kristineyoungin [ #ATLANTA ] :: one of the best meals of our trip so far happened at @kinganddukeatl! The quality and presentation of the food was impressive and the service made our experience even more memorable. Brian, our server, was so helpful and passionate about the food which in turn made me love my experience that much more. Pictured is the Avocado #Lobster Toast I ordered with shaved vegetables, lemon, and #GranaPadano. 7d

kristineyoungin [ #ATLANTA ] :: A close-up of the #KoreanFriedChicken from @Gaja_Eav! #KoreanFood tugs on my heartstrings because most dishes encompass a perfect balance of sweet and spicy. This dish is no exception except the spiciness is soothed by a creamy tofu "ranch". The platter comes with banchan (including housemade #VeganKimchi) and rice. After we finished the chicken I mixed the rice and banchan in the leftover sauce because...why not. 1w

kristineyoungin [ #ATLANTA ] :: I was looking forward to @gaja_eav so much and it met every expectation. Nostalgic of the traditional #korean bars and restaurants I used to go to in NY but with intricate detail behind interior design and presentation. Definitely a solid representation of South Korea's influence on growing trends in the food industry! If I lived in the 404 I would probably be here everyday...or try to work here. 🏼 1w

kristineyoungin [ #ATLANTA ] :: The first night in ATL we stopped by Superrica and I ate my heart out which meant no room for #breakfast. It doesn't mean I couldn't snap a photo of @marcelameilleur's #AvocadoToast at @RevelatorAtlWest! Topped with #BlackLavaSalt and radishes. 1w

kristineyoungin [ #NASHVILLE ] :: Last place I'll post for Nashville and it's one of my favorite spots! Some of my favorite people and I stopped by @LucaNashville for a late night drink on a Sunday and it felt like the bar was to ourselves. Thanks to @laurenlangstonstewart for being the best hostess during our stay and to all the lovely friends who have welcomed @marcelameilleur and I with open arms. 🏼 1w

kristineyoungin [ #NASHVILLE ] :: When you're friends are @marcelameilleur and @laurenlangstonstewart you're bound to be surrounded by coffee and cats. Unfortunately my body can't endure prolonged exposure to either of those wonderful things so I look to tea and dogs! Pictured is the #KashmiriChai (also known as #PinkChai) at @CremaCrema. 1w

kristineyoungin [ #NASHVILLE ] :: Welp. There it is. In all it's glory. It isn't a trip to Nashville if I don't get #NashvilleHotChicken. There were a lot of contenders but I figured if I could only have it once during this trip it might as well be at @HattieBs! I tried both the medium and hot but wish I went hotter...my stomach doesn't. #haveitwithhoney 2w

kristineyoungin [ #NASHVILLE ] :: Beet Happenings #Cocktail at @OldGloryNashville! #Fidencio #Mezcal, #beet, Greek yogurt, dill, lime, and agave make up this delicious concoction. 2w

kristineyoungin [ #NASHVILLE ] :: I had the chance to visit a couple of really great bars while in town but @OldGloryNashville was definitely one of my favorites! The interior reminded me of a fancy boiler room turned Brooklyn speakeasy bar...if that makes any sense at all. It's not a speakeasy, but it's not easy to find! <--- that was unintentional but I just realized it sounds pretty witty. #kbye 2w

kristineyoungin [ #NASHVILLE ] :: #GarganelliVerde with a heritage #PorkRagout and topped with #Sarvecchio cheese. I heard so much about @RolfAndDaughters' squid ink pasta but it wasn't on the menu and decided to get this instead. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the dish itself was filling and worth every bite! 2w

kristineyoungin [ #NASHVILLE ] :: You guys. I have eaten so much here in Nashville and I'm probably going to post all of it at once when I get back to Orlando. But this couldn't wait. My visit to @RolfAndDaughters was pure bliss One of the apps I got was the #DryAged #BeefTartare with turnip and watermelon radish. It was served with red romaine spritzed with an acidic dressing and used as a wrap. YAHS 2w

kristineyoungin [ #NASHVILLE ] :: Stood in line for 30 minutes for #tacos at @MasTacos in #Nashville and it was worth every second. I got the Spicy Carne Molida taco, #PulledPork taco, and the Pineapple Cilantro Aqua Fresca. The ground pork taco was my fav! Everything totaled up to $8 which made me happy but they only take cash or checks so be prepared! 2w
