Char’d City is Charged Up.

Char’d City is a hot and new restaurant located in Baltimore, Maryland. A modern day Mom and Pop shop with a unique twist. I was obsessed with of this place and their potential to grow. Let’s get into it:

  • I fell in love with Char’d City’s ambiance. Their big wood-fired grill, stage for live music, and charming artwork makes this spot one of a kind. There was no dead space inside, so I was constantly amused by the intricate art pieces hanging on the walls. My vision sees them hosting poets, singers and pianists, and other creatives on their stage. Who doesn’t love good live entertainment with their meal?
  • Italian with a north African twist? Does it work? Will it taste good? Hell yes it works! I was stunned after being ambushed by such flavor coming from their Brik rolls and Tajine el Bey. The farm to table vibe was really exposed when I bite into the Brik roll, and I could taste how fresh the potatoes and tuna was! The Tajine aka Tunisian-style quiche was amazing, and the lamb was seasoned to perfection.
  • Can we have a moment of silence for this Charm City Pie?….. It was a simple pie with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, garlic, etc.. HOWEVER, they went crazy and slapped some blue crab on the pie. This was sooooo fire. When they placed this beauty on the table, I immediately looked like..

Gus’ Goes Crazy!

Gus’ Fried Chicken was built from the idea of uniting communities with a special fried chicken recipe. Who doesn’t love fried chicken with a secret spice? Let’s get into it:

  • Gus; is located in downtown Atlanta, but my guy has locations all over the country! I appreciated the down to earth menu. It was one that left you with simple options, but you knew they would all be fire. You can find things like fried pickles, potato salad, mac and cheese. It’s like taking young uncle’s cookout and turning it into profit! I had to order their wings with baked beans and seasoned fries.
  • The sides will be first on the chopping block. The baked beans were spot on what I was thinking. They were sweet but not too sweet. They had the onions and peppers mixed in for a nice bite. The fries are classic. Good crispiness like you’re at a ballpark then finished with seasoned salt and other flavors. However, these wings… I need to run it back! They were juicy, off the bone, and spicy at the same damn time. I was chowing through the chicken so fast and effortlessly that I forgot to touch my drink. If you dare see me eating this and ask me for a bite, I will just stare at you like…

Dulan’s Did It!

Dulan’s is Inglewood’s favorite soul food kitchen! They are known for generous portions and customer service. Sounds like a good combo to me! Let’s get into it:

  • Dulan’s is the perfect example of a Sunday at grandma’s house with thick aromas and lots of joy in the atmosphere. Dulan’s does not hide their secrets, because when you walk inside you can see the display of hot food ready to be served. From fried chicken to baked fish to smothered pork chops, your night was going to be made! And of course, they got sides for DAYS.
  • I absolutely had to try the fried chicken along with mac, greens, and yams. A plate full of this for $15?! Let’s start with the sides. The yams were phenomenal. I almost changed my diet to all yams after eating these. They were sweet and ripe just how I wanted them. The greens were literally from my grandmother. They might give you high cholesterol, but you will devour these! The mac and cheese is always given a critical eye, but it was very good as well. I always appreciate the baked cheese on the mac. It’s chicken timeee. The chicken was extremely juicy. I don’t know what their trick was but it was packed with flavor. The skin delicious too. Real fried chicken eaters know the skin is important. I had a blast, but I woke up from the itis like..

Phew Pizza is Phire!

Phew Pies is an up and coming pizza joint in Atlanta. Phew Pies is easily the most creative pizza in the city right, and I am not talking about just presentation. Let’s get into it:

  • I discovered Phew Pies on Instagram (@PhewPies), and I was left in awe when I saw his different pizza creations. With him being located in West Atlanta, he decided to curate some pies that truly embody the culture. If you grew up here, then you know that lemon pepper wings were always at the function. However, only the real city folks know about lemon pepper wet. Imagine that on a pizza for a second.. Magical.
  • PhewPies has original favorites such as cheese, pepperoni, and veggie pies. His specialties are the show stopper though with hot lemon pepper, oxtail, and po boy pies. I had to dive into the hot lemon pepper pie head first! No napkins in sight, just vibes. I loved the crust of the pie first off. That set the record straight that this was legit. The flavor was immaculate though. I was hot sauce on the pallet then lemon pepper sauce followed by gooey cheese. great combination that also included chicken bits in the mix. The pizza comes with 2 wings on top for when you want to step away from pizza and nibble on something else. I shared a slice with some friends, and we all ended up dancing like..

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..
