Flying Carpet - Moroccan Soul Foud


Do not let the cold weather or rain keep you hungry and bored! This place has a great indoor eating and lounging area! It is two delicious food trailers (Flying Carpet and Regal Ravioli), but with the comforts of home and a fun gang of friends. Also remember to BYOB with plenty of your favorite beer, wine, or cocktails. ---


This is the same location as our White Elephant Gift Exchange and Regal Ravioli event, but now we are going back for The Flying Carpet's delicious Moroccan food! If you attended the last event, you know how much fun this place is, and they have a great indoor dining space to keep you warm. Bring plenty of your favorite beer or wine (and homemade bourbon!), and come enjoy an evening of fun and food with friends!


A little bit about The Flying Carpet from their website:


A passion for flavorful food and family inspired the genesis of The Flying Carpet. Owners Maria & Abderrahim Souktouri merged their love of Moroccan food, a desire to eat quality fare economically, and Austin’s street food scene to open a food trailer such as they had encountered in their travels to Morocco. The food served at The Flying Carpet is all natural. That means premium everything; from organic vegetables, to vegetarian-fed chemical/hormone-free eggs and meat. The Flying Carpet’s motto is ‘food translates’, because Maria & Abderrahim believe that sitting down to a meal with friends and family is one of the most important things we do in life. Food is a language we all speak. “We are neither chefs nor restaurateurs, we are just people who live to serve, eat and make food for the ones we love. We hope to see you at the trailer; it is much like our home: loud, warm and full of love!”


If Moroccan fare is not your thing, you can also get amazing food from Regal Ravioli, as both trailers share the same venue.

    Nice event! This was my first meetup with this group and I enjoyed meeting everyone. The Moroccan food was amazing...and I took Jay's advice and ordered some ravioli to go from Regal Ravioli to have for lunch tomorrow! Looking forward to the next event!

    The trailers can not be seen from the road. It is on Oltorf, less than a block east of South First Street, next to the Church's Chicken. There is a lit sign saying food trailer parking. Go in the little driveway and you will see the trailers in the back. See y'all tonight!

    Hi, I am wondering if anyone can please share with me where one can park for this event? Street parking? I just moved here last summer and am not a fantastic any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. :) Plus, since I am driving from North of Austin - do you think if I leave around 6:30 I should be OK? Sorry for all the questions....

      As Chris noted, there is a lot directly at the place. If that happens to be full, there is street parking within a block. If you leave north Austin around 6:30, that should be plenty of time. Also, we are a very laid-back group; the event start time is approximate and people come/go whenever it works for them. Remember to BYOB - a bottle or six-pack of whatever you like.
