Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting Lakana and Justin the owners/chefs of DEE DEE Thai food trailer. This husband and wife duo are serving up some of the best Thai food in Austin. DEE DEE food trailer opened last week on east Cesar Chavez and is quickly earning rave reviews. Lakana learned her passion for serving cuisine with the freshest, healthiest and best ingredients while cooking with her mother and great-grandmother while she was growing up in Northern Thailand countryside. Lucky for us she is now sharing her delicious traditional Northern Thai street food just in time for SXSW!
|Moo Ping at DEE DEE Food Trailer|
We started off our exceptional culinary experience with Moo Ping which was absolutely a crowd favorite! Customers have their choice of either 2 or 5 perfectly marinated, mildly sweet pork skewers with a side of perfectly cooked sticky rice and spicy fish sauce. Trust me, go with the 5 skewers because 2 will just leave you wanting for more.
|Pad Kapow at DEE DEE Food Trailer|
The Pad Kapow is the ultimate hangover food served in a hardy portion of incredibly flavorful stir fried pork, Thai basil with a side of delightful aromatic jasmine rice, slices of cold cucumber and topped proper with a fried egg.
|Larb Moo at DEE DEE Food Trailer|
The Larb Moo is an explosion of amazing flavors that we just could not get enough of! This incredible dish has spicy minced pork with Thai basil, brightly flavored with zesty lime, fresh cucumber slices, cilantro and sticky rice.
|Mango Sticky Rice and Thai Tea at DEE DEE Food Trailer|
The vibrant Sticky Mango dish is a traditional Thai dessert with slices of ripe mango bursting with flavor on top of rice and drizzled with sweet coconut milk dressing. And nothing pairs better with their eats than a fabulous and gorgeous Thai Tea.
