Too much thali

Kevin, Simon and I stopped in to Chat Patti for a late lunch and we got strong armed into ordering the thali. Hey, it was $8.99. How could we not? We each got a plate of what I call Indian nachos:

Fried bits covered with various condiments. Mmm. And, the thali…needless to say I took home leftovers.

The cabbage thing, third from the left, kind of tasted like froot loops. In a good way. Nothing was super spicy this time, but that’s not always the case. Vegans, just ask for no dairy and they’ll set you up. I think those ring things have honey in them though, so keep that in mind.

Tipsy Bike Ride to Occupy Atlanta

Friday evening I made myself a double Manhattan after a long stupid week and enjoyed it while watching Game of Thrones. Afterwards I decided to go for a night-time bike ride. A slightly tips bike ride to the Occupy Atlanta encampment downtown and back. That seemed to be about the right amount of riding to do. The encampment was pretty quiet. That might’ve been the night they were marching over to the Peachtree Pine shelter.

Along the way I took a few pictures.

 

A couple of months ago, I saw them filming The Walking Dead at this building. So look for it this season.

Vegan Pie in the Sky book signing with Isa Chandra Moskowitz!

Vegan cookbook author Isa Chandra Moskowitz will be in Atlanta Sunday, October 30th signing Vegan Pie in the Sky (and apparently your whole collection of her books if you haul ’em up there.) Oh, and it’ll be at Cosmo’s Vegan Shoppe, our own vegan owned, completely vegan shop. You knew we had one here, right? It’s 2-3pm and I heard some kind of rumor about pie sampling. Here’s the Facebook page for the event if you want to say you’re going, pass it around, etc. Also, PIE.

Loss Sqid

Two things I enjoy mashed into one: R. Land and Squidbillies. I’ve seen two around town. Not sure if there are more. This is on the side of the Graveyard in East Atlanta. The other I’ve seen is in Little Five Points on the side of OMG Taco.

 

Woodfire Grill

It would be lovely if every restaurant was as ready to serve vegans as Woodfire Grill. And not something half-assed either. This was a full 5 course tasting menu every bit as complex and interesting as the meaty one looked to be. If you need a fancy special occasion option in Atlanta, give it a try. It’s expensive, but worth it. Be sure to call first and ask to make sure they can do a vegan menu for you.

Amuse: pickled cherry, avocado, oil cured olive

First course: local cucumber and athena melon, avocado, crispy bread, aged sherry, olive oil

Second course: local tomato salad, fennel, oil cured olive, marcona almonds, micro basil, olive oil

Taste: white gazpacho with golden raisin puree, espelette, and lemon oil

Third course: roasted mushroom and dried fig risotto, fresh fig compote

Fourth course: roasted spaghetti squash, toasted pecans, local peaches, smoked emulsion, green beans

Dessert: rich chocolate pudding and a blueberry/cherry sorbet (the dessert was different than what they had on the nice sheet they gave us with the menu, so the description isn’t as accurate or nice)

Oh, and if you’re like me, clean your car so the valet doesn’t feel the need to wear a hazard suit to park your car. 🙂
