Shortly after polishing off the Don Juan, we headed to find our first food truck, Chi'Lantro. It is located in the downtown area with a couple of other trucks/trailers and a few picnic tables. Chi'Lantro specializes in Korean tacos, kimchi fries and other Korean-ex fusion fare like bulgogi quesadillas.
|Take a look at that well-marinated beef, bulging through the corn tortilla seams. It was quite messy to eat, but thank goodness they gave us a couple sporks to tackle it with.|
|The Turf 'n Surf trailer is located right next to Chi'Lantro and uses a cardboard box to detail its menu. My eating partner was a bit creeped out to eat here, but I think Diana and I should most definitely try it out when we tackle Austin.|
|Cleaned our palates with some Amy's Ice Cream, a local chain in Austin. Flavors can vary by location, but the most popular, as stated by the clerk, was the Mexican Vanilla. We sampled it and agreed the deep, rich vanilla tones was a winner. We mixed it with a Reese's peanut butter cup. Perfection.|
|Home Slice Pizza.|
|Home Slice Pizza is a popular hangout along the Congress strip well known for good, thin New York style pizza. They sell by the slice or by the pie.|

|Pepperoni. Always good.|
|Cute after-meal candy!|
|Near Home Slice are several food truck/trailers. Some were closed by that team or seriously depleted of their signature goods, so we just had a quick snack at The Mighty Cone, known for serving tacos in cones.|
|I couldn't eat any more tacos that day, so we opted for their chili-dusted fries. Their red picnic tables are topped with a round disc that has several drilled holes to hold the cone cups.|
|The chili-dusted fries were more salty than spicy, had a chewy crunch but still satiated our fried cravings.|
The sun was beginning to set, so it will be time for dinner soon!
