Catch the Peached Tortilla at Films for the Forest: June 16th

Eric & Tiffany during SXSW
If you haven't tried the Peached Tortilla at their regular locations, here is an opportunity to try gourmet trailer food at a swanky street party in the Rainey District.  The Peached Tortilla truck will be posted outside of local NPO, Rainforest Partnership, during their annual event: Films for the Forest.  This film festival, free to the public, showcases international short films.  This year's theme is Breath of the Planet.  Entries are judged by film professionals Rick Linklater, Ed Begley Jr., Paul Steckler, & Elizabeth Avellan.  In addition to great food and films, guests will experience music, art, panel discussions and more - all in the street!  This event supports local efforts to protect rainforests in Peru and Ecuador. 

When: June 16th  6p-10p
Where: 505 Willow St. ATX/78701
Web: www.filmsfortheforest.org/ or www.rainforestpartnership.org
It's FREE, but RSVP here: http://filmsfortheforest2011.eventbrite.com

More on the food - the Peached Tortilla is a fusion concept that blends Asian food and Southern Comfort Cuisine.  Owner Eric Silverstein spent his youth in both Japan and Georgia.  As such, his food concept was born.  His delectable sliders are served on Hawaiian sweet rolls ($2.50).  My current favorite is the Pad Thai taco ($2.25) which includes chicken or tofu sauteed in traditional pad thai sauce, bean sprouts, peanuts and a lime wedge.  Check out the menu online: http://thepeachedtortilla.com/menu
