City Limits

Austin City Limits, a three-day music festival featuring 130 bands on 8 stages, comes to Austin every year.  You know what that fails to mention?  The copious amounts food.  We’re not talking the standard burger or pizza, though there was plenty of that.  Over the three days we hit up sixteen food vendors in and around the concert.  Warning: This post might get a little long, so I’ll try to only touch on the highlights…
