Deliteful Events may have the word "lite" in its name, but its menus have plenty of opportunity for indulgence. Bakers decorate and layer cakes for occasions ranging from kids' birthdays to weddings, each with a huge number of flavor, filling, and icing options. Those range from the homey—applesauce cake and cream-cheese frosting, for instance—to intriguing gourmet blends such as white-chocolate banana cake. Served in a cozy cafe and at catered events, the savory side of the menu holds juicy sandwiches, classic salads, and comfort cuisine such as meatloaf.

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 Asiacafé.
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, jalapeños, and yakisoba. And the cafés 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.
