Grub Burger Bar

Voodoo Burger

Absinthe mushrooms top this burger along with swiss cheese and Tabasco mayo. We immediately broke into a discussion about the possibility of a perfect grilled cheese topped with those fabulous absinthe mushrooms. This was a good burger topped […]

JR’s Log House

Cornbread

Again, quite nice. It’s dense (but not too dense), delicate and crumbly.

Fried Catfish, Okra, & Collards

Again, its served piping hot straight out of the fryer. Every time we’ve entered JR’s thinking, “Eh, I’m just […]

Penang

Sambal Petal

Tender Shrimp, Green Beans, Red Pepper, And Onions Sautéed In A Richly Flavored Sauce (With Mild Heat) With Shrimp Paste

We love this dish. It’s an all-time favorite.

Penang Atlanta’s Assam Laksa

Wild Heaven Craft Beers Eschaton (Belgian Style Quadruple Ale)

We loved our first taste of […]

Touched with smoke and gorgeously tender, this divine piece of salmon was a delight topping buttery, toasty fregula. But, the deep dark woodsy appeal of those beautiful black […]

Chocolate Bars

Theo Red Hot Cinnamon Love Crunch

They say red hot. And, they mean red hot. The crispy, crunchy streaks of cinnamon brittle are fiery hot. The cinnamon oil flavor and heat dominate the chocolate. This bar definitely falls firmly in the “interesting” category.

Divine Chocolate

Divine Chocolate Dark Chocolate (70%) With Raspberry Bits

Gorgeous packaging, lovely bitter (in the best way) dark chocolate with gentle touch of sweetness, and vividly bright bits of freeze dried raspberry…

Those bits of raspberry keep us hovering on the fence. The crunch of the raspberry […]

Lake Champlain Chocolates — Five Star Bar

Lake Champlain Chocolates Five Star Bar

These dense, chunky little bars are quite interesting. The lighter truffle-like center reminds us of creamy milk chocolate dotted with tender sour cherry halves, praline, and crunchy fresh pecan pieces. Then, the cherry and praline rich chunks are dipped in a darker […]

Where Are We?

Green Tea Mochi

Royal Family Green Tea Mochi

So, we’re not really mochi fans… especially the packaged type. The doughy blobs hidden by over-sized packaging rarely live up to the “artistic” renderings on the box. Every box is a gamble. You never know what you’re going to get. […]
