Tasty Tuesdays: Best Austin Food Trailers at 2 p.m.

Since we’re moving up by three hours each week on this Tasty Tuesdays series on “Best Austin Food Trailers.” We now move to 2 p.m. — skipping over the most traditional hours for lunch.
However, think about what you might be doing at 2 p.m. — either on the weekend or during the week — and the kind of snack or meal you might enjoy at that time. I know that I often forget to eat lunch until 2 — or that’s the time I crave some sort of dessert after …

Tasty Tuesdays: Best Brunch Food Trailers

Today’s Tasty Tuesdays question should be a lot easier than last week when I asked you to name your favorite Austin Food Trailers to visit at 8 a.m. One of the funnier responses was from Michelle of Foodie is the New Forty, who wrote, “At 8:00 a.m., whatever food trailer happens to be in my dreams would be my favorite!”
This week, I’d love to know what your favorite food trailer is at 11 a.m. — either during the week or on the weekend — and why.

I’m thinking weekends in my …

So I’ve made the executive decision as chief tasting officer over here at Tasty Touring, Inc., to devote the next month and a half of Tasty Tuesdays to the best of Austin food trailers.

To my mind, the best way to do this is by time …

Austin Food Trailer takes Credit on iPad

Last week, I wrote a post on a blog I contribute to at work called “Square: POS in the Palm of your Hand.” Square was created by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey (@jack), and it allows anyone to easily and cheaply take payment by credit card.
Jae Kim, owner of an Austin mobile food trailer, Chi’Lantro BBQ, began accepting credit cards from customers when he became one of the first local businesses to use Square in early May. When I asked him why he decided to use Square, he said:

Royito’s: Another Austin Food Trailer, Another Cranky Post

I know I shouldn’t do this but I cannot resist poking a little fun at Royito’s, the new food trailer opening on W. 6th Street just East of Lamar.
The trailer is having a soft opening this week and word is that GSD&M Idea City co-founder Roy Spence himself is handing out free breakfast tacos and jars of his spicy sauce from the airstream through Friday of this week from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. (or until they run out).
I stopped by today on my way back to the office from …
