For true foodies, the excitement of finding a new food truck is a thrill like no other, and Charleston is filled with these fun, mobile eateries. If you’re looking for someplace to grab a quick bite, you can find these trucks roaming the streets of downtown, hanging out in Marion Square at the Saturday Farmers Market, or parked up by Folly Beach. Be sure to check the websites before seeking out any particular truck to make sure you know where they’ll be that day.
In the last few years, the rising popularity of Vietnamese cuisine has spawned authentic restaurants throughout the city. When in need of a classic banh mi sandwich, Charleston eateries CO, Bon Banh Mi, and Pink Bellies serve up tasty options. For pho lovers, CO is the place to go with a menu offering seven different soup options and a whole section of traditional noodle dishes like Hanoi noodles and spicy udon. Anyone in search of a truly unique dining experience will want to head to sister restaurants Xiao Bao Biscuit or Tu, which dish out pan-Asian recipes that are a fusion of Vietnamese recipes and techniques mixed with other Asian traditions as well as Latin and American influences.
