I stumbled upon this place while biking to the Monkey Wrench bookstore. What a fantastic find for a hungry vegan tourist! First off, the prices are super reasonable - about $6 per sandwich! Second, the selection was fantastic, although I caught them during their "greatest hits" week so they may not always offer so much. I was told they will soon be opening a storefront and closing the cart so they were offering their most popular items.

I went with the BBQ jackfruit sandwich for $6 and a pineapple donut hole for $1. The donut hole was pretty disappointing because it tasted nothing like a donut! I'm not even sure it had any flour in it and doubt that it was fried. It tasted like some raw "donut" made up of dates, coconut, and random items thrown in a food processor. No go in my book! The jackfruit sandwich wasn't totally stellar, as it lacked vegan cheese and lettuce, which would have made it complete in my book. That said, jackfruit has been pretty hard to come by (and I travel quite a bit), so Counter Culture gets big points for not only offering it, but serving it up at such a bargain.

I'm not sure when I'll be visiting Austin again but when I do, I plan on stopping by their new storefront.
