Food on the Move

FishCat Cafe in Alpine, Texas

A horse trailer sake bar in a small Texas town. Of course.

Robin Babb didn't know what sort of late night dining she was expecting to find in Alpine, Texas, but she certainly wasn’t expecting a Japanese fusion food truck with horse trailer sake bar.
This young maiden is no match for this criminally large turkey leg.

Chowtown Restaurant Guide

At some point down the line Thai food became synonymous with comfort food for me. It was my family’s favorite dining out cuisine when I was young, and now I have a lot of good nostalgia wrapped up in the smell of lemongrass and curry. Tom kha gai, papaya salad and pad see ew are my go-to orders when I’m sick or just craving something warming and familiar, so I’ve visited most of the Thai spots in town to find some of my favorites of each. That GrubHub bill is getting a little out of control at this point, honestly.

Here’s a few of my favorite spots to order Thai in the Duke City. May they bring you many spicy tears and great evenings.
