Food in Atlanta | August 2013

There’s so much food in Atlanta that I’ve been wanting to try, The Optimist, Bocca Lupo, Gun Show being a few of them. I ask for new suggestions and the queue keeps getting longer and longer, but then I’m always torn between trying a new place and eating at all the places I already know. My comfort foods. Although they say that Korean food is amazing out in LA, we’ve only been to Koreatown twice in the 7 months that we’ve lived here. And since I’m not great in the kitchen, there was a growing void for Korean food that needed to be filled. On our Atlanta visit, we did try a few new places, but I needed to get my Korean food fix stat.

Food in Atlanta Where We Frequent | August 2013:

Traditional Korean (Han-shik):

  • Woo Nam Jeong Stone Bowl House (Doraville) – love their kimchi jjigae. They make it better than me.
  • Yet Tuh (Doraville) – Great soo jae bi. Regular tastes better than the spicy. Didn’t like their kimchi jjigae.
  • So Kong Dong (Doraville) – Their naeng myun (cold noodle soup) got better.

Korean Fast Food / Western Influenced (Bun-Shik):

  • Dan Moo Ji (Duluth) – we always order the tuna kimbap to go
  • Don Quixote (Doraville) – maybe it’s nostalgic, but I still love their donkatsu the best.


  • Quoc Huong Banh Mi Fast Food (Doraville) – C minus health rating, but still the best banh mi I’ve tried in Atlanta.
  • Nam Phuong (Doraville) – for whatever reason our church loves to eat here.

Doughnuts / Desserts:


  • Waffle House (Norcross) – not a visit to the South if you don’t at least stop for one meal preferably after midnight.


  • Brickstore Pub (Decatur) – the fish n chips & brunswick stew are so good! also great beer selection

As for the new… this was the first time I ever tried a dossant (Star Provision’s version of the cronut) after hearing about the cronut craze. I had no idea what to expect, but it was pretty good. Pictured below is the regular. We also ordered ones with cream and chocolate too. I have yet to try other competitors, so I don’t have much to compare with, but I’d say these are worth a try. There isn’t a long wait on weekdays, but they do sell out if you come later in the day.

New Atlanta Food We Tried | August 2013:
Love it! I’m going to be a regular!:
Pretty good, but I want to try what else is out there:
  • Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano (Midtown) – Didn’t meet our high hopes IMO. So, we’ll probably be only going next door to Antico instead.
  • South City Kitchen (Midtown) – pretty good, but not at the top of my list to go back.
Not going back unless you pay for my meal, and I still might be kicking and screaming:

Where’s a place you like to frequent? What have you tried lately that you really like?

  1. My boyfriend and I tried C’om, a Vietnamese restaurant on Buford Hwy at the recommendation of a friend and it was AWESOME.
    A roach crawled out of the pepper jar?! **faints**

    1. yeah, we’ve tried c’om as well. :) we like that place too, but i’m not sure why it never made it into our regular rotation. and the roach.. well… i was so terrified, i could not stare straight at it.. but it was something creepy crawler. i’m guessing that’s what it was.
