A local food truck based on South 1st St. This food truck is taking the people of Austin away into donut heaven. It has received much publicity, being seen on the Food Network and Cooking Channel, this food truck has definitely made it’s mark in the food scene.
Now for the Donuts.
First off, let me just say, as hard as it was finding parking for South Bites, just finding Gourdough’s was like a “Harold and Kumar go to white castle” story.
Seriously, it took us at least 1 hour trying to find the place. Hell, it took us a good 45 minutes just trying to get across the river and onto South 1st St!
How sad is that, i’ve lived in Austin my whole life and I couldn’t even get across the river…
Granted it was very crazy and many roads were closed for SXSW, and honestly I don’t have much experience driving downtown… but still… don’t judge!
THERE IT IS!
That’s exactly how it went. Me and one of my friends practically screamed in excitement when we saw the silver bullet food truck just past Elizabeth St.
After an hour of being lost and guessing on how to get there, we finally arrived.
As usual I had looked up the menu before we went, but I still had no idea what to get. Upon arrival though I saw something I didn’t see on their online menu.
A donut called “Sara’s Joy”. It was destiny. There was no way I couldn’t not get it.
“Sara’s Joy” is a coconut cream filled donut glazed with chocolate and shredded coconut. Ummm yes.This donut definitely brought this Sarah joy.
It was everything I wanted. Rich, sweet, decadent. It came out hot and gooey, and although it was hot that day, it was the perfect treat. It was so good. Gourdoughs definitely lived up to my expectations and surpassed them.
My friends both got donuts with bananas on them. I tried both and they were both amazing as well. One was the “Puddin”, a banana pudding inspired donut, and the other seemed like a bananas foster inspired donut, although im not sure what it was called.
All in all I had a great day. We got lost, we drove around with no clue where to go but we ate some amazing food and had fun.
Gourdoughs and Chilantro I can’t wait to come back!
