Every so often, I have to face my addictions and Twitter is one of them. Unlike Facebook where you know everyone within your social network, Twitter is an open forum so you tend to see a lot of different people focused around a particular topic. This is exactly how I found out about Yumbii.

It turns out that owner Carson Young, was instrumental developing Atlanta’s food truck movement, beginning operations in 2010. Winning awards from Atlanta Magazine, Creative Loafing, and the AJC just tempted me more to find out about Yumbii and this crazy street food that’s a self-proclaimed Asian-Mexican-Southern fusion.

I was even more excited when I found out Yumbii just rolled out a new eco-friendly, low emissions food truck that runs on diesel fuel. If you’re thinking of one of those huge pickup truck spewing smoky exhaust out of huge tailpipes, you’re wrong. Customized for Yumbii in Los Angeles, this truck uses the latest technology that is clean-idle certified to convert exhaust into harmless nitrogen gas and water vapor.

It was a joy for me was to grab some folks from the office and bring them along for the ride for the pilgrimage to Yumbii. The pressure was on, but my taste for adventure is high and I rarely disappoint. I ordered the Combo #1 which is 3 tacos and a drink for $10 (a great deal, I might add). That’s a Asian Rib-Eye Beef, a Spicy Pulled Pork, and a Chicken Taco. Watch it, because most people though that the Sriracha sauce brought it to their limit, it would have been way too hot for Miss Melanie to enjoy. I loved it and thought the heat was perfection! The Sesame Fries were incredible, but I’m refraining from carbs during the week so I was just tried a few fries .

The Yumbii food truck was fun, fun, fun and a hit with all of my co-workers! I got a big ATTABOY and Yumbii has customers for life. To find out where the Yumbii food trucks are visit: http://www.yumbii.com/find-the-truck Guten appetit!
