Pine Mountain GA: Three Lil' Pigs BBQ

Pine Mountain is a cute little town. Three Lil' Pigs is on the main drag. It's in an old-fashioned style of burger building, with seating both outside and inside. The staff is very friendly and helpful. When I asked the gentleman at the counter what I should order, he first said "everything," then recommended the ribs since I had mentioned that I was hungry.

Here is the generous spread. The half rack came wrapped in foil, where it had been for only a moment given the lack of drippings at the bottom. The ribs themselves were OK, nothing special. The hot sauce was tangy and tasty, not so hot as to make me tear up but quite flavorful. The sides were quite good. The green beans (lima? I'm never sure about green beans) were my favorites with a soft texture and buttery taste. The red beans were also very good. The slaw was excellent and the pickle slices on top were a nice touch. The bread was thick and of higher quality than you typically see as a BBQ side; it was nicely toasted, too.

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...
