Our owner, Bob, grew up in a Laotian concentrated area of Dallas, TX (Oak Cliff) and spent countless hours looking over his mother’s shoulder in the kitchen, admiring her careful cooking. Through her, his passion for the culinary arts began to grow. It eventually evolved into SXSE Food Co., which blends Southern American and Southeast Asian flavors and techniques. Here, we provide uniquely familiar yet modernized dishes. Our latest venture, the Pha-aek food truck, opened with the goal of providing authentic Lao cuisine – something that’s hard to find here in Austin, TX. With a bite of our traditional-yet-gourmet dishes, our customers embark on a culinary journey like none other. In 2019, SXSE Food Co competed against 29 other food trucks in Trucklandia and was voted best food truck and 1st place winner.
