My wife and I - in Austin for a wedding - found this by chance on Sunday afternoon and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was terrific! Don't be put off by the initial appearance of the food court! I had a goat platter with rice and cabbage, and my wife had a veggie burger - both ordered moderately spicy.... More

Wasota is part of a very nice and pleasant food truck patio. I tried the goat meet dish, and gotta say the cook was very kind, and the portion was quite large. However, be careful if you do not like spicy food (like me): even if I ask for it to be mild, it was still quite spicy for my... More

This restaurant popped up so I visited and got take out. I used to live in Baltimore so I'm quite familiar with West African cuisine. This food superseded my expectations. Don't let the food truck fool you, I was shocked by the quality of the food preparation. The seasoning was absolutely delicious. The Egusi Soup with Fufu was my choice... More

Great African food truck on East 11th in Austin. There are a variety of dishes including vegetarian and vegan options. I had a platter of vegetables and it was great. The owner is awesome and service is great. This is a pretty awesome food truck that should not be missed.

Wasota has moved to East 11th Street. It is in Kenny Dorham's backyard, which is a hidden gem. I have eaten there twice and both times had delicious food that is different than other trailers and restaurants I have been to. I also enjoyed talking to the cook. I am sorry I cannot tell you his name.

Wasota African Cuisine was a food truck that I was more than excited to visit during my time in Austin. The man working the truck was extremely friendly and provided good service. Prices of the plates range from roughly $5-$15 depending on what you get. I got a plate without meat and it was very worth the price, but the... More

We had a hard time finding this place to try it. Seemed like this area may have more customers at other times, but it was Friday evening and just a few people out and about. We ordered right away and food takes a few minutes to prepare. For Austin, it seemed like there should have been some live music, but... More

We love this food truck! The service is fantastic - And so is the food. We have had beef, chicken, and goat dishes and every time it was spot on. It is our go to Sunday lunch place. The spicy sauce used on the dishes has just the right amount of heat and an incredible flavor. And I promise you... More
