You’re not really coming to Old Thousand for classic Chinese dishes cooked by traditional methods and recipes. You’re coming to Old Thousand on East 11th Street to try dishes like smoked brisket fried rice, five-spice churros, and pecan bubble waffles. And while not all of the menu leans into fusion territory, we think that’s when Old Thousand is at its best, particularly when you’re eating it in a new-school dining room playing old school hip hop on the speakers. It’s Chinese food that grew up in Texas, and it’s food that you probably won’t find anywhere outside of Austin. Old Thousand also has a second location on Burnet that offers an expanded takeout menu.
