East Side King Now Open in Cedar Park, TX

East Side King Cedar Park, TX

When I bought a home in Cedar Park, TX just over a decade ago I did not anticipate how much our city would grow. I am delighted that within minutes we now have local favorite coffee shops, hip spin studios and delicious eateries. Also about a decade ago, East Side King launched their first food trailer and quickly started popping up at food festivals and opened brick-and-mortars. It is exciting for the area to welcome incredible Central Texas born restaurants like East Side King to the neighborhood!

I previewed the Cedar Park location earlier this week and am impressed with the swift transition. Guests are greeted with recognizable vibrant murals synonymous with East Side King. Their are cozy booths seating, gorgeous wood tables that are perfect for communal and/or family friendly (ahem perfect photo ops my fellow bloggers), bar seating facing the kitchen and a dog friendly patio.

The menu includes ESK OG favorites along with hardier meshi dishes. Notably the menu includes gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options. I recommend the Pork Belly Buns, Pork Belly Meshi, Red Chili Wontons and if you like variety, the Bento Boxes are perfect. I could not get enough of the rich Pork Belly Meshi, spicy wontons and make-you-wanna eat your veggies Beet Fries during our visit!
