Zero Degrees, the Asian-Hispanic snacks and drinks chain based in California, is opening its very first Austin restaurants. The Cedar Park location at 800 West Whitestone Boulevard, Suite B5 has opened as of September 16, with the second in South Austin at 4211 South Lamar Boulevard, Suite A3 opening probably sometime in November.
Zero Degrees’s main dish is the mangonada — a sweet, spicy, and salty mango slushie made with chunks of fruit, chamoy sauce, and Tajin seasoning. There are also items topped with hot Cheetos elotes, chicharrones, hot cheese fries, nachos), chicken wings, popcorn chicken, and fries doused with Cajun spices. Drinks-wise, there are ube milkshakes, other slushies like strawberry-lychee and watermelon, horchata, as well as milk teas and coffee.
Zero Degrees founders Ken Le, Trinity Le, and San Huynh started the company in 2013 in Orange County, California, and grew with locations across the country, including Texas. The first Houston store opened in 2017.
Zero Degrees’s Cedar Park hours are from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
