Curbside is the latest addition to the food truck craze that is breaking its way into Seattle.
Curbside is a Vietnamese food truck…well, actually it’s a trailer, and it sits stationary at the Shell Gas Station on Nickerson Street and Queen Anne. It’s about a block away from Seattle Pacific University (SPU) and is somewhere between the Fremont and Queen Anne boundaries.
As many in the area know, Curbside sat at the corner of the gas station waiting to open for months. Pending inspections and paperwork, people would constantly go by asking when would it open? Well, after frustrating months of working with inspectors, auditors, crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s, Curbside finally had its grand opening on March 19, 2013.
Since its opening, Curbside has had a warm welcoming into the neighborhood with people showing their excitement to the food trailer and coming back for seconds on the same day. The SPU area has been seriously lacking food, so this was a great change of pace for the locals and students, plus, it’s really affordable. According to most customers, the cost of eating out for them has gone dramatically down! So, after overcoming the difficulties of getting the truck up and running, Khang, the owner, and has been elated with the bustling reception and is constantly excited to meet who’s next in line.
