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.

Aurora CO: Cedar Creek Pub

Cedar Creek Pub is located on the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado. My CU Denver friends and I adjourned there for good food and discussion. I ordered the fish and chips. The fish was excellent: crispy, fluffy beer batter coating tender, moist cod. The fries were great, too.

Kalona IA: JW's Foods

We took a drive on a beautiful day to Kalona and had a very enjoyable lunch at JW's Foods. Kalona is a small town about 20 miles south of I-80 year Iowa City. The area seems to be a mix of Amish and Mennonite. JW's foods is a grocery store with a restaurant inside; it is located at the edge of town near the grain silos. The service was very helpful and friendly. The food was pretty darn good. I couldn't resist the tenderloin sandwich and I wasn't disappointed. As is traditional for these sandwiches, the tenderloin hangs out well over the bun. The pork tender was tasty and tender with excellent breading. Debbie had a beautiful turkey sandwich handmade from the deli. She reports that everything, from the bread to the meat, was outstanding.

Sandy Springs: Fanoos

Roswell Road near the Perimeter hosts a big string of middle Eastern restaurants. I've sampled a few (that I didn't yet review, in case you're wondering) and I am slowly working my way down the road. The other night it was Fanoos's turn. I enjoy middle Eastern food because it offers interesting flavors in lighter forms.

My appetizer was a tomato concoction served with a flat bread very reminiscent of an Indian naan. It was accompanied by cheese, walnuts, and olives. None of the food at Fanoos is heavily spiced.

My entree was a chicken skewer and rice with cherries (!). I ate the chicken and rice separately. I probably should have deskewered it, cut it up, and mixed it with the rice.
