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 Road Austin Texas – BURO!

BURO! Burnet Road in Austin, Texas

Welcome to BURO!  My name is Steve Cook – an Austin native and Editor/Publisher of BURO.  My full-time job is developing websites in Austin.  Having grown up here I spent a lot of time on Burnet Road – shopping, eating, and even going to drive-in movies!

frank-campbell-soco-mayor-austin-texasA little BURO History:  It all started with SOCO – Hipster Haven

I’ve watched Austin grow and change over the years.  I saw South Congress Avenue transform from a sleepy, almost rural lane (complete with hookers at night), into a hustling and bustling sub-community known as SOCO.  I hate to admit it but one of my best friends is the Mayor of SOCO.

Move over SOCO!

BURO!  Like fine wine, it’s time has come.

burnet-road-logoIt’s high time that Austin’s venerable Burnet Road, a.k.a. the Old Burnet Highway, received it’s own acronym – BURO!  We have articles about Burnet Road people, places, businesses & organizations and we feature advertisements from BURO establishments.

I invite you to post a Burnet Road article or story.  If you have a memory of Burnet Road or a business or organiazation on Burnet Road, please tell us about it!
