WHAT THEY SAY

My Fox Atlanta
Taco Thursday: Teela Taqueria

What do you get when you take a brother and sister of Greek origin, who grew up in Zimbabwe, and then relocated to Atlanta, or more specifically, Sandy Springs??? Well a Mexican restaurant of course.  Teela Taqueria is a contemporary but casual Mexican restaurant located in the City Walk Shopping Center, just off Roswell Rd. in Sandy Springs. It is owned by the sister and brother team of Artemis “Arte” Antoniades and Nikitas “Nik” Panagopoulos. Read the rest…

Can you believe after I ate all that food (4 tacos + chips), I had the audacity to even look at the dessert menu? Yep. I really wanted to try the Tres Leches Cake and Jonathan really wanted to try the Flan. So, we ordered one of each to share. The cake was moist and sweet but not too sweet. Read the rest…

Cheese enchiladas are bright, breezy and lip smacking, with fresh salsa verde brimming with big tomatillo flavor. Read the rest…


Happily Eating

I got my mussels cooked Traditional White. The mussels were prepared perfectly and was piping hot when it arrived to the table. I love that they give you three pieces of bread as well. The best part about eating mussels is dipping your bread in the sauce after. I hate when I have to ask the restaurant for extra bread. The bread was also seasoned and soft.  Read the rest…


My Vicarious Life

For breakfast this morning, I had blackened shrimp, cheese grits, hush puppies and sweet potato tots. Not the most conventional first meal of the day, but certainly a delicious one. I feel as if I should send a thank you note to the Tin Can Fish House & Oyster Bar for what is arguably the best leftovers I’ve had in ages.  Read the rest…
