Decatur: Honest

Honest is the latest restaurant in Patel Plaza. The menu is vegetarian and based on South Indian dishes. The walls are adorned with photos of the company's beginnings as a street food cart in India. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

My lunch was an onion chili uttapam. The red onion on a flat bread reminded me a little of certain pizzas that use red onion. I am not sure of the name of the light green sauce but it is always my favorite. This was a very good, hearty meal. You don't have to be Indian to have your belly warmed and your mind calmed by Indian comfort food.

Aurora CO: Cedar Creek Pub

Cedar Creek Pub is located on the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado. My CU Denver friends and I adjourned there for good food and discussion. I ordered the fish and chips. The fish was excellent: crispy, fluffy beer batter coating tender, moist cod. The fries were great, too.

Kalona IA: JW's Foods

We took a drive on a beautiful day to Kalona and had a very enjoyable lunch at JW's Foods. Kalona is a small town about 20 miles south of I-80 year Iowa City. The area seems to be a mix of Amish and Mennonite. JW's foods is a grocery store with a restaurant inside; it is located at the edge of town near the grain silos. The service was very helpful and friendly. The food was pretty darn good. I couldn't resist the tenderloin sandwich and I wasn't disappointed. As is traditional for these sandwiches, the tenderloin hangs out well over the bun. The pork tender was tasty and tender with excellent breading. Debbie had a beautiful turkey sandwich handmade from the deli. She reports that everything, from the bread to the meat, was outstanding.

Sandy Springs: Fanoos

Roswell Road near the Perimeter hosts a big string of middle Eastern restaurants. I've sampled a few (that I didn't yet review, in case you're wondering) and I am slowly working my way down the road. The other night it was Fanoos's turn. I enjoy middle Eastern food because it offers interesting flavors in lighter forms.

My appetizer was a tomato concoction served with a flat bread very reminiscent of an Indian naan. It was accompanied by cheese, walnuts, and olives. None of the food at Fanoos is heavily spiced.

My entree was a chicken skewer and rice with cherries (!). I ate the chicken and rice separately. I probably should have deskewered it, cut it up, and mixed it with the rice.
