Bleu House Market – Norcross, GA

I love the chance to meet one of my girls for lunch.  And when the lunch spot, unbeknownst to us, ends up being a barbecue spot, it’s a double win.  Looking for some place new to try, one of her co-workers told her that the Market, in Norcross, was her “kind of place”.  Unsure what […]

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 […]

Illegal Food – Atlanta, GA

We had a meal (or three or four) at Illegal Food back in 2014 and 2015 when they were a popup kitchen at Joystick, but we had not been to their actual location.  Today, when we were in town on a Saturday without plans, I decided it would be “big” burgers for lunch. Off to […]

Jim’s Smokin Que – Blairsville, GA

Sushi House Hayakawa – Atlanta, GA

Another place that has been on the list for a decade is Sushi House Hayakawa.  When it first appeared on my radar, I was not nearly as adventurous an eater as I’ve evolved into.  As a result, whenever I was looking for a place to go, it kept moving toward the bottom of the list.  […]

Ssam Burger – Atlanta, GA

Several months back, there was an article on Eater.com about interesting burgers in Atlanta.  Ssam Burger, on Defoors Ferry popped up.   I had not heard about it, but with our love of the Korean / taco fusion at Hankook, why wouldn’t we like a Korean / burger place? Located in a strip center, next […]

B’s Cracklin’Barbecue – Atlanta, GA

Several months back, I heard that someone was smoking whole hog barbecue in northwest Atlanta.  I made a mental note and figured that I would hear more about it and get there soon enough. Two months passed by when I saw an online article from Atlanta magazine about pitmaster Bryan Furman, at B’s Cracklin’ Barbecue, […]
