Flip Burger Boutique

Atlanta is home to several unique burger restaurants. Some of them have gotten national recognition and made some lists of top burger restaurants in the country. One such restaurant is run by Richard Blais, a man some may know from Bravo’s “Top Chef” series and Food Network’s “Iron Chef America.” He is currently the creative director of Flip Burger Boutique in Atlanta, GA, and has created some unique burgers that have made the restaurant a very popular place.

Currently rated #72 out of Atlanta’s 3,387 restaurants on TripAdvisor, the location on Howell Mill Road is one of two locations. It gets mostly rave reviews for the unique ingredients and combinations of ingredients that make up the burgers, sides, and milkshakes.

Grazing Here

You wouldn’t know it from my reviews, but my wife and I practice a healthier eating lifestyle, especially at home. One of our stronger beliefs is eating healthy and humanly raised meets, like grass-fed beef when possible. It’s pretty rare to find, especially when dining out, but we often frequented Yeah Burger in Atlanta because of their dedication to providing grass-fed burgers, and other great food options. They pride themselves on serving local, and mostly organic food choices. Pair their passion with some great-tasting beef, and they became one of our favorite stops in the city. That was until we discovered a more local burger establishment called Grazing Here.

Grazing Here started as a food truck that frequented the Peachtree City Farmer’s Market, serving their fresh, grass-fed beef burgers. Even though we went a few times to the market, we were always there too early in the morning to eat a burger. Once we found out that they had opened up a permanent store front in Peachtree City, we knew we had to try it. Now that we have made a move that puts us very close to their restaurant, we enjoy our short drive to great grass-fed beef burgers.

Trip Report: Savannah, GA (June, 2013) Day 2: 7:00 p.m. B & D Burgers

While walking around Savannah, my wife was getting hungry (go figure, it wasn’t me this time) and we used the TripAdvisor app to find the closest restaurants to our location. We came up with #78 rated (they also have a #145 rated location on another street in Savannah) B & D Burgers. I didn’t think much of it when I came upon the building. It looked like any normal restaurant/bar. Continue reading Trip Report: Savannah, GA (June, 2013) Day 2: 7:00 p.m. B & D Burgers

Trip Report: Disney World (April 2013, Day 1)

The Beginning:

DFB Cupcake

I have to begin by saying that this idea was inspired by a different website. I was introduced to Disney Food Blog run by AJ Wolfe in early 2013. As a “foodie,” or in medical terms, a food addict, I love to eat. Disney Food Blog (DFB) therefore had me mesmerized by the amazing eats available at Disney parks. Since I had an upcoming trip to Disney planned at the time for the Flower & Garden Festival, which this year included food kiosks, I decided to go all out and try every item from DFB that I felt was a “must try” item. The choices included everything she blogged about this year plus anything I found through the links within those blogs. In other words, my possible choices probably covered most everything mentioned in that website.

By the start of the trip my list of things I was wanting to try had grown to over 90 individual items. Most of them are small snacks such as the marble cupcake and Butterfinger cupcake shown in this photo, which I found here on DFB’s site. I had four days on the trip, with three in the parks and one outside the parks where I could still eat at Downtown Disney and the resorts. It was starting to look like this would be an ongoing venture attempting to try everything I wanted to eat at Disney.
