Happy Day at Cloud IX!!! I've been meaning to hip you guys to this for quite some time but it always slips my mind when I'm writing my posts for the week. However, it rarely slips my mind to make it over to there to grab lunch or dinner. Every time I bite into those fried green tomatoes or those tilapia fingers, I say to myself, "Self, you should really put your ATL Bite Life fam on to this incredible food at these incredible prices". Then, I take another bite and I forget about all about you. Smh. What can you do?? *shoulder shrug*
It's not my fault. If you've ever had the food here, you already know what it is. If not, let me school you. Cloud IX sits at 177 Peters St right in the Castleberry District. It's a Caribbean/soul food hybrid on the far end of Peters closest to Spring St away from the Slice/255/Baltimore Seafood cluster of restaurants. EVERY TUESDAY, they run a Happy Hour-type special where all the appetizers, cocktails, and martinis on the menu are HALF PRICE ALL DAY LONG!!! Trying to describe their food and drinks with mere words just doesn't do them justice. It's something your tongue really needs to personally experience to fully appreciate. And, getting them with a 50% discount is like hitting the food lottery.
I highly recommend pretty much everything!!! The Heavenly Wings are pretty popular. My personal choice of late has been the Crab Fritters and/or the Fish Fingers. If you get an appetizer or two to go along with some of their delicious side items (which are always $3), you could end up with a complete meal that is really filling and extremely tasty for around $10. Beat that!!! And don't forget about the drinks. I think the ladies will really appreciate the martinis they serve. They may be a little too pretty for the guys but I say "swallow your pride and order yourself a fruity drink". Lol
Today is Tuesday so you know where you need to be this evening. Make sure you ask for Rasheeda to be your waitress/bartender when you get there. She's the best!!! Tell her I sent you. Tip well!!!
I may be there with the cameras today so say hello if you fall thru.
