During our “vacation” to Austin, we finally had a chance to try out some of the great trailer food popping up in town … mostly south of the river. Our first stop was Mighty Cone, on South Congress which was mighty good! I had been hearing about it for awhile, because it is run by Hudson’s on the Bend, a great restaurant way out near Lake Travis. Much closer, and much cheaper, this little trailer offers a short and sweet menu with the same interesting blend of flavors. The cone of choice was the Hot ‘N Crunchy Chicken Avocado cone. The chicken and avocado are covered in a crunchy shell of almonds-sesame seeds-corn flakes-chili flakes-and-sugar, wrapped in a flour tortilla and then topped with mango-jalapeno slaw and ancho sauce. That’s a lot of flavor in one cone! It was lip-smacking good!
The picnic area provides shady umbrellas and the tables have special cone holders built in. Very handy. Above right: this little pistol-packin’ mama just happened to stroll by our table with her pretend six-shooter ready to take on thievin’ outlaws. We were definitely in Texas.
