Lee’s Bakery Restaurant Review

I read about Lee’s Bakery on Buford Highway via Yelp, and because the majority of the reviews were great, I decided to give them a try.

Man, let me just say “they ain’t nevah lied.” The reviews were right on! Best Banh mi ever!

If  Lee’s Bakery wasn’t so far away from my house I would be there now happily munching on a grilled pork bánh mì, instead of telling you about them.

The night after I ate my first Lee’s Bakery bánh mì all I could think was *Homer Simpson voice*, “Yummm Banh miiiiiii!”

So what is a bánh mì? Basically it’s a Vietnamese Po’Boy, or as I would like to now call it, “The crack of all sandwiches.”

A bánh mì is a baguette filled with meat or soy fillings, fresh cucumber slices, cilantro, and pickled carrots.

Of all the bánh mì places on Buford Highway, Lee’s Bakery is the best. My personal favorite is the grilled pork bánh mì.

Oh and did I mention they only charge $2.50 for one to go, and $3 for one ordered in? Yeah, let me not forget that.

You can definitely get your grub on at Lee’s Bakery for cheap.

On top of bánh mì, Lee’s Bakery also serves a mean bowl of pho and boba tea (or bubble tea). If you go be sure to try the mango boba tea.

Between a bánh mì, bowl of pho, and a boba tea you might need to be waddled out the door. They will fill you up and leave you satisfied.

As far as the service, it’s excellent.

The staff is very courteous and, as a person with self-diagnosed OCD, I appreciate that the staff always double bag my orders to make sure there will be no “accidents” in the car from transport.

If you live in or around the Atlanta metro area and haven’t tried this place, please drop what you are doing and go now. Your stomach and your mouth will thank me later.

Unfortunately Lee’s Bakery doesn’t have a website, but you can Google them and they are located at:

4005 Buford Hwy NE
Atlanta, GA 30345
(404) 728-1008

Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays

Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays

I have to give it to Atlanta, this city may be slow sometimes catching on with certain things, but once they do they take off! The world of food trucks, and Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays, is no exception.

Currently the city of Smyrna is hosting Food Truck Tuesdays every Tuesday from 6-9 pm in Taylor-Brawner Park.

Before you start with the, “I don’t go outside of the perimeter” speech, I just want to remind you Smyrna is inside the perimeter.

See, I got you ITP folks too!

The food trucks will rotate weekly at Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays, which means even if you attend every week you won’t get bored with the same ole dishes.

So far the following food trucks have been involved: Ibiza Bites, King of Pops, Yumbii, Yum Yum Cupcake, and The Blaxican.

In addition to great food, you can be serenaded by live music while you’re drooling over the great options and filling your belly up at Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays.

The event is very family friendly, would make an inexpensive date night, and you can even take a furry friend with you (as long as they are leashed of course).

For more information on Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays, pictures of past events, and to stay updated on the weekly menu, visit the Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays Facebook page.

Fab Find: Curltopia Salon

I love going to the salon, like most women, but nothing makes me tootsie roll more than a salon that is attentive to my curly hair needs.

Curltopia is that salon and more.

I first encountered Curltopia Salon at the  Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curl preview, and they invited me back for a complimentary service.

Curltopia is a multi-ethnic curly hair boutique salon that specializes in all textures under the sun.

Whether you have wavy, curly, coily, kinky, transitioning, relaxed, or unrelaxed hair, they have a stylist perfect for you. A cut, Deva-cut, color, highlights, roller set, blowout, wash & go, two strand twist, flat-twists, roller-sets, lock maintenance, relaxers, and thermal straightening are just a sample of the services provided by Curltopia stylists.

And, every service comes with a shampoo, complimentary deep conditioning treatment, consultation, a prescription of hand-selected products specifically for your hair, and instructions on how to maintain your hair at home.

Customer getting a “shingling.”

Ashli was my stylist for the day and she was very informative.

During the service Ashli made sure I was informed, comfortable, and asked questions about my hair and hair care routine. Ashli also explained what products she was using, why she was using them, and gave me a list of products and tips to maintain my hair on my own at home.

It was nice to have a stylist who concentrated on me and my hair only, none of the rush and fuss I’ve normally encountered in the past at other salons. 

Many popular “natural” hair product lines are available at the salon. Miss Jessie’s and the Moroccan Oil line are just a few of the products they use and carry, and even if you aren’t getting serviced you can buy the above products in the salon.

The first time I stepped foot into Curltopia I was taken with the chandeliers and damask decor. If I could figure out how to steal their chairs, without going to jail, I would.

I received a wash, much needed and overdue cut, steam hydration treatment, and rod set the day of my Curltopia visit.

Ashli whipped my curls into shape, and after sitting under the steamer I could tell the difference in my hair.

If you would like more information on Curltopia and how you can book an appointment, please visit them online. Also for discounts on services, be sure to like them on Facebook.
