Endulge. Indulge. Both of them

Endulge Cupcakes is black women owned and began as a dream for two former educators! They pride themselves on baking fashionably scrumptious cupcakes. Let’s get into it:

  • Endulge sits a colorful neighborhood surrounded by other various stores and stops. However, Endulge catered to the customer with their drive-thru window! Call me fat, but why don’t more cupcake shops have drive thrus? I pulled up to the window and noticed their appetizing menu. They have your typical basics such as vanilla, strawberry, and lemon. Or, you can step your taste buds up and get their banana pudding, cinnamon toast, or red velvet cupcake. Before she even could say how can I help you, I blurted out yes one red velvet cupcake for me please. I looked crazy and apologized, but real fat boys know how tasty a red velvet cupcake can be.
  • When I took that first bite from of that red velvet, I had to go back to the window and ask “WHO MADE THIS CUPCAKE?”. It was perfectly moist (we all hate this word but it fits). The cream cheese icing was light and worked impeccably. 5 star rating for me! I also, had the chocolate w/ peanut butter cupcake. This was stunning as well. I have never had a more similar reese’s experience. The cake part was superb even with the strong peanut butter icing. Lastly, I had the strawberry cupcake. I am not sure who needs to hear this, but strawberry cupcakes are a top 5 flavor. And this one was quality as hell. The freshness of ingredients was noticeable. The icing was packed with flavor. Next time I hear someone say “it’s dessert time”, I am going to look at them like this and say Endulge..

Dat Fire Jerk Chicken!

Dat Fire Jerk Chicken is bringing Atlanta authentic Jamaican food with a healthier agenda. With a name like Dat Fire Jerk Chicken, I can’t help but be interested to try it. Let’s get into it:

  • Dat Fire Jerk Chicken prides itself on providing healthier Jamaican food but keeping those distinctive flavors alive. Just by looking at their menu, I notice their unique menu off rip. Besides that fire jerk chicken, you will find curry tofu, jerk chicken hoagie, and the infamous oxtails. You could smell the spices and sauces brewing as soon as you step in the door. It was like mature and bold just like your grandmother’s perfume cabinet. You know Jamaicans will give you a bang for your buck and stuff your plate, so I was pleased with how affordable this was. I came in with a $20 and almost left with 3 plates LOL.
  • Well how the jerk? Was it fire?? It sure was! It caught me by surprise, because I have seen multiple types of jerk sauces. However, their sauce is light and tangy almost. It wouldn’t be jerk without the spice! Every bite left you craving a little more sauce. It wasn’t but spiciest jerk I have had, but it definitely felt like the healthiest. The rice and peas were plentiful as they were the perfect combo for the jerk chicken. The chicken was falling off the bone and grilled exquisitely. The greens were off the charts also! They did not have that heavy sodium feel to them which played into their healthy vision. I should have put the jerk sauce on everything bruh! Moral of the story: The flavor satisfied every Jamaican craving I wanted, but it also was a healthier alternative. With that being said, it is time to dance off this food..

Trederick’s is Tremendous!

Trederick’s Seafood is known for preparing their fresh seafood daily and packing it with flavor. Who doesn’t want fresh seafood and great flavor? Let’s get into it:

  • I stopped in Trederick’s in search for some seafood since I was tired of my normal meals during the week. However, I came to discover their variety of menu items that all screamed “try me”. Per usual, I stopped by when I was already hungry and ready to eat. I’m scanning the menu to see items such as Trederick’s seafood bucket, shrimp & grits, lemon pepper wings, and more. Have y’all ever asked the worker “which would you get?” LOL that was me in there trying to decide, but I came to the conclusion that I need something fresh and something fried.
  • I ordered the seafood bucket which includes crab legs, shrimp, corn, and potatoes. My hungry ass also ordered teriyaki wings and fries. Let’s just say this seafood bucket was nothing to play with. They seasoned everything like their job was on the line! Every bite gave me life. The potatoes were broiled to perfection. The corn was marinating in the broil juices, so that was tasty. That seafood though was everything they talked it up to be! It was all super fresh and always tastes better dipped in butter. You guessed it, the wings were also bomb too. The teriyaki was not overwhelming, and the skin was not too tough. I will for sure be back. You will see me with a chicken wing in one hand and a crab leg in the other as I am dancing like..

Sweet Stack. Needs That!

Sweet Stack is an odd but fun inspired dessert bar in Atlanta. If there is one thing they know how to do, it is being innovative with their delicious ice cream! Let’s get into it:

  • As soon as I arrived at sweet stack, I noticed the youthful environment which meant the flavors would probably take me on an adventure. They immediately saw me grazing the menu and offered a donut sandwich. My crazy self entertained the idea..”yes! let me go ahead and get that”. I noticed they had cookie sandwiches also along with cones and cups. The customer service was so helpful, because I had no clue what the heck to throw on this donut ice cream sandwich LOL. You will find flavors such as Amber Rose, Black Panther, cereal milk, and many more. Also, THEY HAVE VEGAN OPTIONS. That’s always a plus.
  • Back to my freaky order, I got the donut sandwich with cookie monster ice cream along with a side scoop of Black Panther. They cooled the donut, so that it was more firm to hold the ice cream in place. The cookie monster flavor consisted of blue icing, vanilla ice cream, and cookie dough & Oeros. That first bite sold me that I was not that crazy, because it was delicious. The donut was not overwhelming the flavor of the ice cream at all. The ice cream was actually amazing! The Black Panther consisted of vanilla ice cream, hints of coconut, and charcoal. STRANGE COMBO I KNOW. However, it was extremely well put together. The balance of the flavors worked perfectly. The coconut was not overpowering at all. It was sweet with a touch of freshness! The charcoal was more so to add color to the ice cream. And before you all comment on having charcoal in ice cream, I must ask..

Daddy D’z BBQ Plz

Daddy D’z is an Atlanta staple known for their slow cooked meats and comfort food. They use a hickory & oak pit for the meat, because there are no shortcuts to their recipe! Lets get into it:

  • Daddy D’z is a small barbecue joint, and you might even arrive and wonder if you’re at the right spot. You are! You will see the meat smoker going as soon as you pull in. However, we came to eat and noticed their menu including your typical barbecue along with southern favorites. You will see things such as brisket, smoked turkey, fried okra, and red beans & rice. Have you ever been a cookout with your uncle and see him cooking with a rag on his shoulder, I definitely felt like it was the same situation here. I knew good food was on the way!
  • The difference between good barbecue vs great barbecue sits in the brisket to me. If you can make a tasty brisket, you should be eligible to win yourself an Oscar for that performance. I bit into my brisket sandwich and felt the slow tear coming. The meat was perfectly juice but tender. The toast was lightly toasted to perfect. It laid in a bed of tangy barbecue sauce that added to the flavor. That brisket had no chance of lasting more than 4 bites. Sides are important, and Daddy D’z sides hit the spot. The greens were packed with love and flavor. Every bite was better and better. The candied yams were the other star of the show. That hint of brown sugar coating on the yams made all of the difference! Their mac & cheese was good, but I just felt like I felt a connection to the other sides. Before throwing away my plate, I noticed a few scraps of brisket left and had to clean those up too..

Soul Vegetarian. That’s it!

Soul Vegetarian is one of the largest chains of Vegan Restaurants. They always say that they were vegan before it was cool! I’m not vegan, but I am cool. Let’s get into it:

  • Soul Vegetarian has you covered if you are in the mood for soul food. They don’t have your friend chicken or your pork chops, but they make all of your favorite sides vegan friendly! On their menu, you will find mac n cheese, veggie burger, and barbecue cauliflower. I live and die for soul food sides, so all I needed to see on the menu was mac n cheese, greens, and sweet potatoes. We all know that the best naps come after soul food!
  • I had to taste test a bunch of things of course, so I ordered black eye peas & rice, mac & cheese, greens, stir fry w/ tofu, and sweet potatoes.Where do I start? I’ll start with the greens. They were extremely fresh and reminded me of home. The sweet potatoes were amazing, and I wish I ate them slower to throughly enjoy them! The black eye peas were very solid. I don’t know if they should have a ton of flavor, but they did their job on my plate! The stir fry was flavorful, the vegetables added the perfect mix. Lastly, the mac & cheese went CRAZY. They found the balance in making a great vegan cheese and baking it. I had not heard of this place, but they won me over. Actually, I feel like the real winner after that meal! Call me Bubba..
