My name is Cami, and I’m married to the delicious dish that does the cooking and such. I’m a blogger.
I have a new favorite restaurant: The Savannah Tea Room on Broughton. Granted, my great friend Helen works there, and I lurve seeing her pretty face. But I also double lurve hot tea, and every meal comes with a endless supply. Heaven!
I must admit, the place is a bit fancy for my taste:
But the food is delicious. The meal starts with soup (the soup on this particular day was egg
drop…and, sadly, I thought it was too salty and should’ve opted for the fruit plate):
The entree I ordered on my first visit was tuna tartare (I. love. fresh. tuna!):
Wowza. It was perfectly marinated, seated on a bed of spinach. Honestly, you must, must, MUST drop by and try it yourself; words don’t do it justice.
