Espresso & Tonic at Revelator Coffee

I paid a visit to Atlanta’s Revelator Coffee on a Saturday around 11am. I was there because I read online that they had a drink that mixed coffee with tonic, and I just had to try it. Apparently I was the only one, because there were only about 4-5 other people in the shop. Of […]

Le Fat Made All My Dreams Come True

Maybe it’s because of my epic trip last year, but lately I am crushing hard on Vietnamese food. Usually in order to get the good stuff, you have to venture into an international part of town like Norcross or Buford Highway. Not that there’s anything wrong with that – I do it all the time. […]

Suwanee Park Tavern

We finally went to check out Suwanee Town Center recently. In addition to a picturesque green space, some shops and some fountains for the kids to play in, it also has of course a bunch of restaurants. Many of them are chains – Ippolito’s, Mellow Mushroom, Five Guys, etc. – but there were also some […]

My Favorite Things about Krog Street Market

I have always loved Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward for its historic, laid-back charm. With the addition of Krog Street Market, it’s only gotten better. While the market is a bit of a destination, it’s just small and quirky enough to fit into the neighborhood and add to its charm versus detract from it. A modern-day […]

Gunshow – All About the ‘Wow Factor’

Kevin Gillespie’s Gunshow is all about the ‘wow factor,’ and I must say, I was wowed. Instead of getting my friends another lame gift card for Christmas, I decided to treat them to a night at this magical eatery. Never being able to predict Friday night traffic in Atlanta, I arrived about 30 minutes before […]

The Top 10 Things I Ate (and Drank) in 2015

Between attending the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, taking a spontaneous trip to Vietnam, and trying a bunch of new restaurants, 2015 was an epic food year for me (hence I had to hire a personal trainer in December). I really stuffed my face good, so it’s hard to pick just a few of the […]

Athens, GA – So much more than football!

Living in the northern part of Lawrenceville, GA, I am almost as close to Athens as I am to Atlanta. My husband and I decided to take a day trip there for our anniversary, and it took us about the same amount of time to get there as it does to get into the city […]

Euphoric Fries at Takorea Dunwoody

I stopped into Dunwoody’s Takorea for a quick lunch the other day. Besides having the most clever name ever, this ultra casual Mexican-Korean spot boasts the best fries on earth. Made with sesame oil and red pepper flakes, they are an addictive mix of sweet and savory flavors with just the perfect amount of crunch. […]

Top 10 Things to Love about the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival

The annual Atlanta Food & Wine Festival (AF&WF), which took place at the end of May, has something for everyone. The massive festival drew together close to 10,000 attendees and more than 250 food and beverage experts for four days of eating, drinking, mingling and learning in picturesque Midtown Atlanta. Depending on which festival events […]

Atlanta Food & Wine Festival – South Carolina Comes to Georgia!

Alongside the class I took, one of the best parts of the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival for me was the “Culinary Road Trip through South Carolina” event on Saturday night, put on by the Discover South Carolina tourism group. Since I’m originally from up north, I thought Georgians were nice, but the folks from […]
