At Urban Myth Street Food — the new permanent food truck at Buskey Cider — Chef Will Leung-Richardson, formerly of Kudzu RVA, is out at the helm and Chef Mike Lindsey, of Lillie Pearl and Buttermilk + Honey, has stepped in.
The menu features Asian fusion, such as a Korean short rib rice bowl and several fried chicken sandwiches like the Southern smoky fried chicken sandwich topped with slaw.
Buskey owners Will and Elle Correll have been friends with Lindsey and his wife, Kimberly Love-Lindsey, and said the pair jumped in to help launch the Urban Myth concept.
