Weekend Cooking- Super Bowl Sunday Food Trucks

My husband had a conference at the Hyatt Regency Resort outside of Austin Texas last week, which meant that we were away for the Super Bowl.

The conference hosted a Super Bowl party in the front courtyard of the resort, and they brought in four popular Austin food trucks for the event. It was a festive evening, and we were excited to try the food trucks.

We started with a BBQ Brisket Taco from Peached Tortilla.  It's a Southern dry rub brisket with a creamy apple slaw and peach barbeque sauce. It was delicious, easily the best food of the evening. The creamy apple slaw had just the right blend of sweet and tangy, and the peach sauce rounded out the flavors so well.  The Peached Tortilla website is here.

BBQ Taco
ALC Steaks On Tour food truck served up sliced NY strip steak with frites. They had a long line, and the steak frites was pretty good. I liked the seasoning on the steak, and a homemade barbeque sauce came with it. ALC Steaks On Tour website is here.

Burro Cheese Kitchen served up grilled cheese sandwiches. They offered two sandwiches- the Waylon & Willie which had aged cheddar, gouda, caramelized onions, pepperocini and a spicy bourbon maple sauce, and the one I chose, the Via 206, which had cheddar, gouda and a balsamic fig jam on sourdough bread. It was good, but grilled cheese really needs to made to order or else the cheese tends to congeal. Burro Cheese Kitchen's website is here.

Amy's Ice Creams truck
For dessert, Amy's Ice Creams served up homemade ice cream. I chose the Belgian Chocolate with Heath's candy pieces as a topping. My husband got a scoop of Belgian Chocolate and a scoop of Mexican Vanilla, two of their signature flavors. Both were a terrific ending to the meal. Amy's Ice Creams' website is here.

It was a fun evening, and next time I hope to get to the actual city of Austin to eat at some of the great restaurants there.

  1. What fun that must have been. Food trucks are so fascinating, but somehow they never seem to be in the right place when I want to eat. Or maybe I'm the one not in the right place!

  2. Oh I've always wanted to do a food truck tasting. What a great way to taste different foods. We don't have food trucks here, but I really should see if any of the nearby towns (especially the college town) have them.

  4. Food trucks are always so fun--especially when you have a few to choose from and get to try some different specialties. ;-)

  5. What a great idea! One of our local breweries has an annual Food Truck Rodeo which is always a blast.

  6. Wow!! These food items are looking so yummy. I am drooling over this food. Thanks for sharing the photos. Last week I have been to a public event at Chicago venues and tried food of many food trucks there, that was really delicious.
