Buford Highway Blogger’s EatUp #5 – Pho Dai Loi #2

Am I a slacker? Yes. Yes, indeed I am. We haven’t done an “EatUp” since September, 2010. So where to this time? Pho Dai Loi #2 is my go-to for a quick Vietnamese fix. Yes, there are probably “better” Viet restaurants for specific dishes, but PDL2 has a lot going for it. Good pho, tasty […]

Buford Highway Blogger’s EatUp #4 – Chinatown Food Court

The weather cooperated, allowing for drinks and cooking outdoors, before moving inside for an intimate dinner peppered with great conversation. Hawker Menu […]


Degustar in Pictures

Hey, Food Network – We Need to Talk…


I have a dilemma. I received the message below from the Food Network the other day, asking for help publicizing their casting call for “Worst Cooks in America”. To the best of my knowledge, every blogger in Atlanta got the same. I know they’re just running a list and not really reading any of the […]
