Austin Daily Press Rolls Out New Menu Offerings

Full Disclosure: I recently attended a media tasting from Austin Daily Press. All opinions are my own.


I recently had the pleasure of tasting some of Chef Reed Faitak\’s creations from Austin Daily Press. The wildly popular trailer expanded to a brick-and-mortar serving their innovative yet approachable cuisine. The tasting took place at the very cool neighboring bar the Wheel and Chef Reed Faitak showcased new menu offerings to include catering and brunch. 

August Sandwich Special at Austin Daily Press

We started off our culinary journey with the August sandwich special. The delicious sandwich has eggplant and a goat cheese \”latke\”, sweet corn & spicy jalapeño custard, fresh arugula, pickled green beans, delightful plum & basil jam and savory confit duck rillet (optional).
Fruit & Root Salad at Austin Daily Press
One of my favorite dishes of the evening was the light and refreshing fruit & root salad. This gorgeous salad has fresh cucumber, mouth-watering watermelon, golden beets topped with queso Oaxaca and a delightful spicy lime vinaigrette.

The  appetizing panino with roasted mushrooms, queso Oaxaca, rich mole and pickled onions is a hardy vegetarian option.
