SimpleSpoons Matcha Cream Puff & Hot Chocolate Trio Mix Review

Matcha is an unquestionable addiction to us. For once, it has 137 times more anti-oxidant than regular green tea. So having a cup of matcha means you’re reaping equivalent benefits of 10 cups of normal green tea. Second, it’s technically ‘powdered tea’ and so it’s easy to create some wonderful desserts/drinks/cakes out of the powder. Check out our recipe here if you want some delicious homemade matcha drinks. Having that said, we’re been addicted to a new kind of matcha...

SimpleSpoons Matcha Brownie & Promo Code

Brownie is magical, don’t you think? It’s a classic to all chocolate lovers, which I know there are a lot out there. Brownie can be eaten anywhere, anytime. What could be better to have a piece of brownie in the office on a busy day? But I’m one of those rare ones who don’t like the rich chocolate taste. It’s bitter. I rather opt for something pure sweet like the Matcha Cream Puff. However, to my girlfriend, brownie can make...

Ton Ton Restaurant – Japanese Ramen in Ponce City Market

We first knew of Guy Wong – Atlanta’s rising chef- through Miso Izakaya and then got our heart hooked by Le Fat, so it was inevitable that we just couldn’t wait to pay a visit to Ton Ton since it’s Wong’s third restaurant establishment – another great one we must admit.

“You are the average of the five people you spend your time most with”  – Jim Rohn Have you ever heard this saying? We know we have.

5 best bubble tea places in Atlanta

America is a coffee country. But for years, bubble tea has been taking its footstep into the cornerstone of modern American life. The Taiwanese invention first got its start in the 1980s with purely tapioca pearls in a glass of iced sweetened tea. Overtime, bubble tea has advanced to milk tea, flavored tea and though tapioca pearls, or ‘boba’, still play a big role in each cup, we’re now free to add other toppings such as fruit jelly or aloe...
