Zesto


Today I had to do a walkability assessment in Little Five Points for my Macro-Social Determinants of Health class. It was beautiful weather and lots of people were out and about for Halloween. I decided to stop at Zesto on my walk back to my car and get an icecream cone. Of course icecream always makes me thirsty so I got a coke too. And it had crushed ice! Yum.

Happy Halloween!

Iberian Pig


I had been looking forward to going to the Iberian Pig for so long and we finally went last night for Whitney's birthday! I had the Iberian burger and it was delicious! The eggplant fries were so original. I had to give some of them away because I don't like fried things that much. I noticed that some of the small plates were ridiculously small. This is not a sharing tapas place! Next time I'd like to try the mushroom flatbread. It is 15 inches so atleast that can be shared. I wish the restaurant gave more warning on what was big vs. small because its very hard to know ahead of time. http://www.iberianpigatl.com/index.php.

Wonderful World of Burgers


I decided to try this place today since it is right near campus in Emory Village and I always drive past it. I ordered a chop chop salad and a veggie burger. The salad had a delicious spicy ginger dressing and I really enjoyed it. The veggie burger was a disaster. It was FRIED and reminded me of corn bread from the state fair and falafel mixed together. Gross.


Shiki Sushi



This post is old, but it is from when I went to Shiki sushi at home over break! It wasn't as good as the last time and that's because I forgot to order the Wasabi roll. I had the shiki crunch and the sear-sea roll (which was a little too fishy with the seared tuna).

Cafe Sage Hill

Not much to say about this. $5 and pretty good. I like how they gave me a TON of macaroni this time. The tomato/okra mixed thing up in the right corner was a little off. And cornbread burnt as usual.

Zaya


After seeing the Dalai Lama (!!!) speak today, Ana and I ate on campus at Zaya, the mediterranean place. (The more casual Emory location of this:http://www.zayarestaurant.com/). It was decent, but I didn't really like the chicken in my chicken shawarma sandwich. I have been there before and I think it is overpriced and not as good in comparison with both greek fiesta and my favorite greek place on hillsborough street from college Jasmin Mediterranean Bistro http://ninashoes.com/neva-powder-sand-luster-satin--14354 (THE BEST PLACE EVER!).


I also realized too late that everything on my plate was yellow....(the wrap, hummus, AND pasta salad). I'm having leftovers for dinner.

thaicoon


I had Thaicoon over the weekend. I got the double shrimp roll instead of my usual. It was kind of small.

Mint2


Yesterday at school our Convos on Tap event had food from Mint2. http://mint2togo.com/ I had been wanting Thai food so I was excited. The salad dressing was delicious. There were two meat dishes and I went with the tofu and vegetable dish with rice. It was cold because it was catered and outside, but otherwise very good. My favorite surprise was the little fried dumpling type things with ground up chicken and curry in it. I liked that we got to try that and spring rolls along with the salad and main course. There seem to be a ton of Thai places here that I like!

McCormick & Schmick's

For Addison's birthday dinner the family ate at McCormick & Schmick's at Crabtree.http://www.mccormickandschmicks.com/. I had the Blue Crab Tower with Avocado, Mango, Orange Vinaigrette and a cup of the Seafood and Roasted Corn Chowder. As a family we shared the Crab and Shrimp Artichoke Dip with Pita Chips appetizer. I found that the pita chips were a bit too covered in cheese when the crab dip itself would have been more than enough. I enjoyed my blue crab tower, but I wanted it to be like the crab and avocado salad at Cellar 56 in Atlanta - and it was not. It was good in itself though! However, I got the idea to order it from the online picture - and it did not include the 2 shrimp on top like on the website! I will post a picture for comparison.

Homegrown


I know that every time I go home we always eat at Homegrown, but it is so good! The rest of the family shared a pizza and I complained because it had sausage on it, but then I ended up picking off the sausage and having a piece. I had some cheese fries (I gave the leftovers to Addison) and a salad whose picture mysteriously disappeared from my phone.

Salem Street Pub




Just got home this afternoon! I flew and the flight was one of the best I've ever had. Zero turbulence. Tonight I went with the family to Salem Street Pub in downtown Apex. I had the Carolina Burger and a salad. It was yummy. Even though the burger had chili on it I decided to get the black bean and rice patty to be partially vegetarian.

Thaicoon


I got Thaicoon tonight to celebrate fall break starting. I tried the cucumber salad for the first time which was really good and my shrimp tempura roll tasted extra fresh and delicious!

Today was the building dedication for the new building at Rollins. I happened to get out of class early and get to eat some of the tasty food at the reception!

Fontaine's



Tonight Cecile, Ana and I ate at Fontaine's Oyster House in the Highlands. Ana and Cecile took advantage of the $6 oysters and I had the mussels and a bowl of potato soup. It was delicious. We ate outside on the heated patio area that they share with Noche and had a great time. It was great fall weather and fall food.

Perogies


Last night I ate perogies for the first time ever. I just bought them frozen and cooked them on the stove with some onions. I almost burnt everything while I was heating up my butternut squash, but they were pretty decent. I'd like to think of something else to have them with. The box suggested a wide variety of things including sour cream and salsa to alfredo sauce (gross). So I will have to see what I like.

Braves game icecream


Last night at the Braves game we got to sit on a VIP level. They had sushi, pasta bar, and a full icecream shop! It was so nice, I never want to sit on the regular level again! And no, I didn't eat all of this icecream. It was wayyy too much.

The Varsity




Last Saturday before the Georgia Tech & State game, mom and I ate at the varsity. We got there really early because we were worried about parking and traffic, so we ended up eating hamburgers at 10am! They were surprisingly good and I liked the slaw. After the game we stopped by the Varsity again for an Icee and coke because it was so hot. Of course it has been cool every day since that game! Atleast we won!
