A new food truck on the east side of town is helmed by former Hugo's Restaurant y Tequila Bar chef Luis Alberto Carreno, who left the South Austin Mexican restaurant last month. Cravin's started by taking a sandwich tour of New Braunfels (think: "Schlitter-banh-mi") but has settled at East Side Eats for now, at the intersection of Sixth and Brushy Streets. His business partner is former City of Austin city manager Roger Chan. Carreno tells Eater Austin, via e-mail:
"Our menu and its ingredients are all locally sourced. Produce provided by Slow Foods Austin, bacon from Niman Ranch, bread from New World Bakery. We offer gourmet sandwiches at an affordable price."A current menu sampling: the "TX BLT" on sourdough bread ($7), a Korean pork BBQ sub ($8) and fresh-squeezed limeade and homemade pomegranate green tea for $2. Carreno added they're "on our way to opening more trucks with Kitchens On Wheels," that will feature "all different concepts."
