TINY BistroJessica | November 28, 2009
Atlanta’s Westside has a ton of lunch spots I’m trying to check out, and last week’s stop on my rounds was TINY Bistro. TINY is an offshoot of Figs and Honey Catering that serves mostly sandwiches and salads during lunch hours. It is located at the weird little intersection of 8th St, Marietta St, and Brady St, or across the street from my cupcake fav Caryn’s Cakes if you’ve checked it out
I’ve heard lots of good things about TINY’s Cuban sandwich (guava mojo pork loin, ham, pickles, swiss, on Cajun pistolet) and decided I was in the mood to try one out on my visit:
I’ve eaten at Taco Bell exactly twice in my life (their “meat” doesn’t agree with me), but I remember one of their commercials describing a concoction as “chewy, crunchy, melty, adjective, adjective…” Whatever that was, it should have been describing TINY’s Cuban. This sandwich was SO.GOOD. There was so many textures in perfect harmony with each other. I’m not sure what “Cajun pistolet” bread is either, but it made for a great pressed sandwich. The ham and pork loin were really yummy, and the pork had a slight, but not overpowering sweetness from the guava marinade.
In contrast with the delicious but pricey Star Provisions, TINY offers great lunch portions for reasonable prices. I ordered the half sandwich for $4.95 and was struggling to finish. TINY Bistro’s parent, Figs and Honey Catering, offers take-home dishes and special menus (including holiday) for catering parties. I’m really REALLY looking forward to visiting TINY Bistro again, but it will be a struggle to order anything but the Cuban!
