Baltimore, MD: Meet Wheyich, Baltimore’s Newest Food Truck

By Richard Gorelick | The Baltimore Sun


Meet Wheyich, Baltimore’s newest food truck. Specializing in “artisanal cheesy sandwiches,” Wheyich rolled off the line in mid-December and started to hit the streets regularly right after the first of the year.

Wheyich (pronounced “which”) is from Ashwini Persaud, a recent transplant to Baltimore.  In an email, Persuad wrote, “I was an employee of Morgan Stanley for over seven years. As time grew on, I started considering changing career paths. I considered staying in finance but felt that doing what I loved, cooking and feeding everyone, would be a more enjoyable task. So I purchased a food truck, quit my job and opened Wheyich.”

The opening eight-sandwich menu includes creations like Sofia, mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, and nut-less basil pesto on country white bread; and Nicole, barbecue pork, cheddar and caramelized onions on Texas toast. You can see the full menu here.

The cherry red truck has established a weekly schedule: Monday at Baltimore and Greene streets, Tuesday in front of the Morgan Stanley Building in Fells Point, Wednesday at Commerce and Pratt streets, Thursday near the Safeway in Canton and Friday at Charles and Baltimore streets.
