Taqueria La Oaxaquena | El Norteno

April 9, 2014

Taqueria La Oaxaquena in Jonesboro. Worth the drive. I want to go back with a few people and try a bunch of things, including another tlayuda, for which they are known. Yes, it’s even better than a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza. And the white corn tortillas used for the tacos are some of the smoothest, best […]

General Muir Fried Chicken

April 6, 2014

Before I finally tasted the fried chicken at The General Muir, I sampled it at home. You see, Todd Ginsberg’s Friday-night-only special was featured in Garden & Gun, and I was intrigued by the process they had conceived. The article, penned by Atlanta’s Kim Severson, may be a bit hyperbolic when claiming that this recipe […]

My Favorite Yelper

April 1, 2014

This is not an April Fool’s joke. I actually do use Yelp with some frequency, though I rarely read reviews. To me, Yelp’s best use is as a directory service. They’ve built the most comprehensive index of restaurants out there, at least for now, as Google is coming on strong – hours and full restaurant […]

Don Antonio by Starita

March 17, 2014

It would be fair to call me more than a little skeptical when I heard of the opening of Don Antonio by Starita in the former STG space in Buckhead. It’s not that the original Don Antonio in New York didn’t have pedigree – it does, and I was quite familiar with them as they […]

More Wings For Your Face

March 14, 2014

There’s a lot of eating and gym time involved in the hot wing guidance I provide to my readers. I’m probably the worst performer at my Crossfit gym, but I bet I could kill a burpee, hot wing, handstand push-up, single-malt Scotch workout. The wings above are from the last TON TON Ramen pop-up at […]

Cooking, Here and There

March 6, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some recent cooking endeavors, so let’s do that. My brother and I cooked some of this post together, as we tend to do, with these first dishes being from the Japanese Soul Cooking cookbook. I bought it for him for Christmas so I could read it and we […]

Finally, I tried the Meatstick, the formerly off-menu burger at One Eared Stag. It’s a top selection on their brunch menu, based on my dining room observations. I’ll save you the suspense, to me it’s a top burger in Atlanta. I think I like it more than Bocado and The General Muir. Muss & Turner’s, […]

BoccaLupo – Visit #3 out of many to come

March 2, 2014

BoccaLupo is one of the best new spots in Atlanta, and I couldn’t have been happier to have a recent date night there with my pasta loving wife. I dig the menu offerings. It’s basically a handful of stellar appetizers, and a bunch of pasta. I mean a lot of pasta. So many Italian restaurants have […]
