The Jalopy Under Wraps

I’m no rookie when it comes to eating at the Jalopy Rotisserie and Press.  The giant truck parked just north of downtown has been sitting pretty sliding out some amazing sandwiches since day one.  The menu is diverse, chock-full of homemade sauces that push the boundaries on what a sandwich shop should be doing, but that sort of inventiveness has been baked into the Jalopy since day one.  And it’s that same sense of “don’t get too comfortable” that drives the owner, Nic, to keep trying new things.  And that’s exactly what warrants a fourth blog post on the same trailer on this blog.

Eat St. Rocking the Jalopy

Last Tuesday Food Network’s Eat St. came to Austin to kickoff their five-trucks-in-five-days profile of Austin’s mobile food scene.  They’re here filming for Season 2 of their show, after having already profiled ChiLantro BBQ and Lucky J’s last year for Season 1.  Their first stop was at the Jalopy Rotisserie and Press, profiling Nic, his truck, and his delicious food.  Lucky for me I was able to swing by and even make an on-camera appearance!

The Gypsy Picnic – In Review

Where were you on Saturday, November 6th, 2010?  If you live in (or near) Austin, you were definitely at the Gypsy Picnic.  How do I know?  Because the entire city and its surrounding suburbs seemed to be in attendance.  The crowds that congregated on Auditorium Shores became prohibitively large, making any attempt to enjoy the event completely futile.  Unfortunately, that’s probably what the Picnic will be remembered for, rather than a great celebration of Austin’s unique food scene.  Sit back and get comfy, this is gonna get long*.

Jalopy Rotisserie and Press – Back to Basics
