Three top food trucks to check out in Austin

If you are attending the Escoffier Texas culinary school, the South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in Austin is a must-visit. As one of the more unique and creative convergences of music, film and technology in the country, SXSW brings excitement and intrigue to the streets of Austin, and with it, comes a need to feed a whole lotta people. For inspiration on where to dig in and get on board with the food truck trend, keep a look out for Austin’s best restaurants on wheels around the event. These include:

1. Luke’s Inside-Out: According to Orbitz, this food truck features a fusion-bent menu that draws inspiration from both Southern and Asian cultures.

2. Hey!… You Gonna Eat Or What?: This truck is a relative newcomer in the Austin area. According to Serious Eats, the husband and wife cooking team make everything onsite, from French fries to cherry and fig jam.

3. Coreanos: According to Culture Map, Coreanos was ranked as no. 35 on The Daily Meal’s list of America’s 101 Best Food Trucks. This establishment pays homage to Los Angeles’ Kogi BBQ truck – which is often cited as the epicenter of the modern food truck craze – with a mixture of traditional Korean and Mexican flavors.
