Hey there, Foodie Family! I know that a big part of why you follow me and keep up with my blog is to get the inside scoop on all the best eats in town (and in other towns, too). What kind of foodie would I be if I didn't give you the dish on my favorite places to eat and drink? So here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to share my top ten restaurants in my hometown. Are you ready for this?
The Breakfast Boys
I cannot express the love I have for the jerk chicken wings alone. The interior just give off brunch vibes and you have many options for drinks. Trust me you will probably order almost everything on the menu; it's that unique. The staff are very polite, and they know the menu like the back of their hand.

If you like sweet smoothie bowls or refreshing smoothie bowls, this place is for you! Not only does Playa Bowls have a variety of unique flavors, but they also have different bases for their smoothies—so if you're not a big banana fan, you can choose a coconut base instead. The interior of the restaurant also makes it feel like you're in the Bahamas, which is great if you're looking for a getaway without actually having to leave the city.

Another Broken Egg
It's not often that I'm blown away by a new breakfast spot, but Another Broken Egg did just that. I tried their Mardi Gras Omelete, and it was so full of flavor and toppings that I ate the whole thing in one sitting—no small feat. It was so good, I'm going to have to go back to try the rest of their menu, because if this omelete is any indicator of what else they have to offer, there's no way this place can do wrong.
4745 Ashford Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta, GA 30338
Have you ever wanted to find a place that feels like home, but doesn't actually look like your house? I found such a place in J Presso. The interior alone will draw you to this place, but the owner is another reason to go—she's there all the time and is totally willing to help you. The drinks are yummy. I haven't tried everything on the menu, but I can personally recommend the Ginger tea latte, which is honestly the best latte I've ever had in my life. It's so creamy and sweet—you HAVE to try it.
407 N Central Ave Ste B, Hapeville, GA 30354
I have to say, I was a bit skeptical about trying this place out. I know a thing or two about birria tacos. But let me tell you: these are the best I've ever had.The tacos are out of this world. When they put them on your plate it's like a mirage of cheese and savory meat with just the right amount of spice. The consome is on point and seasoned so well—you can definitely taste the care that goes into making it. The staff is super friendly and helpful, even if you're new to birria tacos or a novice like me. This place is a must-try!
4980 Old Dixie Hwy, Forest Park, GA 30297
Everythang Nola Cafe
I just wanted to say what a great find this place is! Before I came here, I didn't know anything about snowballs, but after I tried their strawberry cheesecake snowball, I can never go back to snow cones. Their tuna handwich is also to die for—I can't believe they can make something like that out of tuna!
1699 Sylvan Rd SW, Atlanta, GA 30310
Mixd Up Burgers
I'm of course a foodie, but I've never been one to be impressed with just any run-of-the mill burger restaurant. However, when I tried Mixd Up Burgers for the first time, that was it for me. They had me hooked. Honestly, the only reason I even tried this place out was because it was close to where I live and my friends recommended it. But now I'm glad they did. The burgers are amazing here; they're all different so you don't have to worry about getting bored eating the same burger over and over again.
2371 Hosea L Williams Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30317
Chicken is chicken, right? Well, that's what I thought until I went to Bonchon. That's when I learned that Korean fried chicken is a whole other ballgame. The pieces are cut into the perfect bite-sized pieces, and the skin has an incredible crunch and a flavor that's out of this world. I usually recommend going at lunch because dinner can be expensive if you're trying it for the first time. And if you have any doubts about what to get: just get half and half!
