Former Vietnamese food truck and current pop-up Pink Bellies will soon have a new home on King Street. “It’s been quite some time that we’ve been working on our upcoming location,” writes owner Thai Phi, “and we just finalized our lease today! I’m really excited to share the news.”

Phi and his crew will set up shop in the Hoffler Place student apartment complex at 595 King Street. Pink Bellies has a planned opening date of March 2020.

“We chose the location for a few key reasons,” say Phi, “It’s a perfect fit for our target market, and it‘s on the perfect location on King Street right outside of the normal hustle and bustle of things. The amount of natural lighting in the space allows for our interior design to flourish, and it’s the ideal setting for late night service.”

Ever since departing from food hall Workshop last year, Phi has been in pop-up and research mode for his Vietnamese restaurant. What started as a food truck led to an instillation at Workshop, then it was a pop-up at Tapio, and now fans can find Phi at Edmund’s Oast Brewing Company on Tuesdays.
