Arancini Italian Comfort Food Trailer

Last weekend, Adam and I decided to visit Arancini, an Italian comfort food trailer on S. 1st and Live Oak. Arancini shares space with Fried Green Tomato, another trailer serving the eponymous menu item, sandwiches, and a refreshing gazpacho and crab ceviche that they brought over for us to taste.

While we waited for our food, Adam poured wine into our glasses (all BYO), and caught up on his Twitter reading. I caught a shot of him “in the wild” on Arancini’s patio.

Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches

If you’re at ACL today, I recommend keeping an eye out for Coolhaus Ice Cream Truck on Barton Springs Road — probably at Thom’s Market. According to their Twitter feed, they have been camped out there all weekend serving up delicious ice cream sandwiches to the music loving masses.

The Austin Coolhaus truck is the second location nationwide, the first is in L.A. According to New York Street Food, they will be bringing Coolhaus to New York City in 2011.
Coolhaus is an architectural dessert miracle with a wonderful …
