Le Fat Made All My Dreams Come True

Maybe it’s because of my epic trip last year, but lately I am crushing hard on Vietnamese food. Usually in order to get the good stuff, you have to venture into an international part of town like Norcross or Buford Highway. Not that there’s anything wrong with that – I do it all the time. […]

Suwanee Park Tavern

We finally went to check out Suwanee Town Center recently. In addition to a picturesque green space, some shops and some fountains for the kids to play in, it also has of course a bunch of restaurants. Many of them are chains – Ippolito’s, Mellow Mushroom, Five Guys, etc. – but there were also some […]

La Mei Zi – Works for me!

It seems like as soon as I discover and fall in love with a restaurant in this town, it changes its menu or closes. I loved the Taiwanese TJ House in Duluth when I first tried it, but before I could even return for round two, I heard that they had changed their menu entirely […]

Ba Bellies – Norcross, Georgia

I’ve been hitting up Norcross hard lately. My latest stop was Ba Bellies near Peachtree Corners. Described as an Asian gastropub, and affiliated with the delicious Vietnamese restaurant, Nam Phuong, also in Norcross, it basically sounded like heaven on earth to me. However, they inexplicably only serve brunch on both Saturday and Sunday (instead of […]

Mojitos Cuban Bistro – Historic Norcross

I love me some Cuban food, so I was excited to try Mojitos in historic Norcross. I was also excited because I had never been to this part of Norcross, but had seen it many times on one of my favorite shows, ABC’s Resurrection, which filmed there but was unfortunately not resurrected for a third […]

My Favorite Things about Krog Street Market

I have always loved Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward for its historic, laid-back charm. With the addition of Krog Street Market, it’s only gotten better. While the market is a bit of a destination, it’s just small and quirky enough to fit into the neighborhood and add to its charm versus detract from it. A modern-day […]

Caffe Bene and Sweet Hut — Two Delicious Asian Treats

Lately I am living for Asian bakeries/cafes. There are two in particular that have my heart. Caffé Bene I first discovered Caffé Bene in Flushing, Queens. My husband and I stayed at a boutique hotel there over Thanksgiving last year and noticed that this place was abuzz even on a holiday. I got a massive […]

Gunshow – All About the ‘Wow Factor’

Kevin Gillespie’s Gunshow is all about the ‘wow factor,’ and I must say, I was wowed. Instead of getting my friends another lame gift card for Christmas, I decided to treat them to a night at this magical eatery. Never being able to predict Friday night traffic in Atlanta, I arrived about 30 minutes before […]

The Top 10 Things I Ate (and Drank) in 2015

Between attending the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, taking a spontaneous trip to Vietnam, and trying a bunch of new restaurants, 2015 was an epic food year for me (hence I had to hire a personal trainer in December). I really stuffed my face good, so it’s hard to pick just a few of the […]

Cakes & Ale Has Class! (Oh, and really good food…)

Cakes & Ale is a classy joint! No wonder Christiane Lauterbach likes it so much. I arrived during the Decatur Book Festival promptly at 11:30 am on a Saturday. Since it was just opening time, I was blissfully their very first customer of the day. Seated in a gorgeous dining room and served water in […]
