The Alden – Chamblee, GA

Several months back, maybe a year or more, I read an article about the opening of the Alden, in Chamblee, in Atlanta magazine. From that point, I’ve had it on the short list of places to try. This Tuesday, as I was heading to meet some friends in Buckhead, I was heading down Peachtree and […]

Lan Zhou Ramen – Chamblee, GA

Back in October, I was heading down Buford Highway, looking for dinner, when I put “ramen” in Google maps. It led me to Lan Zhou Ramen.  Lan Zhou shares a parking lot with both Chef Liu and Supermercado Chicago (home of fantastic tamales at the counter in the back – and the best fresh masa […]

Co’m Vietnamese Grill 

I’ve been meaning to eat at Co’m Vietnamese Grill for quite a while.  We had even been in one night for dinner while my beloved was doing the whole thirty and couldn’t find any dishes that weren’t rice or noodle based, so we went elsewhere.   When a cohort wanted to meet for lunch near the […]

Xelapan Cafeteria – Doraville, GA

One of my buddies sent me an email the other morning from Atlanta Magazine about Xelapan Cafeteria, telling me that we needed to try the place.   The review pegged it as my kind of place – the menu is not in English and there may or may not be somewhere there to interpret it […]

Mini Hot Pots – Chamblee, GA

In our visit a couple of weeks back to Nam Phuong, Mini Hot Pots is one of  the places that I viewed the pictures of on Yelp and decided against for that day.  For what it’s worth, it had been on my list since 2006, and we almost ate there the day we went to […]

Maison Robert Fine Chocolates – Chamblee, GA

When we went to dinner on New Years Eve at Union Hill, I had noticed Maison Robert Fine Chocolates, just down the street.  That night, I had remembered that a friend had told me how good their macaroons were, particularly the coconut ones.  So after an afternoon shopping on Chamblee’s “Antique Row”, we stopped in […]

Nam Phuong – Chamblee, GA

This Saturday, when we planned to lunch with our youngest and her soon to be in-laws, they deferred to me for a lunch spot.  I figured that Buford Highway was kind of in the middle and surveyed a couple of places on my lists, making some preliminary choices.  As we were making our plans, my […]

Union Hill Kitchen – Chamblee, GA

Sometime after Christmas, I was told that I was in charge of New Year’s Eve plans for our party of six.  I immediately went to Google looking for options, then searched open table for available reservations.  One of the options that came up was for Union Hill kitchen in Chamblee.  We had seen executive chef […]

Canton House – Chamblee, GA

“You don’t disappoint.”  That’s definitely a good start to a conversation when you get back into the car after a meal. Confession time: I’m fifty years old and have never had dim sum.  As an extremely suburban child, in a town with no Chinese restaurants, it was one of those exotic ideas that you saw […]

Penang Malaysian Cuisine – Chamblee, GA

Going back to one of my earliest lists (101 Favorite Restaurants, Atlanta Magazine, August, 2006) led us to today’s dining destination, Penang Malaysian Cuisine.  Heading north on Buford Highway from downtown, I originally thought we were going to be able to knock off two spots in one stop, as they both were listed as being […]
