BURO reporter Steve Cook recently caught up with Wat Zab Thai Food trailer owner Pensiri Rios (nickname: Jenny):

BURO: How long has Wat Zab Thai Food been around and how did you come up with the name?

JENNY:  It all started 3 years ago when my mother-in-law and I came up with the name Wat Zab Thai Food.   ZAB means tasty, spicy, and delicious in Thai!  We’ve been in business in San Marcos for 3 years.

BURO: Why open a trailer on BURO?

JENNY:  I really wanted to share my mother-in-law’s 30 years of cooking experience and fabulous Thai recipes with the people of Austin!  What better place to do that than on BURO?!!

BURO:  What’s your favorite dish at Wat Zab Thai Food trailer?

JENNY:  That’s a tough question because everything’s good!  If I had to pick a favorite it would be our Pad Thai Noodle with Yellow Curry.  Its fresh and super tasty!

Burnet Marketplace coming to BURO!

The developers of the new Burnet Marketplace mixed-use project have created a 90-second video that highlights some of the exciting things to see and do on Burnet Road. The video captures the dynamic mix of longtime favorites and new hot spots that coexist in the Burnet corridor and make it one of the city’s most attractive areas.

When it opens in 2015, Burnet Marketplace will offer 344 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, all featuring state-of-the-art appliances, upscale finishes, and clean, contemporary interior design. The project’s amenities will include three expansive courtyards, a sunny resort-style pool, and a 1,900-square-foot fitness center, which is up to three times larger than fitness facilities at competing projects.

The project will offer walkable access to Burnet Road’s most talked-about new restaurants and bars, and the reinvented Pour House Pub will be right downstairs in the development’s own ground-floor restaurant and retail space.

For more information and updates, visit the Burnet Marketplace website, or follow the project on Facebook or Twitter.

Teriyaki Madness to open on BURO!

by Martin Rodriguez – Teriyaki Madness Austin

The Teriyaki Madness restaurant concept marries fast casual to nutritious and healthy Asian Teriyaki food. It’s very first Texas location will open at 7301 Burnet Road in the next few weeks!

Teriyaki Madness specializes in chef-inspired custom crafted rice bowls and plates, with an addicting homemade secret sauce. The restaurant utilizes domestic growers and delivers healthy cuisine using only fresh vegetables and proteins, such as never-frozen chicken and the finest beef.

Being a native of Seattle I wanted to bring the flavor of the Pacific Northwest to Austin. Today, if you search the word Teriyaki in Seattle, you will find at least 100 restaurants with “Teriyaki” in their name. It’s truly ubiquitous, like the BBQ of Texas.

Teriyaki Madness has something for everyone. If you don’t know Teriyaki, just think grilled chicken, with sweet or spicy sauce, rice and a side salad. It’s for adults or kids looking for a fresh and healthy meal, families who enjoy large portions and those who lead an active lifestyle seeking lean meal choices.

BURO Restaurant Review: Noble Pig

by Karen Stitt, BURO Fan

Noble Pig on Burnet RoadI’ve eaten at Noble Sandwiches Central on Burnet Road twice this week – and had to tell you about some of the incredible food I’ve tasted.

This morning for breakfast, I had the ginger/apple waffle with some scrambled eggs cooked with green onions.  The ginger was a nice addition and the cooked apple on top added a more natural sugar – letting you decide how sweet, based on the syrup you added.  The eggs were light and a little bit buttery – I’m guessing the green onions were sauteed before the eggs were added…yum.  If that wasn’t enough, I ordered the Biscuits and Gravy on the side – it sounded too good to pass up – and really was out of this world.  The biscuit and gravy, the sausage and gravy, the gravy – these might be the best biscuits and gravy I’ve ever had.  Did I mention the gravy?

I love sandwiches and seek out a good unique sandwich now and then. I had the chance to try the Mushroom Reuben – a few days ago – which is one of the best Ruebens I’ve had in a long time.  The fact that it’s a vegetarian offering, just makes it a bigger plus – I never noticed the meat was missing.  The grilled bread loaded with mushrooms, melted cheese, and this wonderfully fresh sauerkraut was one of the best new sandwiches I’ve had in a really long time.

Can’t wait to try more.  Another BURO establishment I’ll be eating at again soon!
