Jason and I went to the Taste of East Atlanta tonight. The East Atlanta Village is a few blocks of bars and restaurants. It looks like a lot of food but the portions were much smaller than they appear. I didn’t get anything at the majority of the places because they didn’t really have anything that I wanted.
Graveyard Tavern. Jason had a slider.
Then we went to Slush where I had a smoothie. It was a little natural store, but it didn’t have much merchandise. There was nothing that I couldn’t get at a regular grocery store.
Next was Gravity Pub where Jason had some chicken wings.
Glenwood. I had a small shocktop (not a jager bomb which the cup says), about 3 pickle chips which I thought were too salty and Jason had a pork sandwich.
Cantina La Casita. I’m not even sure what these were except that I ordered the bean and cheese one but when it came out, it was deep friend and I didn’t want it. Jason ordered some sort of chicken tostada thing and I ate that instead without eating the fried part. Jason also answered a trivia question correctly and won a beer.
The Earl. Jason had seafood gumbo.
Holy Taco. They didn’t have tacos though. Instead, they had corn with mayonnaise and queso fresca. Bleh. I opted for a plain one.
Midway Pub. I had a veggie burger with goat cheese spread and Jason had a mahi-mahi salad sandwich.
We stopped at Kroger on the way home thought I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this. It was not on the Taste of East Atlanta tour.
I had fun but didn’t really think any of the food was that great. A lot of the places had chicken wings and sliders, which I passed up. These bars have really eclectic food menus so I was sort of disappointed that they weren’t really showcasing that at all. There were also about 5 places that we didn’t go to.
I’m off to South Carolina after work tomorrow to visit the [future] in-laws. We’ll be back on Sunday morning.
