You could say it’s always a feeding frenzy at Atlanta Eats’ HQ, but to us it’s just another hard day’s work. We’re sharing the best things we ate last week to give you some food inspiration for the week ahead. Check out AtlantaEatsTV on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for a constant stream of pictures if this doesn’t quite cure your food porn fix…
Mashed Potatoes from Chama Gaucha (Buckhead)
After you’ve had your fill of prime meats from Buckhead’s hottest Brazilian steakhouse, you’re going to want some delicious sides to complement this over-the-top dining experience. In true Brazilian steakhouse fashion, gauchos circle the spacious dining room with unlimited selections of food, there’s a salad bar that is seemingly never ending and a piping hot dish of cheesy mashed potatoes puts your palate in a very happy place. Time to drive up Piedmont and check out this mainstay. (Psst- we just filmed here and will be airing Chama Gaucha’s segment next month!)
Fried Chicken Sandwich from Highland Bakery (Old Fourth Ward)
Highland Bakery is known for signature indulgent items like Peanut Butter Caramelized Banana Challah French toast, Fried Chicken Eggs Benedict, Sweet Potato Pancakes…etc. Now they have added another. Their brand new Fried Chicken Sandwich isn’t your typical run of the mill sandwich. It’s hand crafted on homemade jalapeno cheddar focaccia bread, stacked with pimento cheese, buttermilk fried chicken, vine ripe tomatoes and topped with another layer of their savory bread. It’s love at first bite for this one.
Margherita Pizza from Campania (Alpharetta)
In a world of pizza possibilities, we gravitate toward topping-heavy varieties and sometimes forget the understated simplicity of a margherita pizza. With only a few high quality ingredients (olive oil, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese & basil) it’s a difficult task to perfect them all. Campania now has a wood burning portable oven so each pie can be fresh and piping hot wherever they go! We had a pizza (or two…ok let’s be honest, three) at Taste of Alpharetta last week and we could’ve sworn we were dining in their brick and mortar location, or even Naples, Italy.
