Happy SXSW! The day has finally arrived. There is so much that I love about this week in Austin, everything from the delicious eats to the seemingly unlimited things to do.
For those that are on a mission to find the bets eats around SXSW, join us self guided ATX FoodCrawl. We’ve mapped out the best places to eat and if you instagram your food, you can be entered to win cool prizes. The Grand Prize is a set of tickets to the Food & Wine Festival.
Another favorite thing about SXSW is South Bites. South Bites is a one stop shop for trailer food during SXSW. Aside from their stellar location (the parking lot at the end of Rainey), they also have some amazing places to grab a bite.
Here’s a rundown of my top picks from South Bites:
Burro Cheese. It’s a local Austinite and pro BMXer Aaron Ross’ latest project, and it’s downright amazing. They take grilled cheese to an entirely new level.
Chi’lantro. They just took first place in Austin’s Mobile Food Throw Down, and they’re legendary among Austinites. Try the ‘Kimichi Fries.’
East Side King. Post Top Chef, Paul Qui became a household name. His original project with friend and Uchi co-worker Moto Utsunomiya, was the trailer East Side King. Local Austinites know to go here to enjoy his delicious creations at a fraction of the price of his latest restaurant, Qui.
Garbo’s: the lobster is shipped in fresh everyday making for one heck of a Lobster roll.
