Friday Food Truck Feature: Gourdough's


As in gourmet doughnuts.
As in a deep fried, smothered with loving goodness, slice of heart attack heaven.
Gourdough's serves up doughnuts... but these are larger than your hand, perfectly deep fried, and generously paired with fresh and delicious toppings both savory and sweet.

Gourdough’s is conveniently located right across from the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar, perfect for a post movie treat if you didn’t fill up on their amazing Once Upon A Time in Mexico salad or the Up in Smoke’d Bacon pizza.

Gourdough’s is beside Trey’s Cuisine and The Odd Duck Farm to Trailer, so there’s something for everyone in the little park. There are lots of outdoor tables, cute hanging lighting and fire pits for cold weather. The park is BYOB so save a little money and bring your own sodas or water bottles. Gourdough’s makes everything to order so expect a little wait, especially if you’re there during peak times.

My recommendations
  • Savory
o Porkey’s- cream cheese, jalapeño jelly, and Canadian bacon. The jalapeño jelly looks weird but the flavor combo is SO GOOD.

o The Flying Pig – maple syrup icing and bacon. Like… lots of bacon.

  • Sweet
    • The Dirty Berry- fudge icing and grilled strawberries. Decadent and delicious- make sure you have something to wash it down!

o Funky Monkey- grilled bananas, cream cheese, and brown sugar topping. The potassium clearly makes this a healthy choice I can feel good about.

My biggest recommendation is that you go with a group and all order different things and pass them around so you can try lots of flavors!

Nom nom nom. Enjoy
