How did this escape our scrutiny?

Smithsonian, the magazine, website, art museum and now-documenter of food trucks, hailed Paul Qui’s East Side King as one of USA’s twenty best way back in February of this year.

We’re a mite late but it still bears mentioning.

The long form piece is authored by 2 {!} writers and at 3+ paragraphs it’s easy to see why. Neither Megan Gambino nor Aviva Shen could have carried such a heavy load. Best to divide the responsibilities so neither scribe would get knuckled under by the effort.

Of course they pass most of the heavy lifting off to a writer for Serious Eats who gushes quite profoundly about the beet fries {creamy….soft!}.

We love East Side King. Here’s an old piece we unearthed via the wayback machine http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2011/11/12/Austin-Daily-Photo-Paul-Qui-Is-The-Eastside-King-And-Very-Well-Could-Win-Top-Chef-Texas
