Independence Day Breakfast at the Galaxy Diner

Breakfast spots are somewhat rare on a good day. Finding one that is open on the 4th of July adds to the difficulty factory. Luckily, Galaxy Diner came through. It's been awhile since I was there and I really enjoyed my visit to this corner of Chamblee east of I-85 and north of I-285. As always, the service was very gracious and welcoming. The food was just what I needed. This is the sort of place that every neighborhood should have.

My veggie omelet was nicely cooked and filled with onion, green pepper, and mushroom. The home fries were very homey. I ordered the sausage gravy as add-on for my biscuit and I'm really glad I did. The gray was packed with bits of sausage and very smooth.

I also caught sight of this corned beef hash. This dish is a rarity these days and I'm glad that Galaxy cultivates it.

Decatur: Golden Buddha

category: interesting Chinese/Korean restaurant
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...
