Tasty Up Trailer Tour

Oh wow, this was so much fun! I wish I had more stomach room to have enjoyed a few more trailers, but Matt and I only made it to 2 places. First off, we started at La Boite.

We grabbed nametags and free french press coffee. That was going to be the plan, then walk over to Texas Cuban. Well, I saw these and stopped dead in my tracks.

Oh so lovely! I had to have them. Sure enough, we purchased these little morsels, sat down on the grass and watched people and their cute kids play. The line for Texas Cuban began to grow, with more and more of a crowd coming and no movement in the line. It was time to move on.

Back to South 1st we went...Never had Izzoz tacos before, so we parked across the street and made our way over. They had a pretty good line of people and we looked across the lot at Austin Daily Press. No one was there. Walked over, never been to ADP before, and browsed the menu. Fried bologna sandwich?? Hell YES!

A certain someone looks excited!

Vegan tortilla soup. It was hot and delicious!

Sandwiches wrapped in the Onion. Could you ask for anything cooler?

This baby had so much mustard in it. If you are a fan of the yellow stuff and fried bologna, stop what you are doing and get this sandwich.

I can't remember what Matt had, something Italian I believe. I was lucky enough to get a bite in. It was excellent. We didn't make it out to The Liberty afterwards. I was really dying to try East Side Kings. You are on my list time.

I hope to see more of this event in the future. It was a fantastic idea and I hope all the trailers that participated made a lot of money and new business! Count me in for the next round.

I saw Daily Press when we went to Izzoz's for b’fast tacos and their menu was appealing! When we first pulled into the parking lot, I thought Daily Press was a coffee place ;)

Once it dries out and warms up, we'll have to do our own little Trailer Tour!

Weren't those macarons to DIE for? I haven't tried any of the flavors you got, though...can never bring myself to stray from the salted caramel.
