I don’t hit many trailers, but I sought this one out. I was moved for two reasons. The food was as good as I had heard. What I wasn’t expecting was the location. This is easily the best food trailer lot in Austin. Sitting under huge Oak trees with a breeze and a view of downtown, I started with the Summer Watermelon and Feta salad ($6). Good choice. Nice flavor balance and refreshing.
Ham, Brie and Fig sandwich ($7) was right on. Domestic brie with fig preserves on a authentic baguette. Sweet, rich and smokey.
A full line of traditional small plate tapas is also available. And, this is the view you get while you are munching. Did you hear that? That was the sound of me getting in my car to head back to La Tasca.

UPDATE: The world can be a crappy place. La Tasca had to move again.
