East Side King

Who would have thought that behind the Hole In The Wall in the West Campus would be a cool little restaurant filled with mouth watering Asian food with a big twist. This weekend I had lunch at East Side King. This joint definitely reinforces the theme of "Keep Austin Weird".  It has graffiti murals all over the outside walls and when you walk in the lighting is dim and it has a bar like feel to it. There is also an outside seating area with picnic tables that roll out right on to Guadalupe. The famous Chef Paul Qui and his partner created all the appetizing dishes on the menu. I had one of their Ramen bowls (I mean I am a college kid so Ramen is right up my ally). The chicken tortilla Ramen was an amazing explosion of Japanese, Thai, and TexMex all in one big bowl. It looked as awesome as it tasted (the photo above I took before eating). There are plenty of crazy unheard of dishes that will excite your taste buds and blow your mind. In the mood to try something new? Get your butt down to East Side King located at 2538 Guadalupe St.
