Food truck offers new summer dining options at Museum of Life and Science
Posted August 2
The Museum of Life and Science has a new food option this summer.
The Southern Harvest Mobile Kitchen food truck, which is run by the company behind the museum's Sprout Cafe, is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., daily, near the Dinosaur Trail and offers a rotating menu that changes about every two weeks based on customer demand. All menus feature a vegan or vegetarian option, a gluten-free option and are peanut free. I'm told the taco menu, especially, has proven to be very popular.
Prices are really reasonable. A recent menu included grilled skewered meat or veggies at $3 each; a satay salad or sandwich for $7; grilled corn on the cob for $3; and funnel cake or vanilla creme with fresh berries for $3 each. A menu for kids had a hot dog and fries or chicken tenders and fries for $5.
The museum posts the latest menu on its website every Monday morning.
The truck will remain open daily through Labor Day when it will likely be open on the weekends from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., through the fall. Picnic tables are available on the nearby Sprout Cafe plaza, on the train plaza and across from the food truck in a shaded, tree-lined area.
