Checking Out J’s Asian Street Food

We decided we wanted to try someplace new for the holiday weekend. We were not in the mood for a heavy meal and decided we would try someplace that did "small" bites. We've had J's Asian Street Food on our list since just after it opened and decided to swing by.

Visited Growler Country for an impromptu date night on Saturday. Teresa had seen a post about this local craft beer pub on the Tallahassee Foodies Facebook group recently. Definitely worth a visit!
