Old Lady Gang! Turn up

Old Lady Gang is Kandi Burress’ baby in Atlanta. She gives credit to her old ladies who whipped up some of the best food as she grew up! I had to give it a shot, so let’s get into it:

  • Old Lady Gang is more than a restaurant, it is an experience which I believe Kandi was looking for. You are going to find groovy music, modern seating, and a busy environment. When I went, I think someone was shooting a movie outside. I was mad confused, but it fit the aesthetic perfectly. Their menu presents down south classics with a twist. You will find fried then grilled wings, deep fried deviled eggs, shrimp and grits w/ vodka cream sauce, and more! I felt the itis already creeping up on me before I even ordered.
  • I ordered the OLG fried then grilled wings and a cajun shrimp po’ boy, because who doesn’t love po’ boys. I didn’t even have take a bite before my mouth started salivating. the wings were heavenly. They really shook the game up with that fried then grilled method, because the wings were perfectly crunchy and juicy. The sauce was for sure made from grandma’s recipe, because I did’t have a clue what was in it yet it was delicious! The po’boy was exactly what I needed. The shrimp had great spice and flavor throughout, and the sauce was damn near better than being hugged. The shrimp and sauce combo still sits on my mind till this day. I wonder if i’ll ever have a better combo than that…

Grass VBQ Joint Goes!!

Grass VBQ Joint is bringing vegan smoked meat to Atlanta. Chef Terry ensures that they use fresh, local ingredients to put together these vegan handheld bites! Let’s get into it:

  • Grass VBQ Joint is black owned and connected within a brewery which adds to their aesthetic! I went here knowing that I wanted something vegan and something that will remind me of a summer barbecue. Side note: Summertime by Will Smith is always my mood. At Grass VBQ Joint, you will see a variety of sandwiches on the menu such as the Clucker, Nashville Hot Chic’n, Smoked Brat, and many others. I felt like I was on Deal or no Deal, I was analyzing and debating between sandwiches hoping I chose right. I knew I couldn’t choose wrong though!
  • I picked the clucker as my lunch, and I was pleased when I saw it. The bun was glistening, sauce was gushing, and the smell was sensational when I opened the box. Before I dove right into it, I snapped my pic and sat their cheesing at how good this baby looked. First bite in, I was bombarded by the taste of this Bama BBQ sauce. It was amazing. I could taste the freshness and smokiness in the fake meat. Grass VBQ makes their fake meat in-house, and that eliminates all that thought of “what if it tastes too processed or fake?”. This was eliminated in my mind after taking bites in the sandwich. Also, the pickles and onions add that nice touch to enhance that freshness component. By bite #4, the sandwich was on its last leg! Even though I was about full, I looked at that last bite like..

Slutty Vegan? Yes!

Slutty Vegan is the home of Atlanta’s best vegan burger in my opinion (this could be a fact though!). Slutty Vegan was founded by a black queen by the name of Pinky Cole. Slutty food is  overindulgent, gooey, messy, and irresistible. Let’s get into it:

  • I finally can say that I have tried Slutty Vegan. Ever since they opened in 2018, there was been crowds of people waiting to get one of their burgers each day. Their menu is funky and creative! You will find options such as “One Night Stand”, “Hollywood Hooker”, and “Heaux Boy”. Some burgers feature avocado, jalepeños, or jerk plantains. They all sounded good to me as I was deciding what to order. No matter what I chose, at least I knew this meal would be vegan and slutty.
  • I ordered the One Night Stand and the Super Slut. First up, the bun.. They use Hawaiian buns, so that adds a layer of flavor. The One Night Stand is their classic burger topped with bacon, cheese, and caramelized onions. The vegan bacon was smokey and crispy! Most vegan bacon is chewy, and they gave us crispiness. That’s love. The slut sauce was amazing. I couldn’t tell you what it was made of. Nothing from this burger screamed vegan to me, but it was phenomenal. The melted cheese was messy yet so tasty. The grade I’m giving them is an A+. If this what it feels like to be a slutty vegan, I need more of that.

Bkk Cookshop! You read it right

BKK Cookshop is not your typical Thai noodle house. The creative cocktails, asian beers, and street-food-inspired appetizers made this a top Thai restaurant for me. Let’s get into it:

  • Bkk Cookshop is small, however they have turned their restaurant into an intimate and decorative space! I loved how this place felt and looked authentic. It was not one of those gentrified Thai places where you walk in and nobody there looks like they anything about Thai cuisine LOL.
  • The menu presented tons of nice options such as happy hour $3 appetizers, delicious cocktails, and vegan & gluten free alternatives! I am a fried rice enthusiast, so I bodied their spicy basil rice with chicken. I also ordered Thai gyoza, and these lasted on the table maybe 34 seconds before being devoured.
  • The flavors… were amazing! Fried rice is typically a dish that you will know how it will taste. This spicy basil rice gave me flavors I never knew I needed. The chili peppers, fresh basil, and marinated chicken made for a great combination! The gyoza were perfectly battered and paired impeccably with the soy ginger sauce. Everything was so tasty. This is my favorite Thai spot right now, and I WILL DEFEND IT..
