The Peached Tortilla: Austin's Best Food Truck?
Just two years after being launched, The Peached Tortilla founder and former litigator Eric Silverstein’s Southern-Asian fusion fare garnered him and his catering director Mark Tamiso Eater’s 2011 Austin Food Truck of the Year 2011, and with shout-outs to their brisket and mini crabcake mini sandwiches, a spot on Food & Wine’s 2012 list of the best sliders in America 2012. There’s a fairly long menu of tacos and burritos among other options including riffs on banh mi, Chinese barbecue, and pad thai. And to think, the first aha moment came to Silverstein when one of the partners in his former law firm recounted to him how he was telling his son not to go to law school. "If a partner is telling his son to go into a different field," Silverstein recalled thinking to Austinist, "am I going to enjoy this line of work 10 years from now?" Moral of the story?
