Hammock Trading Co Restaurant (Sandy Springs, GA)

Recently our company took us to a new local restaurant located on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, Georgia.  There were hammocks hanging from the ceilings and Jimmy Buffet music was playing in the background.  There’s a great bar with large HD TVs if you want to hang out and watch your favorite game.

There were lots of delicious seafood goodies on the menu along with their famous watermelon mojito.  I was blown away by their good food.  We later learned the chef of Hammock has worked at the Bellagio in Vegas and at Bones in Atlanta.  The dedication to his craft really shows in his food.

On Tuesdays they have $2 street tacos so I called them up to inquire a bit more about them.  They are served on charred corn tortillas and you today could have them stuffed with either brisket or shrimp.  The shrimp also features radish, onion and cilantro.  The brisket has a kick of jalepeno coupled with tomat, onion and cilantro.  I decided to order three tacos and give them a try.   I was pleasantly surprised to find that the chef had decided to treat me to four tacos at no extra charge.  The fresh shrimp was juicy and you could taste some chili sauce.  The brisket has a great kick to it and is really flavorful.

On my first visit I had the oysters rockefeller and some homemade bbq chips with a blue cheese sauce, scallions and bacon.  Did I mention the watermelon mojito? 

This place rocks!  Please overlook the fact that they are situated next to Happy Hocker Pawn and get over to the Hammock to treat yourself to some seriously good eats.  Your taste buds will thank me!

Okay, so I am one of those people who is obsessed with the Food Network.  Watching Master Chef or The Next Food Network Star is must see t.v. in my world.  Sometimes my husband gets tired of watching all these shows about food because it makes him very hungry, but I can’t help it!  It is a sickness and I don’t think I can be cured….and who wants to? 

I work full-time so I only get to cook for the family on the weekends.  During the week my hubby runs the kitchen.  If I had my druthers I would be cooking every day.  It relaxes me.  It lets me envision and create something that will hopefully be delicious!  Since my dream of opening my own gluten free cupcake shop will probably not come to fruition in this lifetime I’ll have to be satisified with sharing my gluten free experiences with the cyber world.
