Another food truck is getting ready to roll out this week. The Asian Soul Kitchen is the creation of food and entertainment industry pros Akiko Konami and Richard Wright, and will offer up traditional Japanese dishes as well as inventive fusion items and soulful fare ("a little bit o' Asian and a little bit o' Soul"). On the menu are things like Yakisoba (a veggie-friendly noodle dish), Nikujaga (hearty beef stew with noodles), Salmon Korkke (a salmon-potato croquette), Lollipop Chicken, Asian Sliders, and Lettuce Wraps, along with side dishes like Southern Collard Greens with Smoked Turkey, Spicy Creamy Mac & Cheese, and Braised String Beans, along with a few rice dishes.

Some mechanical issues put the brakes on their soft-opening weekend plans, but they expect to roll out this week. Check their website for the confirmed schedule, and follow them on Twitter.
