Hey foodies! Today’s post is about a dope street spot in Atlanta called 9th Ave Street Food. A couple of weekends ago, my friend and I were driving down Ponce de Leon Avenue to grab some Chipotle, until this little shack caught my eye. I had seen this spot a couple times before during my late night runs to Krispy Kreme and always said I would go try it. I insisted that my friend and I turn around and pull up to this spot, and boy was that the best decision we made that day.
9th Ave Street Food is a small business owned by a few women who aspire to share their love for food. The shack has a city like appearance that is plastered with artistic graffiti from the pavement to the top of the shack. The shack has outdoor seating that is perfect if you want to enjoy a nice day outside with the best view of Ponce de Leon Avenue.
When we got to the window, we were immediately presented with friendly smiles and menus to get us started. My friend and I ordered the “Jerk Philly,”The Long Way,” and a side of “Street Corn.” We split all of our entrees so we could get a taste of our options, and I have great things to say about each item. The Street Corn was the perfect starter for the meal. The corn was sweet and warm, and the combination of mayonnaise and cheese topped with a spicy chili peppers only heightened my excitement to devour the next two entrees. the The Jerk Philly was so sweet and savory. The sandwich was stuffed with caramelized onions, peppers, and fresh jerk chicken topped with sweet pineapple and accompanied with a side of yam chips. The Long Way had a fresh Italian flavor with seasoned meatballs, smothered in marinara sauce on top of ciabatta bread, and covered in melted cheese. The meatballs were huge and filled with tons of flavor; I could taste the fresh ingredients in every bite.
I can honestly say that I had NO issues with 9th Ave’s quality of food and service. The only flaw I could say about this restaurant is the pricing. The food ranges from $4-$15, but the portions are bit too small to match the prices. For two people our total wounded up being around $33 (including drinks). Because it’s a bit pricey, I would not come here everyday for a quick bite. On the other hand, if the weather is nice and I do not mind spending a little extra money, then I would definitely come back here for a Jerk Philly.
I hope you all enjoyed today’s post! I highly recommend that you all try out this restaurant! Please feel free to leave any comments if you have any type of feedback. Happy Friday!
