Decatur: Mysore Woodlands

Mysore Woodlands is the latest addition to Patel Plaza in Decatur. The restaurant offers south Indian vegetarian cuisine. It offers table service; it also has a lunch buffet. Here is my chat selection, a cold potato and pea salad served with wispy little puffs. I'm not sure of the official way to eat this, so I dipped the top of the puff into the sauce to soften it, bit off the top, then filled it with potatoes and peas. My main course was a vegetable uppadum. This is, I believe, a lentil pancake, filled with a variety of colorful vegetables. It was tasty and very filling. Mysore Woodlands on Urbanspoon

Chamblee: Las Delicas De La Abuela

Las Delicas De La Abuela recently opened next to Buford Highway Farmers Market; this seems to be their second location after Duluth. The space is large and very family friendly, with plenty of big tables and room for kids to run around. The service was very friendly. And the food was great. Here is one pair of pages from the menu. The food is Colombian; eggs seem to be a big theme. I ordered the Cacuela de Frijol. They also serve several breakfast items. As you can see, the presentation of the dish is interesting and inviting. I put the egg in first and slowly added the corn cake and rice. The beans in the stew give it a hearty feel and texture. It also includes all sorts of other tidbits, some cooked with the beans and others added at the last minute. The pork skin was softened up by the beans and is the perfect complement. The egg flavor was slightly overwhelmed by the beans but it added a good dose of protein. The avocado gave some brightness to the dish, both visual…

Update: Bagel Palace

Bagel Palace is a breakfast mainstay. I keep finding new dishes to enjoy there. This is the veggie chili and cheese omelet. The chili gives the omelet a great umami taste; it also gives the omelet heft and rib-stickingness. The bagel is, as always, outstanding.

Detroit: Mudgie's

My first stop upon rolling into Detroit was Mudgie's. It's located in the Corktown neighborhood, a largely intact old neighborhood on the south side of downtown. The restaurant is located in house that has been lovingly restored without being cloying. It also houses a nice wine store. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. This sandwich is a beauty, isn't it? The bread is pumpernickel, the meat is pastrami, and everything is accompanied by carmelized onions and a locally made mustard. It was not only beautiful but also truly outstanding to eat. The outside of the sandwich was perfectly toasting, giving a texture contrast to the interior. The term "melts in your mouth" is a cliché but that is the only way to describe how I felt eating this sandwich. The thinly sliced meat giving a little toothiness. But eating the sandwich took no effort. All those ingredients simply melded together in my mouth. The experience was spectacular. I highly recommen…
