OUT OF THE BOX: AUSTIN’S FOOD TRAILER MOVEMENT
While fancy restaurants are popping up all over Austin, there is another emerging trend for foodies in town: food trailers. This unique dining experience is a cheap, quick, and— most importantly—tasty way to sample some of Austin’s best cuisines. It’s a commitment to make reservations and dine at a new Mediterranean restaurant and splurge on drinks, tax, and tip. Sampling a falafel on your lunch break at a new food trailer on Sixth Street is a no-brainer.
From BBQ to burgers to coffee and vegan munchies, Austin’s food trailers are an efficient way to serve the city’s hungry denizens and expose them to new foods. Beginning last year, the best and newest food trailers were highlighted at Austin’s Gypsy Picnic, where walkers-by could rapidly sample delectable dishes from dozens of trailers.
