If you’re not yet tired of Austin restaurants touting their “organic” or “local” cuisine, then you might just enjoy The Local Yolk, an East Austin food cart that serves fried egg sandwiches.  I have developed an affinity for food carts, partly because I’m a sucker for kitsch outdoor decor and partly because I think there is just a little more love in the food.  Owner Shelley Speer started up The Local Yolk after she “fell in love” with the egg (her words, not mine) to promote wellness by serving up fresh healthy sandwiches.

We here at Austin Eat Cetera have always had a profound inclination toward the art of the sandwich. There just seems to be no better – or cheaper – way to get all of your favorite foods into a compact space in a sociably acceptable manner. Austin has a great selection of sandwich places, but when an establishment has a name so blunt as The Sandwich Joint on Burnet Road and 51st Street, I just had to check it out.

After my thoroughly enjoyable yet highly caloric afternoon at the Gypsy Picnic, I felt the need for a detox.  There truly is no better way to spend a Saturday than scarfing down Moroccan chicken followed by cake balls followed by a barbecue sandwich followed by a fried avocado cone but a girl’s got to know when enough is enough.  I decided to spend my week eating as many organic, local products as possible to start my health kick.  After looking into my options (and believe me, Austin has plenty), I came across Conscious Cravings, a vegetarian food cart in West Campus that I happened to miss at Gypsy Picnic in my quest for only the sinfully delicious.

Somehow unbeknownst to us, we here at Austin Eat Cetera have embarked on a search of sorts for the city’s best sandwich.  After we realized the majority of our posts focused on the multi-layered things, we decided to dedicate a new tag for use in our hunt for Austin’s tastiest sandwich.  In a city where healthy meets delicious more often than not, we figured it was a worthwhile undertaking.

The newest addition to our must-try roster?  Lucky’s Puccias.

Sandwich Search: One of Austin’s best kept sandwich secrets

The Chicken & Eggplant Sandwich at Food Heads

We here at Austin Eat Cetera are constantly on the lookout for the perfect sandwich.  While there’s definitely no shortage in amazing local sandwich joints, my favorite has to be Food Heads.  It’s easy to miss because it’s located in a house, tucked away from the drag just north of the UT campus on 34th street.  I’m a sucker for quirky outdoor furniture and crafty decor so the kitsch feel of the place made me feel right at home and ready for a good meal.
