It’s Food Truck Season!

Some people get excited about the other Fall F word season, not me (although I did send out UT Longhorn football schedule magnets to my clients this year)

For me, the change in weather means I can finally hit some of my fave food trucks, and discover some new ones, without melting to a puddle under the extreme Austin sun, or killing the environment sitting in my running car, or huddling in the tiny patch of shade the truck awning may make if I’m lucky.

It’s hard to keep up with all the new ones cropping up here and there, and personally of course I only really care about the ones with lots of worthy vegan options, or complete vegan ones like BBQ Revolution, Vegan Nom and Pulse Vegan.

One trend i’m seeing is some really cool well organized food parks, with a nice variety of trucks, a cute name and sometimes even events. Oh and PARKING is a huge plus! Here are a few around town that you might want to partake while the weather is accomodating!

Mueller Trailer Eats

This one is so great because it’s a hub for the Mueller community and surrounding areas, a great meeting place with a good variety. I have really only tried the Whole Foods Market’s Food Truck in the past and I must say their Chick Pea Fries are pretty jaw dropping

The Midway Food Park

This is in such a great location for so many areas – 360 between Barton Creek Mall and Westlake Drive and has a regular music calendar with great bands.

Foodwise a lot of variety, I want to check out Royal Roots Juices for their organic fresh juice, Hand Helds has a vegan slider, and Cool Haus almost always has a vegan ice cream sandwich option!

The Picnic on Barton Springs

I haven’t had a chance to check this one out either yet, and they don’t have a full website to see vendors but I can see they have a Kebabalicous which i love for hummus & falafel, a Skinny Limit’s truck that has amazing smoothies & juices, a good old Hey Cupcake truck and The Mighty Cone which was a huge favorite at the now defunct South Congress Food Court

South First Food Court

This is where Pulse Vegan is located! nuff said 🙂 – they also have a killer snow cone place and an home cooking style Italian truck plus more

and if you really like an event –  every month on the last Tuesday is the epic Trailer Food Tuesday at the long center! The perfect oportunity to try out an array of Austin’s best food trucks, listen to great music, get a work out from one of the sponsors and mingle with your fellow Austinites. It’s such a fun time! The next one is October 28th! See you there

I’d love to know your picks for fave food trucks – please comment below!
