One could say it’s always a feeding frenzy at Atlanta Eats’ HQ, but to us, it’s just another hard day at work. We’re showcasing the best things we ate last week to give you some food inspiration for the week ahead.

Kale Pekoras from Chai Pani (Decatur)
In the mood for something perfectly spicy? These savory, fresh Kale Pekoras are served warm and crispy, fried in homemade curried chickpea batter. Complimented by a smooth, sweet yogurt and green chutney, the flavors really compliment each other and provide a unique combination for your tastebuds. Chai Pani has captured the uniqueness of Indian Street food while honoring their commitment to providing the freshest ingredients. With food sourced locally whenever possible and a focus on health and environmental sustainability, this spot prides itself on being authentic, honest and delicious!
BB Pork Baos from Ba Bellies (Peachtree Corners)
If you’ve never tried a bao, aka a steamed & filled bun in various Chinese cuisines, there’s no better time than the present! Ba Bellies’ version is a true symphony of flavors, combining salty, locally raised pork, Asian chili spiced barbecue sauce, pickled shallots, cilantro, scallion & honey butter glaze on a sweet, flavorful bun. We’re drooling just thinking about it! Come devour every morsel of this unique dish and then find your way over to the bar, complete with 10 different beers on draft. Ba Bellies’ entire Asian fusion menu is creative and innovative, making for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. You’re going to love the simple yet bold flavors combined with the trendy yet welcoming atmosphere!
Pastitsio from Athens Pizza (Decatur)
A true feast fit for Zeus! Wide tubed pasta is baked in a spiced traditional meat sauce, then layered with creamy béchamel, a rich white sauce made with milk. But there’s more! Save room because this yummy plate comes with spanakopita, the magical Greek trifecta of cheese, herbs and filo dough. These authentic plates in tandem with the diner-like atmosphere create an experience that saves you the airfare to Athens. Atlantans have been craving Athens Pizza’s real Greek food since 1966, so let their legacy do the talking and stop by!
