An Evening At So Ba

This passed weekend I decided to try something different for my tastebuds. Now if any who knows me well may have a good idea of the type of foods that I like to eat. I like to call myself a food connoisseur simply because I never like to eat the same things all the time and I’ll try anything once. 

I wanted to go somewhere different so I decided to surprise my boyfriend and take him to a Vietnamese restaurant. I stumbled upon a place called So Ba here in East Atlanta Village. It looks like a small home on the outside but has a very nice intimate setting once you step inside. The atmosphere was intimate, the people who greeted us as we walked in were very polite also. 

For our appetizer we order the shrimp spring rolls that are wrapped in rice paper and for our entree’, we both ordered medium bowls of Pho’ which consisted of shrimp and chicken. Now I’m no stranger to Vietnamese culture but my boyfriend was and of course I was more worried about his cultural experience more than anything. 

Turns out we both enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere. It’s the perfect intimate setting if you want to take someone on a nice and quiet date. For all my food lovers out there, may sure this restaurant is on your good bucket list!!

Sweet Times at Sweet Potato Cafe

After a long Saturday morning of apartment hunting I decided to stop by Sweet Potato Cafe located in Stone Mountain, Ga. Now I’ve patronized this business before and on my first visit I ordered a turkey and egg sweet potato biscuit! I loved every crumb! It was fresh! Lightly flaked with the perfect amount of butter! I enjoyed my breakfast biscuit so much that I had to meet the chef who is also the owner of the restaurant.

To be more clear about the location for anyone who isn’t familiar can make their way to Stone Mountain Village and just watch for a bunch of cars lined up behind one another or patrons looking for parking spots. It looks very small, fun and quaint on the outside but once you walk inside its quite the experience! 

I admired the decorum, the greetings as soon as you cross the threshold, and my favorite part…the drinks, appetizer and last but not least….the MAIN COURSE. For anyone who truly knows me is fully aware of my love for fried greens tomatoes. Everyone makes their green tomatoes different but this appetizer had an interesting twist!! 

I was just looking for to regular fried green tomatoes but instead it was thrown for a loop. The fries green tomatoes had a smoked sweet potato taste, followed by red onions & black eyed peas and corn as the topping. As I was trying to decide what I wanted for a main course I was surprised by an old friend….Ms Vita. A little Sicilian lady I met years ago in high school where we both worked at a mom & pop restaurant at the Northlake Mall. She was so sweet, witty and funny. And can y’all believe that she still looks the same?! And how about she remembers me!! 

Amazing after all these years right??!! She helped me pick out the perfect roasted turkey panini with lettuce, tomatoes with the most delicious homemade spread. I enjoyed her service and the great food!! 

This local mom and pop restaurant is a black owned business and I encourage my brothers & sisters to give it a try! Y’all won’t be sorry! 

Sweet Potato Cafe located at:

5377 Manor Dr, Stone Mountain, GA 30083

Happy food hunting! Thanks for reading!!

Kendrick Lamar-Reebok Collaboration Inspires Change


It’s no secret that King Kendrick has created the best Reebok collaborations compared to multiple collaborations in the past, which was no threat to Lamar. Kendrick Lamar and Reebok recently collaborated on the Reebok Ventilators which was inspired by the gang violence in his hometown of Compton, California. The Reebok Ventilators were made as an off white suede base that alternates blue and red accents on each sneaker.

Now we all know that the gang references are obvious but the word “Neutral” is located on each tongue of the sneaker. The tongue tag is a reminder of the platform Kendrick has been pushing throughout his entire career. Nothing makes it complete with the TDE branding on the tongue and will come packaged with both flat and rope laces. The Ventilators are  scheduled to release this month on July 18th at the price of $140 in the United States.

Lil Wayne signed a deal with Jay Z?


It was an interesting day for hip hop when Lil Wayne took the stage at the KMEL Summer Jam this past Saturday. The crowd began to cheer as the rumors started to fly as Weezy announced that he signed a deal with none other than Jay Z. Could this mean that Weezy is now apart of the Roc Nation family? NEGATIVE!! Lil Wayne’s manager set the record straight that it was more like his new involvement with Tidal as a co-owner for this month, followed by him dropping a new track called “Glory.” Of course the fans and blogs would take this story and run with it after he spoke about the new deal. What Lil Wayne actually referred to was his new partnership with Jay Z and his new deal as an artist owner on Tidal.

Now his may have been disappointed for it now being the collaboration they expected, but signing any deal with Jay Z can only mean a big success!! Knowing that Lil Wayne and Jay Z are two of the biggest hip hop artists with several awarded Grammys with #1 radio hits between them, Jay Z has expressed interest in him years ago before signing to Cash Money. Now thats tea for sure!! A while back Jay Z stopped by Power 105.1 when he mentioned in a Breakfast Club interview that he called him out of respect and that it was only right to bring him in on the deal.

But hold up, wait a minute!! Let’s not forget that Lil Wayne is till indeed signed to Cash Money which has always been his home away from home since his first recording back in 1993. Since the news of Wayne’s departure from Cash Money, he’s not holding back on his opinions about Cash Money and Birman.
