The wildly successful food trailer experiment of "hill country cuisine" chef Jeff Blank, The Mighty Cone is everything a food trailer should be: Hand-held food, simple menu, and one dazzling novelty -- a "hot n' crunchy" breading made from corn flakes and red chiles, encasing chicken, shrimp, and/or avocado pieces tucked in a warm tortilla. Blank brought the cone to ACL festival in 2002, and officially inaugurated it as a food trailer in 2009, to the collective ecstasy of Austin foodies.
How do they make this so addictive and filling and hot and crispy all at once? I like to get cones with chicken and avocado. So yummy.
So delicious! – the venison cone is addicting, I'm going to get another one this weekend!
Citysearch Editorial Review – What is typically found on the boardwalk on the New Jersey Shore is available out of a sweet little food truck in Austin: food in a cone. The crunchy conesconsist of sesame seeds, corn flakes, almonds, sea salt, sugar and arbol chili flakes. Cones can contain chicken, shrimp, avocado or a combo of any of the above. Add-ons are simple, just cheese or jalapeno--or more avocado. All-natural, organic sliders (beef or veggie) are topped with a secret ancho pepper sauce and come with a side of Hudson's gourmet fries.
