“Street Foods” Parks in Charleston


Chrys Rynearson

Street Foods “mobile kitchen” has arrived in Charleston to serve up dishes with local, organic ingredients. Business partners, Adam Howard and Christopher Chappell, can be spotted slinging Indian, Vietnamese, Ethiopian and other ethnic foods at various locations and times around town. Find them Thursday through Sunday at the corner of King and Mary Streets from 10 p.m. until 3 a.m. and Storehouse Row (corner of Turnball Ave. and Noisette Blvd.) Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.

A recent article in the Post & Courier Preview highlighted some of the items sold, like citrus marinated chicken salad with squash, fresh artichokes and heirloom tomatoes, pork-fried rice with Asian vegetables and steamed dumplings, Vietnamese Banh mi sandwich with fish sauce, cilantro, pickled vegetables, lemon grass and coriander on baguette with pate and mayonnaise. All menu items are constantly changing depending on the local produce they have that day.

Howard attended the Culinary Institute of America in New York City, where he was exposed to street cart vendors serving ethnic foods. He then tested the idea in Charleston before deciding to take the idea full-time recently.

Join the Street Foods group on Facebook and follow them on Twitter (@streetfoodsllc) to find out where they will pop up next! This is a great new addition to the Charleston culinary scene.
