Raduni is the latest entry into the Indian restaurant derby. It is located in the Publix center at Shallowford and I-85---go all the way in the back. They offer lunch buffets seven days a week and did a healthy business in take-out while I was there. But I was surprised that it is also set up as a nice sit-down restaurant. The tablecloths and painting of the Taj Majal help make this a place where you want to stay and eat. The service was very gracious and helpful.

The papadum were very good with a real taste of lentils. Let's face it, some papadum taste like wallpaper paste. But a good papadum is hard to beat. The chutneys were very good; I think my favorite was the onion.

I think this was the best vegetable korma I have had in quite some time. The sauce carried a rich mix of spices, many done with whole leaves and nuts; the different notes came through very clearly. And it was creamy without being overwhelming.

My garlic naan was very puffy and airy. The garlic was fresh and flavorful.

I also left with some takeout for a Super Bowl visit to the Contes: vegetable samosas, wings, and more papadum. Everything was a hit.

Radumi is a welcome addition and I will be back. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced.

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…
