How Crispy Express – Atlanta

After the grouper sandwich search found at FishMonger, the next sandwich on the list was from How Crispy Express. This former pop up, now in a storefront in Summerhill is just across the patio from Wood’s Chapel. I’ve seen the signage several times but never gone in. I’ve also browsed the menu on-line, several times, […]

Fishmonger – Atlanta, GA

Everywhere I’ve looked for the last several months, there’s been a social media reference to Fishmonger and their blackened grouper sandwich. The mention that put them on “my list” was their inclusion on the 2022 edition of Atlanta Magazine’s best restaurants list. This afternoon we were doing some Christmas shopping in town around lunchtime. I […]

3+3 LanZhou Ramen – Kennesaw, GA

The Companion – Atlanta, GA

Almost 7 years ago, to the day, we visited Steinbeck’s Ale House, in Oakhurst, after hearing about their burger. A couple of weeks ago, I was reading an article about restaurants that had opened in 2020 (and survived Covid) that ought to be visited. And it was there that I read about Steinbeck’s chef, Andy […]

Emmy Squared Pizza – Atlanta, GA

The last time we were in Nashville, one place that popped up on every best burger list was Emmy Squared Pizza.  I thought it a bit odd that a burger from a pizza place was on these “best of” lists, but who would lie about such things on the Internet?  (Actually, they won Nashville’s Battle […]

Warung Indonesian Halal Restaurant – Doraville, GA

This week I found a new restaurant, of all places, in my inbox. This week’s Gravy for Breakfast email, from Southern Foodways Alliance, was all about Warung Indonesian Halal Restaurant. I won’t reiterate the whole article, but this restaurant was born of the pandemic and has included Halal in their name and seen it make […]

The Slutty Vegan – Duluth, GA

For the last two plus years, I’ve continuously heard about / read about Pinky Cole’s Slutty Vegan.  The original location, on Edgewood, has had lines out the door every time we’ve been by.  And since, frankly, I am a dyed-in-the-wool carnivore, I wasn’t too excited about standing in line to eat vegan food. I had […]

Birrieria Landeros – Duluth, GA

Looking for lunch on a Thursday, I saw a new sign on what used to be Curry-licious, for Birreria Landeros. Going in, I recognized the tables and bar, but the wall art and vibe was very different. I was the only person there, so the young man asked me if I wanted some music or […]

Girl Diver – Atlanta, GA

For our anniversary, we were looking for some place new to try when I remembered hearing about Girl Diver, which opened in the Madison Yards development in late 2020. Originally announced as a Vietnamese / Cajun seafood place, it feels more general-Asian-meets-seafood-by-the-pound.  But I had heard they had a killer lobster roll, and I happen […]

Pink Pig – Cherry Log, GA (Quick Bite)

For years, Pink Pig Barbecue, in Cherry Log, has been on my list, but we always seem to be trying to get somewhere, on time, when we’re driving that part of 575/515. Today, we had time and I decided it was our day to give it a try.  Owned and operated by the Holloway family […]
