Pijiu Belly

I was excited to check out Pijiu Belly last week with the Association of Food Bloggers, especially because it was right in the middle of where I used to live back in college. I actually tried to remember what used to be in its exact spot (since it only opened up just last fall), but […]

White Windmill Bakery and Cafe

After a lovely meal at Cho Sun Ok, Adam, Ashley, Stephen and I moseyed up the road to White Windmill Bakery and Cafe. This is like a Mozart, Paris Baguette, or Sweet Hut – a pretty nice asian-american bakery with drinks and desserts. This place is big, and it was crowded when we were there […]


A couple of weeks ago, coworkers Anthony, Anish and I caught lunch with our dear friend and ex-coworker Jaimyn, to get his colorful commentary and send him on his way to greener pastures in homeland of New York. Located in the Marriott Courtyard in downtown Decatur, Makan has been open for about a month, serving […]

SunO Dessert

Adam and I have gone to SunO for a number of years, probably since late 2008 or early 2009, when a friend introduced us to the original location in Duluth. We really took a shine to the place and would visit it whenever we were up that way – or we’d find a reason to […]

Buford Highway Farmers Market

This week Adam and I finally got to dine at the Buford Highway Farmers Market food court. We’ve been to the Buford Highway Farmers Market many times, as we regularly shop there, but we’d never eaten anything other than samples before. On a Sunday afternoon, we dropped by to get acquainted with the food court/cafeteria […]

J Buffalo Wings

Started by Chung Man Ji in 1996 at this very location on Buford Highway, along the street side of Northeast Plaza, J Buffalo Wings has been growing ever since and now 16 locations. I believe that this location became something else for a while, and has only recently returned to being a J Buffalo Wings. […]

Kung Fu Tea

A new place has opened since we passed through the area that Milano Bakery and So Kong Dong inhabit: Kung Fu Tea. Adam and I popped in a couple of weeks ago to check it out. Kung Fu Tea is a brightly and boldly-branded smallish chain with about 19 locations in five states, most of […]

Oriental Bakery

Wanting to cleanse our palate of Dim Sum Heaven, the gang and I headed over to Oriental Bakery, just a few doors down the Pinetree Plaza. This is a family store, and was being manned solo by nice young man. He was patient while we eyeballed all the treats. He also informed us that there […]

Bo Bo Garden

About a week ago, the hubs and I headed out to to Bo Bo Garden with empty bellies and a posse of friends: Ashley, Stephen and Mary. I was anticipating a fine meal after reading Marie, Let’s Eat!’s post on Bo Bo Garden in the spring of this year. We were quickly seated in a […]

Master Bakery

The Master Bakery is a small bakery in a strip shopping center across and slightly more north of Sweet Hut on Buford Highway. This is a well-kept but small asian bakery offering a similar but much smaller selection of baked goods, as well as some fresh vegetables. I came with an entourage: my husband, Ashley, […]

Sweet Hut Bakery & Cafe

This week brings us to Sweet Hut Bakery and Cafe (and the implied announcement that we’re going to start including bakeries) and its bright, cheery awnings overlooking Buford Highway from the highest point in Asian Square. I think Sweet Hut is one of the better-known establishments on Buford Highway; I hear people talking about it […]

Tin Drum Asia Cafe

This week I had the opportunity to attend a blogger night at Tin Drum Asia Cafe’s new Roswell location. Once I got over the sheer horror of trying to get up that way during rush hour, I had a fantastic time that completely turned around my preconceptions about Tin Drum. Tin Drum was started in […]
