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 […]

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 […]

OddBird – Atlanta, GA

For the last couple of months, I’ve been meaning to get to OddBird, the restaurant within a restaurant serving dinner in the West Egg space.  There were a couple of hindrances – it is dinner only and only open Wednesday – Saturday.  But I was drawn in by two words: “hot chicken”.  Hot chicken is […]
