Restaurant Review: Sun In My Belly

Pin It
Good morning!
How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

It has been so rainy in Atlanta!  Yesterday it poured all day which meant it was the perfect lazy Sunday.  I did exciting grown-up stuff: laundry, clean the apartment, dishes - don't be jealous!  The BF and I started watching Iron Man last night, apparently the 3rd ones comes out pretty soon and I haven't seen a single movie.  We got about 1/2 way through when the cable went out, boo!!!  I've already set up the DVR to record it next time it's on :) 
Have you seen any of the Iron Man movies?

------- Restaurant Review -------

A few weekends ago the BF and I went out to dinner at a new-to-us restaurant, Sun In My Belly.  They are mostly known for their brunch, but recently started serving dinner as well.  I purchased a dinner coupon through Scout Mob - it was $40 for 2 drinks (beer or wine), 1 appetizer, 2 salads, 2 entrees, and 1 dessert. 

SIMB is located in the neighborhood of Kirkwood - on the south side of Atlanta.  The vibe is very cool - shabby chic / eclectic.  There were tons of colored mason jars decorating the space and big paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling.

To start, we each had a salad.  Mine was arugula, blue cheese, apples, pecans and a champagne vinaigrette.  The BF had a spinach salad with blueberries, oranges, red onion, & almonds.

 We shared an appetizer - the pork belly with seasonal puree.  It was covered in a delicious balsamic glaze and fresh rosemary with a side of sweet potato puree.  I could have just eaten that for dinner.

For our main course, I had salmon on a bed of greens with couscous on the side.  The BF had fried chicken, mac n cheese and collards.  Everything was great!  Our main courses took a while to come out- apparently the first round of fried chicken was not to the chefs liking.  It was nice to know the chef took his time with each entree and made something special for every guest. 
For dessert we shared a banana pudding creme brulee.  It was so good that we forgot to take a picture!  But imagine banana pudding with a sugar brulee'd crust on top.  Amazing!

Have you tried any new-to-you restaurants lately?
Have you ever purchased a Scout Mob dinner coupon?

I still have not been there, but it's on my list for sure - looks amazing!! And I use Scoutmob all the time, but didn't realize they had dinner coupons. I've only ever used the in-store deals. Will have to check it out, thanks! :)

I highly recommend SIMB! I hope to go back for brunch sometime soon. The Scoutmob coupons are a great deal, definitely check them out!
