2019 Austin food and wine alliance’s food corral


Cold Ones Pops is located in the heart of East Austin. We pop up with our vintage ice cream carts all over town, provide rad catering for both huge events and not so huge events, and can be found in stores throughout the central Texas area.


New school barbecue, old school service. We’re serving up alternative cuts of meat and creative sides using seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms and ranches. Expanding the boundaries of traditional barbecue, guests can expect market-style service of meats sliced to order and served by the pound, renewed versions of classic barbecue sides, and playful desserts, all varying daily. The LeRoy and Lewis mobile truck opens in advance of the forthcoming restaurant, brewery, and event space in Southwest Austin.


Year round The Wild Caravan is setup to serve smoothies and smoothie bowls. We are a dairy free smoothie bar. Why? Well, we have an 18 month old who nurses and we came to conclude that dairy in Mom’s diet affected the babe. Once dairy was cutout of breastmilk, babe felt better. Thus, a dairy free diet emerged and honestly mom has felt better, healthier, ever since. So in light of the babes diet, we started making smoothies dairy free from the beginning. We offer almond milk and coconut milk instead. The taste is amazing!


Heidi is from Key West, Florida by way of Connecticut, where she has cultivated and fine tuned her craft. Garbo was born and raised all over the northeast coast. She grew up around the lobster industry where her dad and uncle started Garbo Lobster Enterprise. When Heidi was in her early twenties she moved to Key West, FL and started her food trailer, “Garbo’s Grill.” This went on to be a huge success where she received local fame and recognition. During this time, Heidi got married and decided to move to Austin. While eating her way around this truck and trailer mecca, Heidi lost track of the variety of foods that she ate, but never forgot she was not eating lobster rolls. Taking personal responsibility for this, Garbo’s ATX was born.

East Side King offers globally influenced Japanese street food. Created by Paul Qui and Moto Utsunomiya during their time at Uchi/Uchiko, East Side King provided a space for creative freedom and fun with food. East Side King has grown from a food truck behind the Liberty Bar to include a brick and mortar on South Lamar, a catering department, and talent like Thai Changthong, Executive Chef of Thai-Kun. East Side King is inspired by Asian cultures, rock bands, art and Austin's laid-back, fun-loving vibe. We use quality ingredients like all natural pork, 100% vegetarian-fed pigs raised without antibiotics, hormones, or crates of any kind.


We create gourmet food unlike anything you expect from a food truck. Mike, our chef, lived in Austin for 12 years and now lives in Lockhart, Texas. Mike grew up in his parent's restaurants and bakeries where he developed a love for fine foods and cooking. After hosting a number of successful pop-ups and BBQ's, and working as a farm-to-table program teacher for Ecofier Culinary Institute, we decided to develop Gold Epicure. At Gold Epicure we have a few options for dining with us. You can visit us at our restaurant inside Flat Track Coffee on East Cesar Chavez, join our supper club, or you can commission us to cater your wedding, film shoot or private event. 

We specialize in outdoor, open flame cooking, which is an experience of its own. We love to combine that with family style food service with a focus on superb customer service.

As much as possible, we source local and organic ingredients. 


Bite into a little slice of heaven at Pieous in the Hill Country, where the pizza is so good, it earned a stamp of approval from the Italian government! This Dripping Springs “congregation” of delicious Italian eats is the creation of a Los Angeles couple who left the music business to sing the praises of wood-fired pizza. You’ll love their Neapolitan-style pies like the Margherita [above] with hand-pulled mozzarella, fresh basil, and organic crushed tomato sauce — you’ll swear it’s from a “higher power”! Don’t leave without one of their scratch-made pastries and desserts: their tiramisu rivals what you’ll find in Italy.


To us, "honest" simply means we use the purest ingredients we can find in our artisanal ice creams. What doesn’t go into our ice creams is just as important as what does. We never use artificial colors or flavors, high fructose corn syrup or preservatives, ever! We can trace every single ingredient we use to its source. Ice cream shouldn’t just taste good — we believe it should also be good.


Located in the Second Street District, Second Bar + Kitchen combines seasonal ingredients with local artisan products to create a sublime experience. Second Bar + Kitchen offers small plates for sharing, locally-recognized salads, delicious pizzas, entrees and desserts to enjoy. Second Bar + Kitchen is open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.


Everyone feels better when they eat more plants!  Our menu is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and is friendly for those on a Whole 30 or Paleo diet. We use nutrient-dense, ethically sourced, plant-based ingredients, and make sustainable decisions when it comes to all aspects of our operations.

Curcuma started as a personal journey for  chef and owner Rachel Musquiz, who experienced drastic changes as she became connected to where her food came from and embraced a plant-based lifestyle. Turmeric was the gateway herb to understanding how quickly the body adapts when you fuel it with the right ingredients. Every menu item utilizes superfoods and adaptogens as functional ingredients to maximize the potential of our bodies.


The Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew team is lead by Taylor, Texas native and owner Shane Stiles along with lead pitmaster Lance Kirkpatrick. Kirkpatrick brings over fifteen years of industry experience and an impressive resume to the establishment.

Stiles Switch BBQ & Brew, named after the historic 1800s I. & G. N. railroad stop Stiles Switch, Texas, is also namesake of the owner Shane Stiles. Shane’s inspiration for Stiles Switch BBQ is derived from his admiration of the Texas BBQ Legends he was raised on growing up in Central Texas.
