After The Surrogate Valentine premiere, I was beyond ready to grub! Torchy’s Tacos is all over Austin (with one location in Dallas). This stand is in the Trailer Park and Eatery, which features a number of other food trailers.
I prefer this to Los Angeles’ food truck scene – you don’t need to hunt the location down, and you don’t have to eat on the sidewalk!
While waiting for our tacos, Abe and I share an appetizer. STARVING! The chips can’t get into my belly fast enough. By the end, I am desperately shoving handfuls of crumbs in my mouth.
Then I’m DRINKING the salsa. Classy!
For my main course, I order the Brush Fire Taco without Sour Cream. I find it to be very fresh and not too spicy, even with the grilled jalapeños.
I also try a bite of Abe’s Fried Avocado Taco. Think Jalapeño Popper, or Mozzarella Stick, breading.
Very full and happy, we headed over to The Blue Starlite Drive-in Theatre, where there are more cool trailers! This is the Wonder Craft – a boutique of handmade goodies housed in an Airstream.
We come to see my Surrogate Valentine leading man, Goh Nakamura, perform.
Speaking of music, Surrogate Valentine has a soundtrack!
