Myrtle Beach Real Estate is a hot real estate market and a destination for vacationers everywhere. Did you know it was also a foodie destination? I am a self proclaimed foodie and I do have a soft spot in my heart for a great food truck. Walk up to the window, grab some good eats and be on your way. What could be better?

Murrells Inlet is hosting it's first food truck festival on Saturday February 22, 2013 from Noon to 8:00pm at Suck Bang Blow, which is at 3393 U.S. 17 Business in Murrells Inlet. An update was posted, however, that the festival may be delayed if rain in the forecast does indeed last all day so keep an eye on that.

The festival will include nine gourmet food trucks offering regional and international flavors. The trucks are from over SC with one local from Creek Ratz in Murrells Inlet. Additional trucks come from Charleston, Columbia, Wilmington and Charlotte.

The complete list of food trucks includes:

  • Cast Iron Food Truck, Charleston – Barbecue, Jerk Chicken Burgers
  • Cory’s Grilled Cheese, Charleston – Cory Schwartz makes thick grilled cheese sandwiches on a variety of breads (white, sourdough, multi-grain, gluten-free, cinnamon raisin swirl) with many filling choices such as brie, chevre, muenster, pimento cheese, Cheddar, bacon, avocado, Nutella, fried onions, jams, basil, fruits and peppers.
  • Creek Ratz, Murrells Inlet – Sandwiches and seafood.
  • Dulce, Charleston – Desserts such as cookies, cheesecake, mousse, muffins, pies and tarts; and freshly brewed hot and cold teas from Charleston Tea Plantation. “All the desserts are restaurant quality,” says truck owner Ericka Kalinowski.
  • Geechee Island, Charleston – Smoked meats.
  • Little Star of the Caribbean, Charleston – Caribbean, Puerto Rican, Cuban and Spanish/Basque cuisine such as Empanadas, Tostones, Pernil, Arroz con Gandules and Cuban Sandwich.
  • Pawleys Front Porch, Columbia – Burgers, chicken sandwiches, fish tacos and BLT with pimento cheese.
  • Poor Piggy’s, Wilmington - Pork barbecue and beef brisket. 
  • Refueler’s Mobile Café, Charleston – Lumpia, which is “like a Filipino version of an egg roll,” cheesesteaks and adobo, which is like egg fried rice with pork or chicken.

The Food Truck Festival will also have live music from Pastor Pastor!, Spider Web Blues, and a motorcycle/hot rod swap meet.
