If there's one spot that sums up the first wave of Austin's trailer boom, it's undoubtedly East Side King. Founded in 2009 by Paul Qui and Motoyasu Utsunomiya as a more casual side project from their work at Uchi and Uchiko, the trailer behind Liberty adorned with a psychedelic mural by Japanese punk rocker Peelander Yellow has spawned a pan-Asian empire of creative bar grub across the city. Although there's now a brick and mortar, as well as several other offshoots, the original is still the best, thanks to now-classic dishes like the roasted pork belly Poor Qui buns, Thai chicken karage, and beet fries.
