Featured shop: The DoughCone food truck

The traveling food truck makes stops around Houston, including at Hermann Park and in the Bellaire, Meyerland and West University areas.

Founded by Avneesh Oberoi, the concept centers on a made-from-scratch cinnamon sugar dough cone filled with organic milk ice cream and toppings of the customer’s choice.

The truck also offers water and orange juice, and can make a Mexican Coke float. Coffee is slated to be added to the menu this summer.
