Dee Dee, one of Austin’s best Thai food trucks, is expanded its spicy menu with a bunch of new dishes courtesy of its new second trailer, which will house a charcoal fire pit and rotisserie at its current home on 2500 East Sixth Street at the La Holly bar sometime soon.
The menu will feature Issan-style takes on whole spatchcocked chicken with sticky rice and both spicy and sweet dipping sauces; dry short ribs; Thai beef jerky, and potentially fermented sour sausages and whole-grilled salt-crusted fish stuffed with lemongrass.
Chef Lakana Trubiana and Dee Dee co-owner Justin Trubiana had always wanted to serve what they called “Thai farmer-style barbecue.” Helping out in the kitchen is Connor Wood, who has been part of the Dee Dee staff for the past year and a half. He’ll oversee the fires and charcoal pits.
The Trubianas opened Dee Dee in 2016 on East Cesar Chavez before it moved to its current East 6th Street home earlier this year.
