What is better than fried dough? Fried dough with a maple glaze topped with bacon!
Before the economy collapsed, I was working with a guy that was trying to start a sorbet business out of a trailer. Back when Hey Cupcake was only in 1 Airstream and you could only get Chicken Cones during ACL. So I really understand the logistics and complications of these little gems that have become so prolific, especially on South Congress and Lamar. And gourmet trailer food is just so damn Austin.
Gordough’s is located 1219 S. Lamar between Barton Springs and Oltorf next to a couple of other trailers that also look interesting but I was there for one thing only, the Flying Pig. Gordough’s serves up huge, fresh fried yeast doughnuts with your choice of toppings for $3.25 plus $1 for meat. The Flying Pig has a thin maple glaze and is topped with several slices of bacon. DEE-LISH-US. I think I’ll try the Porkey’s next time- Canadian bacon, cream cheese, and jalapeno jelly.
