Your time at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport just got a little tastier (and healthier). Asian-Southern fusion restaurant Peached Tortilla and JuiceLand officially open today at Gate 7 at the airport. Peached Tortilla will serve the fusion tacos, bowls and burger that has made their brick-and-mortar and truck locations such a hit, and JuiceLand will bring organic juice, smoothies and vegan grab-and-go food to travelers. No official hours for the businesses have been announced, but with Peached Tortilla getting into the breakfast taco game for the first time and JuiceLand known for their juices and smoothies, expect morning to evening hours.
“I have always had the dream of putting Peached Tortilla into the airport. It’s been a goal of mine since before I even moved to Austin. To me, your brand has arrived when you open at the airport,” Peached Tortilla owner Eric Silverstein said. “We are tied to other tremendous local brands like JuiceLand, Tacodeli, East Side Pies and Amy’s. A manager referred to the new area of the airport we are in as Austin 2.0. In many ways it is. When you land at the airport you now get a sense for what Austin is all about: unique food concepts with an attention towards taste and an overall experience.”
The two locally owned businesses join fellow Austin businesses Annie’s Cafe & Bar, Maudie’s Tex-Mex, Second Bar + Kitchen and others. Additionally, East Side Pies announced yesterday on Facebook that they would be joining the local food options at the airport, with plans to open in the terminal early next year.
