Yumé Burger: Bringing Japanese Street Food to Austin

Eric Silverstein opened Yumé Burger in February with the idea of capturing some of the influences from street food he had growing up in Japan while bringing something unique to the Austin food scene. And he is doing just that. It is no surprise how quickly Yumé Burger gained fans after seeing the success he has with The Peached Tortilla trailers.  

Yumé Burger is a roving trailer and I am lucky enough to work at one of their regular lunch time stops on Thursday. I recently tried the Yumé Dog and loved the twist on this all American favorite. Their all beef dogs are topped with wasabi mayonnaise, tonkantsu sauce, nori strips and crispy onion strings.

Yumé serves a mean mean burger. My favorite is the JapaJam which is an all beef burger, with tomato jam with jack cheese, a fried egg, tangy Japanese BBQ sauce, onion strings on a Sweetish Hills bun. 


 The Oishii is tempura whitefish with wasabi slaw and Japanese tartar sauce & pickles. The day I tried it they used Hops & Grains beer in the tempura batter.

They have hand cut fries, hand cut fries with sesame salt and sweet potato fries.  You can order a sauce on the side for dipping.  I recommend ordering the regular hand cut fries with pink sauce.

Yumé Burger makes their rounds at places like the Cedar Park Farmer\’s Market, Star Bar and Draught House. They post their weekly schedule on their website: http://yumeburger.com/.  You can keep up with them on Twitter: https://twitter.com/#!/yumeburger
