Austin Gypsy Picnic Trailer Food Festival

I checked out the Austin Gypsy Picnic Trailer Food Festival this weekend and was able to try out a few places. The weather was clear and sunny, lots of families, dogs, live music, and even story reading for the kids! The trailers were set up like how they’re located within the city and there were large street signs to indicate what area you’re in. It was also really cool seeing all the different trailer designs. The lines got quite long by noon so it took on average about 45 mins to get your food.  I was able to try out three different trailers: Chi’ Lantro BBQ, Jalopy, Turf N Surf  Po’ Boys.  I was pretty pleased with all three. My favorites were the Kim Chi fries w/chicken from Chi’ Lantro BBQ, and the mango taco from Jalopy.

Look at the cool sandwich slide!

    That’s art.

    We were on our way down there, then got the cal saying lines were fifty people long. So we went to Ginger Man instead. Everytime I go downtown I always seem to end up at “Ginger Man instead.”
