Howell Mill Food Truck Park

8 Jun

Do you remember me saying that I was obsessed with the food truck coalition here in Atlanta? Well, now they have a park, err… empty lot just for food trucks.

This make me happy since most of the time the food trucks gather at a location too far from my job and usually during the work week.

The Howell Mill Food Truck Park gathers weekly and starts around 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Of course I had to have my favorite, Yumbii!  The usual fish tacos with sesame fries and chipotle ketchup.

We also tired out a new food truck that also serves up  tacos, Tex’s Tacos.

Luis had Pastor de Puerco taco; slow roasted pork marinated in chilies and pineapples, topped with grilled onions, pineapple, and cheese.  I had the Carne Asada; steak taco.  We really enjoyed  the tacos, but loved their tortilla chips that are dusted with homemade lime seasoning even more. Not going to lie, the main reason why I ordered from this food truck was just to have a Jarritos lime drink. Love that stuff!

My almost every weekend treat was there too, King of Pops, but we decided to try out a new dessert from Westside Creamery.

Luis had a scoop of the maple cinnamon ice cream while I had the salted butter caramel ice cream.  Both did not have a strong flavor and I kinda wished I had grabbed a popsicle from King of Pops instead.

Next time, I’m thinking Yum Yum Cupcake!

King of Pops @ North Ave

21 Feb

The long weekend was full of sunshine and warm weather.

Perfect for something cool and sweet…

Number 65 on my list of things to do while in Georgia.

Steven is the owner of King of Pops and sells hand crafted ice pops from local ingredients.  The first time we went, he opened his cart up for business around noon and by the time we got there at 3 pm, he was pretty much sold out.  We did get to try the Chocolate Sea Salt popsicles which were super creamy and tasty.

So, we tried again the next day and were able to try an interesting flavor; Tangerine Basil.

Oh sooooo good.  I love the mixture of citrus and herbs.  One of my favorite desserts from The Capital Grille is the lemon cilantro sorbet.

Even the packaging is cute!  I think I am a fan and I might even have to talk Luis into another kitchen gadget to add to our collection.
