SXSW is back!
Since 1987, SXSW has been making a huge statement amongst festival goers, artists, and musicians alike. The festival has much to offer: films, music, interactive….and FOOD. To fully appreciate and enjoy the SXSW experience, this means partaking in the foods from local Austinite hotspots. For the first time festival goer, you will learn this isn’t a cause of concern as Austin boasts an impressive resume of restaurants and world-renowned chefs. Whether you’re trying to stay on your best game, combat a hangover, or just an adventurous foodie, you are bound to find a food truck that might have you wanting more!
Located at the SXSW Southbites trailer park, Boteco ATX offers Brazilian street food. If you’re craving “brunch,” this food truck has a menu item consisting of “Churrasquinho” (grilled beef) with a side dish of farofa with vinaigrette. Farofa is often served as a side dish, and is made from toasted flour of a yucca plant. Along with the churrasquinho, Boteca tops the Farofa with seasoning, vinaigrette and an egg. This adds a Brazilian flair on the traditional “steak and eggs,” making Boteco’s menu item a delightful brunch for those on the go. This food truck also has other menu items including steak skewers, yucca fries, and beef or cheese pastels.
Via 313 brings Detroit to Austin. With their delicious Detroit style pizza, Via 313 is a highly recommended food truck to try while you’re in Austin. Cooked Sicilian style in a squared pan, the menu options vary, with selections including The Detroiter (cheese and double pepperoni), and Herbivore (cheese, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions) to name a few. Whether you’re coming or going to an event, if you see this food truck, give it a try!
From Houston to ATX, Modular Unit consists of food that is reflective of Houston’s diverse community. Their menu items consist of lobster tortas, gulf shrimp and kimchi grits, and pork and vegetable dumplings.
