Tasting Johns Creek

by Melissa on August 27, 2010

Even though we live way, way out in the suburbs, apparently… there are still some really great restaurants and eateries out here.

Tonight, Paul and I went to the 3rd annual Taste of Johns Creek at Chattahoochee High School.  This event is a fundraiser for the high school and middle school football teams.  I had no idea it was such a popular event.  Of course, being a (recent years-since 2001-occasionally-stuck-up) city girl, I was super skeptical about this event, and I’m glad to say that I was very pleasantly surprised.

Yes, there are a ton, a ton, of chain restaurants out here.  But, there are also a lot of great family-owned, unique restaurants.

Okay, enough chatting … on to the food porn.

Left: Paul loving him some pizza from Pepperoni’s Tavern.  Right: My new favorite froyo place, Yogur-Le-Hee <3

Still drooling just looking at this photo.  Love me some Yogur-Le-Hee!  This time, strawberry flavored froyo with strawberries, mango and kiwi.

After I snapped this photo of Chick-Fil-A‘s new spicy chicken sandwich, the Marketing Director came up to us and complimented me on the beauty shot of the sandwich that I just took with the Chick-Fil-A car in the background.  I must admit… I was seriously caught off guard, I mean, it’s not often that I get compliments about a photo that I just took.

Hey, Chick-Fil-A!  If you have any marketing jobs available… I’m available!  * huge grin*

Mmm… meatballs by Luciano’s.  One of the tastiest Italian spots in Johns Creek.

Now these were some yummy, just perfect cupcakes and cookies by The Patio.  Now, I’m a strange one, I don’t have a huge sweet tooth.  So I only tried the lemon cupcakes – pacing myself – and they were delish.  Paul had all four offerings: Thumbprint Cookie, Lemon cupcake, Chocolate Chip Cookie and Red Velvet cupcake, and the verdict: all delicious.

Bamboo garden. Now, this place is on my must-go-to-eat-at list now.  This restaurant has a Indian-Chinese fusion menu.  And all I know is that the vegetarian hakka noodles that I tasted were amazing.

Here we are in line for Fresh 2 Order.  Paul tried to take this photo on his own about 6-7 times (no joke) on his camera phone (no front facing camera), and failed every single time.  Finally, a kind gentleman in line behind us took pity on him and snapped the photo for us.

Fresh 2 Order, oh I love this place.  It’s kind of a gourmet version of Panera Bread.  They had a great spread at the event tonight, if the line waiting to get the food was any indication.

Final verdict, Taste of Johns Creek: One great event.  Most definitely recommend it if you’re in the area next year.  I will have it on my calendar!
