Salad Express

Across the street from Cheshire Square, in the clock tower portion of La Vista Walk is Salad Express. There is only one other Salad express location, in Peachtree City, so I’d not heard of them before. Now, the hubs and I have grown up somewhat from when we first started the Buford Highway Food Expedition […]


Once upon a time, I would have to drag my lazy butt 45+ minutes out to Suwanee to get good ramen at Umaido – but no more! Now, there is Hajime on Cheshire Bridge in the Cheshire Square shopping center. Using the same wonderful noodles, and practically the same menu all around, Hajime is a […]

Rain Thai and Sushi Bar

I have a little bit of prejudice against thai restaurants. Not because I don’t like thai food, but because I feel like I can’t really get to know it… it feels like thai restaurants are more likely to be americanized, like many chinese restaurants are. And the name “Rain Thai and Sushi Bar” did not […]

8° Fahrenheit Ice Cream

8° Fahrenheit Ice Cream brings the thai rolled ice cream concept to Atlanta with a locations in Duluth, Doraville, and one set to open in Marietta soon. As with many such trends that are attributed to other cultures, I raised my eyebrow and turned to the internet for more background information. Indeed, I am pleased […]

The Bayou Boil Restaurant and Bar

A lot has changed since our first jaunt up Buford Highway, and one up them is a little mini-explosion of seafood boil type places. The Bayou Boil had better reviews on Yelp, so that is where we started. Plus it’s in the old Little Szechuan spot and the restaurant was good before it moved, so […]

Good Luck Gourmet

Opening earlier this year in the original Gu’s Bistro space, Good Luck Gourmet has been serving the food featured in the Instagram photos that have been making me swoon since early this summer. Finally, the hubs and I got around to checking the place out and having a good old-fashioned pig out. Perfect comfort food […]

Clark & Schwenks Seafood & Oyster Bar

Just recently I was happily invited to dine at Clark & Schwenks Seafood & Oyster Bar. This swank, pseudo-midcentury seafood restaurant has been here on Cobb Parkway all this time, and I never knew. As you can see the inside is pretty upscale, belying its strip shopping center location and busy parking lot. C&S seems […]


Recently, Adam and I made our way over to Zyka in Decatur, where Scott Boulevard and Church Street meet, which we have heard an awful lot about over the years – and all of it praise. This local favorite is located in what was once a decently-sized church, taking up most of the former church […]

Chama Gaucha

A while back (ahem, in June) a bunch of coworkers and I headed to the newly opened Chama Gaucha in Buckhead for a division celebration. I was still in awe of how close Chama Gaucha was to the venerable institution of Fogo de Chao – you could easily walk the four blocks between the two […]

A Columbus Round Up

A while back Adam and I hit the road with fellow foodies from Marie, Let’s Eat! as our guides to visit Georgia’s second-largest city, Columbus. We brought our eating A-game and visited a number of notable eateries around town. Chicken Comer Originally opened in 1929, Chicken Comer has changed hands a few times but it […]

Thirteen Pies

Sadly Thirteen Pies closed in May of 2016. This place will be sorely missed! The Friday lunch crew and I checked out Thirteen Pies recently, at Anish’s suggestion. Thirteen Pies is known for its ultra-thin crusts, twelve standard pizza pies, and changeable thirteenth pizza flavor. Upon reading the menu, the Spotted Trotter Guanciale Farm Egg […]

Stockyard Burgers And Bones

I recently went to Stockyard Burgers And Bones on the Marietta Square with my husband and parents, to celebrate my mom’s birthday and Mother’s Day. We started off our meal with a little seating snafu. The space is a bit tight, so they were seating four people at what I consider to be two-person tables; […]

Bug Chocolates from Delysia Chocolatier

I am interested in all food and culture, and in some parts of the world, this includes insects. They are cheap to raise and/or easy to forage, high in protein, don’t require vast swaths of land for grazing, apparently, can be delicious. I’ve never found any restaurant in Atlanta or my travels that features bugs […]


Masti recently opened up in the Toco Hills location formerly occupied by Cibo Rustico and Mirko Pasta. I was grateful to see that we’d shaken things up a bit with a non-italian food concept. Not that I don’t love italian food, but it was just time for a change. Coming to us from the same […]

Señor Patrón

Señor Patrón is a local mexican joint with a location in Midtown and another in John’s Creek. It first came to my attention when it was listed in Yelp’s Mexican Must-Haves in Atlanta. Adam and I went to check it out recently, as we never have gotten over the loss of our college favorite El […]


Naanstop started out in 2011 as a food truck in Los Angeles, and became a brick-and-mortar operation in downtown Atlanta in 2012. Now there also is a second location in Buckhead, and that is the location I visited. I’ve actually visited three times so far, due to the convenience and quality of the food. I’ve […]


Adam and I recently dined at SOHO Vinings with many other notable Atlanta food bloggers, at an event organized by Malika of the Association of Food Bloggers. We’d never been to this neighborhood favorite, even though it has been around since 1997. Our evening kicked off with a white peach bellini and a ginger cucumber […]
