When visiting Austin, there's only one dining ritual for us and this is it. What started as a food trailer with outdoor seating is now a full-fledged brick-and-mortar restaurant. What's even better, they're debuting their new digs during SXSW before the official grand opening. That means you'll be among the first to dine on seafood curry, grilled lamb chops, and flaky samosas.
