Eat St. Rocking the Jalopy

Last Tuesday Food Network’s Eat St. came to Austin to kickoff their five-trucks-in-five-days profile of Austin’s mobile food scene.  They’re here filming for Season 2 of their show, after having already profiled ChiLantro BBQ and Lucky J’s last year for Season 1.  Their first stop was at the Jalopy Rotisserie and Press, profiling Nic, his truck, and his delicious food.  Lucky for me I was able to swing by and even make an on-camera appearance!

Will Run To Eat…Literally

We have a lot of fun here on this blog with wordplay, double entendre, and of course, puns.  You’d be hard-pressed to find a blog post without at least a little implied double meaning.  As proof, Google finds 22 mentions of the word “pun” in my blog (not counting the 3 in this post)!  What we’re celebrating today, however, is the literal nature of the blog’s name.  The real intersection where running meats meets eating.

Short Bus Subs

Roaming the streets in their diminutive school bus, Short Bus Subs has grown quite a following in a relatively short amount of time (enough to rev up a second bus).  Offering a variety of sub sandwiches on their fresh baked bread has filled a big hole in the Austin food truck scene.  I didn’t realize how much I was missing a warm, toasty sandwich until Short Bus Subs brought it to my attention.

Turf N Surf Po’ Boy

The day after the San Antonio Marathon, recovery was my number one priority, so what better way to recover than hit up an untested food cart?  Colin smartly stayed in Austin an extra day to recover too, so he joined me as we picked up Ev from work for lunch downtown.  After hyping up Chi’Lantro BBQ (a lot), they graced us with an atypical Monday lunch opening.  Of course I’m always down for a Korean-Mexican fusion, but this time I wanted to go with something I can’t regularly get.  And what might that be?  A fried catfish po’ boy of course!

Jalopy Rotisserie and Press – Back to Basics

Sometimes the simpler things are, the better.  You know, “less is more” and all that.  Well I put that to the test on my second visit to The Jalopy Rotisserie and Press.  If you remember, last time I tried the molé and Ev went with the son hong, both of which were very tasty and paved the way for a second visit.  This time I figured I’d dig into the Jalopy’s roots with a simpler option: The Original.

Lucky’s Puccias

So it’s clear who the runner, blogger, maniac, over-indulger is in the family. But let’s get serious here, I do my fair share of eating too! I also have the glorious advantage of working downtown, affording me the opportunity to enjoy Austin’s fabulous lunchtime food trucks. I have to admit though, I don’t tend to venture too far from the office during the work day. Plus, working directly across the street from Whole Foods (the Whole Foods, flagship style) essentially means that my cafeteria is a natural food mecca. But this week I trekked the mere block and a half to Lucky’s Puccias.

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…
