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!

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.

Jalopy Rotisserie and Press

While Ev was out of town, I went on a bit of a food truck rampage, so it was only fitting that we visited another meal on wheels when she got back to Austin.  Our truck of choice?  The Jalopy Rotisserie and Press.  Their specialty?  Rotisserie chicken sandwiches.
