New to Larkin Square and scheduled to open as early as next week is Square 1 Sandwiches. Built in a beautiful old Airstream Trade Wind Land Yacht, the eatery looks as bold and bright as the elevated food court that seconds as a back drop and band stand. The mostly-stationary food truck (trailer) is also located next to the newly opened Filling Station restaurant with a sixteen seat patio for patrons to share. Either that or sit at one of the many colorful lawn seats, some of which are now shaded with gigantic patio umbrellas.
Yup. Basically, vacant lots house collections of food trailers, usually in Airstreams. Most are in the South Austin and South Congress neighborhoods. It works well there because of the weather, and the absurd number of foodies, hipsters, and foodie hipsters that call Austin home.
I certainly prefer the Hydraulics, this area is the twin to Black Rock, both neighborhoods developed in the 1820's due to the availability of waterpower.
It's the name the folks at Buffalo Rising give to the area that is historically known as The Hydraulics.
The biggest compliment I can find is to say that the bottom photo there looks like one of those architectural renderings. You know, the ones they do where reality never matches the actual picture? I had to look closely to figure out whether or not the two guys pictured were actually there.
A little more infill across the street and wow...
This is right where Seneca, Swan, and Emslie Streets come together on the East Side, a few blocks east of the intersection of Seneca & Hamburg Streets. If you take the 190, there's an exit at Hamburg. Go north to Seneca and turn right.
Might be nice to see these fill an entire lot, like in Austin. Food trailer parks are a popular attraction there.
That's a pretty appealing sounding menu.
Congrats to Zemsky and partners. This area is such a pleasant surprise. Really coming together. Well done.
