Popular Los Angeles breakfast truck The Rooster, known for its morning burritos, is coming to breakfast taco territory Austin. It’s taking over La Barbecue’s old food truck spot in the Aztec Food Trailer Park on East Cesar Chavez sometime in September.
It’s all about breakfast at the Rooster, known particularly for its massive Rico Suave burrito, filled with eggs, tater tots, bacon, cheddar cheese and cotija cheese, avocado, and salsa. Other morning dishes include breakfast tacos, avocado toast on brioche, and The Bodega breakfast sandwich on ciabatta buns.
There will be Austin-specific menu items to come too. Chef and owner Rouha Sadighi teases the possibility of a barbecue breakfast burrito collaboration, as well as a migas dish. The Rooster will be open for breakfast and lunch every day once it opens.
“We’re so excited to bring our love of breakfast to Austin,” said Sadighi in a statement, “and become part of this exciting food city.” She opened the trailer in winter 2016 in Los Angeles. Before that, she worked at Joe’s on Abbot Kinney, Bouchon, and Kye’s Montana in Los Angeles, as well as Penelope. She also competed on television shows Chopped and Cutthroat Kitchen
The Rooster’s new neighbors at Aztec include essential Thai spot Dee Dee, Raw Goods, and Austin's Cali-Mexican truck Super Burrito. La Barbecue moved over to Quickie Pickie just down the street, taking advantage of its kitchen, air conditioning, and indoor space, last week.
