i just got back to austin after a month of travels, and to my great excitement, i noticed that there's a new food trailer in 78704 -- that sells vietnamese sandwiches, drinks and snacks! (on s. lamar, just south of the office depot on s. lamar and oltorf, on the same side of the street as the OD)
since i moved here 3 and a half years ago (from ny), i've lived in this neighborhood, and while my attitude toward tacos is one of reverence, i sometimes get a craving for something else. one of my favorite snacks/small meals is the vietnamese summer roll -- 'goi cuon' -- refreshing and cheap, and satisfying. when i was working up north i was close to asian food of all sorts, but i am now working downtown, so i don't venture too far north anymore, especially on weekends. thus, i was especially excited to find out that this new trailer (it's been open about a month) is selling fresh summer rolls($3), vietnamese sandwiches (including several veggie versions, such as lemongrass tofu - $4), vermicelli bowls ($5.75), bubble tea($3), and hot or iced vietnamese coffee(the ultimate way to satisfy my sweet tooth and caffeine craving simultaneously, $2.50). when i biked by today, they were closing up shop, so i grabbed a menu and found out the hours: tues-sat 11-6.
can't wait to taste lulu b's creations! i will definitely venture there next saturday and report back here.
