Tapas are the Bee’s Knees!

One of my absolute favorite places to eat in downtown Augusta is Bees Knees. It’s a great place to meet friends and share great conversation and amazing food! Bees Knees is a tapas restaurant and lounge. The name itself suggests it’s cool or hip existence.

Bees Knees is famous for their tapas. Tapas (by definition) are small, savory dishes perfect for sharing. And I can vouch for this. My friends and I frequent Bees Knees! We make it a rule that everyone has to order something different and we sample each others. It’s great!

Tonight my friend Jennifer and I ordered our absolute favorite, the  Pad Thai, a spicy thai rice noodle stir fry with egg, cilantro, garlic, bean sprouts, carrots, & peanuts with your choice of tofu (vegan upon request), chicken or shrimp.

Cortney ordered the Coconut Curry Panang, a spicy thai coconut curry dish over basmati rice with your choice of tofu, chicken or shrimp.

Bees Knees is different because this restaurant takes a global approach to dining. They have a variety of dishes that represent cultures all over the world: Thai, Spanish, French, Japanese, Mediterranean and more! They even offer several options for Vegans and Vegetarians.

May I suggest you try a glass of their homemade red or white sangria with fresh, seasonal fruits, it is both delicious and refreshing.

We also ordered dessert—we had the delish crème brulee and tiramisu!

Soy Noodle House in Downtown Augusta, Georgia

I was craving Pad Thai – and you know how it is when you are craving Pad Thai. There really is no substitute. So I fed my craving at Soy Noodle House on Broad Street in downtown Augusta, Georgia. I went a little early around 11:30, apparently that is not that early. There were plenty of people already there. However, I did manage to get a seat by the window, so I could watch the lunch crowd go by. The Pad Thai hit the spot. The portion was bigger than my head – honestly. And of course I thought ‘there is no way I can eat all this’, but alas I did. Yummy. It was such a nice day – the folks sitting behind me asked if it was okay to move to a table outside, which they did. Next time I think I will sit outside as well. One other thing I would like to mention about Soy Noodle House….their unsweet tea was exceptional. I mentioned this to my server, Brittany, and she said that is the very last thing they do before the lunch crowd arrives. So it is always fresh and strong. I loved it.
