Pho Dai Loi – Forest Park, GA

Back last spring, I finally made it to Pho Dai Loi 2 on Buford Highway, after it having been on my list for more than 10 years.  As we were heading home from the airport, I asked my beloved where we should lunch and received a very committed “I want pho.” I punched “pho” into […]

Pho Hoang Long – Smyrna, GA

You could say that this pho was just what the doctor ordered.  Well, kind of.  The last time I saw my GP, we were talking about my diet and he asked if I liked Asian food.  I mentioned where we had eaten recently and he said no, you need to go here, instead, for Vietnamese […]

Jinya Ramen Bar – Sandy Springs, GA

With locations in eleven states and two Canadian provinces, the goal of founder Tomonori Takahashi was to make the daily ramen he was used to in his native Japan readily available to Americans.  To make it as common as going out for a burger.  Or ordering pizza.  He started in California in 2010 and opened […]

Sushi House Hayakawa – Atlanta, GA

Little Serow – Washington, DC

Sushi Huku 

As I was heading to meet some folks in Vinings, I went back to the well of the original list, once again, and looked at the options.  I found that Sushi Huku was on the list and on the way.  While it has a Sandy Springs address, it is right there at Akers Mill and Powers Ferry […]

Scott’s Eats and Sweets – Mableton, GA

There was a recent Yelp email about the best pho places outside the perimeter (off Buford Highway) and I was shocked (SHOCKED, I say) that one of them was in Mableton.  So tonight, when we were looking for a place to eat, and didn’t want to drive into “the City”, I suggested that we try Scott’s […]
