#ATLBBQFest And the winner is…….. #JimnNicksBBQ !!!!!!!

When I stood in line at the Jim-N-Nick’s BBQ stand at the Atlanta BBQ fest this past weekend, the cynical part of me said: “This long line better be worth the wait!” Once I made my way to the front of the line I resisted the rack of ribs and ordered the Pulled Pork and Grits with Grilled Corn. In this case my second choice prevailed! I am not sure where how what or who made the grits that creamy, how the sauce was so great or how the corn was so flavorful yet simply seasoned! In fact I don’t remember anything else I tried at the fest… :-/

Hush Dinner Club (September 7)

Lentil Sambusa AKA (Samosa) at Meskerm Ethiopian Restaurant, Briarcliff, #Atlanta

Every so often I stumble upon a restaurant that I was not intending to go to because I failed to make a reservation at a neighboring restaurant. I had the Sambusa for my appetizer, which is pretty much the Ethiopian version of a Samosa. I think they made it from scratch being as it took quite sometime for it to be brought to the table. Despite my impatience, they were worth the wait they were crispy hot and the lentils were perfectly seasoned.

“Take Me Out To The Ball Game” Chicago Dog at Wrigley Field, Chicago

Recently I took a trip to Chicago to see the Cubs play the Dodgers (But mostly for Deep Dish Pizza and Garrett’s). Just a tip to the newbies of Wrigley Field: The best Chicago Dogs are from the Stands (shown above) not the concession counters! Trust me I won’t lead you down the wrong path! The flavor in Vienna Beef Dogs are nothing short of amazing!

Also, there is an 85% chance that the tickets purchased at the ticket booth at Wrigley Field are less expensive than online and scalpers! Speaking from personal experience.

Bocado Burger, Herb Fries and Bland Chicken at Bocado West Midtown, Atlanta

The pickles on the burger are made in house by H&F(Holman & Finch), perfect amount of cheese and the fries are addictive and made from scratch! I love their use of spicy mayo opposed to ketchup. They also have a good craft beer list….

On the other hand, the chicken and grits wasn’t their strong point, it was bland and the grits left nothing to desire….

But I digress, if you participate in their wine tastings you receive 20% off your entire meal!
