The popular food trailer, Chi'lantro BBQ, has a presence this year. Gotta try the Kimchi Fries Beef. It’s the dish that made them famous.
2nd Bar Kitchen is new to the scene. I want to get the Pork Belly Banh Mi, described as Crispy Pork Belly, Chili Mayo, Carrot Slaw, Nam Pla, Cilantro and Mint. Sold!
Tim Love's The Woodshed Smokehouse is well known in the Fort Worth area. Elk and Beehive Sausage with House Mustard and Pickles sounds like a winner.
Local company Good Pop is offering their frozen treats. A Watermelon Agave Popsicle would be refreshing around 2:00 p.m. when the sun is high.
My oldest son loves Boomerangs Aussie Pies, so I have to try a Guinness Steak/Potato Pie for him. Best eaten while listening to an Australian band like Gotye.
Luke's Inside and Out is offering Watermelon 2 ways--plain or with goat cheese and pop rocks. Interesting combo.
I believe this might be the first year for Mandola's at ACL. A good end of night snack might be their Hot Italian Donuts.
The Gardner’s Feast, a Hope Farmer’s Market vendor, is offering Pork Tomatillo and Chicken Mole tamales which could make it feel like Christmas.
Another Hope Farmer’s Market vendor is Lamba's Royal Indian Food. They are offering Chicken Tikka Masala with Naan. Sounds like a nice change of pace.
It wouldn’t be ACL without Mighty Cone’s Hot and Crunchy Shrimp with Avocado. An original to be sure.
And to wash it all down, a visit to the Zilker Drafthouse for craft beers like, Shock Top Belgian White, Redhook Longhammer, Kona Pipeline Porter and Shock Top Lemon Shandy. Hope to see you there. (Cathy)
