SAN ANTONIO - Food and music fuse together at a unique Alamo City food truck.

Ian Stavis created the Sound Bites food truck to support local artists and provide tasty food to the San Antonio community.

“Music, art, all that stuff, it’s kind of everyone’s viewpoint on the city,” Stavis said. “It’s just the culture. I wanted to do something that really supported that.”

Local bands come to Sound Bites and create their own bubble tea, which goes on the menu.

Then the band behind the bestselling bubble tea wins a prize, courtesy of San Antonio Sound Garden.

“The band with the bestselling bubble tea gets $3,500 and studio time absolutely free,” Stavis said.

There’s more than just bubble tea though.

Award-winning chef Jeremy Carolino serves up tasty Asian cuisine with a San Antonio twist, with everything from pastor steam buns, noodles bowls and corn in a cup.

“San Antonio is an upcoming foodie city,” Carolino said. “Local chefs and I are trying very hard to introduce new things.”
