Can't Stop, Won't Stop Eating NaanStop

12 October 2018

IMG_3792

We’re thrilled NaanStop will be at Taste of Atlanta next weekend! This delicious fast-casual Indian restaurant uses fresh ingredients and prepares each dish from scratch. That’s probably why the lines are always out the door to get your hands on their most popular dishes. NaanStop’s samosa has won “Atlanta’s Best Savory Pastry” since 2014. This crispy fried pastry stuffed with spiced potatoes and mom’s special spice blend is incredibly satisfying. NaanStop makes each samosa by hand- just one of the elements that shows the care NaanStop puts into every dish they serve.

If you haven’t tried a samosa before, get ready to have a new favorite food. This dish can be equated to other cultural staples- similar to an empanada stuffed with potatoes or a Jewish knish. It has the same crunchy breading on the outside and soft, pillowy potatoes on the inside. NaanStop will be serving these samosas both Saturday, October 20th and Sunday, October 21st at Taste of Atlanta! Ensure you can try this fantastic pastry by buying your tickets to Taste of Atlanta!

Besides quick-served samosas, NaanStop has a variety of menu items. In the photo above, features a Naanwich a.k.a a wrap made in a Naan, the classic Indian flatbread. This Naanwich, in particular, is stuffed with Indian turkey sausage and a variety of vegetables and sauces. IMG_3706Another fan-favorite at NaanStop? Build your own bowl. Start with a base of rice or greens, then add your choice of protein and veggies. In the bowl pictured above, rice was the base, Chicken Tikka Masala the protein, enhanced with vegetables and a dollop of yogurt & cilantro chutney.

The best parts of NaanStop are the quick service, the customizable menu and, of course, the signature samosas that will be offered at Taste of Atlanta. Last chance for tickets- click here to get yours!

Simon’s Restaurant<\/a> in Midtown has been open less than a year and already has a big-time trophy under their belt. The restaurant won “Best Taste” of Sunday at Taste of Atlanta on October 21st. Simon’s is best known for creative southern dishes and a truly Instagram-able build out. Chef Robert Butts crafts a unique and ever-changing menu with options ranging from indulgent to vegan; savory composed plates to painstakingly homemade\u00a0pastries. His enthusiasm is infectious and every restaurant-goer can appreciate the good vibes that radiate from his kitchen and extend throughout the entire dining space.<\/p>\n

Chef Robert updates his menu seasonally and right now, he’s focused on fall comfort foods. We went behind-the-scenes to capture some of these decadent dishes. Watch a Facebook Live with Taste of Atlanta Marketing & Media Manager, Skye Estroff, and Chef Robert for more details of each menu item. <\/a>One of the newly-added items made it to the menu because of it’s appearance on Simon’s <\/a>Taste of Atlanta menu- the Slow Braised Beef Ribs over Pimento Cheese Mashed Potatoes and Crispy Collard Greens with Jack Daniels Au Jus.<\/p>\n

See below for an up-close look at each spotlit dish and come and try Simon’s<\/a> before 2018 ends! This restaurant is the perfect spot for brunch, drinks, dinner, happy hour, late night or group events any\u00a0day of the week (brunch is weekends only).<\/p>\n
