Glacier National Park: Two Dog Flats Grill

Two Dog Flats is located in the Rising Sun Motor Inn on the eastern side of Glacier National Park. This is the less-traveled side of the park, which is a pity because it is beautiful. But when you come, expect limited dining options. If you don't eat here, you can drive another 10 miles to St. Mary, which has perhaps three restaurants and a gas station with an enticing variety of jerky and chips. Luckily, Two Dog Flags has very good food and very gracious service.

I decided to try the lamb burger for a change both from beef and from the elk that you find everywhere in the park (including here). This turned out to be a delicious choice. The lamb had a distinctively lambey taste that was still delicate. It was balanced nicely by the feta cheese, which gave a creamy texture and a mellow note.

My server suggested this pound cake for dessert and his recommendation was spot on. The pound cake was moist and sweet; the strawberries were very fresh and firm. And as he pointed out, the serving size was small enough to be refreshing without being too heavy.

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...
