Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Food Court

After checking in for my flight, I grabbed breakfast at the food court inside security. Dim sum, especially vegetarian, seemed like a great idea.

After a few minutes, I picked up my beautiful meal. The vegetarian dumplings were fresh, steamy, and delicious without being heavy. The soup was delicious and nutritious. My pot of tea made the meal feel sophisticated.

But the flight back to Atlanta was long, so I decided that the perfect chaser was a MOS Burger. It's a Japanese chain that is well-represented in Taiwan. MOS probably means "most" in this case, but nerds know the acronym as Metal Oxide Semiconductor, the type of transistor that powers your computer. All my EE friends love to visit this place and I hadn't eaten one of their burgers in years.

They serve a wide range of foods in burger format. I stuck with the tried-and-true wagyu beef burger. It's pretty tasty: lightly toasted bun, thick and juicy tomato, and beefy beef. I left for my gate fully satisfied.

Decatur: Golden Buddha

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...
