Fork & Spoon, previously a pop-up restaurant that sold meals one to two times a month, is now serving Filipino-infused dishes six days a week at a permanent location.

The food trailer, once the Picnic Basket, previously owned by Ben Landaluce, is located at Main Street and Adams Avenue, behind the Net Loft.

Kate and Ted Velasco originally planned to rent space at the trailer for their pop-up meals, but Landaluce decided to move, selling the trailer to the Velascos, who began business at the new location on July 7, Ted Velasco said.

“Ever since then, it’s been really consistent,” he said. “Busy, that’s for sure.”

Fork & Spoon is open from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
