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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Better Half – Atlanta, GA

Located on 14th Street, just off the Georgia Tech campus, is a relatively new entrant to the Atlanta dining scene – Better Half, which started life as a supper club, Pushstart Kitchen.  Husband and wife Zach and Kristina Meloy began this labor of love at the Goat Farm in 2011 and converted it into a […]

10 Degrees South

A Friday night date-night visit to another place that’s been on “the list” for more than 10 years, 10 Degrees South.  Advertising itself as Atlanta’s only fine dining South African restaurant, we made an early reservation and arrived to a restaurant which was being filled, literally, from the left.   According to our extremely helpful […]
