[embed-1] What started as a humble little fest with five trucks and 500 customers in 2011 has grown to a highly anticipated annual event. The ninth annual Charleston Food Truck Festival spans two days, this Sat. Jan. 25-Sun. Jan. 26, with more than 25 food trucks from around the southeast serving up everything from donuts to sushi. The free-to-attend festival takes place in North Charleston at 1681 McMillan Ave. from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Participating trucks include local faves like Roti Rolls, Diggity Doughnuts, Momo, Dashi, Pita Stroller, Immortal Lobster, Tamashii, and Mally Racks Garlic Crabs. Visiting trucks include Chazito's Latin Cuisine, The Gnosh Pit, Gekko Sushi, and Molly's Fish and Chips.
In addition to the eclectic mix of cuisines, there will be a beer and wine bar and non-alcoholic bevs, plus free parking and kids activities. The event is also leashed-dog friendly, but be sure to clean up after your pet. Most trucks will accept cash or card, but as always, cash is king.
