Thai Phi, owner and chef of Pink Bellies, started the restaurant as a food truck in downtown Charleston in 2014. It opened to massive success, garnering such awards as Eater’s Hottest Food Trucks in America, Zagat 30 under 30 Charleston, Southern Living’s South’s Best Food Trucks, and Daily Meal’s Top 10 Food Trucks in America for consecutive years. Our food is inspired by our grandma's Vietnamese homecooking in Saigon, directed by the freshest local ingredients, and cooked with the utmost love and care. It's vital that we share comfort and joy through delicious food the best way we know how. Look forwarding to feeding you soon!
