Truck Yard

It doesn’t get more Texan than this, y’all.

As one last summer hurrah, I wanted to check out this cool place I heard about – Truck Yard. Described as “come-as-you-are beer garden & adult playground,” I was excited to try the food truck cuisine and see what the place looked like!

Behold, the yard:

It was a very unique space. The trailer park and retro decor felt very country and Southern. Even as someone born and raised in Texas, I’m not used to the “country life.” Please, I’m a city girl! We don’t ride horses to school, contrary to what several of my college classmates thought Texans do! So for me, this was a very new, exciting experience (not so much for Christina, who went to school even more down south and said everywhere looked like this LOL).

Right, first things first: order food. Of the three food trucks, Christina and I both chose Ssham BBQ, Korean + Hispanic fusion.

Me + my bulgogi burrito

Though it looked good, my burrito tasted pretty mediocre. At least, it didn’t live up to my expectations for Korean fusion food. I couldn’t help but compare it to Seoul Taco (also a Korean fusion food truck) in St. Louis that was once part of my college diet. Now their bulgogi is on point, but I couldn’t say the same for here. The one standout item, though, was the kimcheese fries (forreal)! There’s not a lot of cheese in Asian cuisine, so I was surprised that it’d taste good with kimchi, fries, onion, cilantro, and spicy mayo. What a of smorgasbord of flavors!

We were both up for a bit of exploring after eating all that…

There were so many textures and colors – perfect photography subject matter! Anyone else been somewhere like this, with interesting trinkets and junk everywhere?! I’d love to put places like these on my bucketlist 🙂

There was even a “treehouse” bar – where I went up not for the beer but for the view 😛

Truck Yard was definitely a cool hangout spot. If only it weren’t so far from me! That’s a downside about Texas’s huge size – everything is super sprawled out. But the next time people come visit, I’d probably take them here!

Where was a cool restaurant/eating experience that you’ve had? Any my question earlier about junk collections was real – know of any place with cool knickknacks? I’d imagine it’d be such a fun place to photograph!
