It has been a big week for Food Trucks in Atlanta..first the filming of the Great Food Truck Race came to town followed by the opening of Howell Mill Food Park on Tuesday night. Within days of launching their facebook page, the Howell Mill Food Park has over 2000 fans. If that isn't sign enough that Atlanta was overdue for the food truck scene to hit, the crowds at the inaugural Food Park opening sure were.
The Howell Mill Food Park is an empty gravel lot where food trucks congregate on Tuesday nights from now on starting at 6pm. It is a great way to taste food from many trucks. The crowds were quite large and lines could be long but the experience was great and it was wonderful to see so many people supporting the effort.
We sampled many things including the Bahn Mi from Munch
A slaw dog from the Pup Truck
Delicously spicy tamales from the Tamale Queen
And Salted Chocolate Popsicles from the King of Pops
The best thing we did was to bring our kids a couple of chairs as seating is sparse.
I hope that Howell Mill Food Park is here to stay. Parking is a bit tough but worth the effort. And I really hope that in the coming weeks my favorite truck, The Good Food Truck, will be there and the Fry Guy, who I have been dying to try out.
