A new Korean street food truck, Kimchi Jon’s, is now serving at East Side brewery Zilker Brewing Company. The truck will stay at 1701 East 6th Street for at least two months.

Kimchi Jon’s serves Korean favorites like savory kimchi pancakes and fried chicken, along with more American takes like a kimchi hot dog and a burger. There’s also sweet hotteok, which are doughnuts filled with brown sugar and nuts. All kimchi and sauces are made from scratch. The truck may feature more traditional specials like jjigae or ramen in the future.

Kimchi Jon’s previously operated as a pop-up at East Austin bar Kitty Cohen’s before the food truck opened in August. It is a collaboration between couple Zach Miller and Amanda Hawkes, who were inspired to start the truck by a backpacking trip through Asia. Miller previously worked at Micklethwait Craft Meats, Uchi, and Italian restaurant Coppa in his hometown of Boston.

Kimchi’s placement at Zilker Brewing is ideal as Miller and Hawkes call Korean food “the ultimate drinking food,” but they hope to open a brick-and-mortar someday.

The truck is open Tuesday through Thursday 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from noon to midnight, and Sunday from noon to 8 p.m.
