Day 37

Korean BBQ Tacos: I've been reading about the Yumbii food truck for the past few weeks now. For those of you who aren't familiar, Yumbii (www.yumbii.com) is a mobile kitchen enclosed in a super-cool looking truck, and they visit a different location in Atlanta every day. They're serving a variety of Korean tacos/burritos, filled with various meats and toppings. I've had some Korean food before, but this was something new to me. I love all things in taco form, so me and the GF decided to trek over to Buckhead and check it out for lunch today.

We walked up to the truck to place our order, and they had some awesome-sounding items. The choices were Korean BBQ tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, all with a choice of spicy beef, chicken, spicy pulled pork, or tofu, topped with a sesame salad. They also had pulled pork sliders topped with cucumber kimchee. I opted for spicy beef and pork tacos. Our orders were prepared in seconds, and I was really pleased at how affordable the menu was -  only $2 per taco, $5 for burritos and quesadillas. I took a bite of the beef taco, and it was super tasty. The beef was tender and had a lot of flavor, and the sesame salad provided a nice contrast to the meat. I also noticed a spicy red sauce mixed in, and the guy who took our order (the owner?) told me it was a spicy Korean-style BBQ sauce. The pulled pork taco was equally tasty, and seemed to have a little of the spicy sauce mixed in as well.

If you're an Atlanta resident, check out Yumbii for sure - you won't be disappointed. Delicious.


  1. where does the truck park in Buckhead? I really want to try this!

  2. It's at the Prominence Building, near the intersection of Piedmont/Lenox near the Buckhead Loop. They usually park near the main entrance. Hope you get to try!
