5 Restaurants to eat at in Austin right now

February 26, 2018 | By Wes Womack

1 Veracruz All Natural

Austin’s best taco truck opened its first Austin-proper restaurant up in North Burnet. Along with the beloved and new tacos (migas, chicken milanesa), the restaurant dishes up chilaquiles, enchiladas, and open-face tacos, along with coffee from Machine Head Coffee.

2 Be More Pacific

Chefs/owners Giovan Cuchapin and Mark Pascual found a forever-home for their Filipino food truck in North Shoal Creek. Dishes like lumpia, adobo, kare kare, and ube ice cream sundaes made with Amy's Ice Cream, can be found during counter-service lunch and table-service dinner. For evening meals, people can opt for the family-style Kamayan dinners with off-menu items like whole fried fish and stuffed squid.

3 Foreign & Domestic

Parkside alums Sarah Heard and Nathan Lemley took overthe North Loop restaurant from founding owner/chef Ned Elliott, and it resulted in new bright dishes that remain true to its New American roots. Take tomato tarts, seared lamb hearts, and duck egg and grains bowl. Don’t be afraid to explore the offal tasting menu.

4 Pokeatery

The California-based fast-casual poke restaurant made its first mark on Texas, bringing forth poke boxes full of ahi tuna, rice, nori, kimchi, and more to Mueller. What makes this particular poke spot stand out are the cultishly beloved pineapple soft serve Dole Whip.

5. Colleen's Kitchen

This Southern-inspired newcomer to the Mueller development is designed to feel like a favorite relative’s home. Drop in for stick-to-your-ribs specialties like fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, biscuits, and fried chicken.
