Update: LT Organic Farm and Restaurant

I posted an entry on LT Organic after my last visit two years ago. I am posting again because this place is seriously underhyped. The term farm-to-table does not do it justice---your table is in the middle of the farm. The dining room's picture window looks out over this peaceful scene. Every aspect of this family-run enterprise contributes to inner peace: the beautiful place, the delicious and easy-to-digest food, the gracious service.

Here is the menu for the evening: some chicken, wonderful vegetables, and wonderful spices and flavors from both India and South America.

Here is my palte. The chicken is underneath the sautéed spinach and coconut, with rice below that. One of the reasons this place is so peaceful is that everything is perfectly cooked. The meat and vegetables are soft enough to be very easy on your system yet still retain texture and flavor. You can work your way around the plate and find an amazing variety of tastes.

I couldn't resist dessert and was able to taste both. The cupcake was very moist and rich. The cheesecake was rich and dense. They were perfectly sized, just enough to give me a satisfying end to a wonderful meal.

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…

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.
