1115 Mobile Kitchen is a new food truck serving up southern-style traditional dishes, and it’s parking for the first time on November 15th in Scott’s Addition at Buskey Cider. Owner and chef Henry Fletcher combines his kitchen experience and independence as a skateboarder with his drive to bring about positive change and the desire to break down walls between meat-eaters and those with plant-based diets.
The menu features vegan dishes that are just as delicious as their meaty counterparts, like the Triple MMM Crispy Chicken Sando (available with organic chicken or soy protein), Shrimp and Rice (local shrimp or house-made tofu-based shrimp), and house cut and seasoned home fries dubbed “Homies,” available with a plant-based cheese sauce. It’s not often that a restaurant or food truck does both meat and plant-based dishes so well, but Fletcher aims to change that.
What’s in a number? As a teenager, Fletcher noticed that the number 1115 was emerging throughout his life, in the address of the house where he spent his free time between skateboarding sessions, on the clock, in books, even on buses. Urged to look into the mysterious repeating number, he discovered angel numbers, a concept based in numerology that guides a person on how to interpret numbers that frequently pop up in daily life.
“The number 1115 means that a positive change is coming forward into your life,” explains Fletcher. “For me, 1115 is the positive change to break down the wall between meat-eaters and vegan eaters and allow them to experience similar flavors at no extra cost.”
Expect not just high marks for the food but also additional style points when eating at 1115. Fletcher, after all, is a skateboarder well versed in expressing his individuality. “I seek spaces where I can be myself,” he says. “The two biggest places I feel like I can be who I am and who I want to be is on a skateboard and in the kitchen.”
1115 Mobile Kitchen celebrates its grand opening on November 15th at 2910 W Leigh St, Richmond, VA 23230. For more information, visit 1115mobilekitchen.com.
