does not have street food like in Asia – oh how I wish we did! However, we do have food trucks! This is still a relatively new business sector in Atlanta, but it is growing and there is definitely a hungry appetite for it!  There is one official
Food Truck Park in the city, but each evening, the trucks will ride out and roll up to different neighborhoods to setup shop for the dinner rush.  They are all at different locations each day so you’ll have to do some P.I. work to know where to find them – it’s like a scavenger hunt for dinner!

This was a Wednesday night in the Virginia Highlands, but only three food trucks made it out to celebrate hump day!  While it is normally a lot busier, I was able to order something from every food truck to give my readers the scoop on what’s delicious! Yumbii, Viet-Nomie’s, and Mix’D Up (plus King of Pops) came bringing their best and wafting amazing aromas into the evening air.

Yumbii‘s is a collision of Mexican and Asian flavors together into an awesome menu. It is definitely one of my favorite food trucks!

I hope the Viet-Nomies‘ family won’t mind me snapping a photo of their adorable girls.  It looks like a Vietnamese family runs this restaurant, serving very authentic food.  I ordered the Bani Sandwich, which left me wanting a little more.  I’m still withholding hope that the other menu items will be better.  Finding good Vietnamese food can be difficult in America.  I’ll try something else next time!

Mix’D Up boasts an international menu, but let’s face it – burgers are American.  This food truck does an amazing job mixing flavors together you wouldn’t expect on a burger.

This burger is amazing and HUGE! They used wing sauce to spice up the burger, and it was a fantastic idea!
