Golden Seven Two – Suwanee, GA

In the continuing exploration of places around my office that I haven’t eaten, today’s episode took me up Buford Highway to Suwanee Town Center.  I’ve dined at most of the places currently there (and a couple that are no longer) and drove all the way to the Lawrenceville-Suwanee end of the complex before finding Golden […]

Brush Sushi Izakaya – Decatur, GA

Brush Sushi Izakaya has been on my radar for several months, but the opportunity hasn’t presented itself.  Everyone raves about their omakase service (this translates to “I’ll leave it up to you”, in Japanese and it’s a chef’s choice of sushi and ingredients).  But that much raw seafood is  a bit of a stretch for […]

Takorea – Atlanta, GA

Let me preface this post by saying that we love, love, love Hankook Taqueria and that we make our way there, often, when we’re looking for a quick bite on the West Side.  Heading to a matinee at the Fox on this Sunday, we decided to give chef Tomas Lee’s other restaurant, Takorea, a try. […]

L’ Thai Organic Cuisine & Wine Bar – Tucker, GA

Another place from the original list, L’Thai was a newcomer to the Atlanta scene, back in 2006.  Cut to 2017 and they’re now one of the longest tenured Asian restaurants in Atlanta.  And the first organic Thai restaurant, according to one source, in the South.  This may be the weirdest interior I’ve seen in a […]

Poke’ Bar – Suwanee, GA

Several weeks ago, I saw an emailed article about the rise of poke’ (or Hawaiian poke’) in Atlanta and have been wanting to give it a try.  Last night, heading down Buford Highway I searched for a poke’ place, via Google maps, and found none.  Undaunted, I determined to try it today, for lunch.  Looking […]

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 […]
