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

photo

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.

Brunch at Campagnolo Midtown, Atlanta

I love Brunch! It’s the most exciting part of Sunday it’s the perfect reason for Bloody Marys and Mimosa; so I while Scout Mob Surfing I stumbled upon Campagnolo and its 50% off deal, as most people would assume that if a restaurant has a “coupon” it must not be that great! Well you would be incorrect my friend! This is one of the best Brunch destinations in Atlanta!

Catch them while they are still on Scoutmob and have a Mimosa for me!

My Recommendations:
Tomato Bisque
Campagnolo Breakfast
Eggs Benedict
$5.00 Bloody Mary with $3.00 refills

Campagnolo Restaurant + Bar
980 Piedmont Ave Ne
Atlanta, GA 30309

$8.95 House Dish for Two at Tin Drum AsiaCafe Various Locations, Atlanta

photo 5

While attending Georgia State University this past year I frequented Tin Drum Asia Cafe. Typically I would have the egg drop soup (which was too salty for my taste) and a veggie spring roll (which i would recommend).

Yet, my last time there, in fact it was the day I turned in my last paper at GSU. I tried the Mango Stir Fry on top of a bed of fried rice ($8.95). Tin Drum has several House Dishes which are bowls of various chicken stir fry’s over a bed of a choice of white, brown or fried rice.

The mango stir fry consisted of:

Sweet-chili sauce, fresh mango, basil, onions, bell peppers, jalapenos, crispy chicken, steamed white rice

It was pretty good, what I would expect from a asian fast food joint. Nothing to sing hallelujah over but enough for a return visit. But I digress, this bowl is far too much for one person unless you plan on taking some home for later; instead bring a friend or lover and share, this is a great deal for two people at $8.95!
