I’m not normally a fan of tofu, but this was super tasty. And the vegetables and spices were great. Everything good!

Make sure to try with the spicy sauce. I forgot to add the sauce and it does make a difference. Sufficient mix of rice and vegetables.

Sort of like Chipolte but a little spicier options along with their signature french fry option. I prefer their north location off Burnet Rd...but this one is definitely more "Austin"

A nice stop for lunch. No seating so only take away. A few options, all good, but not a robust menu. Worth the downtown lunch rush.

I never knew what I was missing until I tried kimchi fries during ACL. Now, I crave them. Who knew topping some fried potato with caramelized kimchi, sriracha, cheddar and monterey jack, onions, cilantro, sesame seeds and 'magic sauce' would create a flavor-explosion. Who knew...More

Korean and Mexican food. Chef Aron Sanchez recommended the kimchi fries on the food network website. I'm not sure why this isn't already up there. It's very popular.
