If I had to pick between eating meals or desserts for the rest of my life, I would probably opt for the latter. Last week, I was introduced to churros for the first time, and my mind was blown.

churro

The best way to describe a churro is that its almost like a long donut stick covered in sugar and cinnamon. You can get simple traditional churros here, but the real treat is their specialty churros.

We decided to order one of everything on the menu, because why not? I don’t even know where to start. I think I am still on a sugar high. My favorite was the s’more topped churro- to put it simply, it left me wanting “s’more!” There is also a banana pudding offering, and a raspberry topped churro that were almost as good. Each of the options was unique and delicious, so depending on your taste buds, there’s surely one that will speak to you!

I first learned about the Skinny Limits trailer when my friend raved about them. They might be best known for their raw juice cleanses, but for those who don’t want to commit to an entire three to five day cleanse, you can pop in for a smoothie to see what they’re all about.

Their trailer is located in the new “Picnic” food park located on Barton Springs Road and they have quite an extensive menu. But if you can’t find one you like, feel free to create your own!

And so we meet again Trailer Tuesday. This week’s adventure took me to a Korean trailer at The Good Life Trailer Eatery. However, as of this week they’re going completely mobile, meaning their location will change daily, follow them on Facebook to check them out when they’re in your neighborhood.

I am hooked on the Mandoo, similar to fried dumplings, they’re absolutely delicious. I had one order but easily could have scarfed down another.

Korean Komfort Austin

 

I also tried the bibimbap. A mixed rice dish with mushrooms, carrots, cucumbers and more, topped with a fried egg and your choice of spicy pork, beef bulgogi, or veggie tofu. I went with the bulgogi, and it was the perfect combination of sweet and salty.

I highly recommend checking this place out, I’ll definitely be back to try the wings and the kimchi balls!

Chowing down on tacos may not help you beat the heat but when you couple it with a SUP session that does. The newest addition to the Epic SUP on Lakeshore is Electric Taco.

As the name suggests, get a taco. I would recommend the Al Pastor but am sure they’re all delicious. Here’s the real surprise on the menu, the hot dog. Random yes, but delicious and one of the most American things to eat on a hot summer day.

For the best experience, make an evening of it. Epic SUP is open from 8 am – 8 pm. They ‘re one of my favorite spots on the lake to SUP at as I love going in the cove by Fiesta Gardens. Here is more info on Epic SUP. http://365thingsaustin.com/2014/05/08/102-14-epicsup-grand-opening/

The owners behind another one of my  favorite trailers, Tapas Bravas recently opened Tiger Lily at the Midway Food Park.

Their Asian menu is inspired by their travels.  They’ve absolutely nailed their menu items. If you’re looking for some direction on what to order go with the street corn and a bubble tea. My friend who is bubble tea fanatic has sampled countless ones around town and this tops her list. While less of an expert, I have to agree, amazing. I would go back for the street corn alone, it’s just delicious. Next time I will be trying one of their dynamite rolls.

They’re pretty reasonability priced as you should get out of there for around ten dollars.

Several of their dishes are gluten free.

I woke up and thought it felt like it was Monday, then remembered it was actually Tuesday.

The event is rain or shine, but if the weather happens to get extremely treacherous, check their Facebook page for announcements.

I always feel like I’ve left Austin when I arrive The Domain. While it’s convenient to have so many shops in one place, it definitely doesn’t have much of an Austin vibe to it. Which is why I was surprised when I realized that they were home to a food trailer, Feed Store.

Margaritas, queso, breakfast tacos, and Frito pie are a few of the things I consider myself to know pretty well. And as someone who rarely cooks, I can dish out a mean frito pie myself (the inspiration came to me after eating the late trailer, SoCo ToGo frito pie 4 days in row).

Now I’m constantly comparing Frito pies around town to my own recipe, and Feed Store’s stacks up quite well. For some reason my order was lacking the ‘avocado salad’ that was described on the menu, but it still passed the test.

photo 3-14

If frito pie isn’t your thing, their menu offers lots of variety. They have items such as a local chicken and kielbasa sausage gumbo, mac & cheese, a fried chicken po’ boy, and burgers.

Next time you’re at the Domain give it a try.

Lastly, a very happy birthday to my dad! I Love you.
