Sufi's

Hyesoon recommended Sufi's. She likes its combination of good food and late hours. I dropped by last night for what passes for a late-night meal for me. As you can see, the interior is quite elegant. The service was generally very good, although I must say that the rest room had absolutely no paper towels.

This is the table salad that starts off the meal. It has mint and some other herb I couldn't identify, walnuts, radishes, butter, cheese, and bread. Mixing and matching is part of the fun.

My main course was the veggie stew. I had another dish in mind when I ordered so I was a little surprised by what I got, but it was very good. The sauce was moderately spicy; it left a nice burn on my lips at the end of the meal. The stew includes eggplant, potatoes, and an assortment of other vegetables. It comes with a large serving of rice but I think the best way to enjoy it is Southern style---dunk your bread. Wiping the bowl clean is a sign of a good meal.

Decatur: Janet's Kitchen

I just enjoyed a delicious, hearty dinner at Janet's Kitchen. It is located on Clairmont near Scott Boulevard. The restaurant is well-organized for both dining in and takeout. The prices are quite reasonable, too. The owners, who are very nice people who clearly love what they do, explained that Janet is his mom and that they named the restaurant after her. My pork adobo was hearty and delicious. The sauce was tangy, nicely salty, and very, very porky. I actually ate all the beans first---creamy and delicious. The rice was sticky, all the better for sopping up gravy. I also used the buttery cornbread to soak up the sauce.

Decatur: Golden Buddha

category: interesting Chinese/Korean restaurant
summary: ask for the special menu---ordering the right thing is important

Hyesoon and I went to Golden Buddha on Clairmont for dinner. I've driven by there dozens of times and never been in. Even if I had, I probably wouldn't have ordered the right things. It turns out that this restaurant has a big reputation among Georgia Tech students as a good place for Chinese/Korean food that is good and reasonable. The restaurant is totally nondescript and, like many Asian restaurants, have a special menu that they generally give to Asians but not Causasians. I suspect that some of their dishes are ho-hum, but I definitely enjoyed our meal from the special menu.
My favorite dish was the seafood soup (which, by the way, is on the regular menu).  This large bowl is a half-serving.  It is chock full of seafood, a healthy dose of noodles, and a little greenery.  The broth was delicious. It was spicy but just enough to tickle your tongue. The tas…

Norcross: Martin's

Grant has said good things about Martin's, which has several locations around town. A fly-by during lunch time gave me the opportunity to orbit and land the Martin's on Jimmy Carter Boulevard. This is my deluxe burger, which did not disappoint. The quarter-pound patty was hand formed and cooked with just a bit of char around the edge. The deluxe toppings were fresh. The bun was pretty good and gave a platform for a mayonnaise-style sauce. The result was just sloppy enough to be fun without embarrassing myself. The result was a very satisfying burger experience.
