A tasty morsel from Brigette at Blue Hominy:
Menu of Street Food Classics Blends Asian, Mexican & Southern Flavors
Yumbii, Atlanta’s first and favorite food truck, will open its first brick-and-mortar restaurant, Yumbii Taco Shop, in South Buckhead this fall. Set in Brookwood Village, the location is the first in a series of openings planned for the beloved and expanding brand. The restaurant will showcase a bright and modern look, with counter service for easy takeout and inviting 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 truck’s 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, and soy sesame salad. The brick-and-mortar space will introduce an expanded menu, with additional items like breakfast tacos, salads, Mexican-style street corn, and rice bowls.
Founded by native Atlantan Carson Young, Yumbii pioneered Atlanta’s food truck movement, rolling out the city’s first food truck in 2010. The beloved brand has received an outpouring of accolades over the years, including Atlanta Magazine’s “Best Food Truck,” Creative Loafing’s “Readers’ Choice for Best Food Truck,” and The Atlanta Journal Constitution’s “Best of the Big A.”
Yumbii’s well-known and brightly painted vehicles will continue to pop up all over the city. Yumbii also offers catering options for weddings, private parties, corporate events, and movie sets.
