Pop by the PHS Pop Up this weekend for a tropical drink or cold beer, as well as delicious dishes from the Jamaican Jerk Hut, our next-door neighbor. In addition, a rotation of food trucks will be at the Pop Up Garden throughout the summer. Featured food trucks this weekend include Spot Gourmet Burgers, Steaks & Pork tonight, Phoebe’s Barbecue on Saturday and KAMI on Sunday.
Spot serves gourmet, hand-crafted burgers using fresh ground, 100% sirloin beef. One favorite is their half-pound sirloin cheesesteaks. They also serve super lean roast pork loin, masterfully seasoned, thinly sliced in natural pork au jus.
On Saturday, Phoebe’s Barbeque, a South Street favorite, will bring out their food cart to serve mouthwatering tastes of Oklahoma-style barbeque food. Selections include their famous “Ribs with Attitude” as well as pulled pork sandwiches and award-winning sides and sauces.
KAMI will park at the Pop Up on Sunday with their signature gourmet Korean dishes. A local favorite is the KAMI burger, a bulgogi kimchi with Korean slaw on a bun. They’re also famous for their Korean Tacos made with marinated beef with spicy pickled daikon carrots, lettuce, cheese, and sour cream.
