On our visit to Savannah, Ga. to see a close family friend we decided to partake in the local cuisine. It’s always a good time trying out local food and engaging in new cultural experiences. Here’s a list of where we went and what we ate along the way.
First stop was “The Chromatic Dragon located at 514 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. A unique pub and eatery that has captured the interests of its clientele, the 21st Century video gamers. The establishment is a gamers paradise with food, drinks, big screen tv’s, games galore and a bar. Pick your seat, select your controller and order from a hearty menu. Everything from drinks, appetizers, lunches and entrees. The list of video games is long, long enough to keep you and your friends entertained and satisfied for the evening.
The gamers theme extends through out the eatery including wall decor, friendly staff members and right down to the menu. You will get a kick out of reading the many food options “The Chromatic Dragon” offers. All item descriptions are geared toward favorite video games, past and present. Oh, did it bring back the memories.
Our choices from the menu included:
Nachos of Doom – Fresh traditional nachos with a spicy twists. Simply delicious.
Starfox Barrell Rolls – Corned beef, swiss cheese and sauerkraut rolled into a spring roll and deep-fried. Who ever thought of such a combination. What a game changer.
Our entrees were “The Castlevania” a classic corned beef sandwich with sauerkraut. The “1 Up Burger” a large mushroom and swiss and “The Tractor Bean” sliders made with black beans. All sandwiches were equally good and served with piping hot steak fries on the side.
All this delicious food makes this a must see and unique experience for the visitors of Historic Savannah.
Next we ventured out to an up scale English pub and restaurant called “Churchill’s Gastropub & Taphouse“. Located on 13 West Bay St., Savannah, Ga. Nestled in the historic area of downtown, just two blocks from River Street, this little pub was a wonderful food experience. A refurbished two storey authentic English pub right down to the mahogany bar that was shipped to Savannah straight from the United Kingdom.
Churchill’s offers a large selection of imported beers to choose from. Choose your seat from the first level of traditional English pub scenery or venture up stairs to partake in the open terrace overlooking historic Savannah.
The menu has a large selection of English and American favorites. We ordered the Giant Bavarian Pretzel. I have never seen such a deliciously, huge, soft, yummy pretzel in my life. It was served with two different spicy mustard dipping sauces. You could make a meal out of just one of these pretzels.
Our entrees were as follows:
Paella – A rice and seafood dish with added Chorizo in a red sauce. Not too heavy and very flavorful.
Banger’s & Mash – Pork sausage marinated in beer severed with mashed potatoes and onion gravy. Hubby seemed to enjoy his meal as there was nothing left with no complaining. 🙂
Rosemary Biscuits – House made fresh biscuits with home-made jam and honey butter. These were tasty little treat which went well with Churchill’s full flavored fresh brewed coffee.
Enjoying the whole experience, I would give Churchill’s a two thumbs up for a relaxing adult dinning experience you wouldn’t want to miss. *Side Note*
Churchill’s opens at 5:00 pm till 1:00 a.m. for dinner meals only.
Probably my favorite evening meal was prepared from the Tangerine Fusion & Sushi Bar located at 11215 Abercorn St., Savannah, Ga. Tangerine is on the south side of Savannah and was rated one of the best sushi bars in the area. I was able to experience why. The food and atmosphere perked up the senses and taste buds as soon as you walked in the door. The owners have created an atmosphere of Pan-Asian and Thai style with grace. Warm, bright colors splashed the walls mixed with traditional Asian flowers and decor make for a relaxing adult dinning expirence.
Food choices are numerous as the menu leans toward seafood and chicken, however they do offer pork and beef dishes. I was not disappointed with the quality or quantity of the portions.
We were not able to dine in as we arrived very late in the evening, but the staff were more than willing to prepare us a take out selection. I would highly recommend giving Tangerine Fusion & Sushi Bar a try if you’re a lover of Asian Cuisine. We hope to be able to dine in next time. *Side note* I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day, they were just as delicious.
Savannah is a fun place to visit not only for it’s historical value but also for it’s food selections. There is something there for everyone’s taste buds and pocket book. Come hungry and leave satisfied knowing that Savannah Eats.
