Fall is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate the end of bikini season than yet another post about food! And not just any food. We’re talking about the most decadent and outrageous culinary creations in the city that are as much as a treat for the eyes as they are the stomach. This is what Instagram dreams are made of, people!
Sushi burrito from Boru Boru
Sushi is great. Burritos are great. And whoever thought to combine them is a god among men. Few things in life can compare to a giant sushi roll that is fully customizable to include all your favorite accoutrements. I went with spicy tuna, shrimp tempura, avocado, cream cheese, and spicy mayo, which is, in my not so humble opinion, the makings of a perfect sushi roll.
Wake and Bake Pizza from Hob Nob
When it comes to must-try Atlanta brunches, Hob Nob is up there. The atmosphere is awesome (see: patio seating, live band, drunk people singing and dancing), they have multiple boxes of Cards Against Humanity, and their take on breakfast is both tasty and innovative. Enter the Wake and Bake pizza: a mouth-watering combo of cheese, veggies, sausage, bacon, and topped with fried eggs. It can be quite the feat for a restaurant to offer both bottomless mimosas and above average food, but Hob Nob does it all. Pro tip: if you’re planning on visiting the Midtown location, make reservations in advance.
The Unicorn Milkshake (or anything else off the menu) from Cheesecaked
I’m convinced Cheesecaked is the closest to heaven you will get while still remaining on this planet. Their milkshakes are not even milkshakes; they are literal works of art. And it doesn’t stop there. Cheesecaked has everything from rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches to color-changing lemonade to giant ice cream cookie sandwiches. Oh, and a whole lot of cheesecake. If you’ve had a bad day and you’re looking to eat your feelings, look no further. Bonus points: their owner Shawn is super sweet. You go, Shawn!
Pineapple Fried Rice from Poor Calvin’s
From the outside, Poor Calvin’s is an unassuming little restaurant in a very okay part of Midtown. Inside, however, is a foodie’s paradise. Calvin has carefully curated an incredible menu and this pineapple fried rice is no exception. Sure, it looks pretty, but the taste and texture is truly remarkable. I went for brunch and I’m so glad I went outside my comfort zone (aka pancakes) and ordered this. If I was ever buried inside a food and I had to eat my way out, this would be the one.
