austin food trailers featured in men’s health
Austin food trailers get some big love in the July/August issue of Men’s Health magazine from writer Matt Goulding and photographer Nathaniel Welch. As part of a stomach-churning, one-week, seven-city tour, the two visited Austin for about 24 hours in April. I acted as their guide to the places we could hit on an Easter Sunday and an early Monday: Flip Happy Crepes, Gourdough’s, the Mighty Cone, Muck-NDave’s, G’raj Mahal, Sushi-A-Go-Go and Izzoz Tacos. That means we missed two of the best — East Side King and Odd Duck — but Goulding and Welch got a mouthful of Austin character, especially decent sushi in a gas station parking lot and the one stop I missed, barbecue from a school bus (Old School). Goulding went on to name Izzoz’s crispy taco and Old School’s brisket as two of the country’s 10 Best Street Eats, in company with dishes from New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. But this being Men’s Health (Kellan’s Full-Body Blast!), Austin also made the Unhealthiest Mobile Meals list with the Puddin’ doughnut with ice cream from Gourdough’s: “This is not a doughnut; it’s a spare tire.”
