Three new concession options bring creative flavors to the airport.
AUSTIN, Texas – The Peached Tortilla featuring Southern comfort food with an Asian flair, and JuiceLand with its array of fruit and vegetable beverages and vegan cuisine have joined the food and beverage scene at Austin’s airport. Additionally, serving locally crafted beer and well as national brands and wine is the new Hippies & Hops bar. All three recently opened in the newly renovated east food park of the Barbara Jordan Terminal, across from Gate 8.
“It’s exciting to bring these very distinctive and innovative Austin food and beverage offerings to passengers,” said Terry Mahlum, Regional Vice President for Delaware North which operates the east food park at Austin’s airport.
The Peached Tortilla is known for its Asian-Southern U.S. inspired dining options. Popular menu items from the local retro eatery include a rendition of chow fun (Southern Fun), Malaysian laksa, charred brussels and pork belly buns. Having started in Austin as a food truck in 2010, The Peached Tortilla now makes its airport debut.
JuiceLand offers a variety of fruit and vegetable smoothies, juices and cold-pressed juice bottles, juice shots, cleanses and hot drinks. The JuiceLand concept began in Austin in 2001, but the restaurant as it is known today officially began in 2011. The Austin original also serves plant-based and vegan grab & go meals, which include salads, wraps and snacks.
The Hippies and Hops bar feature local beers from Live Oak Brewing Company as well as other nationally recognized beer brands and wine by the glass. Live Oak Brewing Company has been an Austin favorite since 1997. Known for its delicious lagers and ales, Live Oak employs old-world brewing styles.
