Located in the South Austin Trailer Park & Eatery is Torchy’s Tacos. Torchy’s is famous for serving up some pretty amazing tacos, breakfast tacos and other treats. We eyed the migas, Fried Avocado tacos, Trailer park (fried chicken and poblano sauce) taco, but settled on just a few to try.
There are also beef and chicken fajita tacos, jamaican jerk chicken, baja shrimp and eggs and poblano chili tacos.
We ordered the Crossroads for $4.00 with smoked beef brisket with grilled onions, jalapenos, cilantro, jack cheese, and a slice of avocado served with tomatillo sauce. Mr. Pink for $4.00 was Guajillo seared Ahi-tuna, cabbage fresca, cilantro, queso fresco and tomatillo sauce with a wedge of lime. Both tacos were spot on and super fresh.
The deep fried chocolate chip cookies, green chile queso and chips look really good and warrants another return trip.
Another hotel we would love to stay at in the future is Hotel San Jose with its bungalows covered in green ivy and tiles.
Bouldin Creek Coffeehouse and Cafe has been open for over a decade and serves fairly priced, vegetarian food. Some items include omelets, bagel sandwiches, tofu tacos, salads, veggies and fajitas.
They serve 25 different hot teas, Sake Lemonades and “The Leveler” which has Guinness, espresso and chocolate. We tried the Thai Take-Off has two shots espresso & sweet condensed milk on ice.
Next time, I would give the Tokyo Fog Green Tea Chai and vanilla, steeped in steamed milk, a try.
We stopped by Jo’s because some solid live music was being played in their outdoor area. Then we tried ordering some breakfast tacos, but they were all out.
Joe’s some unique sandwiches including Hot Pepper Beef, thinly sliced rare roast beef, provolone cheese with sweet pickled peppers and Frito Pie, Wheat Roast or Pulled Pork topped with shredded cheddar and diced red onion.
