My Take: Most people know Slim’s restaurant for their signature buffalo wings which are apparently a big deal. The Mrs and I went there on a Tuesday night (for the live band, The HashTag Band 👌, every Tuesday from 8pm) and just had to try these wings. Uhmmm…I don’t know whether it was an off night for the chef, but didn’t really feel the wings – there were a tad-bit too tangy for me, like there was too much vinegar, or may be that just how they make them… Well, you could give it a try yourself, you might like it, but personally – meh! I prefer the wings at ArtCaffe. I did enjoy the cold beer though 🙂
PS: Check out Dotty and The HashTag Band every Tuesday at Slims for awesome Jazz music

My Take: If you’ve been to “Tea Spot”, that coffee/tea place that used to be on Koinange street, well, it’s no longer there. In it’s place, Artlantis. I like the name, sounds so posh and rolls off the tongue quite nicely, especially for those who picked up an american accent over-night without ever leaving the country.
Artlantis is an awesome place to chill, its a coffee house (and the city has sooo many of them these days) with the couch booths and all. Makes for a great place for a casual or even professional..ish hangout.
I especially love the lighting, kinda subtle, not blinding like what you’d find at some fast food joints around town (you honestly need your stunnaz on to enter some of these joints). Like most coffee houses in town, the food is…uhmmm…I’d like to say average, but that would come-off like a bad thing. The food is actually really good – like really, though nothing soooo mind-blowingly awesome that you’ll one day tell your grand children about, but good enough that you’ll visit the place again. Average – the good kind.
