THIS WEEK'S POP-UP GUIDE
Join @punkfoodieatl's non-profit alter ego @flavorforward.atl for an exciting shrimp boil fundraiser to ease food insecurity this Saturday at @ptreefarmersmkt in Buckhead. 250 pounds of shrimp was rescued by our team and by @proofthepudding’s Chef Helen Saile (@hgsaile) and everyone’s taste buds are going to reap the benefits of their generosity.
Continuing our efforts to source quality, local ingredients to deliver elevated meals, we’ve teamed up with local farmers for fresh produce to accompany @thespottedtrotter’s andouille sausage to prepare a tasty dish that will feed your bellies and your hearts. With one of our favorite house pop up chefs @chefamandahardee at the helm, we know these ingredients will come together in a delicious fashion. To bring the meal to a sweet conclusion we are excited to partner with @cgkeylimepies.
This weekend immerse yourself in everything Japan has to offer. What you see at @JapanFest_Atlanta is what you can experience firsthand, literally. This year’s theme, "Experience Japan," is all about immersing yourself in Japanese traditions, natural beauty, and pop culture.
Of course, we are all about the food, and there will be lots of that to be had. Check out Umaido ramen, Sushiyoko, Snackboxe Bistro, Beard Papa’s, Waraku, Wagaya, OK Yaki, and many, many more. Full vendor list here. Purchase tickets in advance from the website.
A very special event is in store for foodies on Monday 9/18 when @jackalopeatl and @sugarplusair combine forces for a collaborative dinner with one of the most exciting menus we’ve seen in a while. The duo is teaming up to “play their greatest hits.” Reservations are recommended and can be made here. A small amount of walk-up seating will be available day of, but, it wouldn’t be wise to leave something this enjoyable up to chance.
Featuring a super forward-thinking menu, we can’t wait to try the Everything Bagel Gyozas, Shishito Pesto Noodles, Hat Yai Fried Chicken Biscuit and Gravy, and the highly anticipated Reuben Okonomyaki. Come hungry 5pm-9pm.
