North Charleston Latin-Asian fusion restaurant Dashi recently debuted its new Dessert Camper, now serving local ice cream from Cirsea and treats from Camper pastry chef Austin Dubinsky, who also works in pastry at 5Church and Tempest.
“About three weeks ago, I started speaking with Dashi,” said Dubinsky, who transitioned to a job in food in 2018 after working as a nonprofit and political fundraiser. “I saw this as an opportunity to have some creative fun.”
The dessert truck specializes in soft-serve ice cream, with toppings like Thai tea pecans and peach compote. Dubinsky plans to add macaroon toppings to the mix, along with a brownie sundae and homemade waffle cones.
“My first job in food was helping run a food truck, so it’s been fun getting back to that,” Dubinsky said. “There’s so many possibilities right now — we’re just getting started.”
Check out the Dessert Camper outside Dashi (1262 Remount Road) Wednesday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-10 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
