Trailer eateries are now and Austin, Texas staple. You can find almost anything you want to eat on any street corner with the many trailer eateries in Austin!

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.

Last month was the first ‘Trailer Tuesday’ of the season at the Long Center. This is a great opportunity to try a variety of trailers all in one easy location. They’ll also have live music, and Camp Gladiator will be hosting a free workout at 6:30. If you want to participate, be sure to bring a mat and water.

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.

photo 2-29

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.

Kerlin BBQ is one of those trailers that I’ve been hearing about for a while. I didn’t even realize it was conveniently located next to one of my favorite taco joints, Veracruz All Natural.

Kerlin BBQ Austin

They offer delicious Texas BBQ and some tasty sides as well. I went with the pork ribs, some not-too-fatty brisket and some pulled pork shoulder; paired with a side of beans and potato salad.

In my experience, BBQ joints can rarely pull off both great brisket and pulled pork. The latter is somewhat less prevalent on the Texas BBQ scene, but the folks at Kerlin have hit a home-run. The ribs are also perfect. Moist, but not falling off the bone, and with the perfect amount of meatiness to the tooth.

This place is definitely in my top five in Austin, and a great alternative if you’re looking to dodge the Franklin/ la Barbecue lines.

Hours: Wednesday – Sunday 11 am – 3 pm or until SOLD OUT

Paul Qui is at it again, his newest project being the East Side Kings behind Wonderland (the old Cheer Up Charlie’s).

photo 1-30

The menu is similar in Asian style to the other East Side Kings, but with a heavier Thai accent. Here’s a run down on what I think you should order:

Start with the grilled bread with peanut curry sauce. I personally could have gone back for a second baguette. The baguette is fresh from Easy Tiger’s bakery, and the curry sauce is just heavenly. The Waterfall Pork and Thai-Kun Fried chicken were equally delicious, both a tad spicy, but delicious still.

As an added bonus Paul Qui and Moto (chefs/owners) were there going over the menu during my visit. I swear the food tastes a little better when they’re present, and It’s just cool to see them so hands on.

Hours:

Last weekend the much anticipated Trailer Eatery park opened on Barton Springs Road bringing together some of my favorite trailers all in one location!

photo-141

This is a state of the art trailer food eatery if I have ever seen one. They have plenty of parking, bathrooms, two massive canopies to provide shade.

Here’s a rundown to some of the trailer’s that are now calling The Picnic home:

Hey! You Gonna Eat or What – they make some of the meanest sammies in town. Do you self a favor and get the Monte Cristo, it will change your life.

monte-cristo-hey-you-gonna-eat-or-what

The Mighty Cone – This was the brainchild of Hudson’s on the Bend owners back in 2002 when ACL contacted them about participating in the festival’s food court. In 2009 demand for the fine cuisine served in cones was at all time high so they launched the Mighty Cone trailer and its been a cult classic ever since.

mighty-cone

Hey Cupcake – I can’t get enough of the John Lemon or Michael Jackson cupcakes.

Tapas Bravas –The best way to describe the food is authentic, fresh, and flavorful. Their meatballs may have been the best meatballs that I have ever eaten in my entire life.  The Albondigas are also a must try.

Ms. P’s Electric Cock – solid Fried Chicken.

Tuft & Surf Po – Boys – Amazing po-boys! They’re servings are massive and delicious.

The Seedling truck and Skinny Limits are also in the mix.

As you can see there are more than enough options for you to feast on while you picnic.

Open Daily: 11 am – 9 pm

1720 Barton Springs Road

You know what Austin is missing? A solid food trailer scene. I mean sure, you can get a decent taco, but what about a pancake in a cup? Don’t worry though, thanks to British Airline’s new non-stop to London from Austin, you can be double-fisting pancakes by the cup in just a few short hours.

photo 1-29

Mr. Pancake makes pancakes for all palates. They come sweet and/or savory, and they aren’t your traditional pancakes, as they’re served in a cup! They’re also much thinner than you’d imagine. I highly recommend the pancake with Nutella.
