Trailer Treats

Campus Food Trailers A Course Not to Be Missed

By: Tiffany Harelik

College is often a time when home cooking is noticeably missed and appreciated.
It’s also a time when young adults broaden their palates and explore new cuisines. With several trailers hosting a variety of menu options near the sprawling University of Texas campus, students, professors and wanderers alike can satiate their longing for home cooking once and for all.

If you’re near campus, check out the Cajun delights, especially the po-boys and étouffée, at Lee’s Hurricane Party (Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Rio Grande). Having expanded into his recently acquired, beautiful Airstream, Lee has plenty of room to whip up gastronomic creations from the Louisiana heartland.
Next door to Lee’s, vegetarians can get their fill of homemade food that doesn’t adversely impact the environment at Conscious Cravings. I like the chimichurri seitan wrap and can vouch for the rosemary baked fries as well. You’ve got to give them props for an Austintatious mission where “everyone has the right to consume healthy, affordable food that tastes good.”
In the same trailer park as Lee’s and Conscious Cravings, check out Yummy Bowl, a new Asian-fusion trailer whose menu is inspired by its Hong Kong chef. The best seller and my personal favorite is the chicken teriyaki on coconut jasmine rice.
To conquer any more hunger pangs of the Asian persuasion, try Fresh Off the Truck (20th and Whitis). In their words, “Asian street food plus ATX equals Ni-HaoWdy!” From bánh mís to noodles to rice boxes, this truck has every Vietnamese and Korean treat on your Asian street-food radar. Try the green onion pancake with soy dipping sauce for a munchie you’ll crave.
In Hyde Park, a little farther north, but still considered a campus-hood, Biscuits and Groovy (51st and Duval) whips out multiple mouth-watering parodies of biscuits and gravy. With menu options like the Johnny Hash and Philly Nelson, the Donna Summer and the Gloria Gaynor, you can’t go wrong. P.S.: They have a radical mixed-tape swap; bring one in to trade, pick one of theirs up and jam on.
