Clearly, this is my “hit up every single eatery I’ve yet to visit in Atlanta” week on YAWYEOR. My apologies to those of you who aren’t within driving distance…but it does give you an idea of how much food is at my disposal at any given second.
It also gives you an idea of how much exercise I should be doing.
On one of my most recent jaunts around town (in search of food, of course), my friend and I ended up at the corner of North Ave. and North Highland. To those of you not familiar with this little corner, this is the official home of King of Pops.
King of Pops might seem like merely a popsicle stand, but trust me, it’s so much more. On this corner, Steven Carse, the owner, mastermind, and all around cool guy (see- cute), is quickly turning an everyday treat into a full on institution.
He’s using fresh, local ingredients all the while creating some incredibly tasty and innovative treats….(and an insane amount of buzz along the way.)
Just look to his trusty chalkboard for that day’s selection to see exactly how creative he can be.
(Fresh GA Peach, Chocolate Sea Salt, Honeydew Basil, Strawberry Rhubarb, Hibiscus Margarita and the list goes on…)
Unfortunately, I’ve only visited Steven’s cart once…had the chocolate sea salt.
Loved it so much I got it all over myself.
Guess I’ll just have to remember to use a napkin (or 40) next time.
So if you’re in the area, he’ll be tending his cart Tue-Fri/3p-730p and Sat-Sun/12n-730p. Oh and while you’re at it, get a t-shirt. Just sayin’.
*Thanks to King of Pops for letting me shove my camera in his face.
