Well, this isn’t going to be good for my health. If I could ask for a food trailer to be created to serve one of my favorite culinary niches, it would look a lot like Southern comfort trailer Red Star Southern. Former Congress pastry chef Erica Waksmunski is moving from sweets to savory eats with the trailer that opens Sunday at 1700 E. 6th St. at the Grackle.

The Airstream trailer, the conversion of which Waksmunski detailed on Instagram, will serve fried chicken, pulled pork sandwich with Duke’s mayonnaise, vegetable gratin, and sides like deviled eggs and hush puppies.

It will be open every day but Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 1 a.m.
