Chi'Lantro (Austin, TX)
As I said before, if you go here only decide to get one item, you HAVE to go with the Kimchi Fries. This particular order has fresh hot fries smothered with beef bulgolgi, onions, cheese, and cilantro. They add extra flavor with kimchi (of course), Korean pepper sauce, and a spicy orange sauce.
With your choice of beef, spicy pork, spicy chicken, or tofu, these tacos pack quite a flavor punch. The choice of meat/tofu is place on top of a double layer of corn tortillas. Then, it's topped with salad, onion, cilantro, and finished off with kimchi.
Verdict? If you're hungry late at night on the weekends, make Chi'Lantro one of your top picks. You can also drop by for a quick lunch or even have them cater an event for you. I can say that I will be going back to this place because I already have a few times so if you haven't tried it yet, this makes for a good "sobering up" thing to grab after a night of debauchery on 6th. For those of you that ride the E-Bus downtown, Chi'Lantro is conveniently opening up a new truck location at 7th and Trinity so make sure to drop by.
twitter since they're at different places during the day and sometimes might have location changes for nighttime on weekends.
