This food truck and trailer spot delivers Southeast Asia all the way to Southeast Texas. DFG Noodles (which stands for Dang F’in Good) incorporates the flavors of Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines into delectable sandwiches, street food, and noodle dishes. Chef Cheryl Chin grew up in Singapore, where a life-changing meal with her father at the age of six convinced her to learn to cook. Now she loves inspiring people with amazing food, just as she was inspired as a child. Try the gluten-free, vegan Malay, a coconut curry over jasmine rice with a mix of vegetables, fried shallots, and your choice of tofu or two eggs any style.
Whether your diet is paleo, whole30(R), gluten-free, or just about anything else, Picnik Austin has menus and options for you. With three Austin locations, Picnik prides itself on sourcing pasture-raised meat, wild-caught fish, and local produce. Plus they don’t use gluten, soy, peanuts, or corn in anything. Picnik relies on avocado oil, which is known for heart-healthy fats, oleic acid, vitamin E, and carotenoids, in its fryers. The oil is also a top pick, alongside grass-fed butter, for sautéing. Check out the fresh catch, chef’s choice of wild-caught fish, served with creamy parsnip mash, roasted root vegetables, and an orange aminos beurre blanc sauce. For the vegan eggplant rollatini, boasts thinly sliced eggplant, roasted jalapeño, cashew/cauliflower ricotta, and marinara sauce. Even those outside of Austin can get a taste of Picnik: Whole Foods Market recently announced they will carry Picnik’s line of bottled butter coffee in all stores.
Born in Osaka and Kobe, Japan, respectively, Takehiro (Také) Asazu and Kayo Asazu met in Austin in 1996 and have been together ever since. Missing the family-style Japanese meals of their hometowns, the Asazus drew inspiration from the recipes of their mothers and grandmothers. The journey to Komé began in 2006 with a bento box catering company, followed by a made-to-order sushi food trailer in 2009 and a second trailer in 2010. With help from a commercial designer and carpenter flown in from Japan, the Asazus opened the dine-in-only Komé Sushi in 2011, offering home-style, everyday Japanese comfort food, sushi, and other “unique foods” from their global cooking explorations. Check out Komé’s bento boxes, hot ramen noodle bowls, or one of the cold noodle salads, such as the Hiyashi Chuka (cold ramen with spinach, corn, pickled ginger, cucumbers, and salmon sashimi, served with kewpie mayo).
Even people who aren’t vegans love Casa De Luz and its focus on wholesome, delicious, plant-based meals. Perhaps that’s because Casa De Luz isn’t just about a tasty lunch, but about food’s higher calling and influence on community. The founders started at a time when many patrons didn’t fully understand the macrobiotic lifestyle and diet Casa De Luz promoted through its nonprofit community center. After all, it’s great to fill up on a good meal—but it’s a bonus when you leave with a full heart. Relax and revitalize with some red rooibos, lemongrass, and peppermint tea, and be sure to check out the selections of beans, greens, and fermented vegetables—many of which are served with the house nut and seed sauce (a mix of freshly ground nuts and seeds, vegetables, herbs, and miso). If you want a taste of Casa De Luz in your own casa, check out their cookbook full of whole-food, plant-based recipes.
