Dynamic Veggies

Tofu Wrap with Tomato Salad

Watermelon Soup

Fig, chevre and spinach salad

Veggie Plate - Chef's Special

While my Dad was visiting we had a very healthy dinner at Dynamic Dish. Although I've heard raves about it from fellow bloggers, we really didn't think it was that special. The tofu wrap was my favorite, very flavorful and fresh. The watermelon soup contained too much vodka to be a soup - it tasted more like a drink special! I would like to return to try the specialty pizzas that are reportedly served on Saturday nights.

Memphis Munchies

Calvin and I ventured to Memphis to spend time with his family and explore some of what the city has to offer. We had a fabulous time walking on the waterfront, going to the civil rights museum (in the hotel where Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot) and chatting it up with all of his relatives. Despite the severe heat of summer, we managed to get in some good eating too.

For breakfast we found a crepe restaurant - this place needs to come to Atlanta.

Sushi from A-Tan in Memphis.

Several of Calvin's relatives had never tried sushi before, so we introduced them to the raw stuff. His stepfather really liked it but I'm not sure about the rest of the group! We had a great time anyway, though, and the sushi was quite good.

BBQ Platter from Interstate Barbecue in Memphis - this is the real stuff!

The world famous Jim Neely - the founder of Interstate.

Lunch from Safari Cup in Birmingham, Alabama

On our way home we happened upon a great lunch spot - Safari Cup in downtown Birmingham. The chicken sandwich took me back to Joburg and the salad was very fresh and tasty.

Peasant Sweets

Sticky pecan bread pudding, chocolate mousse and cheesecake

With a friend visiting from out of town, we happened upon Peasant Bistro, the newest outlet from The Peasant Restaurants, located on the west side of Centennial Park. Since we'd already lunched on some falafel, we opted for dessert only. The desserts were all fabulous, but the sticky bread pudding was my personal favorite. The menu here looks neat, so I'll definitely return soon.
