As Via 313 temporarily moves its original food truck down the street to 1802 E. Sixth St. in preparation for its first brick-and-mortar location on that spot, Chi’Lantro announced over the weekend that it would be taking the pizza truck’s place at Violet Crown Social Club (1111 E. Sixth St.).

The Korean-Mexican fusion truck from Jae Kim is getting back to its roots and says it will stay open for late-night service (2 a.m.), the first time it has done that since 2015. In addition to the new truck, Chi’Lantro will open its fifth brick-and-mortar location later this year.
