Lunch with Lauren: Cafe Sababa

by Lauren Townsend for The Aha! Connection

Let’s talk about Cafe Sababa. I’m not sure how I didn’t know about this little gem until my friend, Felicia, mentioned it. I’ve walked past it numerous times on the way to Simply Thai, another one of my Dunwoody favorites. Cafe Sababa offers Mediterranean and middle eastern dishes made fresh and super delicious.… Read More » “Lunch with Lauren: Cafe Sababa”

Lunch with Lauren: J’s Mini Hot Pot Deluxe

By Lauren Townsend for The Aha! Connection

My new favorite place to lunch. I’m not sure why I haven’t tried this place sooner; probably because the idea of my child with selective hearing cooking her own food in a pot of boiling broth makes my eye twitch. Spoiler alert…it went really well. Hot pot is a Chinese method of cooking a variety of foods in broth at the table.… Read More » “Lunch with Lauren: J’s Mini Hot Pot Deluxe”

Lunch with Lauren: Poke City and Momonoki

by Lauren Townsend for The Aha! Connection

Poke city is open Publix Dunwoody Hall shopping center. If you aren’t familiar with poke, it is traditionally, a Hawaiian raw fish salad. If you love sushi, you will love poke. Choose a base (white or brown rice or salad greens), multiple proteins, veggies, dressing and toppings. I really liked Poke City because they also offered cooked protein options like chicken and shrimp for those who can’t bring themselves to do raw.… Read More » “Lunch with Lauren: Poke City and Momonoki”

Lunch with Lauren: King BBQ and Cousins Maine Lobster

by Lauren Townsend for The Aha! Connection

I have strong opinions about BBQ. I never realized it until I left for Clemson and South Carolinians would emphatically insist that their mustard based BBQ was the best in the country. Perhaps if their insistence wasn’t so unfettered that it was the BEST in the WHOLE country or maybe if I hadn’t been so young and homesick, but alas, my opinions on BBQ began to shape with equal conviction.… Read More » “Lunch with Lauren: King BBQ and Cousins Maine Lobster”

Buttermilk Kitchen’s “Secret” Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner

By Audra Anders for The Aha! Connection

You’ve quite possibly eaten breakfast at Buttermilk Kitchen in Buckhead.   If not, you need to go…and soon….but get there early and expect to wait a little while for a table.  It is worth the wait…just ask my always hungry teenage boys.

Buttermilk’s Chef, Suzanne Vizethann, is  a local girl who actually graduated from Riverwood High School. … Read More » “Buttermilk Kitchen’s “Secret” Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner”

Lunch with Lauren: Press Blend Squeeze

by Lauren Townsend for The Aha! Connection

Well, Dunwoody, it appears we skipped Spring and fast forwarded to Summer. The warmer weather usually serves as a reminder that I should get moving since I am about as active as a mushroom, but luckily, I have Press, Blend, Squeeze to help get me back on track. Matt and Nicole, owners of Press, Blend, Squeeze “want to make healthy food and beverage choices easily accessible for everyone, while helping to educate consumers on specific ingredient benefits.” They developed the idea after Matt’s father was diagnosed with cancer and was able to add over 5 years to his original 5 month life expectancy by changing his diet. … Read More » “Lunch with Lauren: Press Blend Squeeze”
