Moab UT: Jailhouse Cafe

I just enjoyed an outstanding breakfast at the Jailhouse Cafe in Moab. This place has earned its name, having served as the county jail in the late 1800s. They have outdoor seating but I ate in the charming jailhouse, complete with historical photos. The service was extremely warm and welcoming.

This is my red pepper, mozzarella, and pesto omelet. The eggs were perfectly cooked---fluffy, light, and nourishing. The fillings were very fresh and full of flavor. I haven't seen this combination before but it worked very well. The pesto was a great idea. The whole wheat toast was of outstanding quality. The potatoes were cooked with just the right amount of crust on each cube.

I also ordered a ginger pancake and I'm glad I did. The pancake was soft and fluffy with the right kiss of ginger. It was served with an apple butter with a nice touch of ginger---I will have to try adding some ginger to my next batch of apple butter.


The next morning, I went back for another breakfast. This is their outstanding multi-grain waffle. These people really care about their food

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…

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.

Honolulu: LuLu's

I took an early morning walk down Waikiki Beach to enjoy the sunrise. It was a very enjoyable walk. Hawaiians rise early, the better to enjoy the surf. I stopped for breakfast at LuLu's, just across the street from the beach. The second floor location gives a superb view. My veggie omelet was homey and satisfying. This is good, coffee house style food. And what a view...
