Popular food truck the Peached Tortilla plans to open a restaurant at 5520 Burnet Rd. later this year. Owners say they will serve urban Asian & Southern comfort food with a modern twist.

What does that mean exactly? Well, the truck has served banh mi burritos, crunch whitefish tacos and Chinese barbecue rice bowls, so that should give some indication. The Peached Tortilla was a hit with me last summer during the Austin City Limits Festival with their Thai Summer Salad, which featured prominent peanut flavors, slivers of red peppers, cabbage slaw for crunch and a hint of sweetness from corn.
