Summer has begun! Trailer Food Tuesdays are Back

Yesterday after work, Andrew & I met up at The Long Center & celebrated an ordinary Tuesday by stuffing our faces with Austin trailer food goodness, all while taking in the Austin skyline from a grassy hill & listening to Rosie & the Ramblers.  The weather was almost perfect, not too hot & a little breezy.  It was a great evening to kick off Trailer Food Tuesdays.

If you live in Austin & haven't been to Trailer Food Tuesdays, you need to get on it!  On the last Tuesday of each month from April through October you can find a variety of local food trucks, live music & all kinds of fun set on the back drop of one of the best views in town.

We sampled delectable dishes from Tapas Bravas, Gonzo, Burro Cheese Kitchen & The Peached Tortilla.  Everything we tried was delicious!



We started out with the Goat Cheese Peppers from Tapas Bravas.  If I hadn't been worried about keeping room in my tummy for other treats, I would've eaten both peppers by myself.  I loved that these peppers didn't have a lot of heat (I'm kind of a spicy wimp!) and the creamy goat cheese, honey & pine nut mixture they were filled with was a wonderful combination of sweet & savory.  



Next up, we had our first of two pork entrees, the Pig Roast Sandwich from Gonzo.  This sammy was packed with flavor...& so much moist Hawaiian pulled pork it dripped over our hands.  Usually not a bad sign in my book.  Served on Texas toast & topped with provolone, carrot slaw, brown mustard & sweet chile chipotle dressing this sandwich had a great mix of textures that kept me eating until the juicy sticky fingered end.



After a break to passers by & listen to the band, Andrew & I each took $10 & went off in different directions to see what looked good.

Andrew came back with the perfectly grilled, ooey, gooey Via 206 from Burro Cheese Kitchen.  Stuffed with aged cheddar, gouda & balsamic apricot fig jam, this sandwich was amazing & just what this cheese lover dreams about.  The sweet punch of jam with the melty goodness of the cheddar & gouda along with the just-crunchy-enough sourdough bread was heaven.



I chose to brave the long line at The Peached Tortilla.  And oh my, it was totally worth it. (As I had expected.)  I got us each a banh-mi taco & I think, just by a landslide, this was my favorite of the night. The pork was perfectly paired with cool, crunchy veggies & a slightly spicy sriracha mayo that I could probably eat by the gallon.  It was a tasty ending to our food adventure.
