GBR Grille

GBR Grille sits in East point and emphasizes their quality of food rather than the overhead. Price point and satisfaction is their lane! That’s the lane I like to pull up in. Let’s get into it:

  • GBR Grille fits in as a fast casual dining place, but they cater to a variety of appetites. Have you ever been starving and can’t put your finger on what you want?? Tacos or burgers? Salad or Barbecue?? GBR Grille is the perfect place to have that mental breakdown! They have a beautiful range from spicy jerk burgers, blackened chicken tacos, shrimp grill mix, and many more. You literally win with whatever you impulse choice you make.
  • I settled on the shrimp mix bowl and spicy teriyaki wings w/ fries. I’ll start with the more simple dish aka spicy teriyaki wings. They saucy, plump, and spicy. I was struck in awe of the quality of the wings. The spicy teriyaki was a great balance of heat and tanginess! The fries were a nice compliment to the wings. We all HATE when the fries suck. The shrimp bowl was made up grilled shrimp, yellow rice, loads of veggies, and a sauce of your choice. It was magnificent. Of course, I loved the portions and the freshness of every vegetable. You know it’s good when your bite is just rice, grilled onions, and spinach, and that excites you. The flavor was on every bite. I will be back soon and the day after. I will tell those who ask exactly where to go..

Sammy Cheezecake on My Plate!

Sammy Cheezecakes prides itself on making cakes with the finest ingredients that are the perfect size. I love a fat slice of cake, so their perfect slices fit my criteria! Let’s get into it:

  • Sammy Cheezecakes has struck the Atlanta scene by surprise, but it makes sense when you go and see their wide variety of slices. They keep the store simple with a countertop and lots and lots of cakes displayed. If you are someone who goes to the counter and freezes up on your order, then I recommend checking their options ahead of time. They are extremely friendly, so they making choosing the perfect slice easy! Some of their options consists of oreo cheesecake, german chocolate cake, red velvet cake, strawberry shortcake, and many others.
  • I am a true sucker for anything Oreo. It could be an Oreo popcorn, and I’d have to try it! However, this Oreo cheesecake was magnificent and great size. The whipped cream and the crust complimented the cheesecake excellently. I could eat that slice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That’s how satisfied I am. I couldn’t go and just get one slice, so I walked out of there with a piece of strawberry cake also. Strawberry cake has a special place in my heart, because it is so balanced. Have you ever had a piece of cake that blew your mind? it was moist. It was rich. It left you speechless like..

Healthful Essence is Essential!

Healthful Essence is a spiritual creation to share nourishing and healthy Caribbean food with the world. Vegan food has now adopted some classics such as Jerk Chicken! Let’s get into it:

  • Healthful Essence is all about taking care of you. They live and breathe the vegan lifestyle, and they have a surplus of items to bring positivity to your life. From sea moss drinks to banana nut bread to curried vegetables. They ensure everything is plant base then add their flavor to it! From their cooked menu, you will find items like macaroni and un-cheese, Jamaican patties, jerk un-chicken. It’s the options for me!!!
  • I ordered a jerk plate with rice & peas along with cabbage. I’ll start with the cabbage. It was fresh, and they were seasoned perfectly. It was like they were made with a dash of spicy too. Even without bacon fat, this cabbage was still slapping! The rice and peas felt and tasted like the classic dish it is. It did need one more seasoning in that pan though to win my tastebuds fully over. The Jerk un-chicken was one of the best vegan meat substitutes I have had. If you have a jerk sauce that is fire, then I will love you and tell everyone to show love.

Amalfi Pizza. I’m all for pizza!

Amalfi Pizza brings traditional Neapolitan pizza and flavors to Atlanta. After studying and doing an apprenticeship in Italy, they decided to open up shop here. Who doesn’t love great pizza and pasta?! Let’s get into it:

  • Amalfi Pizza has one of the best ambiances I have seen. As soon as you walk in, the restaurant turns into an Italian walkways with Juliet style balconies and iron chandeliers. It makes for a great date night if you and bae don’t mind sitting inside. My hungry butt went straight to the menu and fell in love. Lots of traditional Italian dishes can be found such as gnocchi, ricotta stuffed crust pizza, and classic pastas.
  • I went straight to the pizzas and stumbled on the Diavola. This pizza was topped with spicy salami, hot peppers, fior de latte, pecorino and basil. I don’t expect you to know all of those ingredients, because I was for sure lost! I knew things would be fresh and authentic though, so I felt fine. When it came out, the aromas were heavenly out the wood fired oven. The spicy salami was amazing and probably my favorite part. The crust with the ricotta cheese had me feeling like I could move to Italy right now. Everything was fresh and working together. I was about to walk to the kitchen in my costume and look at the chef like…

Local Green is the Dream!

Local Green Atlanta is a fast casual restaurant whose mission is to redefine healthy, affordable eating. I wholeheartedly support putting more healthy options in areas that need them! Let’s get into it:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is dbd7c78c-7f3a-4643-baeb-ab7b8097a45c-1.jpg
  • Local Green is exactly what it sounds like plus more! Not only are their colors and signage green, but just about all of their food options have green in them. If you’re a superstitious person, i’m sure you will make the case that it is indeed your lucky day around all of that green. Their menu contains a diverse selection that includes a power kale salad, monsta shrimp burger, vegan Oh Boy burger, and more. No chickens here for your basic butt!
  • I ordered the Oh boy burger and Air fries. First off, this burger was monstrous. I got the “OH boy” feeling. This burger resembled no vegan burger i have had so far. It looked and was presented like a $24 burger from a steakhouse. That beauty was extremely juicy and topped with natural vegetables! The mock cheese gave me all of the feels of gooey real cheese. That burger was not backing down from me. I struggled to finish for real! The air fries were cajun seasoned and had a little heat. It was a great combination! If I had some wine, I might have passed out from joy…
