Atlanta’s first food truck, Yumbii, to open first restaurant in south Buckhead
The 1440-square-foot restaurant is the first in a series of openings planned for the expanding brand and will showcase a bright and modern look, with counter service for easy takeout and seating for dine-in guests.
“We’ve been overwhelmed and humbled by the enthusiastic response to Yumbii over the last six years,” said Yumbii founder and Atlanta native Carson Young. “Now, we couldn’t be more excited to lay down roots in a permanent space.”
Yumbii food trucks’ global, street-food-inspired menu fuses Asian and Mexican flavors, with favorites including panko-crusted fish tacos, Asian rib-eye Philly’s, spicy pulled pork sliders, and sides like sesame fries with sriracha cheese dip.
Signature toppings include cucumber kimchee, hoisin-tartar sauce, soy sesame salad, and more. The brick-and-mortar space will introduce an expanded menu, with additional items like breakfast tacos, salads, Mexican-style street corn, and rice bowls.
This news follows the recent announcement that Yumbii has introduced a state-of-the-art “Super Food Truck” to its fleet. The first of its kind on the East Coast and customized for Yumbii in Los Angeles, the eco-friendly, low-emissions Super Food Truck runs on diesel.
Its highly fuel-efficient engine employs a state-of-the-art technology that converts exhaust into harmless nitrogen gas and water vapor, thereby reducing emissions and lessening the vehicle’s environmental imprint.
Founded by native Atlantan Carson Young (32-years-old), Yumbii pioneered Atlanta’s food truck movement, rolling out the city’s first food truck in 2010. The brand has received many accolades over the years, including Atlanta Magazine’s “Best Foood Truck,” Creative Loafing’s “Readers’ Choice for Best Food Truck,” and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s “Best of the Big A.”
Yumbii also offers catering options for weddings, private parties, corporate events, and movie sets. To follow Yumbii’s travels and find the truck nearest to you, follow @Yumbii on Twitter.
