Food trucks, like hedgehogs, are so IN right now. If you haven't seen a food truck, they are basically like a whole restaurant that can drive right up to your house, office, wedding reception, etc. That's right, all the cool people are actually renting food trucks for weddings and parties! They are usually cutely decorated and have a catchy name.
I randomly came across some food trucks on Twitter...tacos, BBQ, cupcakes, etc. that frequent the midtown Atlanta area. It always makes me so jealous seeing their locations posted on Twitter...so close yet so far away. Although I can get to midtown from work in about 20 minutes, it seems far to go to get lunch by myself. But...thankfully one local food truck, Yumbii decided to travel OTP (outside the perimeter - of Atlanta) and come to the 'burbs. My mom and I decided to go to the address Yumbii posted since it was semi close to my house. And SURPRISE! - when we got to the location there were numerous food trucks! I have never had food from a food truck (except for hot chocolate once from a catering food truck on the set of The Vampire Diaries, but I don't really count that since it was just hot water and a mix packet), so I was really excited to try it.
The different trucks that were in this shopping center included: Hail Caesar, Queen of Tarts, Tex's Tacos, Honeysuckle Southern-Inspired Gelato, Yumbii, and Pressed for Time Paninis. Although each truck had something that sounded super delicious, I had to get tacos from Yumbii since I follow them on Twitter and they were how I found out about the event. Plus, they were Atlanta's first food truck! I ordered a combo #1, which included 3 tacos and a drink for $9. I wanted to try different things so I ordered a fish taco, an Asian beef taco, and a chicken taco plus a fruit punch Gatorade. Everything was super delicious! I must say the chicken and fish tacos were my favs though. After tacos, my mom and I got gelato from Honeysuckle. I ordered the Snacks on a Plane flavor, which included peanuts, caramel and pretzels in vanilla gelato. Yum!
My first food truck experience was great! I definitely recommend trying them. Twitter is a great way to find the locations of the trucks, but they usually post their schedules on their websites as well. Next time I want to try to hunt down the cupcake food truck! Delicious!
