UberEATS : SKRT SKRT

We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.”
— Anais Nin

One day ( a very hungover day) when my sister and I were in Atlanta we finally used UberEATS. I'd been dying to try the service for a while because I think its genius. Uber is literally everywhere and now they're bringing food too. *sobs obnoxiously* 

We downloaded the UberEATS app and shifted through the various restaurant options that they offer. There was A LOT. Fortunately, they have a cool search feature that streamlines the process. You can search by cuisine or meal type (breakfast, lunch, dinner). 

We ordered from Sweet Auburn Barbecue in Atlanta. They're an awesome restaurant that I want to actually go sit in and experience. Nevertheless, they offering catering and also run a food truck. 

Here's what we ordered:

  • Smoked Wings ( Wu Tang + Straight Up)
  • Bucket of Cornbread (Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread) 
  • House Smoked Beef Brisket 
  • Jerk Spiced Collard 
  • Charred Asparagus 
  • Turnpike Cheddar Grits 

The food from Sweet Auburn was delicious. Everything was well seasoned and cooked. My favorite two things were the Wu Tang wings and cheddar grits. The grits were so rich + creamy. 

This whole spread was crazy. I'm still drooling over it:

 

As you can see, we feasted! All thanks to UberEATS. The only reason I bought this much food is because I got 20$ WHOLE DOLLARS OFF. You can too, when you use my UberEATS code: eats-brional1.

The Southern Gentleman: Atlanta, Georgia.

The Scoop:

There's a first time for everything. First time I went to Atlanta, first time I stayed in a super bougie hotel, first time I had collard greens at Chick Fil A. See, lots of firsts. Atlanta was a great trip and I can't wait to go back and dig a little deeper. 

This trip was full of food and liquor. That's pretty much it. But that's what hungover curing brunches are for. 

The Ambience:

Service was superb and all of the waiters were perfect southern gentlemen. They took they time to make us feel really comfortable and at home. We conversed about life and laughed with our waiter, David, like we'd known him forever. It was lovely. As was his face. Anyway, the place is vibes. Very clean and sleek modern look, yet classy. 

The Food: 

The Southern Gentleman in Atlantas premier neighborhood, Buckhead, could cure just about anything. This is the kind of food that makes you say "hmm" during the entire meal. 

It was by far the best brunch that I've ever had in my life. Woah, can't believe I just said that. It's true. My sister and I were going crazy over every dish. Not to mention, our waiter was fine as hell + definitely a southern gentleman. 

I ordered (way too much): 

 Crispy Anadama Toffee Waffles with caramelized bananas, Rum & Vanilla Syrup, Whipped Butter. This waffle had the perfect amount crunch without being overcooked. The caramelized bananas and toffee pieces on top made it sweet like dessert. I ain't mad at it. 

* Pimento Cheese & Dixie Bacon Omelet with soft cooked eggs + home fried potatoes. First, off the home fries were out of this world with flavor. The omelet was super cheesy (so good I forgot I wasn't supposed to be having dairy, oops).

The bacon and sausage that came with it though!

My sister ordered:

The prime rib special with two sunny side up eggs and a horseradish waffle. I know what you're thinking. Horseradish waffle?!? It was so bomb to eat with their succulent prime rib. 

 

Overall, I highly recommend The Southern Gentleman anytime you may be in Atlanta. It's a quick Uber ride over to Buckhead. Actually, I beg you to go and experience this place for yourself.

Battle of the Burgers: Bit Bourbon Steamed Burgers v Honest Burgers

The Scoop:

I've only been in London a few weeks now, but already I've found burger heaven. YES. Having tasted a few burgers in the big smoke already, Bit Burgers and Honest Burgers both hit the spot. But which is the don? The Godfather? Let the battle begin:

 The Ambiance:

Bit

I visited Bit Burgers at the lovely camden market. I'm absolutely in love with the abundance of street food + outdoor 'famers' markets that are here in London. Camden town is definitely becoming a favorite of mine. The streets are lined with souvenir shops that you'd find on the beach boardwalk along with quirky vintage shops. As you make your way through Camden you'll too find street art along the cobble stone streets. 

Eventually the shops end and there's the bridge- aka the gateway to foodie galore. There is where you'll find loads of fresh foods from all different parts of the world. Turkish, Mexican, Dutch, Greek, Ethiopian & so much more. SAMPLES, SAMPLES, SAMPLES. Take them all to help decide what you fancy eating. 

Honest

I've eaten at Honest Burgers twice now @ their Kings Cross location, but they have many locations in London. Kings Cross is a international transportation hub, so there's always a good mix of people at this Honest Burgers. On any given night, the place is packed -- but in a good way. If you visit here during lunch time, it's a bit quieter vibes. Huge glass windows are perfect for people watching + I love the simplistic wooden interior too. 

The Service:

Bit

The lady making our food was the nicest + happiest person I met that day. She had a magical energy that could've made any food taste great. She also didn't mind telling me about the process and how they steam their burgers in the bourbon. Overall, the experience was pleasant and I will be back for more. 

Honest

Both times the experience was pleasant and the staff were attentive. My server recommended the spicy ginger marmalade tea for my sore throat and it worked wonders. Forever indebted to that drink. 

The Food: 

Bit

Definitely one of the best burgers I've come across in London thus far. I want to take a wild guess and say this is because they steam their burgers using bourbon. The burger was so tender and juicy. For 5.50 we got a bourbon burger + added bacon, egg and blue cheese. The brioche bun is what brought it all home for me. It was incredibly soft. 

Honest

Having ordered the Ribman special at Honest both times (ribman= beef, ribmeat--pulled pork--, mature cheddar, pickles, lettuce and holy fu*k sauce) I can say that Honest serves up a good quality cut of meat using 100% ginger pig dry aged beef. 

My friend, Shiya, is my veggie babe. She ordered the fritter, which is cauliflower, tomato, corn, shallots, spices + cucumber yogurt all cooked up into a 'burger'. All burgers are served with rosemary chips (fries), which are equally fresh and delicious. During the weekdays, there's a 15 pound student deal (2 burgers, 2 chips, 2 drinks) totally worth it!
