This new food truck came to Bham last spring and offers a healthier outdoor eating option.  City Bowls delicious menu offers acai and pitaya bowls and smoothies.

Acai, a brazilian super fruit, is one of the healthiest berries you can find.  Their bowls have these and other fresh fruits, organic granola, and honey.

This small batch, artisan ice cream company started in 2014 with two former Bottega chefs and an old school ice cream bike cart.  They soon expanded to a full food truck and now have a beautiful storefront in Avondale.

Big Spoon’s gourmet ice cream has seasonal, unique flavors but also comes in the form of sammies, shakes, and specialty sundaes.  I highly recommend their brambleberry cobbler, cookies and cream, and summer sangria sorbet ice creams, but it’s impossible to go wrong so knock yourself out.
