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 […]

Sushi House Hayakawa – Atlanta, GA

Another place that has been on the list for a decade is Sushi House Hayakawa.  When it first appeared on my radar, I was not nearly as adventurous an eater as I’ve evolved into.  As a result, whenever I was looking for a place to go, it kept moving toward the bottom of the list.  […]

Yet Tuh – Doraville, GA

Yet Tuh came to my mind as we headed up Buford Highway on a Saturday afternoon.  I had read a review about them in Atlanta Magazine, recently, which (basically) said that a meal at Yet Tuh is like Sunday lunch at your grandma’s house – provided that your grandma is Korean and can cook.   […]

Man Chun Hong – Doraville, GA

Man Chun Hong is another place that has been on my list since 2006.  Not being a giant kimchi fan, Korean places tend to keep getting leap-frogged by other cuisine in the area.  This Sunday morning, we were heading up Buford Highway and I read a few Yelp reviews on the way.  Everyone was raving […]

El Rey Del Taco – Doraville, GA

On this Saturday of wandering around town, we found ourselves on the northern perimeter as my stomach began to rumble.  I had just seen an article on Eater Atlanta about the best tacos in town and remembered that we were near El Ray Del Taco and the destination was set.   Their al pastor tacos […]

Mamak Malaysian Street Food – Doraville, GA

I had not heard of Mamak until I saw Bill Addison’s article before Christmas about where he refers folks to go to when they ask him where to eat in Atlanta.  So last week, when Grant asked if we’d like to meet them and Leslie there on Sunday night, I queried she-who-keeps-the-calendar and then said […]

Chef Liu – Doraville, GA – CLOSED

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED. I’d like to start this post with a big “thank you” to Atlanta Magazine.  In August of 2006 you published “101 Favorite Restaurants” (which was actually 124) and gave eating out a goal.  You see, I’m a goal oriented guy and “checking things off a list” works for me.  More than […]

Gu’s Bistro – Doraville, GA – CLOSED

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED. Earlier this week, we received an invite to join Grant and Marie (of Marie, Let’s Eat) and their friends Helen and Vincent (who were delightful) at Gu’s Bistro.  As we had not been to Gu’s, and I’d seen a lot of talk about it – including a reference on Atlanta Magazine’s […]
