"Ok, kids, listen up. A TACO is the same as a sandwich. A sandwich is ANY bread with your choice of fillings. A TACO, is a tortilla, CORN or FLOUR, with your choice of filling. Got it? Good! Now go and be confused no more." - Tu Mama Mexicana

What does a Michelin-starred chef who's spoken of in such terms as "[might be] the best chef in New York" and "one of the most controversial cooks in town" eat when he's away from his kitchen?

Last night, Paul Liebrandt, subject of director Sally Rowe's new documentary "A Matter of Taste" stepped away from the SXSW fray to chow at Lockhart, Texas stalwart Black's Barbecue. While Liebrandt is known for his artful, on-the-edge cuisine at his New York City restaurant Corton, today, he's not in pursuit of the hautest bites in town. He's hungry for one thing: a really good taco.

Chef, your table is ready. It just might be in a parking lot. In the comments below, help us guide Chef Liebrandt to the very best trucks, trailers and taquerias in town.

Stayed tuned for more from Paul Liebrandt and director Sally Rowe and head to What's Next for full coverage from SXSW.

Here’s what’s on the menu.

AUSTIN (CNNMoney) - A crowded, sprawling event is the perfect place to peddle an app that lets you cut through noise and find exactly the right thing at the right time. Enter Foodspotting.

It's built around the idea of discovery. After a trip to Japan, Foodspotting founder and CEO Alexa Andrzejewski returned to San Francisco craving some of the cuisine she'd discovered on the road.

"There was no way to search for a specific dish," she said. "I couldn't get out of my head the idea that it'd be awesome to turn on my phone and discover good food."

Foodspotting became one of the buzzy startups that emerged from the fray at South by Southwest (SXSW) in 2010. A year later, the app now has more than 700,000 iPhone users.
