East Side King @ Liberty Bar, Austin TX

After being in Dallas for six months, we finally made a trip to Austin, an easy four hour drive (short for Texas). Austin is such a free-spirited place, which seems odd for the Texan capitol. We think Dallas needs to lighten up a bit and take a note from Austin. What an unique culture! Most importantly, the food experience was incredible. I don't have time to talk about all of the places we ate at, but this one food truck was very memorable. Our friend Lindsey, who lives and breathes Austin culture, took us to Liberty Bar where they have an East Side King food truck parked in the back patio. I still miss their pan fried brussels sprouts which was amazing!

We ordered and shared Poor Qui’s Buns (roasted pork belly in steamed buns, hoisin sauce, cucumber kimchi, and green onion), Fried Brussels Sprouts ( in a sweet-spicy sauce, shredded cabbage, alfalfa sprouts, basil, cilantro, mint, onion, jalapeño), and Thai Chicken Karaage (deep-fried chicken thigh, sweet-spicy sauce, fresh basil, cilantro, mint, onion, jalapeño). Everything was deliciously mouth watering. Can't wait to go back there again!
