Apparently there’s this awesome thing called Meat Week
. It ran all last week. I probably should have written about it sooner, but oh well. That’s why you should be friends with n00bcakes
, like I am. Then you can know
all about these things, too.

Anyway, the last public event of Meat Week ATL was Heirloom Market. A group of us showed up unannounced to join in the fun, wreak havoc, and eat delicious meats.
This place is cool. It’s half all-American barbecue-ness, and half Korean-style flair. In fact, this establishment of greasy-fingered dining is co-chef’ed by both American and a Korean culinary experts. The result is what the restaurant’s website refers to as “Seoul food.” What’s not to love?
The special of the day was a spicy Korean pork sandwich, which I naturally ordered along with a side of the cabbage and black-eyed peas and Korean sweet potatoes. The sandwich was good, though I think I personally would have enjoyed the spicy Korean pork more in a non-sandwich form, and used a different style of meat for the BBQ sandwich role. But that’s me.
|This was my food. Although by the time of this photo, I had already inhaled the siracha-covered pickles and my side of cabbage and black-eyed peas.|
Now, there was a slight misunderstanding on my part about the Korean sweet potatoes. See, I read that phrase as sweet potatoes that are done in a Korean way. Right up my alley. In actuality, it meant normal potatoes done in a Korean way that is sweet-tasting. Paleo/primals, be warned. That said, they were delicious. This is the second veggie meal I have had where I pledged to go come and buy black sesame seeds immediately. Haven’t done it yet, but they are seriously good. The cabbage/black-eyed peas were fine, and I tried the Brunswick stew and mac ‘n’ cheese, which were both excellent.
I think I can safely say that a good time was had by all. We look forward to next year’s Meat Week – Hopefully we’ll be able to hit up more than one event! In the meantime, definitely check out Heirloom Market. It’s one of those wonderful places that has a (lack of) curb appeal that belies the depth of awesomenss waiting inside.
