In 2010, I (Nick Love) spent over 45% of my annual income eating out at some of Atlanta's best (and worst) restaurants. So, who better to guide you through the city's crowded dining terrain?? Now, I, along with my team of Hip-Hop generation foodies, will expose and review ATL's newest hits, hidden gems, and old favorites. Hopefully, this blog will earn us a free meal or two while we point you guys in the direction of some good food and steer you away from the wackness. Let's eat!!!

Review: EAST ATLANTA THAI & SUSHI | To Live & Thai In The A

Name: East Atlanta Thai & Sushi
Cuisine: Thai
Neighborhood: East Atlanta Village
Address: 467 Flat Shoals Ave. Atlanta, GA 30316
Phone: 404-522-5992

In desperate need of a retreat from the most stressful time of year (Christmas), my friend Jessica and I decided to try a new cuisine.   Our choice - East Atlanta Thai & Sushi.

Phuket Paradise Island Cocktail
As soon as we walked in, the bold decor and abstract paintings on the wall gave us a warm welcome.  I immediately noticed the full bar and knew we were in the right place.

To start the madness off right, we ordered the Phuket Paradise Island cocktail.  I won't tell you how I pronounced Phuket but, trust, I was loud, wrong, and completely embarrassed.  Lol.  I will say, while it could have been stronger for my personal taste, it was a very good drink.

Thai Wings
 In the spirit of being indecisive,we  dove in headfirst and ordered the Thai Wings and the Yummi-Yummi Roll for our appetizers.  The Thai Wings were perfectly crispy and tossed in a chili sauce, which was a great balance of spicy and sweet.   For novice sushi eaters like Jessica and I, EAV Thai & Sushi offers the option to flash-fry all of their sushi for a small up-charge.  While the sushi aficionados of the world would have been appalled by our selection, the Yummi-Yummi Roll was just that. . .  YUMMY!!!  Absolutely perfect choice for newbies like us.

For our entrees, Jessica ordered the Spicy Thai Fried Rice prepared with chicken, bell peppers, and onions in a basil chili sauce which put a spicy twist on the traditional Asian style fried rice.  I decided to go with the Drunken Noodles which as chicken, bell peppers, and onions "drunken" in a spicy chili sauce.  Because I absolutely love spicy food, I asked for my entree to be extra spicy.  They MORE than honored my request.  My mouth and ears were BURNING and I loved every minute of it!!!  Luckily, since we ordered off the lunch menu, I was able to wash some of that heat down with my choice of soup or salad.

Overall, I would have to say that I really enjoyed my time at EAV Thai & Sushi and can't wait to go back.  Everything from the food, to the service, to the bold decor made my experience a great one. 

And, don't let me forget to mention that the meal was very reasonably priced.  I highly suggest this place for anyone look to venture out a little bit into the culinary spectrum.
