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 […]

Chattahoochee Food Works – Atlanta, GA (Quick Bite)

In these pandemic times, for all of us, the world has changed. We still eat three meals a day, but for the last eighteen months very few of them have been “out”, particularly at a new restaurant. On this fall Saturday, we made an outing to IKEA. Since we were already hazarding the universe at […]

Pho Ga Tony Tony – Norcross, GA

Several weeks ago in the AJC dining column, I saw a review of Pho Ga Tony Tony, a restaurant that opened here in 2019. It is styled similarly to Philadelphia’s famed Pho Ga Thanh Thanh. That shouldn’t be a surprise, as Pho Ga Tony Tony’s co-owner and executive chef Tony Le’s parents run the Philly […]

NFA Burger (was Bobby’s Burgers) – Dunwoody, GA

So, one day you’re just rolling along with your food blog, then there’s a pandemic and all of the restaurants close and you don’t have anything to write about…. So you keep an eye on the restaurant openings and closing, mostly closings, to see what’s going on the community. One day, I saw a write […]

The Peach and the Porkchop – Roswell, GA

Somewhere over the last several months, someone told me that I ought to add the Peach and the Porkchop to my list.  We were heading back toward Atlanta from Dawsonville and lunch time was approaching.  I consulted the list and remembered this place.  We arrived about 1:30 and it was still fairly full of folks finishing lunch. […]

Hunter’s Cafe – Shellman Bluff, GA

Heading toward north Florida for a conference, we crossed through Savannah a little late for the places I wanted to stop for lunch.  But I had this place in Shellman Bluff on my list, that had been there for years.  And when I pulled it up on the interwebs, they were closing before we could […]
