This food truck dishes up more than a half a dozen riffs on grilled cheese, from traditional to Italian meatball and roast beef with gooey provolone. Wash it all done with a kiwi lemonade. Follow them on Twitter to find out where the trailer is parked for the day: @EmojisGCheese.

Central Market South

Established in 1999, Central Market’s second homegrown location absorbed a bit of the South Austin funkiness its location would call for. An even more eclectic calendar than its elder sibling ’s encompasses everything from Western swing and bluegrass to jazz, Latin rock, and whatever it is White Ghost Shivers make so much fun. With that much music, it’s no wonder CM South features live music four days a week, all at no charge.

Guantanamera Cuban Cuisine

Armed with a wealth of cherished family recipes for fresh, home-style Cuban cuisine, the menu's opening salvo may be Masas fritas, or chunks of mojo criollo-marinated pork fried in lard, golden outside and succulent within. Lechon asado gets the same marinade and hours in a slow oven until it gets so tender it melts in your mouth. Pollo al horno is a marinated chicken leg quarter that is roasted with onion and red bell peppers, turning it moist and juicy.
