Food Truck Infatuation, The Juice Well

July 17, 2014 , , , ,

One of the ways I enjoy travel is by trying all kinds of gastronomy. In Austin the food truck craze is very advanced. There are more trucks than I could have imagined, most with permanent locations. I found a barbecue place close to home yesterday and was tempted by the cheese jalapeño grits they serve as a side. When I stopped to try the grits, the Juice Well was open next door. Now I have a problem.  I have fallen so deeply in love with the food at the Juice Well that it will be hard to move on and try anything else.  This vegetarian juice and smoothie bar goes to great lengths to prepare natural, homemade sandwiches and entrées that compliment the liquid delights.  I was thrilled with my Merlin’s Magic juice blend that was spiked with garlic and lemon juice.  The sandwich I ordered, the Kraftwork, may honestly be the best sandwich I have ever tasted.  I am hooked.  They make their own sauerkraut with red cabbage which is to die for. Pickled green onions and other veggies are all made in house.  The result on the sandwich is fantastic, beating the hell out of the dill pickle relish we normally find between bread.  I do want to try other trucks but I need to go back to the Juice Well to taste more of the dazzling creative specialties they are making right around the corner.  To complicate matters I found a Colombian restaurant near here that had a super long waiting list for lunch. The Colombians serve arepas, and even if they are not exactly Venezuelan style, I love me some arepas.  I have to find a time when Casa Colombia is not overflowing with customers.  I was really thinking TexMex, but there is more exciting food to eat around here that we don’t have in Tucson.  I have my work cut out for me as gourmet taster.
