Everyday Organic, Greenville SC (CLOSED)

This is Marie, contributing an article about Everyday Organic, a restaurant in Greenville that is, sadly, much too far away. I really enjoyed my meal there and would have very much liked to try more of their offerings. Continue reading “Everyday Organic, Greenville SC (CLOSED)”


Sweet Hut Bakery & Cafe, Doraville GA

Readers may recall that last week we included a chapter about our fun trip to BoBo Garden. Before we arrived, I had half a mind to pop across the street for dessert after we finished, because I’d been wanting to go to Sweet Hut with Marie since I first read about it. Her sweet tooth is, after all, sweeter than mine. This is a really neat little place that opened at the beginning of 2012 in the same strip mall as Quõc Húóng and the just-closed Fil-Am Star, a place that I really wanted to try. We didn’t go then, because we left BoBo Garden completely stuffed, and I resolved to go the next time we were in the area. Continue reading “Sweet Hut Bakery & Cafe, Doraville GA”

And so we went back to the Food Truck Park…

I did not specifically intend to revisit the Atlanta Food Truck Park on Howell Mill, but I’m very glad that we did, because we had a really great time and ate very well.

Marie had suggested fried chicken for supper a couple of Saturdays ago, and I was keen for her to try Curly’s Fried Chicken, which is located a little further down the opposite direction on Howell Mill, and which I had really enjoyed when I visited in the summer. In fact, the more I thought about it, the more keen I was for a visit. But the teenage girlchild started grumbling. Suddenly, she didn’t like chicken, and never had. You might be aware that teenagers can be just a little bit mercurial. Continue reading “And so we went back to the Food Truck Park…”
