We often eat out around the city and have discovered quite a few gems of restos in Atlanta. Yesterday for our book club gathering we visited Yebo at Phipps Plaza. Yebo serves South African cuisine in an intimate space that was decorated in neutral tones that also incorporated very textures ( loved it and want a room done similar in our new home). We sat at a round wooden table, which I really liked because it helps to facilitate great conversations ( we did being up some good stuff…more to come on those) and you are able to see everyone. The food was delish! I had a fried chicken dish that included a peri-peri sauce (kinda like a hot sauce…yum) , atop a corn purée and a side of bacon collards. I accompanied this with a glass of Riesling. All if it was wonderful and everyone else enjoyed their meals ranging from fish tacos to bobotie(a traditional South African dish). Oh and I can’t forget about the red bean hummus that the girls made me try and ended up being pretty tasty. I am looking forward to a date night here with the Hubbs to get his thoughts on it. However I do suggest that you give it a try and enjoy yourself!
And oh yes the book…”Invention of Wings” by Sue Monk Kidd was the topic and we will have to continue our discussion. But so far it’s a pretty good read!
Be sure to let me know what you think if you happen to visit Yebo!
