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…
Sandwiches at Star Provisions (Westside)
There is something to be said about a place that masters the craft of a casual lunch. Their sandwiches are far from simple, filled with such depth of flavor you can’t believe you’re eating at an indoor picnic table! We sampled a few sandwich specials that totally took our taste buds to a new level. Check them out!
(Korean BBQ beef with shortribs, Kimchi, cucumbers, fresh herbs, mayonnaise, on a fresh hoagie)
(Shrimp Po’ Boy with lettuce, tomato, pickle, Cajun mayonnaise, on a fresh hoagie)
(Classic chicken salad sandwich)
Shwarma Pita at Falafel King (Decatur)
We have an Emory grad among us here at Atlanta Eats… and were consequently forced against our will to his old stomping grounds. (Fine, not too much force we were excited for some Druid Hills grub). I pulled up to the small establishment with an Italian man for the logo, selling shwarma and sushi of all random combinations. I can’t say I’m upset about the untraditional take on eclectic cuisine. Our pita pockets of hot seasoned chicken and sliced vegetables came to our table in baskets and we immediately doused them in spicy mayo. I hadn’t left Falafel King 5 minutes without craving a second helping! Next time, I may even try sushi!
Breakfast Sandwich from Sugar Shack (Brookhaven)
I’ve had many breakfast sandwiches in my day, but I finally found one that suits all my needs. For a quality breakfast sandwich, I require fresh baked bread, some sort of vegetable component, eggs (obviously), and cheese of some kind with an optional addition of bacon. If bacon is included, it needs to be thick cut and so overcooked it can stand on its own. I looked at Sugar Shack’s breakfast menu and I was immediately drawn to their egg and roasted red pepper Panini. It’s simple, but it is made on fresh ciabatta, with a perfectly cooked egg omelet, roasted red peppers and smothered in goat cheese. It’s my new go-to.
