Here is a look at this month's batch of new food trucks, offering cajun dishes, old school Italian, good Thai, and sandwiches.

LA 1 CAJUN AND CREOLE

Get your po-boys, savory stuffed beignets, and other swamplandia cuisine while watching New Orleans sports games at St. Roch's. The new truck, named after Old Louisiana Highway 1 that traversed the state, serves as the solution to the NOLA-loving east side dive bar's food service space constraints.

BAMMPAS

Now open on Barton Springs Road across from the Palmer Events Center, is Bammpas ("Bam-Pows"), which declares itself to have the best sandwiches in Austin. Recent items on what appears to be the rotating menu include a California-style chicken quesadilla, a grilled cheese sandwich, and a hamburger topped with a toad-in-the-hole.

DEE DEE

Dee Dee specializes in northern Thai food over at 1906 East Cesar Chavez, open for just three short weeks so far. This includes Pad Ka Pow and mango sticky rice. According to one Yelper, "legit real Thai food" has finally arrived here in Austin.

VIC & AL'S

The Patrizi brothers have finally opened their second trailer, Vic & Al's. Where their first truck focused on Italian cuisine, this one, named after their grandparents' midcentury Beaumont restaurant, is Cajun and Creole focused. While drinking and enjoying live music at Scoot Inn, guests can enjoy boudin, cochon de lait po-boys, gumbo, and more.
