Austin is a great eating city, well-beyond BBQ. This was on full display at the Food Truck parking lot, just south of the Convention Center, across Chavez street. I had the pleasure of sampling some amazing chicken bulgogi and kimchee tacos that I enjoyed immensely.
Added bonus: I think this is the only place where you are highly likely to, like me, stand in line alongside a trio of food bloggers from Pittsburg who were making a point of sampling the local wares.
I also got to see a little bit of Austin that the SXSW crowd doesn’t usually see. I met up with my friend Kit and his girlfriend at a restaurant in North Austin called Olive & June. it was a great place to partake in an outstanding assortment of antipasto and craft cocktails.
We followed that up with ice cream from Lick, a n ice cream shop with house-made, locally-sourced ice cream in some pretty wild favors like carrot with tarragon or beet with mint. It was fantastic!
