A {Not Your Avg} Foodie Guide to Atlanta

Atlanta, Georgia

When you ask me about Atlanta, one of the main things I talk about is food. The food was very delicious. Here are a few of my favorite places:

Fried Chicken // JCT Kitchen + Bar

JCT Kitchen + Bar was one of my favorite spots in Atlanta. The drinks are great and the food was more than I could handle but it was so delicious. I ordered the fried chicken. The side it originally came with was collard greens, but I asked if I could switch it for mac + cheese instead. They were able to switch it out for me and it was a great decision {it had bacon!}. The chicken was tender with a crispy outside. I couldn't finish it all because I had 3 {huge} pieces. You also get a piece of bread while your food is being prepared - so don't eat it too fast because it's a huge piece and you don't want to get full before your entree comes out.

Assorted Items // Hop's Chicken

Hop's Chicken was a little place in Ponce City Market. You order your items individually to make a meal. I decided to get chicken tenders, a chicken leg, potato hashbrowns, and mac and cheese with a sweet tea. What I liked about this place is all of the workers were so kind. While we were ordering, we asked the cashier about their collard greens and mac + cheese and she gave us a sample. She also let us sample the lemonade when we asked for refills on our sweet tea. I poured the lemonade into my tea to make an Arnold Palmer. It was a good decision.

Peanut Butter French Toast // Highland Bakery

Dessert Cocktail // King of Pops

King of Pops is a very popular popsicle shop / stand in Atlanta. They have carts in various spots and a location in Ponce City Market. You can order the popsicle on its own or as a dessert cocktail {aka poptails!}. They were out of the poptail I wanted, so I chose the poptail with prosecco and a fruity popsicle. I don't regret my decision.
