austin food trail­ers fea­tured in men’s health

Austin American-Statesman - - FOODMATTERS - — M.S.

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.”
