Followers of North Charleston darling Jackrabbit Filly (4628 Spruill Avenue, North Charleston) were thrilled to find out owners Shuai and Corrie Wang were planning a second restaurant serving Chinese-style barbecue. Named King BBQ, the new spot will be located at 2029 Carver Avenue, but until the opening, the Wangs will host pop-ups at Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co., starting Tuesday, August 23, and happening every Tuesday through the year or until their second restaurant opens.
The Wangs passed along the King BBQ menu to Eater, which includes whole roast duck, Sichuan pork rinds, five spice roast chicken, hot mustard potato salad, and more.
Shuai has stated that the inspiration for King BBQ is Chinese barbecue with a side of North Carolina style barbecue, so pork shoulder and red slaw sits on the menu with smoked Chinese sausage and jasmine rice.
The King BBQ pop-up lunch is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and dinner will run from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. or until it sells out — and if the previous Jackrabbit Filly pop-ups are any indication, it will sell out early. Corrie says that once the kitchen gets the hang of the menu, customers should expect specials each week.
