Hearth Pizza Tavern Review

This pizza tavern is located in the Whole Foods Shopping Center on Roswell Rd. in Sandy Springs. Luke and I were at Perimeter Mall and decided to try Hearth since we were in the area and had heard great things. Despite almost getting run over in the parking lot, I was glad to try this place. I was thinking if my life is ending why can't it be AFTER I eat one of my most favorite things . . . pizza!! I ordered the Crispy Brussels Sprouts. They were awesome of course with pancetta and parmesan cheese mixed in, then drizzled Balsamic on top.  Luke ordered the Ring of Fire. It had a whole slew of goodies on it; garlic chili oil, chorizo salami, sliced cherry peppers, caramelized onions,  roasted cremini mushrooms, cheese and cilantro. Sounds like a lot, but I had a bite and it was delicious. He ate all so it must have been good.   Pizza has been my biggest sacrifice being on Paleo, so when I saw they used 100% organic flour I was in. I ord

South City Kitchen Restaurant Review

South City Kitchen has been around a long time and reminds me of the good ole days when Buckhead bars were booming and the lounges in renovated houses were the places to hang. I hadn't eaten here in awhile and wanted to see if the food was just as good as I remembered. Luke ordered the scallops for an appetizer and they were delicious with a pecan pesto and tomato mustard seed relish served over a boiled peanut puree. The scallops had a nice crust and were cooked perfectly on the inside; the flavors spot on! I am a sucker for the decadent She-Crab Soup and knew when I saw it on the menu that I had to order it. It didn't disappoint with its rich taste of goodness.  Luke ordered the Shrimp and Mussel Jambalaya with chicken, andouille sausage, and okra in a spicy tomato sauce. It was delicious and perfectly cooked.  I ordered the Roasted Filet of Beef. It was so hearty and scrumptious. The beef was tender and loved the dimensi

Zab e Lee Restaurant Review

This sleepy Thai Restaurant located west of Hartsfield-Jackson airport is one of the best Thai restaurants in all of Atlanta. It's located in a run down strip mall on Old National in College Park and is a perfect place when you want to grab a quick bite with someone who's intown for a long layover. That was the case for me, my good friend Ted was in town so we decided to go there for some food for the soul.  We ordered a couple of appetizers to share. The Beef Satay was the first and was great. The beef was tender and the peanut sauce perfect. They also served it with a cucumber and carrots in a rice vinaigrette, nice and refreshing. The second appetizer was the Dancing Shrimp, everytime I go to Zab e Lee I order this delectable dish. It is bursting with zesty flavor. The shrimp is served on a bed of cabbage, red onion, and carrot. They add a dressing of hot chili Thai pepper, raw garlic, and lime juice. The combination is spectacular with a perfe

Chai Pani Indian Street Food Review

This cute little eatery in Decatur is delicious and a great way to try some Indian Street Food. It is located on Ponce in the old Watershed Restaurant location. My friend Gina and I were supposed to go for a walk and catch up, however it was raining so we met for lunch instead and meet her new beau! I ordered the Matchstick Okra Fries. They were seasoned with lime and salt. They were crispy without a slimy texture at all, a nice change up from your everyday appetizer. Gina had the Uttapam which is a savory crepe made with rice and lentils. It is gluten-free, but not Paleo friendly because of the lentils and rice. The Uttapam was topped with carrots, peas, onion, cilantro, ginger, and chilies. It was served with Sambar, a spicy, tangy vegetable stew and coconut chutney. Luke and Adam had the Maharaja Lamb Burger. It was made from scratch, in-house, seasoned with ginger, garlic, mint, ground pistachio, and house roasted spices. The seasoning went great
