One Trailer At A Time

Hey ya’ll! It is Thursday and I couldn’t be happier. Tomorrow I am flying off to Miami to go celebrate the wonderful thing known as Ultra Music Festival. In case ya’ll don’t know what it is, the festival is the largest dance/electronic music festival in the world. I can’t wait. Anyways for today’s post I thought I would write about something I love: food trailers (hopefully you aren’t sick of my posts on this topic). I can’t help it that Austin has a million trailers. My best friend from college was in town and we decided to go on a trailer adventure in order to get a good taste of Austin.

crepe-mille-1Back to an old favorite. South Congress is such a good area that has tons of food trailers, shopping, and weird little Austin things. I went here on my birthday weekend, had an amazing crepe in the rain, and decided that I must go back in order to try another one. I was excited because I started eating meat again, so I was going to get to try one of the many savory crepes that were available.

photo(3)Oh look at that beauty. We had the pork floss crepe. I think this one was even better than the last time I was there if that is even possible. It had authentic Chinese shredded pork and it was topped with thai chili sauce. An Asian crepe? Definitely the best way to go. The weather was perfect and so was the food. The pork was light like cotton candy and the sauce wasn’t too spicy. It also didn’t soak the crepe into a soggy mess, which I definitely appreciate. Yelp needs to get their stuff together because Crepe Mille definitely deserves at least 4 stars, not 3 and 1/2.

photo(4)Ya’ll know I have a huge weakness for snowballs. When we were walking up South Congress, I spotted this thing from a far away distance. Yes, my eyes are special and they locate things that I love in life. This trailer is new in Austin, so I thought I would test out the snowball quality of yet another stand.

photo(8)I decided to order the Cinderella. It was a mix of blue coconut and toasted coconut. As you saw in my last post, I love coconut. As soon as I saw on the menu that there was double the coconut then I knew I was going to get it. It was delicious. The only downside was that there was more blue coconut than the toasted coconut, so it sort of got overpowered. The other problem was that it became liquid very quickly, but I still thought it was tart and had a good flavor.

photo(5)While I munched on my snowcone, we waited for this interesting looking trailer to open up. They had an entire patio in front of their trailer! That was crazy cool. Since there was a cheese sign in front of the patio, we thought that the trailer probably sold something having to do with cheese or grilled cheeses. Obviously that meant we were going to check it out since cheese is one of our favorite food groups.

photo(6)Cheesey goodness. We decided to order the via 206. The sandwich had cheddar, gruyere, balsamic apricot fig jam, and it was on beer bread. I wish the sandwich was bigger. That was my only complaint. It was perfectly grilled, the cheese was melty and goey, and the fig jam provided a sweet taste to match the cheese flavors. I wish I lived down the street, so I could get myself a grilled cheese everyday.

capital-city-bakeryOf course I had to take my best friend to my best food truck: Capital City. Oh how I love these baked goods. Seriously best vegan treats in all of Austin. Maybe even the best desserts in Austin, but I love all desserts so that would be hard.

photoCapital city makes the cutest iced sugar cookies on the planet. When I saw this little cat in the bakery window, I just had to get it. It was delicious too. The cookie was soft and chewy. The icing was not too sweet and there wasn’t an excessive amount on top. I am definitely a fan of the cookies now (NOTHING is bad at this trailer, I swear).

photo(1)There were so many wonderful cupcakes in the window. However out of the corner of my eye, I saw her toasting some marshmallows in the back. Then I looked to the other side and saw a line of cupcakes waiting to be topped with the marshmallows. Hello, s’mores cupcakes. Of course I was going straight for that one. The cupcake was moist chocolatey goodness while the icing was a subtle sweet flavor. Not to mention the extra chocolate on top with the marshmallow. This cupcake was amazing. My friend ended up getting the blackberry lemon cupcake, which was also as delicious.

2The final stop was of course one of the greatest trailers in Austin: Gordough’s. My friend had heard a lot about this wonderful trailer not only from me, but from her family friend who lives in Houston. He told her that Gordough’s is a must! I wasn’t going to complain about going there because it is so good.

photo(7)This looks sort of like a pile of mush. It was definitely a super delicious pile of mush. We got the Sarah’s joy donut, which was chocolate and coconut. Pretty much like an mounds bar, but on a donut. The donut was also stuffed with coconut cream. Ummm YES. We ended up taking it to go because we were full at the time. We wanted to snack on it later though, so I guess that is why it looks like a pile of mush.

lA much prettier picture of the Sarah’s Joy donut. This is obviously not my picture because it is beautiful. All of my pictures look like a huge pile of junk. You can drool though and enjoy.

Have an awesome day and I’ll probably be on hiatus for a couple of days while I’m in Miami. Pretty much all I’ll be doing is dancing, raging, and sleeping. No time for blogging.

WIAW (More like What Trailers I Ate)

Hey ya’ll! It is my favorite day of the week. What I Ate Wednesday. Since this is my first one back, I’ve decided to make it extra special. It is going to be based around…drum roll….TRAILERS. Ya’ll are probably sick of my love for food trailers, but I think you are just going to have to get over it. Shout out to Jenn for allowing me to post my love for trailers on her blog on Wednesdays. Lets get this WIAW party started.

capital-city-bakeryOh you have seen this trailer on my blog before? That is right. I love this trailer more than anything. Capital City bakery has a sweet spot in my heart. Not only because of the delicious cupcakes they serve or the cinnamon rolls, but the brownies with various toppings are mind blowing.

DSC02712I know your stomach is probably growling out of control right now staring at these beauties. Let me tell you, that woman knows how to make some amazing brownies. Seriously. The two brownies in this box are raspberry and peanut butter. Both icings are decadent and different in their own way. I couldn’t even pick what brownie was my favorite because they were both so delicious, I couldn’t handle it.

DSC02710My brother had a champagne cupcake. It was also equally as delicious, but in a different way. The hint of champagne was not strong enough to get you tipsy from a cupcake, but it was just enough to have that sweet bubbly flavor. I’m glad I got to have a bite of it.

DSC01572Oh the peached tortilla. Heaven in a food trailer pretty much. I discovered this place once at a farmers market, so I was excited to have run into this amazing trailer again in my life. Their menu spans from sliders to various kinds of asian inspired tacos. Tacos? Yes, sign me up. Also sometimes they sell some baked goods from a small company. I was once blessed enough to have a banana fosters cake pop. It was amazing as it sounds.

DSC01571Their bahn mi taco could give Taco Deli a run for their money. Unlike the pork in that taco, the pork in this taco is shredded. You get more bang for your buck. You know how we Jews feel about that. Also the sauce on top of it is amazing. I love a good sauce. Typical to a bahn mi taco, there was shredded carrots, daikon, and some cilantro. It was delicious. I could definitely eat a few of these.

DSC01580Cool Haus, one of the more popular trailers that is around the US. I think there is one in New York City and Los Angeles. Who doesn’t want a custom ice cream sandwich? Especially when the flavors of ice cream are so wacky like balsamic fig, candied bacon, and spicy pineapple. Then you get it sandwiched in between cookies such as chocolate chunk pretzel or smore’s. If you don’t want that you are obviously a crazy person.

DSC01581 We ended up getting the balsamic fig and marscapone icecream sandwiched in between snickerdoodle cookies. It was actually really delicious, I’m not gonna lie. At first I was like what is my brother thinking? Those are some weird flavor combinations, but the cinnamon flavors the snickerdoodle went perfectly with the fig and marscapone cheese in the ice cream. It was pretty good. This isn’t a trailer I would seek out on my own, but if I passed by on a hot day then I would definitely stop in.

This is all I’m going to give you for today. Trust me I got a lot more food trailers up my sleeve, but ya’ll probably wouldn’t be able to handle it if I threw them all on you at once. I hope everyone has a good wednesday. Only one more day left of class! Thank god. School is really exhausting especially when it is your last semester (wooooo).
