Austin’s latest crop of food trucks have got your sandwich and frozen dessert needs covered. Let’s start with dessert first.
The Science Cream
Liquid nitrogen-blasted ice cream is the hotness these days, and The Science Cream is churning out funky, inventive flavors like minted beets and pistachio oil on Barton Springs. There’s also plain vanilla, with the option of heaping it on top of brownies and churros or blended into a milkshake.
Thai-style ice cream rolls are the star of the show at Holla Mode on Barton Springs near Zilker Park. Diners choose a dairy base (dairy milk or coconut milk for a buck extra) and a flavor and "chops" (think mix’ins at Amy’s Ice Cream) from the menu, then the mixture is poured onto an anti-griddle that freezes the concoction. The ice cream is then scraped up into rolls and served in a cup.
Kicken and Waffles
For those who ever wondered what it would be like to have chicken and waffles in sandwich format, topped with homemade jams, Kicken and Waffles is the answer. Available in savory and sweet combinations out on South Congress near St. Edward's.
