Around the World in Eight Weeks with Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes GIVEAWAY

West of I-75 on Barrett Pkwy.

1125 Ernest Barrett Pkwy.
Kennesaw, GA 30144-4534


My husband and I recently had the opportunity to go to Sweet Tomatoes for dinner to try out their “Around the World in Eight Weeks” promotion. On our visit we got to take a tour of Asia through marvelous cuisine such as Thai Peanut & Red Pepper salad, a make-it-yourself Asian inspired broth and Won Ton Chicken Happiness.   Every two weeks, Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes chefs are cooking up different internationally inspired recipes from around the globe.

In addition to the delicious menu they also have some great specials including their online kids’ activity sheets (available for download) which include coupons for 99 cent kid’s meals and $19.99 family dinner coupons! You can also save an additional 10% off on your next visit by sharing your trip around the world by sending a virtual postcard from the different countries you’ve “visited” to friends and family via email, Facebook or Twitter.

Our opinion?  We have always been huge fans of Sweet Tomatoes.  It never ceases to amaze me to sit and watch my husband eat 2 plates full of salad when I can’t get him to eat a single carrot at home.  The food at the Barrett location in Kennesaw is ALWAYS very clean and the buffets are always properly filled so there isn’t a wait.  I especially love their New England Style Clam Chowder, the chocolate chip cookies, and their sweet tea.  My husband is a huge fan of the tons of salad topping choices you find on their salad bar.  Although they have a very nice pasta station neither of us eat off of it very often because we fill up on the soup and salad; however, everything we have had has been yummy!

Here are the tour dates and cuisine:

Asia: August 17-29

Wonton Chicken Happiness Tossed Salad

Thai Chicken & Peanut Foccacia

Greece: September 1-14

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup (a guest favorite!)

Whole Gran Greek Couscous with Feta and Pine Nuts

  50. barbara wright says

    Definitely Mexico! But I usually stuff myself with their out-of-this-world french onion soup when they have it, so it probably doesn’t make a difference 🙂

  51. barbara wright says

    I follow you on twitter and tweeted http://twitter.com/bsw529/status/25987844908

  52. barbara wright says

    I love it! love it! love it! We have one within walking distance from our house. Unfortunately, my husband doesn’t think it’s worth the price because it doesn’t come with a hunk of meat, so I mainly go there at lunchtime when we have company. And when people take me out for my birthday, that’s where I always pick.
