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!

Sweet Auburn Curb Market @ Edgewood Ave

10 Apr

Luis took me out on Saturday to celebrate our 6th year being together.

It was an all day adventure . He thought of everything he knew I would love and crammed it into one day.

I have been having a slight obsession with street food and have been wanting to support the Street Food Coalition. So, Sweet Auburn Curb Market was just the right place for Luis to take me and explore a few food trucks.

Every Saturday Atlanta’s Urban Picnic is held at Sweet Auburn Curb Market (which is number 87 on my while in Georgia list), kinda like a food festival with food trucks and other businesses selling their goodies.

My favorite food truck is Yumbii.

I had spicy pulled pork sliders with cucumber kimchee and Luis had a pulled pork Korean BBQ taco with a side of sesame fries.

Inside the market there is fresh produce and great selections of meat and seafood, as well as all kinds of food stations that can meet any craving you might be having.

After the market we went to see the movie Hanna, followed by a trip to Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Of course! Because one thing we all know is that I love to admire and take pictures of trees, bushes, and flowers.  Everything I love in one day; food, watching a movie, and walking around in a garden. Luis knows me very well and how to make me happy.

Until tomorrow for part two of our celebration and our much needed time together.
