Weekends in the A
There’s nothing I love more than exploring my own city. Even after being in Atlanta for the past 17 years I’m still so surprised on what this city really has to offer.
We started off our day by visiting Krog Street Market. If you haven’t been there I high advise you go. Krog Street has a variety of different dining and retail shops with a cafeteria style hall making it a great place to meet with friends and just socialize; even with strangers.
some of the dining include:
Fred’s Meat & Bread
Hop City Beer and Wine
Our choice of dining for that was Superica.
I started off my meal with a delicious glass of Superica’s New Holland Sun Dog Amber; for its heavy nature I must say I was really surprised how good it actually was (I’m not a fan of anything really dark).
In addition to their awesome drinks, Superica made their way to my heart through their salsa selection. If it’s anyhting I like about Mexican food is definitely chips and salsa. Superica offers two complimentary salsa with each meal and man was it something different than what I am use to; definitely far from traditional. The first salsa choice was a avacado salsa verde ( pictured below); it was the perfect mix of salsas texture and the amazing taste of guacamole! The second salsa was more of a smoky, spicy salsa which was filled with awesome spices and full of flavor.
Now on to the main course! For dinner I had Nachos but as you can see it was much more than I expected: three bean and cheese nachos with jalepenjos, guacamole, sour cream and pico. During the week (Mon-Fri) Superica has awesome lunch specials where you can choose two plates served with rice and 2x frijoles all for $10.99. Such an awesome deal, I know I couldn’t finish it all.
Every good meal needs good company! So after our bellies were filled we decided to explore the city some more and took a 2 mile stroll down the Atlanta BeltLine.
“The Atlanta Beltline is a sustainable redevelopment project that will provide a network of public parks, multi-use trails and transit along a historic 22 mile railroad corridor circling downtown and connecting many neighborhoods directly to each other”.
The coolest part about the BeltLine is all the amazing artwork, unique strip of restaurant along the trail and also just the diversity of the people enjoying one of Atlanta’s hidden treasures.
Just when I thought I couldn’t eat anymore, I made sure to leave just enough room for dessert. We fell upon this adorable neighborhood ice cream shop on our way back from the BeltLine it was nothing short of perfect! Founded in Atlanta in 1999, by Jake Rothschild, “he felt that Atlanta needed good home made ice cream and a really cool place to enjoy it. No fluorescent lights, no hard chrome and plastic chairs, no pre-programmed music backing pre-programmed speeches from polyester-uniformed singing robots.”
This hometown ice cream shop should definitely added to the list of places to visit if you’re ever in the area!
I will most definitely be going back.
