Our truck is a 1964 International ABM-130. When we found the truck it was in a state of disarray needing a full restoration. We spent over 12 months removing every nut and bolt restoring the truck to its former glory.

Outfitted with a fully equipped commercial kitchen that has been tailored made for our menus allowing a diverse range of Asian food catered to your needs.
