The darling of the E. 6th food truck scene, East Side King, has opened a second location, behind the new 96 Bar on Rainey St. That is not technically the East Side, but we suppose we will let that slide because holy crap, they have a whole new menu. A whole new concept, even! Whereas the original location focused on Asian buns and salads with fried elements, the second truck features a menu that consists almost entirely of grilled skewers. We're particularly excited about the fish balls, but check out the whole thing below.

Momo: Yakitori (grilled chicken thigh), green onion, tare, and kewpie. $6
Kimo: Grilled chicken liver, tare, ponzu, shichimi, and yellow onion. $6
