  • W.O.W. Food Truck



After three years of rolling around the streets of Atlanta, Wonderlicious on Wheels (aka the WOW food truck), is on the lookout for a brick-and-mortar location. The as-yet-unamed eatery, slated to open in early 2015, will be the same concept but with an expanded menu. (Think you’ve got the perfect spot for WOW? Let us know in the comments.)

Owner Wendy Cross started the arepa truck in 2011 after the search for a quick bite in New York City with her brother ended with her first arepa and a dream of bringing the Venezuelan street snack to Atlanta. Now, arepa fans flock to WOW for the soft and crispy griddled corncakes, stuffed with roasted meats or veggies and topped with their signature creamy cilantro and jalapeno “Kicky” sauce.

As the real estate search continues, the WOW food truck will continue to make its rounds to places like The Atlanta Food Truck Park, Duluth Food Truck Fridays, and Midtown at 12th & Peachtree street. Follow WOW on Facebook and Twitter for the latest.

The Inman Park development at 299 North Highland Ave. (the corner of Elizabeth Street), now known officially as Inman Quarter, recently added four future food and drink establishments to its roster. In addition to an outpost of Bartaco, the return of MF Sushi, and an unnamed The Optimist spinoff from chef Ford Fry, it will welcome Bread & Butterfly (from the owners of Cakes & Ale), a cocktail joint called AMER (from Bocado’s Brian Lewis), the headquarters for Cacao Atlanta Chocolate Company, and the first-ever wine shop from Barteca Restaurants, Barcelona VinoTeca. Look for rolling debuts starting early 2015.

The Buckhead Bell Street Burritos (1816 Peachtree Street) recently got its alcohol license, but that’s for beer only, folks. Owner Matt Hinton says offerings will focus on local and craft brews, starting next week, in the hopes of making the burrito joint a more appealing nighttime destination. While there won’t be a tap, the list includes Sweetwater 420, Terrapin Recreationale, Dos Equis Amber, Victory Prima Pils, and Founders All Day.

In related news, Bell Street has also added milkshakes, Coke and Cheerwine floats, and King of Pops to the menu.
