Food trucks are what keep Austin running, and here are nine new ones to hit up. There are different takes on cuisine from Thailand, Texas, Tibet, and more.

Perhaps the only Tibetan food spot around, Tibetan Momo food truck serves its namesake fried and steamed. Momos are type of dumpling or potsticker served in Tibet — traditionally with yak meat — but in Austin, they come in ground beef and vegetable varieties.

Mustachioed mobile kitchen Backdraft Pizza brings thin crust pizza and thick, doughy waffles to Austin. The truck offers 11" specialty pizzas and build-your-own choices, all baked in an 800° oven.

Song La is a food truck dedicated exclusively to traditional Taiwanese street food. Co-owners Aleksandr Karpets and his Taiwan-born wife Shirley Yang, thought Taiwanese food was woefully underrepresented and wanted to bring it to Austin. Song La will feature pork belly buns, braised pork fried rice, tofu fries, and bian dang, (think bento box).

Garçon's

Yinz Hungry offers comfort food for the masses, from funnel cakes to chicken nuggets and Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. It's a bit like fair fun food, but from a truck. Visitors to the mobile kitchen love the low prices.

It's all about that fry at Rolling Rooster. This mobile kitchen offers fried fish, fried shrimp, and fried chicken — with a waffle, naturally. Look for the Rooster if you're craving the Southern favorite chicken and waffles.

Ice Scrapers

Are regular frozen treats too boring for you? Try a colorful concoction from Ice Scrapers — perhaps a carrot cake sundae or Fruity Pebbles ice cream. This food truck is fun for the whole family. Lactose intolerant? Try one of the many flavors of snowballs.

THe Ginger Armadillo

The Ginger Armadillo (yes, the chef is a redhead) serves "elevated Texas cuisine." Look for lengua tacos, Frito pie, and a Lonestar BLT.

If you love puns and food trucks, then give newcomer Eye of the Thai Girl a try. This food truck hit the road last Wednesday, but the traditional Thai fare is already a hit on Yelp (ok, they only have one review, but it's five stars.
