On our drive from Orlando to Nashville last month, we stopped in Atlanta for dinner.
I can enjoy Chick-Fil-A, but we don’t regularly eat fast food. When Jordan and I road trip, sometimes fast food is unavoidable (I could bring food, but packing lunches is one of those things I don’t do). During the six-hour drive, I spent a few moments looking for a local establishment that wouldn’t require a complicated parking situation. Coming from Chicago, I anticipate complicated parking though I’m recognizing most cities aren’t as congested.
I went straight to Jenna’s guide to Atlanta and was sold as soon as I saw the words “food truck!”
Atlanta’s Food Truck Park & Market is essentially right off the highway, which makes it extremely convenient for road travelers. The ease of fast food is experienced without eating fast food! The featured trucks change depending on the day and are announced on the Atlanta Food Truck Park & Market’s Facebook page.
After looking through all of our menu options, we ate from Island Chef Cafe, as they had more gluten-free meals. I chose curry chicken with steamed yellow rice ‘n’ vegetables and plantains. Jordan had the mango jerk chicken. My curry was delicious and honestly one of the best meals I’ve had in a while.
For dessert we split a coconut paletas from King of Pops. I’ve only recently discovered the world of Latin American ice pops. I have been missing out! Nashville’s version, Las Paletas, is merely a hop, skip and a jump from our front door. We love taking visitors there!
And before we knew it, we were back on the road!
^ Jordan ordered this ginger soda of sorts. It had a very unique flavor!
