WAT ZAB Thai Food Truck Review: The San Marcos Food Blog

Today, The San Marcos Food Blog will be reviewing a seriously delicious local Food Trailer that is serving some of the best Thai food in Central Texas.


WAT ZAB Thai Food Trailer opened up in downtown San Marcos in March of 2013 and they are currently serving up some insanely good and incredibly authentic Thai Food.

Already, they are gaining quite a good reputation and their customer base is growing all of the time. I have heard from countless people that WAT ZAB is among the best Thai Food they have had in Texas.

Having traveled a decent amount throughout Asia, including Thailand, I have developed a real appreciation as well as a regular craving for Thai Food.

There is something about the focus and combination of spices and the balance of everything in Thai Cuisine that I admire so much.WAT ZAB truly does justice to this wonderful flavor profile and I cannot thank them enough for setting up in San Marcos.

Everytime I eat this food, I am taken back to so many memories from my travels in such a unique way. I form so many associations with food and this is a strong example of that.

This place is dead-on with their spices and honestly I have loved everything I have tried.

The Menu successfully features many options and everything here is good, and I mean EVERYTHING.



For my first visit, I tried the Panang Curry and the Chicken Satay.. I really was very very impressed. The Panang had the perfect mix of Thai spices and was surprisingly fresh.. I have been all over Asia and have eaten a ton of Panang and this really stood up to everything I have tasted.. such bright and fresh flavors.. It had a nice bite to it and was so balanced and the Chicken Satay was prepared perfectly. The chicken was seasoned so well and was just bursting with flavor..

There was definitely a lot of care and detail put into each dish and I can tell that these Chefs put much thought into their execution. The Food was out in less than 6 minutes and was hot and delicious.

WAT ZAB Thai Food Trailer is Located at 312. East Hopkins at The Hitch: A Mobile Eatery

Their hours of operation currently are Mon – Sat: 11:00 am – 8:00 pm


I definitely became more and more infatuated with this Food Trailer as my review progressed.. It really is something special in San Marcos..
