Yumbii began in 2010 as Atlanta’s first and finest food truck, offering fresh ingredients with a street food twist. In 2017, we planted permanent roots and opened the first Yumbii Taco Shop. But, we’re not your average taco joint – we offer a unique blend of Asian and Mexican flavors. You can find Yumbii rolling around all over the city, catering lunches and events, chilling at festivals, or come visit us anytime at out permanent Peachtree Street location in South Buckhead. Keep an eye out… more locations coming soon!
Founded in 2010, Yumbii offers street food that fuses Asian and Mexican flavors, including panko-crusted fish tacos, Asian rib-eye Philly’s and spicy pulled pork sliders. The super food truck, the third food truck in the fleet, will hit the streets just in time for summer. The addition of more eco-friendly trucks adds to the conversation of whether food trucks are greener than restaurants and how we can make this outdoor activity a more sustainable one.
The customized “Super Food Truck” was built in Los Angeles and runs on diesel fuel and is clean-idle certified. Best yet, the low-emissions food truck converts exhaust into harmless nitrogen gas and water vapor, according to the company, reducing its environmental impact as it goes from event to event. Its fuel-efficient engine meets EPA 2010 and California Air Resources Board HD-OBD emissions standards. The eco-friendly food truck is the first one with these features on the East Coast.
