Puli-Ra, the highly praised food truck from chef Deepa Shridhar is moving from its location at Texas Keeper Cider in Manchaca. The truck’s last day will be this Sunday, November 11.

Puli-Ra is celebrating its last weekend at Texas Keeper Cider with favorite dishes like naan croissants, honeycomb ghee, dirty chai, and white pumpkin pickles, and products available to take home.

After Puli-Ra closes, Texas Keeper will offer cafe service with items like cheese plates, charcuterie boards, soup, and sandwiches. A press release emphasized that there is no bad blood between the owners of Puli-Ra and Texas Keeper Cider.

Chef Deepa Shridhar is looking to return to her supper club roots, with pop-ups in the works and perhaps a storefront in the future. Puli-Ra opened at Texas Keeper Cider in January after a stint at Still Austin Whiskey Co. Shridhar originally opened bakery and farmers market stand Chaiwalla and supper club Anjore in 2014.

For its last weekend at the cidery, the truck will be open from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday, and noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday.

November 9, 4:10 p.m.: This article has been updated to reflect that Chef Shridhar will keep the truck, but is changing business models.
