Cooks & Soldiers

May 7, 2015

Though posts are sparse these days, I do take a lot of photos (many can be found on Instagram) but while I can pop the contrast and brightness and make most anything appear #vividdelish, I generally offer little opinion on those short posts. At the same time I don’t have time to go on about each […]

Home Grown Comfy Chicken Biscuit

August 25, 2014

Maybe this is old hat to all you east side playerz, but I’ve only visited Home Grown three times now, and this past weekend was the first time I’ve heard of, seen, or tasted the comfy chicken biscuit. Let me set the scene – In bed, slightly hung over, aching for that perfect breakfast item […]

The Atlanta Burger and Fry Index

August 12, 2014

For lunch today I had the Canoe burger, which on a value/taste matrix, may be the best burger and fry in town. It’s what I call a hotel burger.

Gato Arigato

February 21, 2014

Gato Arigato has been operating out of Gato Bizco in Candler Park for many months now, though I recently made my first visit to the Japanese inspired pop-up operated by Chef Allen Suh. The menu is constantly changing, almost as much as their days of operation, with the most recent schedule having them open Sunday […]

It had been ages since I’ve visited Chat Patti, the vegetarian Indian restaurant off North Druid Hills, when my family and I visited on a recent Sunday afternoon. I’ve only been a few times, but frequently think to myself that I need to make a return visit to the smaller, casual and friendly eatery, which […]

TON TON Ramen @ Octane

February 5, 2014

Most of Atlanta must already know about TON TON, the winter pop-up by Guy Wong of Miso Izakaya at Octane Grant Park, because the last few weeks, it appears most of Atlanta has been visiting for the weekly Sunday evening event. I planned on attending the first evening, until I saw social media reports of […]

Umi Holiday Visit

January 12, 2014

The holiday season was a busy one, filled with gifts, holiday get-togethers, hams and turkeys and beef roasts, beverages, travel (complicated with the constant loading and unloading of baby supplies) and dining out with friends. One such seasonal meal I greatly anticipated was a visit eight of us made to Umi in Buckhead, the “ultra modern” […]

January 6, 2014: A Day of Chickening

January 9, 2014

Georgia produces more chicken than any state in the USA, and as a resident of the good old state of Georgia, as well as a God fearing consumer, I do my part to support this fowl, prosperous industry. Boiled in ripping hot fat is the favorite chicken cook method, but I even boil it in […]
