At first, Tin Drum Asia Café's rapid service and bright decor evoke the aromatic street stands of Hong Kong, where founder Steven Chan ate throughout his childhood. The traditional ambiance is no accident—the franchise's name also harks back to a bygone era, when a tin drummer would awaken citizens and regale them with current events as they ate the day’s first meal. The electronic kiosks dotting the café, however, plunk this traditional scene in the middle of a cyberpunk setting. They allow patrons to customize their orders based on taste preferences and nutritional content, accommodating dietary endeavors such as vegetarianism and weight-loss goals.

This merger of technology and urban convention reflects a penchant for edgy ideas that also affects the menu. Items inspired by the culinary techniques of Japan, China, Vietnam, and Thailand share space in the savory catalog, taking the form of street tacos, soups, and mango chicken, a take on the general tso's staple that's sweeter than a syrup-soaked army helmet. Music is the final ingredient that charges the atmosphere. Nation's Restaurant News reports that it typically plays at an energizing 120 beats per minute and was a factor in attracting the café's initial college crowds.

At Soul Vegetarian, gravy cascades over the burgers and country-fried steaks and creamy cucumber sauce nestles into a gyro pocket. This picture of decadence aside, even as the chefs eschew animal products, they also avoid heavy fats or preservatives. The result is a surprisingly healthy take on classic Southern cuisine, including macaroni and cheese and cornbread. Savory protein comes in the form of tofu, lentils, and a flexible vegetable-protein roast they've dubbed "kalebone."

Even dessert has a healthy side at Soul Vegetarian. Blenders whir with fruit smoothies and soy shakes, many of which incorporate nutrient-dense foods such as coconut milk and almond butter, and even energy or protein supplements. To make perfectly creamy shakes, the restaurant's food inventors created the soy-based Dream Kream?also available by the scoop.

In ancient times, a man known as the "Tin Drummer" would bring communities together with his titular instrument. Calling people out of their homes as he marched down the street, the Tin Drummer led his followers to the marketplace where they'd tell each other stories, listen to music, and share a meal together. At least, that's the story founder Steven Chan heard as a child in Hong Kong. Regardless of the veracity of the legend, Chan wanted to play a similar, community-building role in his adopted home of Atlanta, even if he couldn't play the tin drum. And so he founded a chain of pan-Asian restaurants known as Tin Drum Asiacaf?.

And by pan-Asian, they really mean they aren't leaving anyone out. Curries from Thailand to India include everything from a creamy panang with coconut sauce to a fiery tikka masala with tomatoes and sauteed chicken. From the street-noodle section, diners can choose from the Singaporean sing chow mein, Cantonese wheat noodles with beef, bean sprouts and spinach, and spicy Japanese spaghetti, made with tomatoes, jalape?os, and yakisoba. And the caf?s aren't afraid to look even further afield. Genre-mashing tacos can be made with teriyaki or hoisin-soaked chicken, or with panko-crusted shrimp; and many of the basic entrees can be requested gluten free.
