It's no secret that we (and the rest of Austin) looooove The Peached Tortilla. What started out as one of Austin's most unique and successful food trailers finally went brick and mortar recently in Allandale. We've been chomping at the bit to get up there and try out their new, more expansive menu. And it did not disappoint! We loved the atmosphere, experienced awesome service, and drooled heavily over each plate that came out.

One of the best things about The Peached Tortilla's new restaurant is that they make the "shared plates" concept affordable. We're sick of seeing restaurants describe themselves as "shared plates" when they really mean that you need to be prepared to spend $30-40 per person. A shared plates restaurant shouldn't mean that each person should order 3-4 plates at $12-15 per plate. The Peached Tortilla makes sharing easy and affordable, and we really love them for that! 

Check out some of our faves from our recent visit. We highly suggest you visit soon!

The Cocktail Program
So many good drinks, so little time. Pictured above are the Roppongi Gimlet and The Armory, but there are other great cocktails to choose from, as well. If cocktails aren't your style, there's also a good selection of beer, wine, and a whole (huge) whiskey menu!

"Bachan" Pickles $5
This starter includes japanese sesame pickles, house kimchi, and peach pickled cauliflower. It'll make your mouth pucker, and it's perfect to snack on before or in between dishes.

Charred Brussels Sprouts $6
These bomb Brussels sprouts are made with bacon jam (yep, BACON jam), parmesan, and lemon oil. While they might not be the healthiest way you've ever had this vegetable, they're well worth the calories.

Crispy Umami Chicken Wings $9
These chicken wings knocked us away. They're messy and crunchy and savory. You get 3-4 per order, and they're pretty large, so this is a great appetizer or shared plate. They come with wet wipes, so no need to worry about the mess. Super delicious!

Thai Chop Chop Salad $10
The name of this dish is adorable, and the flavors and textures are awesome. This salad is made with chopped napa, fried tofu, green apple, fried shallots, peanuts, fresno chiles, watermelon radish, thai vinaigrette, fish sauce caramel, and herbs. It's crunchy and refreshing, and the perfect complement to some of The Peached Tortilla's more savory and sauce dishes.

Malaysian Laksa Bowl $14
This tummy warming bowl of poached shrimp, Japanese noodles, curry seafood broth, bean sprouts, and a 45 minute egg will make you want to lick the bowl when you're done.

Southern Fun $13
We couldn't resist a noodle bowl, and this one comes with braised brisket, kale, bean sprouts, and wide rice noodles. The restaurant's brisket (and pork belly) are dry rubbed and braised for over three and a half hours, low and slow. You can taste the difference! You'll wish you had leftovers of this (but you won't) because it's the perfect late night snack.

Asian Movie Night $8
We couldn't manage to snap a pic that would do this dessert justice, so you'll just have to trust us on this one. This insanely delicious dessert is made of popcorn ice cream, Asian caramel, and rice pus. It's so creative, and it's also the perfect combo of sweet and salty. 

Singapore Fling $7
This dessert was a little more on the mellow side, which is great after such a flavorful meal. Coconut tapioca, palm sugar syrup, grilled asian pear, and lime zest make a subtle, creamy combo.

Banana Nutella Spring Rolls $7
Can you ever go wrong with nutella, banana, coconut whipped cream, and powdered sugar? The answer is no. We loved these and fought over the last one.

On our next visit, we can't wait to try all of the tacos and the JapaJam Burger!
