Flavor Tripping at {three} sheets

May 3, 2018 Sandy Springs, GA


{my manual focus struggles continue}
The Miracle Fruit is a small berry that rewires the way the palate perceives sour flavors for as long as one hour. Those who have tried the berry claim that everything they eat with acidic properties become sweet. Lemons taste like lemonade, goat cheese turns into cheesecake and Guinness with lemon sorbet becomes a chocolate milkshake.
These are big claims to make for a little piece of fruit, but "flavor tripping" (as they call it) sounded too fun to pass up.



The vibe at {three sheets} is very cabaret/burlesque-y. Their interiors are dark and dreamy, with the perfect mood lighting for sipping and lounging. I did my best to capture the atmosphere in photos, but they didn't do the place justice - at all.

As for the flavor trip? It's true, the berry did rewire my taste buds. Bitting into a lemon wedge tasted exactly like a lemonade popsicle. Goat cheese and sour cream both tasted like icing, and hot sauce tasted like barbecue sauce (but it still burned the back of my throat). Trippy indeed.

  1. Ooooh this sounds super cool. They have you eat the "miracle fruit" first and then you order your meal or is it a pre-fixe meal kind of experience?

    1. Right. First you bite into the fruit, which is like the size of a blueberry. Then you chew and swish it all around your tongue so the pulp covers all your taste buds. Then they have a plate of things to taste ready for you to try. It was weird, but it was, indeed, SUPER cool. Biting into a lemon really tasted like lemonade - good lemonade - like, chick fil a lemonade! LOL. I'm surprised no company has harnessed this power for dieters and sweet-tooth-owners everywhere.

  2. Ok, now I HAVE to try this when I'm in Atlanta again. I'm supposed to be visiting in June so I'm making sure this is the place that visit. And where can I buy this miracle fruit so I can have with me while I endure this diet? LOL!

    1. You'll love it. Check the website first. I think they only do it on Wednesdays.
