Brava Bowls 🍓
Charleston's original açaí food truck, Brava Bowls, is the place to go to get your health fix! Brava Bowls uses organic, and mostly local ingredients, to create their perfectly assembled bowls. For those who don't know, açaí is a berry grown in the Amazon Rainforest that is rich in nutrients and antioxidants. It is blended into a frozen puree, similar to a smoothie, and topped with fruit, granola, or any topping you like. Their weekly time and location is shared on their Facebook and Instagram accounts.
Booze Pops 🥂
Booze Pops is a huge hit for tourists and locals in Charleston, and was voted Charleston's Choice Best Food Truck. This great idea began with a local US Army veteran who tried an alcohol-infused popsicle at a birthday party. He purchased an ice cream truck, and has been bringing the community together ever since. Booze Pops can usually be found on King Street, Meeting Street, or Folly Beach, but also at numerous charity events across the Lowcountry.
Hint, hint: the Mimosa Orange is a must try.
Cast Iron Food Truck + Catering 🍗

All good nights in Downtown Charleston end at Platia. This Greek food truck can be found on the corner of King Street and Spring Street on Thursday - Saturday from 8:00PM - 3:00AM.
