Yalla – After taking a lap through Krog Street Market and enjoying free smells, first things first: libations. Sure, you could choose from the 20 craft beers on tap at Hop City, but something about summer brings out our inner kid and the craving for a soda. For a one-of-a-kind handcrafted fizz, try the Lemon and Sage or Blackberry Soda at Yalla, Todd Ginsberg's (of The General Muir, Fred's Meat & Bread) Middle Eastern-inspired food stall. While you're in line, you might as well try the flavorful falafel, made from chickpea fritters, hummus, labne, Israeli salad and pickles, zhug, tahini, herbs, served in pita.
Xocolatl – One smell you can't (and shouldn't) ignore indulging in is that of Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate. Located across from Craft Izakaya and next to Krog Street Pet Works, the Xocolatl stall is stocked with brightly wrapped bars. Be sure not to miss their trail mixes, though; the Moonlight Through the Pines mix pays homage to Georgia with salted pecans and peanuts, 70-percent organic dark chocolate, dried peaches, dried cranberries and raw pumpkin seeds. Wishing you were closer to a coast this summer? Co-founder Elaine Read suggests the tropical Smile with the Rising Sun, which is a mix of salted cashew, almonds, dried papaya, dried coconut and, of course, more of their chocolate for a mental vacay that will have you singing sweet songs in no time.
