It only took me a few meals in Thailand to realize that anyone who’d ever served me Thai food in Atlanta had lied to me.
So where to begin? It’s been a busy Spring (that’s me under the CAFE sign there) and I’ve had a hard time keeping up with the bloggin’. So here’s the quick rundown, complete with oversights and omissions and quite a few crappy phone pics…. Thiên Thanh Clowns make me sad (and freak me out quite […]
My kitchen kind of looks like this right now – only not really…. I’m moving into a new house soon and I find myself dreading one thing more than any other – packing my kitchen. Every time I move find myself putting it off until the last minute. I keep convincing myself that if I […]
So you want to know how lazy I’ve become? I visited Heirloom Market BBQ for the first time a couple of weeks ago and took my time writing about it. Then one Tuesday morning I decided that I’ve become too lazy and I set about working on this post. Not 10 minutes later, Gene over […]
I’ve always been a bit puzzled by the lack of Filipino restaurants in Atlanta. There is a Filipino community here, and the food, while unfamiliar to most Americans, is a delicious amalgam of Hispanic, Malaysian, Chinese and who knows what else.

Gai Yang (BBQ Chicken with sticky rice) You may well know that I’m a PITA about Thai food. I’ve pretty much given up on thinking that there is anything even passable as Thai in Atlanta. Years ago, a Thai friend pointed out that Thaicoon had a special Sunday “brunch” menu of actual Thai street food. […]
I’d started to think things were getting a little boring with the Vietnamese restaurant scene around here. The old favorites were still there – Quan Ba 9, Yany Express, Phở Dai Loi, Phở #1, but I was craving something new… The problem with that is that with Viet cuisine, “new” often translates to “more of […]
I’m not going into a lot of detail about Fritti ( Jimmy covered his experience well at Eat It, Atlanta and the U Restaurants web site goes into detail about their pizza qualifications). I was just out traipsing around Inman Park with friends and we stopped in on a nice afternoon for some snacks on […]
You see, this is why you don’t want to miss the Buford Highway Blogger EatUps. A few pics from the Chinatown Food Court last week. Stay tuned for information on more upcoming Eatups.
