Austin Asian Food Trailers to Try While the Weather is Perfect

Spring has sprung in Texas and we’re now in the sweet spot where the air feels good on our skin. Our 100 degree weather is still at bay and the wildflowers are in full bloom. It’s the best time to eat outside! I’ve been taking advantage of this blissful season by exploring more food trailers. I noticed that most of my trailer experiences lately are of the Asian variety and thought I’d share some of my favorites!

1. DFG Noodles

DFK Noodles is mobile but they’re often parked at 203 Colorado St., which is just a hop and a skip from my day job. I can scratch my chronic noodle cravings with just a short walk from work. My favorite order from here is the Scholar Noodles. It has pork belly stir-fried with noodles, topped with an fried egg and crispy fried onions.

2. Deedee’s

1906 E. Cesar Chavez St., Austin, TX

I love Dee Dee’s food truck! Nestled next to La Barbecue, this food truck serves spicy street fare from North Thailand and it’s amazing. I went thrice within a few weeks and ordered the Pad Kaprow every single time. (You know when you are so into something at a restaurant and you can’t tear yourself away from it to try anything else?) I did order the pork skewers as an appetizer and enjoy the mango and sticky rice for dessert. I’ve heard everything on their menu is worth trying and I believe it!

3. Song La

411 W 23rd St, Austin, Texas 78705

Song La

So there’s a food trailer park right behind the University of Texas Co-op that makes me both nostalgic of my time as a student there and also jealous of the current Longhorn college generation. We did not have this surge of diverse and economical options that these young whippersnappers do now! Song La, one of the many trucks parked at this campus lot, serves authentic Taiwanese food. Pictured is the delicious braised pork ($7!), pork belly buns ($7), and the fried pork dish. I very much loved the braised pork. They also have a catering service!

4. Soursop

440 E St. Elmo Rd, Building G-2, Austin, Texas 78745

Photine from Soursop

I’m going to take all my out of town friends to Soursop. There’s so many awesome things about it. Everything I’ve tried here, I’d order again. Like the Pho-tine pictured foremost above. It’s a pho and poutine hybrid, that is not only creative, but also delectable. Pictured behind it is the luscious Pangang Eggplant. Also order the roti with curry dip! Actually, I recommend bringing friends and ordering everything. Soursop is located at St. Elmo’s Brewery. So you can enjoy this weather with good food and good beers. If you’re extra lucky, there might be some live music.

Over to you now! What other Asian food trailers should I try in Austin?
