Dandy Donuts. A review.

 Do not miss the apple crumb. This is one that is sliced up and filled with apples. The cream cheese is also sliced open an spread with cream cheese pastry cream.  I actually said "wow" after my first bite.

Breadwinner Cafe and Bakery. A review.

 Delicious fresh soup of pureed cucumber and yogurt with a very slight yet distinct and pleasant hit of raw garlic.  So fresh and balanced I just loved every single creamy spoonful.

Fox Atlanta gets it right with The Brickery's Ceasar Burger

It's clear they know the right ratio of beef-to-bun-to-flavorfully messy sauce. It's a ceasar salad on a cheddar burger essentially and I can't think of anything better.  It doesn't need bacon. It doesn't need tomatoes. It doesn't need mustard. It is perfect as is and is most definitely the star of the show in this establishment.

E. 48th Street Market. A review.

I got a salami and provolone sandwich on the bread I've been hearing about and sure enough, it did not disappoint.  Thin outer crisp crust and pillowy interior with just enough chew but not so much your jaw hurts by the 4th bite.

Doc Chey's Noodle House. A review.

Fast service, clean seating area, bathrooms and I can't think of a bad thing to say.  It's a safe beet on Memorial drive although not the most adventurous.

Sage Woodfire Tavern. A review.

Sage has a beautiful blue light bar area if you want cocktails and eats from the bar menu. Outdoor seating also can enjoy bar bites as well as a full restaurant menu as the bar opens up to the outside.

Peking restaurant. A review.

The menu is your standard chinese fare. Nothing cutting edge and that's just fine. Don't we all order the same two or three things all of our lives at these types of places?   My waiter is charming and accomodating and the owner checks on me 3 or 4 times as well. He's a gracious host.

Ssam Burger. A review.

The burgers are thick and cooked to order, medium unless you specify otherwise. Beefy flavor and nice brioche buns.

Shoya Izakaya. A review.

Like chicken karaage i.e. Japanese fried chicken nuggets (I mean how can you resist ordering it?)   It's both breast and thigh meat with a crisp thin crunchy coat. No sauce but served in a basket. Color me confused but happy.  I ate every one of them.

Hankook Taqueria. A review.

Bibam bop is a whole lotta food for not a whole lotta money. The container felt like it was 2 lbs-no lie.  The big rice steamers behind the assembly line get a workout here and doubtless much of that is for this dish.

Marlowe's Tavern. A review.

 loaded up potato chips. They come adorned with blue cheese dressing (lots of chunks sprinkled on vs all of it being mixed in the dressing), real bacon bits (points!), green onion and tomatoes but I nixed those vile things.  Now, this is beer bar food I like. I was licking my fingers like some neaderthal that doesn't have proper table manners. I could blame it on the beer but I hadn't even had half of my self poured glass yet.

Star Cafe. A review

Cornbread that is actually cornbread and not corn cake!  Nice mealy yet tender crumb. A hint of sweet but again, not corn-cakey. Just very corny and I mean that in the best possible way.
