To our loyal fans and guests,


We have a bittersweet announcement for all of you that may have been missing us on the street. We have made the hard decision to close our food truck down for good. However, don’t think you won’t ever see our signature dishes like our Poboy, Pimento grilled cheese or Low country shrimp and grits, again. We are cooking up another idea to be able to bring our food to the community we love and we wanted to make it easier for you to find us with a more consistent location and regular hours of operation. More details will come after the holidays! Until then we want to thank everyone who’s come to our window and had our food over the last couple years, regulars and first timers alike. We wish you happiness and joy through the holiday season from our family to yours.


Laura and John (Ferg)

Here is a news article.

Ferg's Missing Ingredient is the new food truck in South Hampton Roads. Two chefs with more than 30 years of experience in the culinary arts bring Southern Comfort Food rolling into Virginia Beach. Our location, each day, will be found on our Facebook page. From Shrimp and Grits to Mac and Cheese, we've got the comfort food you've longed for from a food truck. See you soon.

Chef John Ferguson, 'Ferg', has been working in the hospitality industry for the past 20 years, working up and down the east coast after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America.

"I've loved to cook since I was helping my grandma in her kitchen when I was young. I particularly enjoy learning about and cooking regional cuisine, and where they originated. I've always wanted to serve the public my own food from my own concept. But something was missing. When I met my wife and her daughter, I realized they filled the void that was the missing ingredient. Laura has since urged me to follow my dream of serving the community (a dream she had also). Together we came up with “Ferg's Missing Ingredient”.

Wife and partner, Laura has worked 17 years in the restaurant industry. She always thought of “Missing Ingredient” as a name for her own restaurant. The cards didn't play that way, as it turns out. She kept working for other people. She had a daughter and dog, named Dixie, and married a good man, Ferg. The only thing missing … was the “Missing Ingredient”.

Opportunity presented itself in the form of a food truck and here we are.
