$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!

Wisconsin Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwich at One Eared Stag Inman Park, Atlanta

photo 2 (1)

One Eared Stag is the most cranking little restaurant bar in Inman Park; known for Fried Chicken on Monday night which I continue to unintentionally miss. Also, FYI: The fried chicken on Monday is about the only consistent dish on the menu as they change their menu just about every night.

The fries which are served with a spicy mayo made from scratch (not shown) are a must try. Also, if you so happen to be in the area during lunch try the Wisconsin cheddar grilled cheese with beer mustard.

If you are a spicy food connoisseur or up for the challenge, try the Hot Chicken, the flavors were great but far too spicy for me. If you dare have the “Corpse Reviver” if you are into craft cocktails (usually made with bitters and or other unusual ingredients).

Mexican Corn at Chick-A-Biddy Atlantic Station, Atlanta

photo 5-2

The Mexican corn at Chick-A-Biddy is not your typical creamed corn. Sautéed with onions, red peppers and scallions with the perfect combination of seasonings. Pairs well with their Grilled Piri Piri Chicken.

To add, everything on the menu at this restaurant is priced $12.00 and under (with the exception of the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake $16.00) including the 1/4 chicken meal with two sides. I would recommend the Wood Grilled Piri Piri Chicken. The fried chicken on the other hand is nothing to jump up and down over.

The menu mostly consists of chicken, it also has veggie dishes such as a black bean burger, veggie chilli and quinoa and several salads .

The bartender (bald guy can’t remember his name) is a great mixologist. Please try the frozen mint julep or frozen watermelon margarita they’re both equally great.
