Food Trucking, Atlanta Style

Well, friends, it has been quite the summer. My super smart doctor husband likes to pull out the apropos quotes from time to time.

“There are years when nothing happens and years in which centuries happen.” ~Carlos Fuentes

I have not been blogging much, because…well, life. We moved to a new state, started making a home in a new apartment, and started new jobs. Pretty much everything changed this summer. I am lucky to be travelling this path with my soul mate, and we are working harder than we ever have, and then playing hard when we get a chance.

Exploration of the culinary scene here in Atlanta is tantamount to being a kid in a candy store. We are living in Foodie Heaven. We have vowed to actively try to avoid eating in any chains. Our new neighborhood includes Blackburn Park. This gorgeous, vast venue hosts a food truck rally every Wednesday night, May-October. They have made our dinner plans easy on more than one occasion. Here are some of the hits and misses.

My first taste was my best taste. Spiedie Zone handed me these loaded tots and I was hooked.

Spencer’s favorite has definitely been the wood-fired brick-oven pizza from Dominic’s NY Pizza. The Doc has visited that fine trailer more than once. There is something equally fascinating and disturbing about watching the guys stoke up the fire in a truck!


Some trucks offered some amazing items, and then some things we wouldn’t get again. Island Chef Café gets bonus points for walking us down memory lane. Their food and drinks were a perfect reminder of our wedding in The Bahamas. The Calypso Shrimp Tacos were no joke, we were both sweating profusely after eating those two spicy wraps.

Yumbii’s offers “far out food.” I wanted to love their sliders (Spicy pulled pork, cucumber Kimchee, soy-sesame vinaigrette salad, shredded Mexican cheese) but they were surprisingly bland. The memorable item here is the fries. They are salty, sweet, and spicy. Go for a side of the Sriracha Cheese dip, you can thank me later.

Grubbin’ Out offers tons of sliders. We tried a few, my only complaint here was that the sliders need a bit more sandwich glue. I enjoyed the cheese fries with jalapenos quite a bit.

I have saved the best for last. The fine folks at Urban Taali say, “Have a sandwich. Have a smile.” Hello, new friend. I still have dreams about the 5 Point Philly.

Sandwich Superstar, indeed.
