The Mughals – Norcross, GA

In today’s episode our intrepid hero goes in search of chicken 65. Then he begins to  ponder:  If there is religious significance in the numerological naming?; and What the first 64 versions of the dish lasted like?  Actually, this was a lunch meet up with some other Atlanta food bloggers (Grant from Marie, Let’s Eat, […]

G.A.B.B.A. – Norcross, GA – CLOSED
