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.

Hattie Marie’s BBQ is a staple for barbecue in Atlanta! They intend to provide the great flavor and essence SouthEast Texas cooking to Georgia. If there’s one thing we love in the south, it is food. Let’s get into it:
Hattie Marie’s BBQ continues to work diligently during this pandemic, as they even provided customers with a discount code to order online. What does the menu look like? Great question! You can find gumbo, fried shrimp and catfish, and all of your barbecue favorites. You won’t need to order an abundance, because their portions are enough to feed a tiger. (Shout out Tiger King)
Every bite I had was freaking amazing! The brisket was extremely juicy and not too fatty. The smoked wings were stunning. I also dropped to one knee and proposed. The sides did not disappoint one bit. The cabbage was surprising to me. It was so flavorful and fresh. Not to sounds cheesy, but the mac & cheese was cheesy goodness! The barbecue sauce should not have been that good. It was smokey and rich with flavor! I prefer this over memphis barbecue sauce everyday.. YEAH I SAID IT. I dipped my wings in the sauce and after my first bite, I looked at my mom like “why is this our first time trying this?”…
Storico Fresca has created a true Italian experience in Atlanta. They locally source their ingredients and also have a grocery store intertwined. Let’s get into it:
The ambiance of Storico Fresca is one of a kind. To find this place is a fun challenge, because it is a basement surrounded by other stores. After walking in, you immediately sense the vibe of authentic Italian food. Fresh pasta being rolled out, sauce being made, and wine poured in several glasses. The lighting is dim, but it serves as a nice intimate setting to devour pasta.
My food came out, and I was ecstatic after ordering Linguine al Pesto and Fritto misto di Mara. The Fritto misto was an appetizer made up of fried calamari, shrimp, and branzino. They were all fried perfectly and went crazy with the splash of lemon. The linguine al pesto arrived, and my literal jaw dropped. The shrimp were plump and natural. The pasta was beautifully cooked. I would clean dishes everyday if it meant eating more of this pasta. This was the best pesto I have tried! This was a fantastic last meal in Atlanta for awhile. I will be at home missing everything about this dinner..
Poor Calvin’s presents asian fusion with southern influences. I was excited since I love both flavor profiles. Let’s get into it:
Poor Calvin’s provides a lovely ambiance with intimate lights and close knit seating. The service was outstanding and was undoubtedly my favorite part of the experience. The servers treat you like family and explain the specials and seasonal options thoroughly.
Time to talk food! I indulged in the lobster fried rice, lamb chops, and seafood hushpuppies. This was my best meal while in Atlanta. The seafood hushpuppies were so subtle yet good! They were hushpuppies filled with lumps of crab meat, grilled salmon, and sea bass cover with a creamy house sauce. Delicious! The lobster fried rice was HUGE. It was fried rice mixed with fresh veggies, lobster meat, and topped off with a fat lobster tail. The lobster was seasoned incredibly. I cried after tearing through that lobster tail..
Before I talk about the lamb chops, I need you to see the picture one more time. This dish was finger lickin’ good. The chops were extremely juicy and not overly fatty, and the flavors were sensational! They laid on a bed of creamy potatoes along side some tasty asparagus. After devouring this meal, I see why people dance after eating great food because I could not sit still..
Another Broken Egg Cafe puts a delicious twists on classic dishes. They aim to keep new favorites on the menu worthy of foodie blogs and Instagram pics. Let’s get into it:
Another Broken Egg Cafe has a menu that includes traditional brunch and seasonal brunch items. It presented so many mouth watering options! A few options to catch my eye were the cinnamon roll french toast, cajun shrimp & grits, and their seasonal sweet potato waffle.
I ordered the cajun shrimp & grits and sunrise spinach omelette w/ sausage. The omelette truly caught me by surprise with how fresh and sensational the flavors were. The omelette was huge, but I could not stop taking more and more bites! You would have thought I was fasting with how quick it was gone. The shrimp & grits made me smile more than knowing Tom Brady wasn’t going to be in the Super Bowl. The cajun seasoning made this dish everything! The creamy grits were amazing and melted right in your mouth. The shrimp and andouille sausage mixed in with the spices was perfect. I was so hungry and excited to dive in, but I quickly whipped my phone out to take these pics
Velvet Taco likes to get funky with their tacos! They believe tacos don’t have to be associated with Tex-Mex. Let’s get into it:
I was already curious of the several flavor combinations, and the worker encouraged me to go with my gut! I ordered the Spicy Tikka Chicken taco and Chicken & Waffles taco. If I felt like eating as much as Charles Barkley, I would’ve also ordered their falafel taco, flank steak taco, and shrimp & grits taco! They also carry margaritas, so they officially won me over.
The spicy tikka taco was absolutely delicious! The flavors were so consistent and rich. It felt like I was eating tikka masala from an Indian restaurant. The chicken and waffles taco was nuts! Not only a waffle as a taco, but a chicken strip laid there covered with bacon and maple syrup. If you guessed that I almost cried because I was so happy, then you were 100% correct. The tacos were good sizes, so I really was able to indulge with every bite. After finishing my tacos, I was so close from going back to the register and saying…
Ted’s Montana Grill was started by Ted Turner for families to sit together and experience classic a American dishes together. That’s what I did! Let’s get into it:
Teds Montana is located right by Centennial park in the middle of downtown Atlanta. A great view with great food is all you can ask for right?
Who doesn’t love a large menu with several items?? But seriously, they had tons of great sounding dishes like the Cedar plank salmon, bison short ribs, and salt & pepper onion rings! It’s not many things that I’m choosing over salmon, so that’s exactly what I ordered.
The salmon came out, and it was perfect. The broccoli had a pinch of garlic and parmesan. So fire! This salmon was SENSATIONAL to say the least
