Restaurant Review: Food Trucks

OK, so technically it's not really a resturant, but food trucks have become all the rage in Atlanta this summer!  Every Tuesday night is a gypsy-like gathering of gourmet food trucks near the intersection of Howell Mill and Collier Road.  I was expecting much more of a park like atmosphere based on the artist rendering I had seen.  Ummmm....not quite.  Think more of just a gravel lot.  BUT, the food more than made up for this!  Seriously not the "roach coaches" you might think of when picturing food coming out of a truck-turned-kitchen.  

Howell Mill Food Park
Not quite, but maybe the gravel lot will look like this one day???

Here's the run-down on my top three must haves:

Korean BBQ Taco
Asian rib-eye beef, topped with Hankook BBQ sauce and sesame salad.  Served in a soft tortilla.  Amazing! 

Tex's Tacos
Carne Asada Taco and Lime Fries
Not much explanation needed here.  Citrus marinated steak in a tortilla and topped with grilled onions, guac, shredded cheese and cilantro.  The fries...yum...good crispy fries topped with Tex's homemade sweet & salty lime seasoning.  So good with an ice cold Coca-Cola! 

King of Pops
Raspberry Lime Popsicle
A homemade popsicle with fresh raspberries and lime.  Tastes just like a margarita, but better, if you can imagine.  The perfect ending to a summer evening!
*These guys have had lots of hype.  Now I totally get what all the fuss was about.

Delish, fun and definitely different for a Tuesday night out!
