Whether we infuse an Asian dish with Southern flare or use an Asian technique to prepare a traditionally Southern dish- our unique style can't be found anywhere else in Little Rock. From humble food truck beginnings  in 2012, Chef Patterson has spread his message of scratch made food using unique, bold flavors and techniques paired with locally sourced products across Central Arkansas. In March 2015, The Southern Gourmasian opened it's doors as a brick+mortar expanding beyond our food truck classics to offer more of our Southern Asian fusion Arkansans- and visitors alike can't get enough of!
