Austin Dinner Spots at SXSW

Nope no pictures of BBQ.  But, the sweet goodness of the trailer trucks serving up snow cones and doughnuts!

So let's start with the doughnuts.  It is an epic tale of weary travelers trying to score a late night snack.  My husband and my best friend's husband (yep he was at SXSW for work and joined us for late night food and fun.  Sorry Liz we missed you) went to sushi and doughnuts twice.

Here is the breakdown:

Night One:
Dinner three people at Uchi followed by arriving to Gourdoughs doughnut trailer to find out they RAN OUT OF DOUGH!  Not cool.  So we went to Magnolia Cafe on South Congress for late night snacks.  A brownie sundae, a piece of pie and a chocolate chip pancake.

Night Two:
Dinner with four people at Perlas followed by a late night run with my filmmaker and the husband to The Liberty and the awesome East Side Kings trailer.  Perlas is good.  Simple seafood in the heart of Austin.  Oak Grill makes everything taste better.

Night Three:
Dinner three people at Uchiko followed by a return to Gourdoughs.  They had dough and we proceeded to ordered a bunch to try and taste test.  We all determined that the doughnut hole option is better then the big doughnuts.  The smaller ones taste better and get good and crispy on the outside.

Snow cones were from Sno Beach.  A trailer on Barton Springs Road.  Picture above is of Grape and Sweet Tea.  A must on a hot day.  They were killing it.

Austin food scene is fun.  There is a feeling of people that care about food but also don't want to over do it.  Trailers galore.  A full choice of cuisines to choose from all over town.

I will post my lunch spots soon..
