If you’ve been to any St. Pete or Tampa Bay area brewery recently then you’ve probably seen or smelled the deliciousness of Shiso Crispy food truck. After three years of building three different food trucks, Shiso Crispy is finally going to have a brick and mortar location. Owner Ronicca Whaley was super pumped to share the exciting news on her social media.
Shiso Crispy is known around the bay area for their amazing signature Asian fusion creations, like their lobster rangoon or handmade gyoza. Not only has Ronicca been featured in the New York Times, but she was also a two-time contestant on Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games.
The restaurant is going to be located at Tyrone Gardens in St. Pete, next to a brand new Crunch Fitness. The timing for the local food truck owner couldn’t be better since the whole area is being renovated. Ronicca plans to use the 2,660sq ft space as a restaurant, prep kitchen for the food trucks, and a storefront for wholesale sauces and dumplings. As exciting as this news is for any foodie in the Tampa Bay area, we’ll have to wait about 5 months for renovations to be complete.
In the meantime, you can find Shiso Crispy at House of Beer in Dunedin (931 Huntley Ave, Dunedin). You can also find them at Unlimited Video Games Superstore and Arcade (6901 US Hwy 19 N, Pinellas Park ). You should also follow them on their social media to keep track of any events they’ll be at!
