Finally! After several years and hemming and hawing back and forth, Horry County has allowed food trucks to serve five Carolina Forest locations and one Myrtle Beach location. The five locations in the Carolina Forest sector of Myrtle Beach along the Grand Strand includes two along Surgeons Drive, sites near the Presbyterian Church, Forest Salon and Spa at Finnegan Court & Postal Way, and the Kia dealership on U.S. 501. The Myrtle Beach location is New South Brewery, which is in downtown Myrtle Beach by Better Brands on Mr. Joe White Avenue.
The first food truck to brave the elements was Charleston Flats, a specialty flatbread pizza truck from Charleston, South Carolina. Last week was the first run and the truck seemed to be a big hit with it’s unique menu. The flatbreads range from $7 to $12 and include toppings such as pulled pork, buffalo chicken, brie cheese, truffle oil and even toasted marshmallow! The “Charleston” is piled high with pulled pork, roasted pineapple, cheddar cheese, pickled jalapeños and BBQ sauce. For a more refined palate, try the “Arugula for You-gula” that layers arugula, goat cheese, prosciutto, dried figs and a balsamic reduction. For dessert, the “Cousins Clubhouse” fits the bill with peanut butter, bananas, honey, toasted marshmallows and rainbow sprinkles! Charleston Flats also offers soups, salads, cheesy rice balls, beverages and “sweet treats” like Grandma’s Carrot Cake Cupcakes, Almond Biscotti and Ninas’ Mini Italian Cheesecakes.
It’s nice to see Myrtle Beach change their old ways sometimes. Especially for those of us who have been waiting so long for food truck regulations to change. Now we have yet another reason to move to Carolina Forest in Myrtle Beach! Give us a call today at 843.602.4597 if you are interested in looking at some Legends Resort real estate!
