My thoughts on the Atlanta food scene, with occasional forays into the world beyond. We talk about both restaurant reviews and recipes.

Chamblee: Chinatown Food Court
I must have driven past Chinatown Food Court a hundred times without stopping in. As you can see, the front is pretty nondescript. My friends Ellen and Andy from Atlanta Healthy Adventures finally enticed me there. I've been there several times since and not always for the excellent vegetarian food.
I am a sucker for dan dan noodles (noodles with cold peanut sauce) from Chong Qing Hot Pot. But this time I tried Hong Kong BBQ. I've had my eye on the ducks hanging in their window for quite some time. The duck was succulent; I loved its saltiness. The big surprise was the eggplant. It came with shrimp in a fish sauce, a preparation I've never seen before. The eggplant wasn't quite as greasy as some preparations. The fish sauce was an excellent accompaniment to the eggplant.
