ATLfoodWent to Atlanta this summer and loved it! Such a green beautiful place. I can not believe I had not gone any sooner. They have amazing spots to eat at by the way. Here are 2 places I went too while I was there for the weekend…

Flip Burger Boutique https://flipburgerboutique.com

I had this amazing burger called Southern burger, it was the special for the night. It had collard greens and fried onions, so delish! I can still taste it. After that massive burger I went for a milk shake. I went on the trip with my sisters so we all picked something different to be able to share.

We had milkshakes for dessert and oh my geesh they were awesome! Pictured are the captain crunch milkshake. Yes, Captain Crunch and the incredible smores milkshake. Both great and very different.

Sunday for Brunch we encountered http://www.highlandbakery.com.

The cutest town and bakery I’d ever seen! All the items on the menu sounded very tempting. This was my sisters breakfast. Unfortunately, I was too much of a fat butt to even bother taking a picture of my delicious and heavenly pumpkin pancakes.

If you’re around the area, go go go to these two spots!

The perks of living in Miami, these sweet and delicious Cuban pastry! One of the most important reasons I love my city is because we are such divorced city. We have people from all over the world that offer so much cultural experiences for everyone. The food in Miami is so amazing and exquisite.

This pastry is such a simple, heavenly, warm, sweet, fluffy but flaky Miami traditional food everyone should try!

Super easy to make and enjoy and your kids will love them too!

Recipe:

1/4 cup of oats (1/2 if no whey protein)

1 egg

1 tsp of baking powder

1 tbsp apple sauce – no sugar (very important so it will not be dry) you can also replace it with almond milk.

1/2 a banana or 1 full banana

1/2 scoop pf whey protein (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a blender and pour on pan or waffle maker.

For topping I added the other half of the banana and Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup, you can find it at some of your local grocery stores or online at Amazon.com or Vitacost.com for way less than many places…. oh yea and I also added maple syrup.

Enjoy!

Bread + Butter

Reviews

So, I love food and I’m always on Yelp reading reviews and truing to find new places. Last night I went to Bread+Butter with my boys for dinner. Super cute place!

I must say the food was good. I had “chicharron” for dinner which is fried pork. It was fairly small but taste great! I had fresh guava juice which was a little watery so it took away from the guava texture and taste. The bread shown here was amazing. Super soft not dry at all and it went wonderfully with the semi sweet butter.

The restaurant is Cuban with a twist. I loved the fact that its the traditional cuban food with some creative thought put to it, but I do think its a bit over priced. Being that Miami is the Cuban capital in the U.S. we get a variety of great Cuban food for more then half off the price this restaurant is charging for theres. But, they have been open since 2012 so maybe people really don’t mind how much they’re paying for a pan con lechon at Bread + Butter.

I went for dinner, but Ive been hearing they have great brunch and lunch menus. So if you’re a foody and don’t mind paying the price I’d say go try it out!
