Decatur: Sun in My Belly

Sun in My Belly is a funky/hip location near the railroad tracks in Decatur. It grew out of a catering service and, impressively, serves three meals a day. Unfortunately, I found the service to be aloof and my waitress distracted---I had to give her my order twice.

I found everything on my salmon plate to be very well executed but without much striking flavor. The glaze on the salmon had both sweet and umami elements but neither was distinct. The kale had a nice texture but not a lot of flavor. The couscous was similarly uneventful.

If I had to guess, I would chalk up both of my concerns about this place to its roots in catering: the service from a lack of affinity for the hospitality aspects of restaurants and the shy flavors from a need to satisfy large numbers of people at once.
